Little Chicken Mama

Our baby chickens think my cutie pie is there mama. I told him this and he said while blushing "hmmm I don't really mind they think that." Aww so sweet.

Now this guy we have to watch out for. He LOVES him some chicken I get the same look when I'm avoiding sweets.

Boys, Chickens, Camping, and tied tongues

Wow almost two weeks since I blogged. So what have I been doing?
1. Trying to keep up with my son and two step sons who are here for the summer. That's THREE boys ages 5, 8, and 8.
2. I hurt my back
3. I hurt my hand
4. lots of camping w/3 boys. It was oh so very exhausting.
5. Making LOTS of new items to go in to my SHOP. Available next week. (I hope)
6. And raising baby CHICKENS!!! So much fun! They are the cutest little things. I will share pics in next post.
7. Taking down my booth. I am calling it quits for now. It was fun but, I just don't have the time right now. (refer above to number 1.)
What I have NOT been doing.
1. Cleaning house
2. Weeding garden
3. Exercising
4. Losing weight
5. Taking long bubble baths
6. Cooking balanced meals
7. Reading
Who need that stuff any ways right?
I got tagged by the lovely Dalia at Stoke Chic Antiques.
Here are the rules:
1. Link back to the person that tagged you
2. Post rules on your blog

3. Share 6 unimportant things about yourself.

4. Tag 6 people at the end of your entry.

Here are 6 unimportant things about myself:

1. I lived on ranches untill I was 18 years old. As a child I always wanted to live in town. Now I cant WAIT to live in the country.

2. I love to swim and still pretend to be a mermaid sometimes.

3. I was named after a stupid song. Here are some of the lyrics:
"Brandy what a fine wife you would be" "But the sailor I am is married to the sea".
Basically its about a woman in love w/someone she cant have. I thought I was cursed in love because of that song, until I met my husband. lol
4. I'm a tomboy and still love to climb trees. My sons think its cool.

5. I LOVE scrabble even though my husband ALWAYS wins.
6. My tongue is literally tied. The thing at the bottom of my tongue grows all the way to the end. So I cant stick my tongue out or get it pierced. (yes at one point I thought not being able to get my tongue pierced was life's cruel fate) My son's tongue was also tied but was fixed after he was born. My dad's was also tied.
So now you know more about me than you wanted to. I tag these people:

Seeing Spots

I thought I would share a little insight into my personal life. I have never used my blog to gripe. But now this has an artsy story to it so here goes. I was soooo mad yesterday. My hubby and I are stuck dealing with a person that is the Biggest, most selfish, never puts their kids first, trouble making psycho path I have ever met. So as I was fuming yesterday I felt the strong urge to create. This was new to me. I usually can only create when I'm calm and focused. And I felt that I HAD to create with polka dots. I ended up making this pretty shadowbox collage in a frenzy of paper, paint, ink, and buttons. It all just came to me. Even the word JOY. I think it was Gods reminder that every situation is a blessing. Just look what came out of my anger. I guess instead of seeing "red" I saw spots. ha ha
So here's today's message: if you have a blended family and are having to deal with a psycho path just remember "this too shall pass"! And in the end you will be a lot stronger for it.

These Are Just A Few Of My Favorite Things

I found these great petticoats at the antique mall I have a booth at. I just LOVE the pink and black one. I decided to have a little photo shoot outside with some of my favorite things. The song "These Are Just A Few Of My Favorite Things" was playing in my head. I'm seriously considering opening a web boutique. I would love to hear some advice or tips on having an online boutique if anyone has some!
