Shake It Up with Shikshook!

Shake It Up with Shikshook!

Well, so far, the only shaking up I’ve done is with water, ice, and lemons at the request of my four year old daughter, but right away I love the way the shaker frosts on the outside. It makes me feel like a real bartender! The accessories and velvet bag make the set classy and sleek. Soon, I hope to take advantage of some recipes for a few delicious and refreshing adult beverages, perhaps in time for my 50th birthday!

So, I best get practicing then, shouldn’t I? There is absolutely no harm in putting the work in now because it means that when the party comes, I will be a master of mixing drinks of any kind. In fact, my friends have given me lots of recipes to use, both non-alcoholic and alcoholic, so there should be something that tingles the tastebuds of everyone. They’re experts, you see, and have been for a long time because they were some of the people who would make the most of the fake id card that allowed them to try all of these beverages before they were even legally old enough. They have lots of memories, and I’m actually grateful for all of the advice that they’re giving me now, as it means I can use my cocktail shaker for a number of different reasons. I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks of my concoctions… I’ll have to let you know!

Thank you to Tomoson and Shikshook for my free Cocktail Shaker Set in exchange for this review.

Mermaids and Canines

Mermaids and canines come together for my latest Oh BaBee! Originals creation. My customer is thrilled to give it to her friend who is due in June with Gemma Paige. The dogs are their babies for just a little while longer until the human baby takes the spotlight.

It always brings me great joy to create a piece for a well-deserving mom. I am honored to adorn the new baby’s room with my work and contribute in a small part to their happiness.

This piece was made with a variety of materials: glass beads, paper flowers, tulle, felt, ribbon, wooden shapes and letters, cloth doilies, and other fabrics. Much of it is up-cycled from old clothing.

Sleep well, baby Gemma, and enjoy the ocean breezes with your mermaid friend.

Goodbye to Loki

This beautiful Great Dane, Loki, died in his sleep the night before last. He was a gift to my nephew for his college graduation and such a special part of his and his fiancée’s life. He wasn’t even five yet, but had kidney problems. They thought they had time with him. My love and prayers go out to Ryan and Erica today and as long as they need to grieve for their precious pet.loki loki loki
