Everyone at our house was full of mischief yesterday!  We are die-hard Husker fans....
As you can see by the red, white & black....
Lots of fun playing games with cousins....
And lots of "candy-sneaking-mischief" by this little "sweet tooth!"

I need to put these together as bracelets and pendants, however....

happy birthday, Carl!

Yesterday we had two milestones....I set up the new bead collar on my kiln and got busy making some new enameled copper disks.  
AND.....it was Carl's 1st birthday!  I wish he would calm down just a little bit.  He gave himself a birthday present...christmas lights,....he came up the steps of the deck carrying a string of lights he had acquired.....we're not sure how he did it.  We should have named him "Digging Chewing Houdini."

final project

My final project from the enameling class with Jess Starkel at the Lux Center.  Three weeks before finishing my project, I was overwhelmed with the thought of making a "final project!"
This piece is hammered copper disks with random holes punched then enameled with transparent green.  The copper links are repurposed copper from my dumpster 4 years ago.  I am beyond excited with how it turned out.

Hopefully, the first of many!  By the way, thanks Kelli, for the invitation and new addiction!

little trip to the zoo

My good friend and I took our boys to the zoo on Friday.  Which was much better than shopping!  There is a new butterfly pavilion, it was amazing!  I need to go back with my camera and take more pictures.
