Every year around this time I can see a little light at the end of the tunnel with that Thanksgiving pause, I call it. Everything slows down just for a moment for the turkey, table settings, family travel and so forth. Only to start right back up into hyper shopping/selling mode for Christmas. It is a break none the less, so I will take what I can get.

For the last 7 days I have looked into my future binoculars towards this mini break so I can Chill baby LOL

I have been so busy barely time to fuse glass and get studio time with all the shows and running here and there. I finally had to tell my self to chill out and this little guy came to mind. I painted and fired this little penguin this afternoon as I was listening to New Soul by Yael Naïm. “I’m a new soul, I came to this strange world hoping I could learn a bit bout how to give n take.” That after all is why we are all here right?

Alway remember to chill :))

Hey and don’t forget to comment in my blog and be entered to win $20 to spend in my shop- Drawing is December 1st.

Well as promised I have to show you my trade I made with my newest flickr friend M-C1

She has some lovely items in her shop cards, art, photography and buttons but ya know every girl has got to have a mirror and whatmirror.jpg better way to do it, than in fun beeczarcardsandgifts style. These little button style pocket mirrors are sturdy and great for your purse and as I told Marie-Claire owner of (beeczarcardsandgifts) what goes better with jewelry than a mirror? Gotta check your look in these cute button mirrors and here is the greatest thing she can customize them for you. When I got my package I opened it up to find a sweet surprise, she had printed a picture of my favorite kitten on the back of one of the button mirrors. That was the best ya know?

What a great trade, what a great lady please check out her Etsy shop beeczarcardsandgifts

Thanks M-C

upcyclesam2.jpgFor 8 years now I have been using a diamond grinder and bits. So my collection of used bits, is crazy. I refuse to add them to land fill, I know things like glass and metal just never break down. I have tried the recycled bits and I have to say not impressed.

This is my son Sam’s dream creation he was so cute. Over Christmas break we brain Stormed about what to do with my use grinder bits “Robots MOM”Sam Said! That is what we did. Hand painted by Sam (12 yrs old) wired and beaded by MOM- He is so proud 🙂 and so am I .

We talk about how to make the world better not about what is wrong with the world- I love you Sam

You can purchase Robot Sam from my Etsy shop http://shoozles.etsy.com
