Well, the plumber finished putting in the new drain pipe on Friday and we spent the weekend cleaning up the kitchen. It was a mess! I don't think we're out of the woods yet, but hoping that the small leak that is happening now is an easy fix.

We're making progress on the studio too. I'll post some images soon of how it's looking. I'm still trying to get the contractor to show up to put the new roof on (we've been trying to get the roof done since February...)

We're headed up to the Pocono Mountains this weekend for another guild show. Please stop by and say hi if you can. Follow this link for directions and show times http://www.pacrafts.com/pacrafts/site/default.asp

What a Beauty!

Thank you to Kerry Vine, one of my customers, who sent in this picture of a necklace she created using a focal bead I made. Isn't it lovely!! You can see more of Kerry's work at www.dvinedzines.com

Never a dull, or dry moment

Well, our latest adventure has to do with our house. We had a stain start to develop in the kitchen ceiling and so we called the plumber. He started by just replacing the seal on the upstairs toilet, but the stain kept growing. Since we couldn't tell where the leak was coming from, we now have a wonderful 2 foot by 6 foot hole in our kitchen ceiling and plaster dust everywhere!! The leak is coming from the drain pipe that is as old as the house (80+ years). Everytime we flush the upstairs toilet the person in the kitchen gets a shower....ick!! Aaron put up a make shift bucket to catch the water. I think we'll be eating out until this is fixed!!

NYC Trip

My parents came to visit on Sunday and so we ran up to NYC to see my brother. We had a great time at the Museum of Natural History. The exhibition about Darwin and evolution was really interesting!

We also had pizza and ice cream down by the Brooklyn bridge across from lower Manhattan. I loved this sign at the ice cream parlor!
