beach friday

This is my favorite time of year to visit the beach. It's cooler, less crowded and the parking meters are gone.

 I love the colors and texture of these leaves.
Going to play around with that one on Photoshop.

 I love the muted shades in this shot.

 I must be hungry because this makes me think of icing on a cookie.

See the lone Sandpiper?
I love watching them.
There was a group of four.
After the wave comes up they run and chase it back to the ocean scooping up whatever it is they eat. Then when the next wave comes up they run from it like they don't want to get their feet wet. If the wave touches their feet they fly away.
Fun stuff.

Have a "fun stuff" weekend!

OK I have been here a year now and still need to get stuff unpacked.

It's time!
It's cooler now so I am able to get into the garage.
I had it organized back in the fall of last year. I had 5 or 6 bins with the stuff I needed to go in the studio. There are about 30 or more  bins out in the garage.
I placed the 6 I needed by the door and would bring them in...until DH decides to rearrange the garage and he put them "somewhere" and he doesn't know where.
I have seached all the wrong bins.
I want my favorite rubber stamps!!

I hope you can find everything you are looking for today!

random friday.....

Does cake cure all?
 It helps!
Had a huge let down today....
...after waiting a year and a half to finally sell our house in OK...
Had everything ready to go.
House cleaned....
....yard done...
utilities switched...Everything!
Settlement day and no settlement.
Someone at the bank forgot to put someones loan thru.

Hopefully they will be ready to go in a week or two....sigh!

Keeping our chins up!

Have a great weekend!

 I am sooo ready to get back in the studio and get creative.

Whilst in Oklahoma I stocked up on a ton of new fabrics, some very amazing new stamps and a few new "Tim" things.

Can't wait to get crack-a-lackin' with my new toys!

bear love

If a natural disaster comes your way...beside thinking of your safety, what one thing would you grab?
I grabbed this little guy when hurricane Irene blew into town. I have had him for 54 years. He is my first Steiff bear.
His mohair body is worn from love.
But his cute little expression is far better than the newer bears of today.
His name is Dee.
And I have his parents too along with cousins, ect.

(yes, people think I'm weird....I don't care!)

Do it!

last but not least....watermelon!
I crave it all winter.

hearting art

 I forgot I made these art hearts a while back.
I found them whilst browsing thru the old computer.
I wonder where they are?
Still not unpacked at the new house.

I had plans for these....guess I'll have to make some more.

I had a great lunch today with my OK buds.

Hope you had an heARTful day!

Labor Day greetings

Happy Labor Day!
As summer is winding down I am still enjoying the beauty of the morning glories and clematis.

 I think the purples are my favs.

I hope you have the day off today so you can be creative and make some art!
