Things are smokin' around here.... quite literally.
It has been one mostly hot and dry summer here in Interior Alaska.
I have probably had more time to sit down and have some solid studio time with large chunks of alone time this summer
It was kind of cold at the beginning of the season but it went from winter to full on summer in a matter of weeks. ( That's me trying to keep warm at the farmer's market)
Enjoying new drink concoctions in the late night sun.
Mate infused vodka with pandanus leaf flavoring.
( Asian meets South American fusion)
Lolling about on the lawn
Smoking fresh caught salmon
Seeing my honey and my son off on their archaeology expedition
Cass-man, my son... yeah I have a 30 year old son now!
Making lots of crusty beads
and a focal bead or two
Unreal orange crush fruit loops Tang nuggets
and then some torch fired enameling
I was very excited with the results of this combination
Misbehaving beads that were taught a lesson
and just a few headpins
I had been feeling like I had been blogging more than I actually did here. That's because I had been blogging over at Love My Art Jewelry Blog a few times and maybe I just ran out of time with things to say here but here's what you may have missed from me.
Now it's going to be the busiest week ever with my stepson getting married and we're hosting the reception for 100 or so at our place and the very next day I fly off to Maine to visit with my folks and my brother from Bali with his family.
So sorry if I haven't been visiting and commenting on your fine blogs, I've been a bit of a lurker lately.
Ciao for now, Kim
