Oh me oh my...you guys! These lovelies are fresh out of the kiln and I’m swooning!! They are so posh with the 22kt gold stripe! Yep...gold. Get them while there hot! (Literally) I will have some this weekend at the @memphismakermarket —-> These make great gifts but you need to order by Monday to get it in time for Christmas! They are now in my online shop! ❤️☕️
Currently hooking up an I.V. with coffee. The “to do” list is long but my coffee is strong! 💪🏻☕️ I love to rhyme, I do it all the time. LOl...okay, I’ll stop now and take a bow. Errr...my bad. Don’t be mad? Someone stop me... Perhaps I need more sleep...(tempting) 🤓🤐
Well, it definitely feels more like the holidays because it is COLD here in Memphis. I am not a fan. I would rather sweat...give me all the heat. Technically, if it’s 60 or below...that’s cold to me so...when it’s 30, I basically turn into a statue. Sigh.... Oh well, it’s not all terrible. At least I live in the south. We really only have a few months of actual cold. If I’m bundled up properly...the crisp air is actually refreshing. There...some positivity. 😂❤️ Are you a snow bird or a beach bunny? 🦆🐰
“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12 —————— This verse is typically heard with regards to marriage. But, it can also mean that people should not be alone. I am not a peopley person but, I am grateful for the people that I come into contact on a daily basis, whether that is studio time, coffee meetings or events. Being a creative, especially if you do it full time can quite often be lonely. To all my creatives out there, make sure you don’t isolate yourselves. We need each other and the world needs you. ❤️ (This has been an episode of “Pondering Thoughts).

It’s getting cold out there y’all. I for one am not a fan of cold. Give me all of the warmth and sweat. Lol. It really isn’t that cold yet but...I know that winter is coming. What’s your favorite season? ————— These juicy pieces may be available at the @memphisflyer Crafts and Drafts this weekend!! ❤️❤️
Stuck between tired and trying to get all the things done and being thankful that I have things to do. It’s hard to find a balance during the busy season. ——————- After my 12 hour work day yesterday... we attempted to finish tiling our backsplash. I went to bed at 11:30 and I believe he went to bed at 3am. Yep. Give us all the coffee and prayers today! ☕️🙏🏻 #weekdaywarriors #tiredwarriors
Is there an election today? Lol...I kid. ————- But seriously, for the love of God people...go vote. Democrat, Independent, Republican...just do it.
Sweet Baby Jesus!! I have kept it in long enough! These minimalist nativity scenes are now available in my shop (the link is in my bio)! They are made to order however, if you get lucky enough to see me at an event...I may have some available. ❤️
So, I’ve been making a few things. ❤️ ——— I am in the St. George’s art show this year. I will have several large pieces available. This lovely, long legged lady is one of them. She stands at 8” tall by 6” wide. If you aren’t local, have no fear...I will be putting them as made to order pieces in my online shop. If you want to see her in person, she will be at St. George’s this week. I will post the days and times of the show in my stories. More to come...❤️
Tomorrow, I will be posting a special giveaway! Make sure you stay tuned for the deets (that is short for details...because, I’m cool like that).
Weird topic. I love to eat. Like, give me all the cheese dip and pasta and bread. I’ve been pretty lucky because I have good genes...However, it is catching up with me. Especially when I don’t work out like I use to. I saw a pic of myself about 6 years ago and was like, hmmm, yep I need to get back there. I am not a big girl but when your “fat” pants don’t fit, it’s time. And you know what I’m talking about....every girl has “fat” pants. I have several stages of these pants and I refuse to buy any larger pants. I guess I’m telling you this so I can be held accountable. I am going to try some exercise but, eating better is my goal. Feel free to ask me how I’m doing or to slap a burger out of my mouth. Hopefully, these are the only Golden Arches I will see for a while. #willpoweroverhappyhour #yeahrightnotgivingupwine #willexcerciseforwine 💪🏻🍷🏋🏼♀️
