Summer is slipping away. Between the trip to Florida, Barb's visit , the art expo, parties and just everyday living makes time fly.
I finally received my "DIVA CUSTOM CORD MAKER" from the the Fiber Goddess. I ordered it at the Bead and Button Show. It took forever to get.
Above is a sample of what I've been making:
It's kind of mindless, but fun.

I'm still beading. I'm trying to finish the bracelet for Shari's mom. It's been a slow process.

My little flower garden is doing well. I've been faithful to it and am out there watering every day. Hopefully my tomatoes and cukes will be ready soon. Nothing like freshly picked veggies!
I ended up buying stuff at the Art Expo last weekend. New pastels, paints, a Groovy Mouse (just what I need), paper for pastels. That's ENOUGH!
Have I used any of it yet ?, of course not! I still have bottles of paint etc.
that I haven't opened from last year.
It's really a pitty ! Lot's of money spent just for the sake of it. I need to slow down. According to the media, we're in big trouble! I hope they are wrong, and it's all hype. Anyway, I don't want to get into my tyraid about our government. I GET SO ANGRY! We are not stupid!!!!!!!!
