The one about tomatoes

One of my samplers that I slowly work on---usually when I watch tv with the family.

You know you're lucky when you receive a package from Angela Harris, like I did today. These are the button themed cards she sent to me, part of a swap on Club Creative. I really like how she incorporated all the button colors into the work. :) Its amazing how much detail she put into these cards---see them better HERE on her blog.




This summer has been deemed (by me!) The Summer Of Reading at our house. Been trying to get the kids into books more (i.e. the boys). Girls---no problem, but the boys are harder.


Momma Bird is back and her spruced-up nest from last year, under the deck. She spends her time sitting on the four tiny eggs she has in there. I wonder if she's the same momma from last year or if it's one of her kids? Kinda like the end of Charlotte's Web.
...AND we found more kittens yesterday! So sweet, they are.

Coke Zero has ruined me for Diet Pepsi. :(

I am dying to make more Pico de Gallo, but can't since there are no Romas to be bought until this tomato thing is over.

...and ...I have a lot of new items to be listing in my shop this friday! Been working hard at many new things! (and old favorites, too)

Marilyn I'm always wondering what your fabulous self is up to--so much more fun creative stuff than I right now, unfortunately...I am growing lots of tomatoes in my garden this year and some of them are officially dedicated to YOUR pico de gallo!!
I'm going up to art nest all of Friday--let's go together!~
