so much to do...

There is so much that I want to almost seems like there's not enough time in the world to accomplish it all =) In any case, I can only do one thing at a to update you on a few things...

I love making jewelry! I made a necklace and earring set for my mom for her birthday and she LOVED it =) that made me really happy because she's so hard to shop now I know what I can do for her!

So...I took a PMC (precious metal clay) workshop and loved it! I made 2 pendants, a ring and 2 charms...from one 25g package! It was cool...I was pumped because I looked into it before I went...and had an idea for what I wanted to it all worked out!

So...I'm looking into taking the next workshop in April.

And...since I've been dating a celiac, I've been cooking wheat free...and I have to say...I made the best off the hook stew a couple of weeks ago...Pork and Apple Stew that I saw on a Bon Appetit magazine! This week...I'm thinking of making him some stir you KNOW how hard it is to fine soy sauce with no WHEAT in it...nearly impossible...EXCEPT...if you ask your dad who make Chinese food...he recommended "Thick Soy Sauce" which is what the restaurants I saw my parent's today for my mom's birthday...I asked if we could go to the Chinese I got some...and some wheat free oyster sauce, fish sauce, chili paste and bean paste...I am all ready!

Anyway, I'm excited because tomorrow I'm going to Home Depot with some friends and I'm going to get new faucets for my shower!!! Getting new stuff for the house is always fun!

This and that...

It has been quite a long time since I rambled in this space =)

Work is going well...there are a few bumps in the road, but I didn't take it because it was going to be easy. I like a challenge, and this is certainly that.

Drumming is going well...have been playing/practicing on and off for a few months. Got a bit energized last week after 2 classes...and I just took a class with Brad on Sunday. It's looking good...I want to have fun playing again! coming along. I hadn't practiced in a while, but then have been going for the past couple of weeks. I like how it makes me I am trying my very best to continue to least once a week for now, but hopefully I can ramp that up soon.

Jewelry had become a passion in the fall/winter. I made tons of gifts for people this past Christmas and I'm having a lot of fun with it. There's so much I want to do...I'm taking a PMC (Precious Metal Clay) class next week! Will post more about that later!

Love life...I usually don't like to say much about this area...because...I'll jinx it, or something, but...I'm liking the situation I'm in right now...and I want to see where it will go =) I'll leave it at that!

um...I think that's it for now. I have some updates for my 2010 shows on my henna check that out!
