What’s on tap?
Not a whole lot.  It’s snowy and cold outside, and well – I just don’t function very well when it’s under 75 degrees outside.

I am working on a few craft projects:
I’m finishing up a New Baby Boy Mini Album commissioned by a lady I met in November.  Here are a couple pictures of some of the pages.  I will post a complete review of the finished album.

I’m also working on a jewelry order.
One of my musician friends – Mr. Chris Caffery of Trans-Siberian Orchestra –  saves all his guitar strings from the TSO tours and then I make bracelets out of them.  He then sells them on his website.  Check them out in his web store here … www.chriscaffery.com.

And I’ve been playing around with an art journal.
I have never done mixed media before, and certainly not water color, so it is a very steep learning curve for me.  I have thrown away 98% of the pages, but here are a couple I’ve kept.  I will be doodling around in this journal some more if I have time.

Other than that …
I also have some laundry to do – which I probably won’t do.  And I’ll visit my Mom!  

Have a great weekend everyone!

My Birthday Weekend!

My birthday weekend was absolutely fantastic!

I got to:

  • see my friend Bridgette in Cincinnati;
  • see Star Wars: The Last Jedi;
  • see Jeff Dunham: Passively Aggressive; and
  • hang out with my awesome nieces.

For my own self, I:

  • got my haircut;
  • got my eyebrows waxed;
  • got a scalp massage; and
  • got a new some new ink.

Me and my girl, Raven, 2001. I miss her so very much! She is now immortalized on my ribs.

In general:

  • I took Friday off work and got to sleep in a while,
  • played around with some of my crafty things;
  • visited my Mom for her 95th birthday; and
  • and basically had an awesome 3-day weekend.

So, Finally Fridayis going to be a regular series here on Six Months @ A Time.
On Finally Friday, we will share what is on tap for the weekend!

So this Sunday – January 28 – is my 54th birthday! 

FRIDAY!
My birthday weekend is actually STARTING on Friday this week because I am taking Friday off of work:

1) because Friday is my Mom’s 95th birthday, so I plan to spend some of the morning with her; and

2) to spend Friday night in Cincinnati with my friend Bridgette.  We are going to dinner and then to see the new Star Wars movie (yes, I know – I’m late).

SATURDAY!
Saturday I will be driving home from Cincinnati in the morning and then going with Kelsey to her tattoo appointment in the afternoon.  She has booked a half-day appointment (3 hours) so if there is any time left, Carmelo said he’d do some more ink on me!  WOO HOO potential birthday ink!

untitledSUNDAY!
On Sunday – my actual birthday – Tammy, Tracey, Kelsey and I are going to see Jeff Dunham at The Schottenstein Center!  I hope he brings Achmed and Walter!  My two favs!
