I know I've said that before, but I really do. It's almost 6 a.m. and I'm the only one up. All the kitties, the pup and my husband are still sleeping and all I can hear is an occasional blue jay - seems they're always up and more than ready to talk - but I love them and their sassiness. They are use to me now and come up on the deck when I'm sitting out there, perch on the chair back and just watch what I'm doing, take a little bath in the bird bath and just generally hang out. My bears have not made their appearance this year - not here, not in my neighbors tree sleeping, or in my other neighbors yard playing in their pond - I worry about them and wonder where they are and what are they doing. If you are fairly new to my blog you can see them in my tree and on my roof playing last year here. And now that I see the date on that post - maybe I'm expecting them too early - well, I'll be waiting. They are so darn cute and sweet, and mommy lies under the tree in the backyard napping while the babes play - can't wait, they are one of the highlights of summer.
I'm posting today one of the items recently made for the shop I supply here in town. Basically I'm not a bright colors person, but I loved the juiciness of this Lime Ricky paper from Basic Grey and it just shouted out a summer banner. The CS is all bazzil, the rhinestones are from Doodlebug, and the chipboard alpha is Thickers. I just did not feel like messing with glue and glitter, so I used Stickles on the letters and really like the effect. Kari, the shop owner was thrilled, so I guess it looks o.k.
I really should take some time to improve my photo skills, maybe one of these days. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Try to take at least a little time out to create - it feeds the soul.
