Reverse Thrust


Metal mania this week turned into Mega Mama detail. Our poor Gus-Gus got the flu and needed lots of TLC and a round-the-clock Mommy. Full-on flu has gripped our youngest and all things nasty that come with it, all in two hour increments… Daddy-O would have gladly stepped in to switch out bedding, make 7-Up & chicken soup runs and rinse the cool forehead washcloths, but since I work at home it made much more sense for me to go for the last few nights without sleep. While it did throw a monkey wrench into my all-day weld-a-thons, I was able to get all of my hand work, beading and tagging done for the Raven ornaments while keeping a vigil over the offspring. While Gus napped I was even able to

wear my Spenard Farmers Market volunteer Vendor Chair hat and follow up with farmers and artisans, update the website and answer e-mails from interested new vendors. Working on Market stuff makes me actually think we will eventually have a summer –though I had my doubts as 5” of new snow fell yesterday during a routine spring storm. I’m ready to be out in the shop again only if my headache and body aches are not the beginning of Gus’ virus…aaaack.


Check out the cool poster Kate P. designed for our FUNdraiser for the Spenard Farmers Market! If you're in town, mark your calendars because the concert is sure to be a hot ticket!

I went through the flu thing a couple of weeks ago with Wesley, luckily I didn't get it, can you imagine with all that I have had going on! My raven flag is so happy with my new studio, it looks so great blowing in the breeze with the sun shining through it!
