We went shopping at the bead store again at lunch time. I bought a bunch of stuff. LOL I have ideas this time I swear! I shall be making a couple of necklaces. One will be called "Sweet as Honey" and the other will be called "Grow Where You Are Planted". That is all I can say about them. You shall see the end results sometime next week. So stay tuned. That is all for today. I am just trying to catch up on housework etc. TTFN (Ta Ta For Now)

Today I spent all day creating my package/trade for ArtNest. I decided I would create a charm that said ArtNest June 2007, and then make a little ephemera box. I call it an Ice Pack. In Creative Emergency. Isn't that soooooo cute! Of course it looks much cuter in person!
I hope everyone likes it. I am so excited about going. Only a few more days and then Jen and I hit the road! I only finished one 100%. The other 21, I have to finished tomorrow night. I only have to solder on the jump rings to the charms and attach to the boxes. I hate doing jump rings. I so SUCK at attaching those little suckers! But, the more I do, the better I get.

Tomorrow I will be creating! I am making my trades that I will be taking with me. I have an idea, but I will have to see if it works first. I will be taking pictures and posting of course!
TTFN-(Ta Ta For Now) as Tigger would say. I am off to cleaning and organizing...my first chore? To cut out the rubber stamps I put on foam the other day and never finished and put them away in their books!

So dear sister, I think that you shall be done putting your house together before me! I am moving slow, maybe because I just got tired. Tired of unpacking boxes for the umpteenth time. 3 moves, 1st moving to Kentucky, then moving back to Las Vegas, and then moving into this house 6 months after we got here, in a year and a half about killed me. I really do need to finish unpacking. But, I would rather spend my time creating...that is why my spare room is FULL of boxes! What hidden treasures await to be unpacked? I have no idea what is in the boxes anymore!

1. One of my favorite movies is Caveman with Ringo Starr! LOL..I know I know, I just can't help it!
2. I won a writing contest in 2nd grade and got to go to Cape Canaveral to see a rocket blast off in the early 70's
3. I failed my driving test because I hit a bumper that was sticking way out on a truck and scrapped my car. LOL...That was along time ago and I don't EVER parallel park anywhere because I suck at it!
4. I love all things Halloween.
5. I could live on Steamed Clams and melted butter.
6. I used to collect teddy bears and I have over 200 of them packed away in boxes in the closet.
7. I lived in my car for about a week when my son was a baby until I broke down and went back to my husband at the time because I just couldn't make it on my own. Sad I know, but I would not trade my past for it is what has made me who I am now.
I tag the following artists:
Paula Scinto An English Girl in the USA
Belinda - Altered belly
Elizabeth of Enchanted Art
Rella - Faerieluna

I also bought some old journals to use in my art. I also bought a book to alter for my journal on my trip to Turkey. It has a pretty cool cover so I won't do too much altering to that, but I am excited about starting on it. I also bought some old sheet music.
Other than that, my weekend was very unproductive. I should have been cleaning my art space. It is totally a mess. I have been trying to organize it for the past couple of weeks. Ever since I came back from Art & Soul it's been a mess. I guess I have done a few things. I had a whole bunch of rubber stamps that needed to be cut down and put on the foam, so I did that. My hand hurt after cutting them down, so now they are sitting on the foam sheets waiting to be cut out on those!

Then there are the bright spots in my day. It was a BEAUTIFUL day. See the temperature gage in my car? Only 84 degrees! There was a cold front that came thru and cooled the valley down. This is why I love Las Vegas. Days like these.
As I drive home every day, I get to see this big flag at the new Chevron station, waving in the wind. I love this flag. Especially when it was brand new. The colors were so bright and crisp against faded mountains and blue sky that surround the valley. The flag has been broken in by the winds of the last few days and now has frayed edges, but it is still a beautiful reminder of what a great country we live in. My heart fills with pride when I see it waving in the breeze. It also reminds me to pray for those that are fighting in the war, doing their selfless duty, while we enjoy our freedom here. That is when I start to feel grateful for the little things. Reading Nina Bagley's blog today made me pay attention to the things I normally don't notice. I do have some green in my life. Like my little patch of grass outside my front door.

when or how it started, but the tradition
of ‘Topping Out’ has become a
cherished custom of Iron workers
whenever the skeleton of a bridge or
building is completed. Topping Out is
a signal that the uppermost steel
member is going into place, that the
structure has reached its height. As
that final beam is hoisted, an evergreen
tree or a flag or both are
attached to it as it ascends."
