As another year comes to an end, I reflect on everything that has happened. The first part of the year I was still stuck in a rut. I felt like I had no energy and no direction. I knew I had to find some different work and take control again. I did just that, I have a job I love and work with some very wonderful people. I started running everyday and feel like a million bucks! I am so much happier with myself and life in general. With a new year there are always resolutions and things you want to achieve. Here are my plans:
1. Be more organized and declutter.
2. Take my art to a new level.
3. Have a very strong body and continue to run!
I don't think this list is too hard to keep. I have to stay focused!
Happy New Year everyone! I am glad you are all in my life!!

This is my new scarf I finished. I used two different yarns and decided to weave some leopard print fabric through it. I always like to try something different. I love to experiment with something a little out of the box. If it does not turn out...start over with something else. It never hurts to try something different!!

I did my part to support handmade this week. Look at the lovely handmade yarn I got off Etsy. I can't wait to make something with it! So vibrant colors and a bit of sparkle too! Stay tuned to see what comes off the knitting needles with this wonderful yarn.

The art show ended with a big smooch! I got a smooch from my BFF Linda. There was a lot of neat things and wonderful people at the show. I love seeing everyone again and looking at all the eye candy. The wearables were to dye for! Sales were a bit down for me this year, you never know what people will want. My wool hooked flowers went well sold them all but one. So now to get ready for the next show the fist of December. Ah!

We decided to have some fun and make a Halloween supper! I carved a pumpkin......the old fashion way, a knife, no stencils and my imagination. I made a dip that looked like a spider web, mummy hot dogs and Makayla make a cake. She added candy corn M&M's for the face. If was good and everyone enjoyed the fun food! Happy Halloween Eve!!

I opened my kiln this morning and it is just like Christmas. You never know exactly what you are going to get. I love how the black ones turned out. It is hard to see all the magic in the white ones, I used some clear designs in the middle and it it hard to see in the picture. I might do some more yet for the show. I am on a roll! Enjoy

Yes I finished another flower. This one is very fall looking, maybe a bit dark for me. I am going to start some more but I think I will go with some turquoise maybe? I need to do something a bit brighter! We will see what rolls off the hook........enjoy

Asking all my wonderful friends out there to say a prayer for my niece. Erin wants a baby so bad and has not been able to have one. She is willing to adopt, foster adopt to get a baby to love. We don't care what color or race she just wants a child to love. She would make a perfect mother because she is so caring and sweet. I wish I could have one for her...but I am too old now to have any more. My niece started a blog so stop by and say a little prayer that maybe she might just get pregnant or one will come her way to adopt. http://russanderinshope.blogspot.com I believe if we all say a prayer a miracle will come her way!

Here is one of my vintage ponchos made from table linens. I wore this last weekend and everyone was having a fit about it. I am so in love with vintage linens so why not wear them! I died the top one a golden yellow, I am so in love with gold yellow shades right now. I had fun wearing this and plan to make many more! Enjoy

We took off for camping for the weekend. It was very hot to start, but we had the perfect spot. Saturday ended up getting up to 100. By noon we were in the camper in the air cause it was getting pretty hot! Sunday was much cooler and very nice day. We went to our favorite spot the falls. We have been there a bunch of times and it still is such an amazing place. The falls are breath taking and very relaxing. I hope you enjoy.
