Stained Glass

I have wanted to learn how to make a stained glass window since I was a child. I'm not sure why I've never done it before. 

The process of making this piece of art will take more than one day and I had no idea that each step is so time consuming.

On day...

People power

This morning I marched in the rally for women. We started at the courthouse in Milwaukee with an inspirational crowd and some empowering speakers. I’ve never marched for or against anything. I’ve never felt so unrepresented as a woman. 

It’s impossible...

Let there be light

Well, let there be lamplight.

Today I made a candle. It was not a typical candle. Today I took an orange and made it into an adorable flickering light.

Here's the deal. I've been away from my refrigerator a LOT in the last 30 days. Being present with so...

White teeth

Today you are going to hear about my teeth. If that grosses you out you might not want to read on. Why is my 121st day about teeth?

I've always had issues with my pearly whites. In recent years the fact that they weren't white was a big problem for me. I hate...

Service

For months I’ve been reading about a film titled "Served like a girl." I’m pretty passionate about bringing awareness to depression and suicide which can not be addressed without changing the state of our mental health care system.

Soap

On my 119th day I decided it was time to make my own scented soap. I've probably washed my hands a thousand times while visiting my mother the last few weeks and the soap there smells horrible and has made my hands beyond dry. 

I buy most of my soap at farmer's...

Snow

I live in the midwest and my least favorite days of the year are when the snowflakes are flying. I hate to drive in it. Shoveling also scores a zero on the fun meter. 

When the kids were little we spent a lot of time playing in the snow. Truth is we were mostly shov...

Show me

I had an interesting experience today. The morning started out calm and the afternoon ended in a sports bar. Neither of these are new for me. My first time adventure happened sometime in between.

For my 117 experience I attended my very first gun show.

Chess on ice

That’s how the introductory video describes this game. Rocks and sweeping and booties all while you target the rings and stones of you opponent.

I didn't actually play chess on ice. I attempted to learn the sport of Curling.

I've watched this Winter Olympic e...

Ring the bell

I have not given up. Ringing the bell was my experience for the day but first I had to make it. 

It's been a few weeks since I've been out to the forge and it's been months since I decided that I wanted to make this old school dinner bell. 

The design wasn't...
