Aquarium and Fishies and Pie

My husband and I took our granddaughter to the local aquarium last Saturday and I got some inspiration for making a few fishies as a bonus. They are listed in my Etsy shop for purchase.
I am also learning how to knit and thought I would keep a little photo diary of my progress on here. I knitted a scarf in the 6th grade and that is the last time I did it. So it is fun to try again. I made a hat on round needles and now I am working on a pair of socks. Ambitious I know! A friend of mine sent me some much needed instructions and offered help should I need it. She also said that I should have no problem. I'm not sure she heard me when I said I just started. =)
So here is the first sock and I am getting a little nervous because I have only about one more inch before I have to do the heel. Wish me luck!
Cami (granddaughter) and I made a couple of cherry pies after the trip to the aquarium. Handing down my grandma's recipe (altho she is a little young yet). She had a lot of fun making cut outs for the top as you can see.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Dad. I miss you!

This one takes a little imagination. Dad loved to ride with mom on their motorcycle, so I decided to try and make one and had NO idea where to start or how to go about it. This is what I came up with and if you squint a little and don't look at the other side you will see it. =).
Have a great day. I love you mom!

Hello! I participated in this event last year and had so much fun I decided I wanted to do it again. I think it is a cool idea and a neat way to see others blogs and make new friends. Go check out the site for all the details. My offering is pictured. It is a lampwork glass heart created by me with glass, silver foil and frit using an oxygen/propane torch.

Please leave a comment (with contact info) to participate in the drawing to be held February 12. Have a great day! Pam

(you need to have a current blog to participate, or contact information available)

If you can't wait and want one now. I have hearts for sale in my Etsy shop. I also do custom orders. Thanks!

Happy New Year (a little late) :)

Hi all! Happy New Year! It is going to be a terrific year I just know it. I have lots of plans and goals that I will be working on this year and business expansion (hopefully) if I can get it all done.

Had a great Christmas with my family here and in Illinois. I don't get to go home often enough and sure wish that it wasn't so far away. I live in Utah and it is a two day drive to Illinois with my husband, our 80 lb springer spaniel Tuck (who insists on sitting on the passengers lap in the front seat the whole way), and our new kitty (who was a real trooper and rode in the backseat).

They are a lot of fun though, and kitty is getting friendlier every day and letting us pet him more and pick him up. His real name is Hissy if that tells you anything.

Had our alternator go out on our car about 50 miles from our destination in Illinois. What a pain in the butt. Mom had to come and bring us a battery so we could make it home.

We had a thunderstorm one night when we were there. We had lots of thunder and lightening and rain which melted all the ice. Strange weather. But I miss the thunderstorms. Tuck doesn't like them at all.

So now I am back to work and trying to get stuff done since we were gone. Our Christmas tree is still up. Hopefully this weekend we will put it away.

I haven't made any beads since before Christmas but I have a few that I haven't taken pictures of or listed yet. Maybe I will get to that in the morning. Check back to see.

My husband made some really cool wooden pandora beads that I need to list. I lined them in copper and they are really neat and original. I will try to get the picture of them up here as well.

Got to go back to work for now. More later! Pam
