My blog is not only about the arts and crafts business but about life in general. My hope is to inspire you, inform you, and make your current beverage of choice squirt out your nose. I've chosen "Dog's Head Red", a fine red table wine that's a cut above good ol' Mad Dog. A very tiny cut above. It's not quite as refined as "Drive 'er Home", my other favorite, but quite swanky, none the less. Read quickly, before it's all too blurry.

I'm Home and I'm HOT (and not in a good way!)

Ok, I'm home. I thought one of my cactus lamps would be appropriate to feature since I am apparently living in the only desert in upstate New York. It is almost 100 degrees. I'm broke, barely met expenses at this past weekend's show, I'm sitting in a pool of sweat, my dog peed on the carpet again, which smells no matter how you clean it in this heat and someone just mistook me for a red and white checkered cow in the not so flattering sundress I'm wearing. My bank lost $300.00. (Check your statements, people!) All 95 lbs. of Kelly Ripa just walked out on the stage of "Live with Regis and Kelly", which has cemented my cruddy mood. So, fellow artisans, what do you do when you feel life has hit the crapper? Well, we went on a wine tour last weekend and bought ourselves a couple cases of delicious vino. So, I will keep my eyes on the clock until it's PC to toss back a few, then I will go directly to the refrigerator, take out of my favorite wine, ("Scandelicious", yum!), remove the cork, and drink directly from the bottle. Cheers, y'all!

Soon to be slightly sloshed,



  1. I love your blog! I read it all. I do heartily apologize, however--for anything at all, just don't point that augur in my direction!

  2. Hang in there lamp lady! I feel your turn-me-into-liquid-mush mood! Wine's effect can accelerate in this heat, or you may already know that. I've been in a funk for over a year now, but your inspiring craft may help me get over myself LOL ~NY Crafter on Hiatus, karen
