A Dream Come True

A dream come true!!

My friend Odile aka WoollyFabulous, turned one of her wacky dreams into reality by gluing tons of little red and white spotted mushrooms to her daughter's leg. What a crazy dream! What a creative woman! What a patient daughter! I'm loving it.

What I'm working on

I was able to sit down and sew a bit last night, not something that's been happening much lately, and made up a little stacked heart brooch. I finished it up this morning while the kids ate breakfast and even listed it in my Etsy shop. Woo hoo! I'm on a roll! Hey, when you hardly get the chance to shower, finding time to craft is a big deal. :D
Have a great and crafty day.

I'm back!

After taking a few weeks off to finish up some projects, hang with the kiddies, and play a little at home, I'm back in the swing and feeling a little refreshed.

On my break I finished a couple of projects that I had been asked to do for an upcoming crafty book. It's due out this winter and I'll share the details later. Here's a sneak peek at one of the projects I've contributed.

I made jam. Lots of jam. 25 jars of jam. Mmmm. Strawberry, rhubarb, strawberry-rhubarb, balsamic strawberry, and apricot cardamom (which I'm using on tonight's porkchops).

The kids and I walked the beach a little. Which of course means going in the water, no matter how cold it might be.

My 3 year old found an enormous Lake Superior agate in the yard and recognizing it as one of momma's favorite pretty rocks, washed it in a mudpuddle and presented it to me. It weighs almost 12 ounces, he should be very proud.

I treated myself by making 4 terrariums, all for me! I don't know about you other crafty types, but I never make things for myself. My creative energy is spent making things for other people, so this was quite a treat for me, indeed.

Have a great day, everybody.
