This week I got to combine work with a trip home. We have a tradition where we go to BK and don crowns and take a family photo. Piper is a master of faces. Wonder what this one means?Here we are in Sturgis MI. Mazie Sky, Great Ant Shae Shae and Piper Lake.
Lauren's new studio Limelight Photography in Sturgis MI. She is always coming up with creative ideas and her studio is way cool.
Mazie is about the cutest baby ever. She has porcelain skin so we call her butter.
I always bring a craft for Piper and I to do together. This tissue bird was easy and we loved the finished product.
Cathy and I collaborated on these cupcake fondant toppers. Cool and delicious.

The gang from work headed to Louisville for the afternoon. It was my first time back to Churchill Downs since the renovations. They got it right. What a great upgrade.
First race Caitlin, Cindy and I won on #4.
John felt at home while Ted and Danny checked the place out.
Willie and I take a break from cashing in all our winnings.
Between race banter.
My big tip and win for the day #2 was magnicificant.

Even in the heat of a Kentucky spring I can't leave the torch.
I wanted a navy and lime green necklace and this big necklace is my first attempt. The bright yellow centers may distract from the effect I was trying to achieve. It's a very busy necklace, maybe too busy.
Luna Double Helix on a lime green dot base shaped into a square bead sets up this set and the etched green and shiny smaller green bead creates an interesting set.
Mixing clear, mermaid teal, and adventurine gold makes this bead something special. Accented with two adventurine smaller beads the focal bead looks great.

I expanded this necklace for Cathy so that she could just slip it over her head. The idea being with no clasp she can select any color to be placed in the front. This allows for the necklace to be worn more often as the colors in the back don't really show. I used all kinds of glass but the final step etched the surface taking the shine off the beads. It produces an elegant result.
