I'm obviously the world's worst blogger. In attempts to reach as many people as possible, I often only remember to blog when I have a show coming up. I'm sorry about that. I DO have a show next weekend (info below) and I've got a TON of new stuff and the "bargain bowl" is overflowing!! I know how everyone loves to dig through that so be sure to come out!
Hope to see you there!!!

Happy August

It's half over already! I swear we've spent half of the summer inside because it's been too hot to even go to the BEACH! I know a lot of people are feeling the effects of drought throughout the country. It's so dry here in Iowa that part of house started to pull away! We had to water the house foundation for crying out loud! You might expect that in Texas but not here in Iowa! At least we were able to figure out the problem.

School starts next week and with one kid going off to middle school, I cna't say that I'm quite ready. I guess I'll have to GET ready--real quick. At least the first week is a short week. I guess it WILL be nice to get back to work. Trying to work in the middle of the night is playing havock. I used to be able to do it, not so much any more. :-)

What else? Pinterest? Everybody I know is spending WAY too much time on that site. Some fun stuff going on over there though. I'm guilty too. You can check out my boards if you want! I don't know why Blogger is not letting me add the hyper link, but you can get to it from the link on the left<<< or go here: . Seeing my page it's pretty obvious that I love colorful stuff. :-)

Speaking of colorful, we went last week to Reiman Gardens in Ames, Iowa where they were having their Lego exhibit. Very cool.

That's about it for now. :-)

Happy July

Times flies! I read somewhere that people forget about you if you don't blog often. Ugh well... it isn't that I don't love you or want to talk to you, it's just that not much exciting seems to happen in my little world! :-) The heat has been keeping me from making beads which really stinks! I HATE NOT MAKING BEADS!! I don't know how I ever survived BEFORE I started!

I was able to find some beads from my show stash that I listed today though.

I was trying to learn on the fly how to put all those pictures together in one photo in Photoshop but couldn't figure it on my own. I'll try again later. :-) Maybe I'll pick up a Photoshop for Dummies book.

Hope you're all staying cool.
