Practice Run

my new favourite stamp "What I love today"
for a crocheted bracelet

I thought I better do a bit of a practice run today. I was having a bit of anxiety wondering how I was going to set up for an out door show, only having done it one other time about 10 years ago and not remembering much about it. It really did help. 

Nice Dirt bike in the background, eh!   :)
My Pink Stuff

Still have some tweeking to do (like putting on a bit of spray paint on the ugly gold shelve I bought at a flea market) but it seems to be all coming together.

Ugly gold shelf

I've officially stopped crafting today..... Cut myself off..... Done......Two more days to make lists and gather up all the necessary items........can't forget change. I keep having nightmares about that. Weird!

It's so nice having my mom (nana) here visiting again. She's one of  my biggest fans! She loves everything I make, even if she's not sure what it is, hehe!

Thanks mommsy!!!

Count Down

Cards for Art in the Park

It's official, count down starts today. Ten days till "Art in the Park" an outdoor arts and crafts sale that I will be in. I have been busy working for the last couple of months, in between grad stuff, gardening, and of course just life in general. So of course, I have not come anywhere near what I wanted to accomplish by now, but alas, there is ten days left.

I think my biggest problem is staying focused. I tend to be scattered all over the place, with a brain full and swarming with ideas. Oh my....I think I am the best re-grouper ever. I must do it 20 times a day.

Magnet is attached to the card

I love making these cards
Tomorrow I will finish up the necklaces and earrings I've working on, then on to some more sewing.

She's not so scary when she's on your ears..really

I have been neglecting my poor little purses and I must give them some attention. "Hold on little ones, I will see you on day 8."

Babies No More

Well the time has come for my last child to graduate from high school. Like so many parents have said before "Where does the time go" I now find myself echoing the phrase. 
Where does it go......... it goes way too fast that's what! 

My husband, Bob and I have been blessed with three wonderful children and I thank God for them everyday. 
Ali, 25, Megan, 22, and last but not least, my baby,  Liam, 18  is ready to set forth in the world.

 My wish for him is 

Happiness and Health and to 

laugh at least a dozen times everyday!
