Where has the time Gone

These last few weeks have been a blur..With the end of the school year activites,parties,awards,recitals..Momma's head was starting to spin..and yet..when the dust began to settle... I look back at every moment...and I am so thankful and blessed for every second.

So now,with summer plans underway..I'm planning on....getting some sleep...okokok..maybe thats asking to much..a girl can dream..

Really though..all I really want is some play time..I'm keeping my fingers crossed with our "Summer House Rule number #3"..
Momma gets Play time in Studio from 8am-10am with no interuptions..

am I asking to much again..My kids are wonderful they let Momma play..or else Momma gets Cranky..hehhehhee.

With our first couple of days off I managed to squeeze out some goodies.

"Laughter is the best Remedy"Resin filled Pendant




"Little Bird" Soldered Brass Box Pendant



and I also had a chance to finish up my last giveaway for Maggi at http://justaddglitterandstir.blogspot.com/ Sweet Maggi had asked me if I could wait on making her pendant until her sweet beautiful Rosalind arrived..and so when Rosalind was born Maggi emailed me some photos..not just any photos..but two of the sweetest little princess photos ever!!

Introducing Rosalind and Big Sister Audrey


Thanks Maggi,for giving me such sweet inspiration to work with and allowing me to post these images.Big Hugs.

These pendants are now available in the Etsy Jewelry Shop

I'm leaving you today with another "Polar"(Joshua's best stuffed buddy)Sighting.For the first Polar sighting click HERE.


As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

There is something about the end of the school year that makes me feel how fast time is really going - it makes me dizzy! Hope you're feeling better!

I love these pendants, especially the laughter one! Beautiful work, as always, Cat!

I love your rule! I try and get up early in the summer, before the teens, so I can have some time to myself. Doesn't always work (me getting up -hahaha!). LOVE your new jewelry, and oh my gosh, I adore the pic with the polar bear. Have a wonderful week - xox Pam

are you asking too much, cat? hell no!

this piece for your friend's baby is out of this world. what a forever treasure.

so happy summer. btw, i have NO kids at home and i am punching my way (well, waving at least) my way to TIME to write. i do best with a full day at a time and i never have that,....except here in provincetown where the phone does not ring and the vacuum cleaner does not work (i lie when it suits my literary purposes, the vacuum PROBABLY works) :)

8 to 10 every day. it's yours ♥

love

Cat, it's so good to "see" you again here, missed your updates! Your schools get out so early in FL! Our have about 3 more weeks. I do love your Summer House Rule... I don't think it could work in our house sadly, afterall I still have a 2 year old running amok! :-)
Your new pendants from the give away are so sweet.... I love the dangles, they are so meaningful and will be treasured for years to come.
What a cute picture with the polar bear!

HI CAT! Oh yes, please do move to California, so we can play all the time! Wouldn't that be great. Well, wish you could come be in the class, would love to have y'all. Florida? Hmmm, have a brother in law there, who knows maybe someday?! Your pieces are just beautiful, love them all. I'm partial to birdies, so love that one more. Your sweetie with the polar bear is precious! Love him too. Take care, sending a big "bear" hug your way. Riki
