New items in shop

I will be adding lots of new supplies to my ETSY shop. I'm also working on some projects I have been thinking about for a long time. For example, I want to make a Cabinet of Curiosity shadow box. And I haven't forgotten my promise of a blog give away! This one is going to be personalized! I'm sorry I haven't been making my blog rounds lately. My etsy shop is keeping me soooo busy! Which is a very good thing but I do miss everyone!

Booth Redo

Shame on me for taking so long to post! I have been redoing my booth. I also was given an old drafting table for my studio! Thank you so much Roxanne! So I decided to redo my studio yet again. (I have no idea what possesses me sometimes.) I got rid of the over sized Office depo desk and added a little charming one. So as soon as I tame the HUGE mess I have made, I will post pictures. I will be having a give-away soon so stay tuned! Oh and to answer a few questions about the pictures I have posted in the past. Most of the nature ones come from state parks. We are very lucky here in Texas to have wonderful parks. I do not live in the country but in the middle of freaking town. We really hope to move to the country in a few years however.

A Me Day

This weekend my hubby took the boys hunting and left me all by myself. So Saturday I did all my favorite things. I spent hours at the library (I'm such a dorky book worm), went junking, and then spent the day at the local state park. I was really looking forward to a day at the park. This weekend was gorgeous! It was about 74 degrees and sunny. But, the park was cram packed full of city slickers. I learned the down side of having such a cute dog. People especially high pitched squealy girls kept managing to find me and scream "can I pet your doggie?" My
dog scrappy doo does not like girls. I think it has something to do with the high pitch squeal. So I would have to gently tell them no then retreat further into the wilderness hoping for a small amount of quite and privacy. I saw no wildlife at all. Possibly also do to all the people and high pitch squealy girls. I'm just kidding. I would trade one, or two, maybe even all three of our boys for a girl. ;) Of course Scrappy-doo would not be happy about that!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! This is the most amazing poem I found on this cool blog.


by American poet Edwin Gordon Lawrence.

There's a soul in the breeze as it goes softly by,
A soul in the tree as it sends forth a sigh,
A soul in the bird as it carols its song,
And a soul throughout Nature the whole day long.
Then list to this soul as it beats out its tune,
The tune which is heard in December and June,
In all the wide places of land and of sea,
Of river and mountain, of sky and of lea.
To those who in sympathy, joy, love and truth
Attune themselves gladly with fervor of youth
With the great soul of Nature pulsating life,
Reverb'rating strength through the channels of strife,
Will be given a pleasure of infinite joy,
A thrill of delight which no pain can destroy.
So go close to Nature in quest of her heart,
Receive at her hands joys that ne'er will depart.
