Gathering of the Guilds 2018 – Whew!

I’m sitting in a small coffee shop in my town with a big decaf Americano, it’s Thursday, and I have sort of decompressed from the Gathering of the Guilds this week, and sort of not. I keep dreaming that I will sit on my couch with a lovely book, perhaps in the late afternoon sun, […]

Gathering of the Guilds, 2018!

It’s April! I have been so remiss in blog entries for a couple months, and I do apologize. I know, I know, you missed my missives so. I will try to make up for it with this one. I hope all of you are doing well right now, happy in life and love and family. […]

Happy January!

I’m sitting here in my jewelry studio, trying to subdue a headache by will alone, mostly because I want to work on this blog instead of wandering upstairs searching for a Tylenol. There’s so much to share! I hope the holidays were a time of happiness for you, however you spent them. Mine were very […]

End of year Housecleaning (or remodeling)

It’s been quiet at juiceglass.com. At least, as far as the world can see. But things are happening in the background. I’m hoping by the beginning of the year to start selling online through this website, which is something I have never done. It requires a lot of changes, both to the site, and to […]

Catchup

Summer got away! Every year I try to keep it around enticing it with froofy drinks and such, but it always wants independence. It sure took up a lot of my work time this season, I realized it had been weeks since I posted. But that’s how summer should be, perhaps, full of memory making. […]

Let the Monkeys In!

I love summer. Long, lazy days, warm evenings, lots of ice cold drinks. But, like all of those who work and are parents, I recognize and must work through the harder parts of summer…keeping your kiddo entertained and enriched, to at least a degree, during the time school is out. So while I love the […]

Bit the bullet…..and then… I must wait.

Tools. They come in handy. They can change how work is done. In my work, tools can be physical objects that help me bend metal, form it different ways, polish and sand it faster than I could with files and sandpaper. Last year, my big tool purchase was a flexshaft, which is used in so […]

Fish Fry

I look forward to summer a little more each year, I think. Today it’s raining here in the Portland, OR area, and I kinda like it. Soon the rains will stop for a few months and things will heat up, and while summer is a wonderful time to enjoy the sun while surrounded by the […]
