School. Is. Out.

Oh the memories...a life changing experience. 

Birthday gift for Andrew

He doesn't wear jewelry so I suppose this is the next best thing I could make for a 12 year old future MLB player.

I'm a metalsmith

Hand-sawed, reticulated, hammered and made of copper, silver, and brass.

Beautiful Chicago

Outside my bedroom window.

The countdown chain

Nicole made a chain that helps me countdown the days until my National Cert exam. So nervous!

So apparently this is the worst storm Chicago has had since 1967. 

Roommates tags. 

So painful watching her shovel. 

You shovel and I'll take a picture of you shoveling. 

Greenview to my right. 

Greenview to my left. 

Someone's on top of the shoveling race. 

Wading through the alley. 


Phase one: The mound. 

Phase two: pat and carve...pat and carve...

Bringing snowman cheer to you. 

Vladimir the Russian Snowman is complete!

Work it, Vlady, work it. 

Up close and personal. 

We replaced his red scarf with a donated scarf, courtesy of a nearby spectator. Bud Light and carrot also donations. Old underwear for a mouth.  

Vlady is famous! Passerby's taking pics. A Bears hat has also mysteriously appeared on his head. A nice Bears hat. 

Hugging him goodnight. 

Our cars in the back.

Just because...

Me, the birthday girl, and a very large balloon.

Week before the "big day".

I'm such a dork.
