Thanks again Tonya, for her gorgeous banner and coming up with this name. Isn't she talented?
I hope you come visit me at my new blog, often. I am hoping to enjoy all your company for years to come! I love you all!
I like this pattern, from Back Porch Pickins, so much that I think I am going to make a witch out of her! She is the perfect size. I am still waiting on all sorts of patterns that I ordered, so I am soo looking forward to that. I even order more fabric...UHOH. I found some cool rustic fabric that I just had to have, cuz I ordered a really prim raggedy pattern I want to make! Fun!
I will have to share when I get all my goods! I got to get back to work on my two other halloween items I am working on, so have a glorious day (it is almost 80 degrees here in Denver!) HOT!
Here are the pictures of some trees in my neighborhood. I love this time of year. I wish the trees would stay like this longer. I planted 3 crabapple trees in my parkway, but they will bloom a little later in the season.
I hope everyone is having a great Monday!
Here's what I woke up to....This is a picture from my window in my office. The little victorian, in the middle (behind the big tree) was a renovation I did back in 2003. That was one of my best projects. It is really adorable. I painted the exterior myself (except I hired someone to do my ladder work) That porch turned out really cute!
I was adamant about the look I wanted. I really wanted it to be "gingerbready" (if that's a word). Well, I took the time and painted it myself and it paid off. I had 3 contracts within 24 hours and ended up making 10k more than market value! HAHA.
It is nice living across the street from it as well. The only thing I would have done differently was put a sprinkler in. I have noticed people do not like taking care of their yards. Living in a somewhat deserty climate it really helps....Sorry Ryan. :)
Shadow was up playing with a ball of paper this morning. She loves to play hocky with it. She definatley is not photogenic. I can never get a good picture of her. She always looks away. I guess I don't blame her for not liking a flash in her eyes..heehee.
I signed up for some classes at the Colorado Free University (no, it is not free.) It is a group that offers all kinds of classes from knitting, dancing, and cooking, to computer programs. My first class is Adobe Illustrator. I have taught myself how to use it, but I am hoping to gain more knowledge to help with drawing with it. I also signed up for Crochetting. I tried to learn once from a friend and well, it did not stick. Unfortunately, they did not offer an advanced knitting course...bumber. I am also excited about a class called "writing and publishing a children's book". Not having kids of my own has hindered my writing ability on that end. What does a 3 year old read? I keep thinking about "The Cat in the Hat". A bit of simple poetry and big colorful pictures, right?
