A Fun Party


We had Brian's coworkers from the mainland over for dinner last night and a good time was had by all.  For some reason we didn't take any pictures.  What a doof.  

But today little Allie was sitting in my chair looking too cute for words so I took her picture.  She's SOOO cute!

And here are some pictures of my new bracelets!  I hope you like them.

Oh Hi.  Been a while, hunh?  Nothing fun happened, that's why.  Anyway, I have a new ring box that my friend Ginger sent me. If you look to your right >>>>> and click on Gingerbell's Gifts, you will see her sites.  Anyhow, I made Ginger these tiny little clay frogs.  In return, she sent me some goodies.  Some of which was her wonderful pineapple soap.  My cupboard smells YUM!  So, this is what I did with the ceramic ring box she sent.  :)  

The mysterious helicopters were out again today scaring our cats and generally disrupting the peace.  I have NO idea what they were doing but the last time they were out there, all hell broke loose around here.  So, I hid in my room and didn't do anything until they left.  :D

So, I have discovered that I have no personality.  Well, that's not entirely true.  Apparently I have the personality of a blind mole rat in hibernation.  Or maybe an amoeba.  How bad is THAT?  All these years I am thinking I'm just full of it only to find from the wretched Dr. Jung (I spit in his general direction) that I am boring.  Good thing he left the planet decades ago or I would be tracking him down with the intention of ripping out his epiglottis.  :(  So, you can go click on this link to see if you have any personality.  You just have to do better than I did!

The Christmas Elf


Still in Christmas mode!  Here's my cute little elf.  Ok, he's not Legolas but what can I say.  He will be showing up on my Etsy, too.  He's sitting on an Altoids box.  You know... those boxes are perfect to put a gift card in.  :D

The World's Best Tools

I just heard from my long-lost friend Patti who is one of the coolest women in the world.  She owns the company called Wired Up Beads (I'm pretty sure she has a partner, too) Wired Up Beads is great and if you are in need of any form of tools for beading and/or wire work, I highly recommend Wubbers.  They are just super.  Patti has done some magical thing to them so they don't scratch your wire while you are working with it.  I think it's some Texas secret.  :)  Please look off to your right now and then click on Patti's site, ok?  She has free tutes and all kinds of goodies.  I have a whole set of Wubbers myself but I need more!  I figure I will just set aside a week's worth of massage money and go visit her!  Yay!  New Wubbers!  Yay, findings!  Yay... all kinds of goodies!  Oh boy, I can hardly wait to go Wubber shopping!

Thoughts On The Upcoming Christmas Season

Ok, I can hear all of you from here!  No bellyaching!  Christmas is on the way!  Truly, it is.  :)  So, I have been thinking about what to make.  A few years ago I made a bunch of ornaments.  They didn't sell until the next year when I practically sold out.  Naturally, eeejit that I am, I made more.  Did they sell last year?  They did not.  There was a huge sign visible to all but me that screamed, "Do NOT buy Christmas ornaments from Moe this year!"  Hah.  This year I am getting out that light the cops use to look for blood traces to make sure that sign is no where around.  AND... I am making ornaments.  I made a very cool mokume gane star in pinks and silver.  VERY nice.  It is cooking its little heart out as we speak.  I will make more stars as I am a big fan of stars.

And my friend informs me that about 100 billion Altoids boxes are on their way to me so I will be covering them, too.  Yes, Elaine, some will be winging their way to Canada to live with you, too.  Except you will have to wash them.  :)

So, what do you all think about stars for ornaments?  Anybody got any fun ideas of other ornaments that you think would be cute?  And is there a color for Christmas this year?  Ever year there is something besides the traditional.  I wonder what it is this year?  Anyone know?  It's probably puce.  :D

Oh brother....

Have you ever decided you are going to do something then got sidetracked?  Of course you have. Here is what my ridiculous day looked like...
First, I decided that I wanted some built in shelves and cupboards and bookcases, etc.   So, I call the ever-wonderful Charlie who can make anything.  So, I call Charlie and tell him what I want.

 The big sweetie says sure, he will come towards the end of the week.  Now, you gotta understand that he works on Hawaiian time.  Maybe he will arrive at the end of the week.  Maybe not.  But, I don't care as he does a fabulous job.  And, I will have TONS of storage in my clay room.  WELL worth waiting for.  But first I have to get rid of the chest of drawers and 2 night stands.  I decide I will sell them.  Down to the basement to see if there are any boxes.  I nab two and I'm back and ready to go.  Oh shoot....

Wasn't I going to make my Hunnibunni some chili?  Sure I was.  Let's do that first.  Off to the kitchen.  Hold everything!  I have to pee.  Off to the bathroom.  Oh NO!  Is that really 4 pounds of litter on the floor?  Sigh.... ok, clean the entire bathroom.  That's all done so I toddle back into my craft room all set.  I get settled on the floor all ready to pack up stuff... Poop.  Chili.

Back to the kitchen where I make some wuss chili.  Ok, while I'm there I also make some meatless loaf as I have all the ingredients.  Ok, that's all done NOW I can go empty the 2 nigh stands.  Nope.  I have to do some laundry.  So, I put a load in then settle onto the floor.  Well, crap.  The box I nabbed is falling apart.  Off I go for tape.  

I am pulling long strips of tape off the roll as I walk back into the clay room.  Allie, our darling little black and white kitty does NOT like that sound.  She gets airborn really easy.  So, she flies over my head and out the door.  Poor Als.

By now I am thinking seriously about wine but it's only 10AM.  Sigh......  But, I am tough!  I return to the floor and tape the box.  Godzilla couldn't wreck this box now.  

Ok, I empty out one night stand.  Look at all those yoga tapes!  Hmm, I think they should go to the library as I only actually use two of the tapes.  So, I toddle off to get a library bag.  Uh oh.  Look at all that stuff way up high on that shelf.  Was is all that?  Hmmm, I have to clean that.  Ok, now I have a big bag full for the library.  

So, I got back into finish up in my room...ick.  I really ought to polish the brass on the set I want to sell.  I search high and low for the brass polish.  I KNOW I have some.  So, I think... it must be hiding on the two shelves above the washer and dryer.  So.... yep, I wind up cleaning those two shelves.  Did I find the brass polish?  I did not.  It has been beamed to some foreign planet.

I put in another load then go back to my room.  Ok, I am definitely going to finish up these night stands.  I actually get the bottom of one cleaned out when I decide that some of this crap can go downstairs into our storage.  

Yep, I toddle downstairs and take a look.  Nope.  No way am I tackling that job now.  I stuff the stuff in there and run away.

Back to the craft room.  I took one look at all the stuff on my floor and decided I needed a break.  So, here I am.  Sigh.... I reallyreallyreally have to go finish.  Ever have one of these days?
