Transitions. That is where I am right now. I am transitioning between a mom and an empty nester. Andrew will be going to school in Ohio this year and will be living with his aunt during the week. I rarely see him now because he is 16 and has a car and a job. The house has been so quiet. It will be even quieter this fall. Christopher is already gone. I also am transitioning MY life. I am going to school. That is a huge transition! I feel like I am on the edge of MY life! I am finishing up being a full time mom and beginning with my life. Where will it go from here? I'm not sure. Maybe marriage will be in the future, maybe not. Promotion on the job? Maybe when I graduate (4-5 years from now!)

So, I was thinking about transitions. I wanted to define what a transition was. There are so many ways to transition. There are definite, clean lined transitions, but those are so rare! Most of the transitions that I found in nature, just gradually fade into each other. That is where I am. I guess I will know when I finally get there.

HOLA! Que Tal? I just started spanish class yesterday. It has been 20 years since I took Spanish in high school! So far, it isn't going to badly. I have to be in class at 7:30 am, TODAS LAS MANANAS! This goes on for 9 weeks this summer. By taking class this way, I am saving myself a year of school, so I guess it is worth it, but I am MUY CANSADA!

After this I can go to Cancun and order my marguaritas in Spanish! YEAH!

New Stained Glass Piece

Ok... so I am really proud of this one! I made this Wedding Invitation last night. I honestly think it is the best one that I ever made!

The glass came out really square and my framing was perfect.

This is a wedding present for my mom's neighbor. She is getting married this weekend in Nashville, TN. I hope that she likes it!

I am offering to make custom wedding invitations like this one. You can pick out your glass color and wheter or not you want dried flowers added. Just send me a message if you are interested. They are $75.

I just opened a NEW ETSY Shop! It is called PinkrosesSupplyShop. Visit it at

I am using this new shop in order to keep my glass separate from everything else that I make and list. I have lots of paper crafts such as tags and paper dolls and envelopes listed in the new shop. I also plan on putting lots of destash in the new shop. Come and check it out! Nothing is expensive!

Christopher is Home!

Christopher came home from college last night! It is so cool having him home even thought it is for less than 24 hours. He has an apartment in Chicago, so he is staying there this summer and hopefully he will find a job soon. He came home last night so that he can go to a concert in Cincinnati with some friends. Sadly, I will only see him a few hours tonight after work and that will probably be it for the summer. He wants to do some free laundry and get some free food while here at home :) That is teenagers for you!

Other news: I am offically finished with Freshman Biology! I took my final on Monday. I recieved an "A" in bio lab!!!!!!!!! I am still waiting on my lecture grade. I start Spanish in less than 2 weeks. :( I'm not looking forward to that at all!

My First Blog!

Ok, so I really don't know what I am doing here, but this seems to be the thing to do, so I will give it a try. Let me introduce myself. My name is Judy. I am a mom of 2 teenaged boys. Christopher is in college in Chicago and isn't coming home for the summer. Andrew is now a Junior in high school. He has his license and a car, so I never see him either. I think I am dealing with empty nest syndrome already.

I work full time as a cell biologist. I specialize in hair biology. I also am working on getting my BS in biology at the University of Cincinnati. I always do things backwards.... I got the job first, now the degree. In my spare time, I love to craft! I have a shop on ETSY
I love to play with glass, both stained and fused. I also sew and do paper crafts. My money maker is my cornhole bag shop on Ebay.

So, check back often. maybe I will actually keep this thing up! LOL!
