it was quite a polish weekend. pisanki one day and kielbasa the next. besides smelling like smoked pork tubes for days, it was great! and just to make things more complicated, with 5, yes i said f-i-v-e meat grinders, each was missing at least one key part, and none of the other pieces could be combined to make a franken-grinder. luckily by chance we had gotten an electric at a estate sale and just decided to bring it along. that could have been a lot of meat with no where to go!

i am starting a new line on my etsy shop. here is a little glimpse of what i have coming! think baby mobiles, cubical pets...i am a little on hold with it right now because i stabbed my finger with a screwdriver which meant stitches, which makes it hard to make things. mrhhhh. PLEASE tell me what you think!
