Downsizing - Packing up the Glass Studio.

Written by Karen
Color and Light - Karen's Studio
I have avoided this task for weeks, but I finally began to pack up my studio this weekend.  This is a big deal. Adam created this beautiful space for me in the back corner of our garage some eight years ago.  It has functional walls that define my own space, a glass door to the side yard, and color, storage and a venue for all of my glass artistry.

Bottom Line - South Korea

Written by Karen
Gets confused with barking and parking!
I spent a day tracking our travel expenses at home - a mere six weeks after we returned from South Korea!   When it comes to money already spent, what’s the rush?
Our average cost per day for two travelers visiting South Korea was $135.63 USD.  All expenses are shown in USD and use the exchange rate at the time of our trip, which was 1,000 won to .865 cents USD.  We visited South Korea for 11 days in mid-to-late October, 2011. We included all accommodation, travel and food/drink costs during our visit.
