Happy Birthday

Good Day! Yep, today is my Birthday. I got some pretty flowers this morning and some nice cards. Tonight is dinner out with the family and some friends. Also, I get to eat this yummy cupcake. We had a girls night earlier in the week and we all brought desserts. I made these chocolate peanut butter cupcakes with dark chocolate icing. Oh, they are so good. I saved one for today.

Beyond the usual celebratory stuff it's going to be just another work day. But I did make sure today would not be production. I saved all my fun jobs for today. I have a kiln load of beads just about cooled. I have all kinds of new work in there. Some will become new jewelry designs for the Buyers Market that is next month, some will go up on Etsy, and some better become some jewelry for me! I haven't made anything new for myself in awhile. I also bought a wood bookshelf yesterday and I am painting and decorating it for my sewing corner. I will show you photos of all this soon, I promise to take lots of pictures today.

Also, on a side note, the Jangles studio is a wreck this week. It has sprung a leak! My storage closet has a steady trickle of water coming in the wall. Ugh. We have had record rainfall this year and the ground is thawing. I have scheduled my handyman(a.k.a. my dad) for a visit in February for some home improvement projects, including sealing up the basement. Until then, there are shelves and boxes stacked where ever there is room in the studio. It is making it tight in here.

Have a great day!
