In the Studio

 It has been a wonderful month! The weather is finally nice, and I can get in the studio and work without a problem. Not worries about heating it or snow or anything.  It is so nice.
The above photo is of me soldering a new project. So exciting!! It will the first in a new series more to come about it latter. The bottom is of all the projects in the works on my bench. It look like I have a lot of work to do. Can not wait to spend more time in there, now that I can easily.
I am excited and inspired when spring comes and the snow is all gone and things start to grow. I am not much of a winter person, it makes me hibernate. Oh well spring is here, and it time to get to work.
More updates to follow. Thanks for reading.
Have a wonder-filled day.

Bird houses

On Sunday we made some bird houses. It was a blast and a great family project. Also a great idea to do on mothers day. 
We used left over wood from our fire that we had Saturday night. Quinn and I worked on the roofs, we attached beer caps to color and funk. While Steve worked on putting the bodies of the houses together. 

 Are they not fabulous? I love them!! They add to our quirky little yard and make me smile.
 Hopefully some birds will move into them next year. I do believe that all of our other house have family's in them right now. This was a great way for all of us to spend some time outside and together making.

I hope that you all have a happy creative day. 
Thanks for reading.

Spring update

It is finally starting to get a little bit warm here in the northeast.  It is taking forever to warm up. So I am just getting motivated to be in the studio. Now that I do not have to wear five sweaters to work. Here are a couple of images from the studio. The top one is from my bench you can that the deck is set up and we have laundry on the line. I love hanging laundry out. It is a great window to work in front of. i can see most of he yard from there. The second picture is my soldering table. It works great and is right behind my bench all I have to do is turn around. you have to have that great working triangle.
I am hoping to have some completed projects for he next post. My mind has been in over drive as I have been designing and planing my next steps and series. I am very excited about it. It is going to be amazing!!
