Almost there now

Our 180 days of school for the 2010-2011 school year are finished! I'm still getting the boy's portfolios in order but the end is in sight. Studio time has mostly been limited to fulfilling a large custom order but I also spent a little time rummaging through the " discard box" and re-working pieces that didn't work out. Carving works wonders on Stone upon Stone pieces that were made before I got more consistent with them. (I throw nothing away.)

I had a pleasant surprise from Amanda at Ulixis who featured my white Fragment earrings on her blog yesterday! Check out all her lovely finds!

Turtle update

Some time between 11pm and 7am our snapping turtle left us. God speed turtle!
To answer one of the questions in the comments, no, turtles don't sit on their eggs they drop 'em and leave. But we will work to keep the eggs safe for the next 6-7 weeks. Once they hatch we were told we can move the babies to the stream. (Sam is having a little trouble being convinced that a snapping turtle wouldn't make a good pet.)

Our dog gets it that she isn't allowed to dig where the eggs are but we have some concerns about the neighborhood cats. We're thinking we should construct a wire dome of some sort.
