A Grand Piano in wire ... it's a musical week!

It's been really crazy this past while! We had a blizzard last night, another five inches of snow at least! My kids looked outside and groaned, all except for my nine yo daughter, who promptly went out and built a snowman! She's crazy about winter, never wants it to end! Hubby left for work this morning, got about five miles from our house and got stuck! Took two hours to dig himself out and limp home. The snow plows came by at about 11:00 so he left for work them. I'm just grateful I don't have to drive anywhere today! I intend to hole up with some homemade hot chocolate and bend wire to my heart's content!

I've done a couple of custom orders this week. This is a wire piano I did for a personal art piece for a customer. I think it turned out quite well. I'm also working on a set of 80 music ornaments in black for a wedding. The wedding theme is "Sing a new song unto the Lord", and the intention is to tie them with ribbon as napkin holders -- which sounds like a very pretty idea to me!

We've been sick!!!

Oh my goodness, we've had the mother of all head colds around here! Seems like not much, just a head cold, but the blinding headache, total congestion that morphs into sinus infection, fever ... this has been no fun at all! All of us had it, hubby and I worst of all, and I actually had to break down and get some antibiotics for my sinus infection. Yuck! I hate having to do that. All life outside of my little world has ceased to exist, but I'm finally starting to see daylight!

Happy Easter everyone! We had family over on Good Friday to color eggs and had a very nice time ... well, the kids and I did, but hubby was pretty out of it. He tried to be present, but he just sat there shivering and staring and finally just went back to bed. Then my baby had a very high fever and spent pretty much all of Saturday and Easter Sunday sleeping on me. Seems like the worst is over for him, tho', thankfully. He's still a little crabby but the fever has broken.

So there's my big excuse for checking out of life for the last few weeks. Let's hope it gets better this week!
