Up up and away

Perhaps I am ready to do some traveling, first boats and now hot air balloons?!

 Vintage ornaments, wire, handmade paper baskets and bunting.  I could make a hundred of these.
 Photographing them has proved to be a challenge, I haven't had enough time to work out the things I don't like about these pictures to get to the next stage....listing them (eek).

Have a great weekend everyone.

Taking a leap

At the beginning of the New Year I made a a few lofty goals/resolutions.  One was to take Kelly Rae Robert's online class Flying Lessons: Tips +Tricks To Help Your Creative Business Soar.  A few weeks ago I got an email saying this was the last time she would offer the ecourse, thought about it for half a second, and decided it was one resolution I really wanted complete.  It just started this past Sunday and I'm on board.  I have a creative business right? I have a blog, an Etsy shop, and a workspace to call my own...not a bad start but I lack goals and have so many fears about possible failure and success that I rarely get anything off the ground.

Today, driving home from the day job I noticed a hitchhiker on my wiperblade.  Kept thinking at each stop I made that he would take his leap, but he didn't.  Instead he stuck with me all the way.  Once home, I snapped a quick pic and left him him peace. 

I took a few minutes to read online about grasshopper symbolism and found this interesting bit of mythology:

green grasshoppers indicate fresh starts (new beginnings), as well as the concepts of youth, rejuvination, sentimentality, nature, adventure, growth and health.

Well then...

Summer is sailing away

I am constantly amazed by how fast time moving.  September already, kids in school, fall sports in full swing, and I'm finally posting pictures of creations made weeks ago.  

Have to say that these boats would still be unfinished if not for the fantastic advice of PatinaMarie...thank you Tina for sharing your ideas.

Step back in time

Had a free thirty minutes today before the kids got off the bus, spent that time browsing in the National Photo Archives.Want to step back in time to 1940's?

Mr. Mraz

Last week Bob and I went to a, really!!!   Pretty sure I haven't seen a concert in 10 years, though I'm also pretty sure there are others who can dispute that. Bob gently insisted we get tickets the day they went on sale (way back in April), spent some serious cash but we had good seats.  Be still my heart...I adore this man and his music...


Let me tell you cell phone cameras just don't cut it...oh well.
