Happy Monday

Did you have a nice Mother's day and at least spend time with your family, furry or otherwise?
Family is such a broad term these days.
There are many ways to translate that word.
Interpret it the way that makes you happy, makes you whole, and makes you... family!!
Love is the bottom line.
It is OK to make your own.

I worked a lot over the weekend.

Makin's Clay cutter sets
 I edited pictures and finished the MOM plaque I put up on the blog yesterday. I worked on the Etsy stores and loaded up a ton of stuff in The Hoarders Closet. Some pearl-ex sets and a cutter set with 7 Makin's clay cutter sets. Some more findings.

Pearl-ex powders, a versatile artist's tool. Mix with gum arabic to make your own paints, lacquer, liquid clay, and resins.
They can also be brushed right on to the surface of raw clay!
The possibilities are endless.

I took and edited the pictures for those too. I have to do as much as I can on the weekend. So much for sleeping till noon and doing absolutely nothing, LOL!

These are the interference colors. They are like magic and the color they are shows up best on black but they will let any color they are painted over give them a different cast!
They are great for painters and will make awesome highlights in eyes and on lips.

Yesterday Madi, me and the hubs and my two girls went out to lunch for mom's day.
Killer Pizza from Mars, yum, good pizza and nice people and great big huge salads. It was nice, they even made me a gluten free pizza no crust, sauce, cheese and pepperoni. It was so good but a lot of cheese and pepperoni. I won't eat a ton of those and if I do, I will definitely have to add a ton of veggies. It was yummy, and I got to eat "Pizza" with everyone else.
My daughter said that is probably what most people do, add a ton of veggies. I just thought I would get the pizza I like.
How can it get any better than this?
I love pepperoni pizza, so much that I will even eat what most consider bad pepperoni pizza, I do prefer the good kind though. Being on a gluten free diet has definitely put a cramp in that one.
Except for Udi's pizza crusts I would never get to eat pizza and now I have another alternative available.
It was a good day, and I had a blast with my family.
I am still not feeling the best.
Getting better everyday though.
Have a great week!!


  1. Your day sounded awesome!!YAY for you and your yummy sounding pizza. I haven't had a good pizza since I left NY. No good bagels either.

  2. Don't you just love the feeling of accomplishment? I hope you are feeling like yourself soon. Your Mom plaque is lovely!

  3. I did have a great day. First time we had all been in one place in a long time.
    A good bagel is very hard to find.
    I do not like cakey bagels.

  4. I am thrilled that you were able to spend time with the kids and have pizza too! You so deserve some fun! I have missed you my friend! Love you!


  5. I do Lisa!
    Thank you, it will be good to be over this.
    Thanks, I really like it too!
    I am going to do more plaques.
    I have 2 more in the works now.

  6. Me too! Dede I do deserve it don't I?
    Hope you had a wonderful Mother's day too!
    I miss you too!
    I am so sorry for falling off the blog bus.

  7. I'm going to check your etsy site next but wanted to say I'm glad you had a good Mothers day even if you did have to work. At least you got to enjoy some pizza!

  8. Hope you are feeling 100% really soon! Take care,

  9. Thanks Jan, I have to work on the weekends so I am used to it. I do not get much done with Madi during the week.
    She thinks gramma is there to play with her all day.
    I don't really feel bad about working on the weekend, it is just different than the norm and I live that! ;-D
    The pizza was great.


I am so glad you stopped by. Please leave your words of wisdom. I look forward to them and I so enjoy reading them all.
Live to love, Love to create, and create to connect.
