Look what I got in the mail! Artist Amy Rice sent me these lovely gocco prints! I love them! She has a lovely blog too!

Well that was an impromptu blog vacation! Sorry about the lack of interesting events over here. We have been busy dealing with life. Not much art going on for the last few weeks. Everything has come to a stand still as we try to deal with the imminent move to South Carolina. For weeks we did not know the exact location of the Blue Cross position Paul had been hired for. Alas, we now know it is Charleston, South Carolina. He is to go down there next Wednesday. He will be gone for most of the month :(..... This will be a very huge challenge for our family. We are all very close and not used to being apart. It is not fair to take Caden out of school in the middle of the year, so we will be here in Michigan until the end of the school year. We will be able to visit during Spring Break and also we have our first vacation since our honeymoon ten years ago scheduled for May. At the end of May, we will be residing in South Carolina, near the ocean, hopefully soaking up the warm ocean air! As for our house here....we are not selling yet. We may rent it out. That all remains to be seen.

C'mon, who would want to leave this icy wonderland behind? (hehe) Actually, I love the change of seasons, although this has been a particularly long winter....we would love to stay in Michigan, but welcome to upcoming adventure, and look forward to making our home in South Carolina. We have heard such lovely things about the area.

In other news... Caden lost his first tooth on Saturday, March 3rd, 2007! One tooth down, lots to go! He took it really well, not a tear was shed. The tooth fairy traded him a two dollar bill for his tooth. Caden is quite proud of this achievement!

he finally got to put his tooth pillow to work!

Our cross-eyed Siamese, Suki, finally got to come home after four weeks at the vet. She still has cold symptoms, but we think that she has environmental allergies.

Zoe is not too happy that Suki came back....


I also have some shop related news. Paul surprised me by scooping up the domain for buggabu! He had been trying to get it for quite some time, so when it came available he snatched it right up. Right now we are using a free web design service, so it isn't spectacular, but it is all mine. It is under construction, but you are welcome to come and visit: www.buggabu.com ! My satin glazes came in this week, so keep a look out for some finished jewelry and other goodies! In addition, we splurged and used up a lot of our paypal money and bought a digital SLR camera, I cannot wait for it to come and take some better pictures!

Ok, if you made it this far, you deserve a pat on the back! Sorry for the super long winded post. I will be trying to update more often! Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there, thanks for your comment, nueralgia sucks doesn't it. It's been not too bad for about a year but with losing my job, my dog and having my home uninhabitable it's flared up bad with stress. But I once I get the joy of a new dog through my bones I do find the positive effects outweigh the physical stresses.

Poor you with you sick little cat, that's a long time to be away, you must be so happy now on return.
