New donut charms

Boston Cream

Dunkin Donuts is now research. Woo-hoo. I am just going to have to try a different kind each week. :o)


It's not going well so far. Lets hope they turn it around, there's plenty of season left. Rangers are done. Not a good day for sports in this house.

Polymer Clay

I am going to be making some charms using polymer clay. I am going to start simple then hopefully move on to some more detailed creations.

The donut are one of my first attempts. They are about 0.5 inches in diameter.
I am going to make a bunch in different colors and sell them for $4.00 a pair.

I hope the glaze and bails come in the mail today, I can't wait to get the pendants made and up for sale on my website. I am hoping they sell well. If there is interest I'll invest a bit more money and get a bunch made for summer craft fairs etc. These are going to be totally customizable which should make them fun to make.

Mets v Reds Game 2

Wow, over 4 hours and what a nail bitter at the end. 2 runs up with bases loaded in the 9th. Thank goodness K Rod got out of that one. I can't face another season of blown saves. Mets are 2-0 now and the Yanks are 0-2. Love it!!!!

W: M. Pelfrey (1-0, 7.20); L: E. Volquez (0-1, 8.31); SV: F. Rodriguez (2) HR: NYM: C. Delgado (1). CIN: J. Votto (1).

Mets v Reds Game 2 (Season & Series)

Game 2 tonight, let's hope the Mets can make it another win, sweeping the opening series would be great.

Pelfrey v Volquez

Last nights TV - 4/7/09

Shows watched

American Idol
The Mentalist
House (DVR 4/6/09)

I'm so glad I was home last night and not relying on the DVR for Idol. I would have missed another great performance from Adam. I don't see how he isn't going to win this season. I think the bottom three this week should be Matt, Anoop and Scott. Hard to say who will go home, my choice would be Scott, it's wasn't a good song.

An average episode of the Mentalist, a bit too predictable for me though, the has been actress did it to save her dying career, so obvious.

90210, Looking forward to seeing what Tori Spelling can bring to this show, the Silver drama was all a bit boring. Adrianna is the most interesting character right now.

House, OMG!! Kutner gone. I have read a lot of disbelief about him being the one and how people would have liked to have seen the other characters killed off, I don't think they get it but that's why they would choose Kutner, it's much more dramatic to kill off a beloved character, it reminds me of when Dr. Beckett was killed off on Stargate Atlantis. It generates more conversations and more publicity for the show when people are so shocked. It was great tv.

I still have to watch Medium, Heroes, The Real Housewives of NY and Dollhouse. They are waiting on the DVR.

New jewelry coming soon

I'm excited about making scrabble tile pendants. I have the tiles and the pictures just waiting for the glaze and bails to arrive so that I can post them for sale on my website. I'm still working on my own site, I have to find the time with the kids and trying to sell the house.

Day One

Decided to start a blog. There's a lot going on right now so this will be a nice record of how things unfold. The house is on the market and my jewelry making business is official. I really hope the house sells quickly so I can go back to having time and money for my business.
