I wasn't planning on it, but I'm going to be dragging out my sewing machine (Jolene, my modern gal, although I may see about going antique for part of this), dusting out her innards, and putting her to work again on masks. More. Masks. I've already made over 800 of them. Some of these will … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: July 20, 2020
Holy hats; it's March already! How's it going? Are you starting to see signs of spring where you are? We are, I suppose. My town received almost three feet of snow Thurs/Fri, but today it's 45F and raining. That would be great and all if we didn't currently have about 8 small trails of water … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: March 2, 2020
Half-mundane, half-magical, because that's how it goes
Well, that didn't go as planned, but what ever does?
Hi, y'all! What a whirlwind of a week it's been. We had our next-to-last choir rehearsal tonight for "Messiah." We're sounding pretty decent for the size of the choir! I can't wait to rehearse in the concert space; acoustics are always different. It'll be a treat to hear the orchestra, too! (And I'm only mildly … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: December 9, 2019
Shows and snows and holy cats, it's December!
Hiiii! How's it going? Can't complain here. Winter came early though -- 7-11" of snow expected by 9am tomorrow and I can believe it! My wind chimes are going crazy right now. (It was snowing enough that they canceled choir rehearsal tonight, and they don't do that for a few flurries around here. We're tough … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: November 11, 2019
Hi! How goes it? October continues to chug onward at max velocity, or so it seems to me. How is it already Monday again?? I think craft shows are partly responsible, because they eat up a lot of my weekend sometimes so the days all blur together. I love them though. Mia patro estas kun … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: October 21, 2019
Hi! How's the week starting off for you? Anything interesting going on? It's been a bit quiet here thus far, and I don't mind a bit. I have to file my first quarterly tax return by Friday, so am planning on doing that tomorrow. Fun! :-p I made entirely too much inventory for the craft … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: September 16, 2019
Alright, let's talk about that craft show. I was stunned by how poorly I did this weekend. I didn't expect to sell out or anything, but I didn't even make my booth fee back! Yes, they say you have to have/spend money to make money, but we're not the kind of folks with money to … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: August 26, 2019
