Special new shuttles coming right up!

I am excited to present to you my newest ceramic shuttles. I have been experimenting again (you know I thrive on that). I have finally found some permanent enamels so that I can now paint landscapes and other things that catch my fancy. This is something I have wanted to do since I started producing my one of kind ceramic shuttles four years ago. I could just never find the right medium until now.
Here are the first completed shuttles. They are all hand painted by yours truly. I will offer them up for sale this coming week in the Etsy shop.

Where am I finding the time to do all this you ask?? Well, I just don't sleep anymore and while I am not sleeping I might as well be doing something right?

Now let's get one thing straight, my lack of sleep has very little to do with Miss Piccadilly. She is wonderful and has been sleeping through the night since she was 8 weeks old. It is my fault entirely and I accept all the blame. I just cannot sleep when DH is away...and now that I am acting as a single mom and taking care of every living soul under my roof and everything else that consists of keeping a household, sleep evades me.

So with all that is going on in my life I am unable to attend Shuttlebirds this year. I am sure everyone will understand. I will dearly miss my favorite event of the year...and I will miss all my favorite peeps! There are some exciting new teachers this year so if you are at all able to attend I definitely recommend it!

Miss P is now 12 weeks old...can you believe it? She is my little muse. She gives me energy and makes me laugh every day. What a precious little "old soul" she is!

In case anyone is wondering how sweet pea pumpkin britches miracle baby is sleeping through the night is all due to the wonderful BabyWise method. Since birth we have been working on this plan. The book promised she would start sleeping through the night between 8 and 12 weeks and sure enough it works like a charm. The main benefit from her predictable sleeping habits is that she is a very happy baby. YAY...I certainly need that!

The LOML is captivated and wants to know if she is a little blonde girl. LOL He, having had 3 daughters, is partial to girls. Come to think of it, at church gatherings, he’s always in the kitchen helping the ladies!
She is soooo cute and I’m glad she is a sleeper; that helps a lot. My last, BB, was a little sleeper and full of laughter when she was awake.
Rest when you can and feel like it...even a cat nap with baby is sleep enough if you are used to not getting much sleep.
