Sad Day

Our neighbor dog has not been herself for almost a month, each day getting worse. Today the vet came by and took x-ray's and confirmed her thought that is was cancer. It has spread so much she is going to be put down tomorrow. I feel awful that I am flying out in the morning and wont be here, it's a wonderful thing that we have other great neighbors that will since her family is too far away.

I took a few photos to have a sketch done for her. Tai was such a sweetie and she will be missed, especially by her buddy Lucky.

It's still Raining, it's still Pouring....

Thought I would say good afternoon. This morning has been hectic as I am trying to get a few boxes out the door and add a few new items to my website. Here are are few pictures from our weekend. So far all you get is button bracelets because everything else has already been bought. Colin raking leaves in the front yard, he found a couple of surprises. Those surprises were TONS of mushrooms, we are guessing the bag had over 20lbs in it. Now I know why grass wouldn't grow in a huge chunk of the front yard.
A navy and silver button bracelet (this picture makes it look more bright blue, darn my photography skills) Tomato Red Plaid Button Bracelet

Both are available on my website.

See you next week as I fly out to see lots of people I love tomorrow.

Happy Fall

Fall finally decided to visit us this year. All the trees look beautiful showing off their red, yellow, and orange leaves.

It's pouring today making it impossible to rake up any of the leaves. :( So we are enjoying spiced tea and making ornaments.

Enjoy your weekend!

Back From Vegas

We had a great weekend seeing old friends, meeting new ones, and celebrating Joyce and Scott getting hitched. I thought I would share just a few pics. I cheated and snuck my camera into the chapel while we were getting Joyce into her dress. We weren't allowed to have cameras in there but I didn't want her to miss those moments, I am so glad I did. The Lovely Bride before the rehearsal. All of us that braved the heights and rode the rides at the Stratosphere. I hate heights but went anyway, after the first scare it was AWESOME. The view up there is phenomenal!
Allison, Joyce and Aunt Liz Mindy helping us enjoy the ride to the chapel. Getting Joyce into her dress, this is where I started breaking the rules with the camera thing....
Joyce in her dress. :) I had to hide my camera after this, no more wedding photos until Joyce gets them :( Allison, Myself, and Kat after the wedding somehow we lost the other 3 bridesmaids. Zach and Aaron our new friends that were two of Scott's groomsmen. The guys having us pose, we were at "happy hour".Colin REALLY enjoyed happy hour and his cigar. Yuck!

We had so much fun, I will share more photos once we get the legit ones. Congrats to Joyce and Scott! Love you Both!

P.S.-Those lovely earrings on all the bridesmaids were creations of mine, I will share a larger picture later since you can barely see them in my photos.

All Linked Up

I am learning all kinds of strange things with websites this week. I was finally able to link my new layout with the old website. As of right now is linked correctly but if you by chance forget to type the www you are out of luck at the moment. I am waiting on this getting resolved and was told it would be later today. Cross your fingers as I am going to be preoccupied with my BFF's wedding this weekend and wont be able to follow up.

Thanks to all for being so very patient. I REALLY appreciate it as I have been trying to get to this point for WAY to long.

Thanks Again!

Note: This has been resolved and both versions with or without www.

What did you do this weekend?

I went to Greenbluff Washington to the apple orchards Saturday. They also have pumpkin farms that were AMAZING, it made me wish we stole someones kid just to see the smile on their face when they found a pumpkin. I got a little over excited and bought a bunch of apples and my canner had to come out Sunday night. Our neighbor also brought me a huge bag of tomato's, potato's, carrots, and some butternut squash Friday. So last night we made Salsa and applesauce (super spicy salsa as Colin cut up an extra jalapeno and threw it in). Later this week after I get my "assigned" work done I am going to make some apple butter. Yum! Now other than the work I am wishing I bought some pears. :(

The rest of the weekend the three of us relaxed on the couch to stay warm as fall seems to not be visiting this year and winter is already here. :(

Over the Hump of Wednesday

I have been away for awhile as I have been occupied by too many projects. Nothing new there :) This week I have been getting a few orders out the door and cooking a lot as Colin has been able to come home at dinner time. That is a huge bonus as I am sure I am going to be eating alone the next few months with him working non stop. Anyways here are a few of the things I have been up to.
A sneak peak at a home warming gift I am working on for a friend that is closing on a house in 2 weeks. The tags are from mmmcrafts.

A couple of jars filled with my handmade teabags which I have a tutorial for here.

A pair of earrings I sent to my mom to match a gorgeous scarf my sister bought her in France.

A very bad picture of the back of my snazzy new phone which has a mirror when flipped up. I downgraded myself and shut off my blackberry as I have my laptop and rarely used it making the cost silly.

Here is my super cute gourd candy dish that I bought last year and didn't get to use as we were in the middle of moving. :( Any suggestions on candy to fill it up with this year?

I will continue to be scarce the rest of the month as we are attending a wedding in Vegas and I will be in KS and MO for the reception.....which I still haven't written my speech for.

P.S.-I'm also in the works on possibly working next month on the Broadway production Lion King that I have been hooked up through a friend. Cross your fingers that it works out because it would only be for a month and my interview wouldn't include the usual question of why we only live somewhere about a year. Hopefully my friends boss gets back into WA and this works out. I am praying because it sounds like an AWESOME opportunity.
