sept 7-27th 2006
September 7th , 2006 alone at
came up to visit on Sunday and left this morning. I do like their visits but
for me, it doesn't matter who, I get tired of people. I like people but it is
hard to be nice and make conversation for the whole day. I am a hermit but
choice. So I was glad when they left because Quinton and I played all day and
went for a walk and I mooned over my kiln that is still broken. Waiting for
parts for the kiln is HELL.
So I am hoping to be able to do some jewelry with the beads I have before I
start pulling my hair out. Though Roy
does want me to insulate the shed, which I may do tomorrow when Quinton goes
for his first power snooze.
I will update you on the kiln.
September 10th, 2006 1st birthday
It is Quintons first birthday and he acted like it was his day (but isn't every
day). He didn't get alot of presents, thank God, but I know that will change
come xmas and I am fine with that.
I am personally going stir crazy with not making beads. These past 2 days while
Quinton has been sleeping I have been sewing bags for my jewelry that I sell.
Yeah I know I'm crazy but I like that little extra effort.
Roy is on his
4th day of 20 something days of work in a row. We are not to sure how it is
going to go yet but so far so good.
Our internet has been really slow lately.
The past 2 days it has been taking at least 10 minutes to get emails and 1 day
I could not send anything out. And forget about the site loading up.
Shaw is telling us that it is our computers so they are sending another Tech
tomorrow to check it out.
3 weeks ago one tech came out and could not find anything wrong with the wiring
in our house or our computers but thought it was the outside line.
We personally wonder if it has something to do with the digital phone system
they are now selling. We don't have it but who many people in our area have it
They tell us it goes through a different line but we have a friend who has it
and she uses her modem that she also uses for her computer.
So no new pictures yet of his royal highness but I will start working on it in
the next couple of days.
Monday september 18th, parts
I called Orton today to order a part for my digital controller that came friday
but does not work. They are sending me the new part UPS so I hope that is real
Did I tell you how helpful they have been. I spoke with Mike from Jenken and he
helped with the old kiln and now who to contact for these parts. Mike and
Jim(from Orton) both said that once the parts gets in to call them and they
will walk me through putting the new electronics in. So I really can't
complain. But the waiting is the worst.
Okay you would not believe the dumbass I am. I just deleted all my mail you
guys have been sending me. So please email me again and if you have been voting
at my site send me email to let me know you have been voting and I will make it
all better by the end of the month. No more late night email checks.
Sorry you guys. I know dumbass.
Okay I think I am scrap-booked out for a while. I did Quintons life up to
September. I only did birthday photos for sept in the book. That is alot of
pictures to go through. And I only worked on it between 8pm and midnight
everyday for the last 5 days.
Kiln does not work. I have a digital controller on this kiln and I programed it
and an error keeps coming up. I emailed JenKen and they told me that I will
have to call and get a part for the controller because the chip is screwed. So
tomorrow I will be calling. I have to say Jenken has been very helpful with all
But my kiln does not work. ( pouty lip) Maybe tomorrow I will get the
controller for my old brokendown kiln and that will work and take the edge off
me being cranky.
I girl could have hope.
Tomorrow I will work on the site. Because again I am done with scrapbooking for
the kiln came in and it is a digital so I am working on programing it and any
other kinks before I torch. I am hoping Sunday. So that tomorrow will be my
last day of scrap booking for awhile.
I did 7 out of 12 months of Quinton pictures done.
Tuesday sept 19th, warning
I am posting this warning again for all you new bead buyers, and bead makers.
If you go onto Corrina tettinger do not buy anything from her right now. There
are alot of customers, including myself that have not gotten the items we
bought from her or a refund on the undelivered items. Yes she makes beautiful
beads and does beautiful work but right now the products she is selling on her
site are not being shipped. there are even recent cases of people buying things
from her and not getting a reply from her what so ever. Her website has not
been updated in over a month either so do not be fulled by the date on her main
This is a warning if you want anything from her site. I have ordered from her
in May and still have not gotten anything and will never but I don't want any
of you to feel the disappointment I feel.
If you want one of her books there are other companies that have the books for
sale and if you go to catwalk you can get most of the presses she has.
cooties and pictures
sept 23rd, pictures
Okay after 4 or 5 days of rain we have had 2 days of sunshine so I took sicky
boy to the park and we took pictures. Some of him playing in the leaves and
some of the two of us.
No kiln parts yet. I don't want to make jewelry because my kiln is broken (does
that not make sense to you). I just feel like everything in my jewelry is
broken because of that. I know "CRAZY."
Roy came home
at 3am because he was sick. The flu is going around the plant and because he
was not feeling well, he decided to share it with us.
So now I am sick and being a mommy does not really allow me to be sick. I can't
spend 13hours in bed like him because who would take care of Quinton (yeah I'm
Sept 25th, 2006 new parts
Yeah the new chip for the digital controller came in today. Roy set it up and I have done a second test
on it already and it looks to be working with no fe5 coming up.
So I finished what I could in the shed ( I was insulating it by myself). And
tomorrow night I am going to torch after Quinton goes to bed. So I may have to
do something drastic to get him to go to bed at an earlier time and not his 8pm
time that he has been doing this past week.
Since Quinton has been sick he has been fighting to go to sleep be it for naps
or at night. The only way he has been falling asleep is if there is movement,
like being in the stroller or if I am doing squats, yup squats not bouncing or
rocking=squats. Kids can be just as weird as adults.
I actually ordered him a halloween costume too since I did not think I would
have time to make one for him. It should be here early next week and I hope it
fits. I actually hope it is a little big. Roy
has halloween off so he may take Quinton trick or treating with a friends
Did I tell you I got the chip for my kiln and it looks to be working? Did I
tell you that I have been going stir crazy because Roy is on his 19 of 23 or 24 days of work. So
getting this kiln to work means I will get a couple of hours of me time.
Sept 27th, halloween
Recieved Quintons costume today. I am not going to tell you what it is yet
because I am thinking it might make for a good giveaway.
Torched today, just doing beads that I have on order. So nothing really to show
