End of the year as we know it

I have been remiss and lax lately as I have kind of felt overwhelmed on what to do next. I suppose we have all felt that way at one point or another in our lives, and so that really is no excuse. At this time of year I like to reevaluate and take stock of where I am now and where I want to be. I have written down goals, put them on the fridge to see every day, and remind myself what these goals are for and why I wrote them in the first place. I will keep track of my progress here, to keep me honest, since I’ll have others watching me.
I hope you stay tuned for the journey as I think it will be a wild ride.


I like this one. I feel like shaking the tree of life and seeing what it brings down. I’ve felt a little antsy lately, a little restless, a little slumpy grumpy, and not sure why. A little disheveled, a little bored, a little dissatisfied. I need a good tree shaking to wake me up and fix me up and get me going. Maybe it is the time of year for that kind of thing; a time to shake things up, wake things up, fix things up and start anew. That’s what the new year is for, right?

Shake it up! just don’t hurt yourself falling out of the tree, ok?



Still learning this new format of posting, and such. I have been on blogger for so long, that this is like learning a new language. I’ll get there, it’s just time-consuming for the first few months. Thanks for your patience in this transition (I sound like a company under construction, right? Well, I guess I kinda am…) and if you have any advice, please, let me know!

Tibetan prayer flags

Tibetan prayer flags

Nate saw these prayer flags some time ago and now can’t get enough of them. I have no complaints as I like them and think it adds a lot of color to the house. I’m not so sure some of my neighbors care for them though, but I really don’t give a damn.

(some of my neighbors are quite uptight if you don’t follow the same rules and live the same way they do. nosy busy-bodies)

You sure can’t miss our house. I like it. I’m hoping it keeps away the bad spirits, and nosy busy-bodies.

sending some prayers from the flags your way…


new work

new soldering work

so this weekend I did some more soldering work, testing my skills if you will. These turned out pretty good and I am happy with the soldering in the twisted wire loops. These are going in the tumbler for shine and hardening. I LOVE my tumbler. It does so much and is a great time saver.

Copper wire earrings


I like how you can see the solder on these
