My week in review.

My camera batteries were dead this week so I couldn't really download pics so now I am catching up on the past week! This is a great necklace I made that I decided to keep. I made the flowers with old millinery pieces, old fabric and beads. Love it.
Hung out with my friend Tina and met the fabulous Lynda Barry. She freakin rocks (well they both do) and if you ever get a chance to see her speak do not pass it up. Her take on creativity and how much we need it in our lives is so spot on I was super excited listening to her talk. Not to mention that she is hilarious. It was so fun.

It was one of the first nice weekends so I extended the garden a little. My veggie garden spot didn't really get enough light so now that shouldn't be a problem. In a couple of weeks I will get some tomatoes, peppers, and anything else that looks yummy. Cannot wait!!! I love playing in the dirt.

And last but definitely not least I had lots of fun again playing with my no bake clay. I also tried some polymer clay but decided for how I like to use it the no bake is the way to go for me. I like the Sargent Art brand called Sculpt-it. I tried others but that one is the best for me. I design them using stamps and other textures, let the dry overnight, antique them with an antiquing medium and then paint and diamond glaze them. I just adore every step of this process and ordered more clay so I can make more soon! Now if only I could clone myself so I had someone to list all of them for me on etsy!
Hope you all had a great week as well....leave a comment so I can read a little more about you too!

Love your new necklace! Your clay pieces are so fun. Do you ever!

Can't wait to see that vegetable garden! We're counting down the days till we can plant ours too! There's just something about fresh veggies in the summer. My mouth is watering just thinking about those tomatoes ;)

Kim, you have the most infectious personality. The "good" infectious type to get :)

So positive, young, energetic and full of life. Your daughter is one lucky girl to have such a strong role model to study as she grows.

You just can not help but like you, can't quite put my finger on it.

My dream, would be to have a beach house somewhere with an art studio facing the water and I can hear the shore birds flying over, children splashing and screaming and the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach or rocks below. Now that, is my dream. Hubby could have a little chair and tent rental stand and life would be good. That is all I would ever ask for again. And the house, keep it simple and beachy.

Have a great day dreaming your dreams!

Thanks to all of you! Linda that was such a kind comment you made it almost made me cry! I always try to stay positive because I have learned that being a grump only attracts other grumps to you!
