  • I have always been one to clean up after every project so that I can start afresh.  That trend has been changing lately as I push bead aside that I might want to use later.  I have also started working on a themes where I grab everything I might use and toss it on the table.  In the pic above I was working on the Splendid Procession challenge.  The reveal for this isn't until June but I like to work ahead.

  • Almost overnight the rose bush that I have been trying to kill came into bloom.  It has beautiful red, country roses but they have no fragrance.  Now I love roses but I want to be able to sit on my porch and enjoy the scent also.

  • Just wanted to share a couple designs I made up for one of the Pine Ridge Treasures Challenges.  I normally try to write up a post to share them but this challenge occurred on the same day as the Art of Awareness so I had just shared these on the Facebook Group.  The themes was Twilight.
  • Yep picture heavy this time.
  • Speaking of pictures, I have an account on Instagram that I am going to 'try' to start sharing pictures through.  I say try because reaching to take a pic isn't a reflex for me.  I spent years avoiding cameras to I am trying to retrain myself.  Anyways, if you would like to follow me I am Shais3D.
  • I have seven hours left of A Storm of Swords and one day left to do so.  So I get to disappear into my studio and play.  I love audiobooks but I hate time crunches.  

  • I finished my book but now I get to wait for the next one.  Since that will be the last one out, then and only then will I watch HBOs Game of Thrones.
  • My tomatoes are flowering.  Hopefully we will get a better crop then last year but I still haven't found any zucchini.
  • I am worried about Kharma.  He was supposed to go in and get his teeth cleaned but when I got up to take him to the vet, he could hardly move.  We think that he rolled off the couch last night. He seems to be getting better and is staying hydrated so just gave him some pain meds and hope that he gets better.  He is the only dog that I don't have on pet insurance.

  • So instead Miss Boo went in and got her teeth cleaned.  Not a happy MinPin right now because she ended up having to have four teeth pulled.  I am so glad that my vet sent some pain meds home with her.  She's not being a happy camper.


  1. I did the same with the soup you sent me... put it on a tray then went through and picked out various beads and components that I might use with them... in several different colour combos, so.. the tray's pretty full >.<
    My tomatoes just got planted a week ago, so no blooms yet ( well not since I planted them anyhow, although it did have a bloom then). My spinach sprouted up beautifully, but now the middle bit is gone and the one end is flattened down and dying... I think that evil squirrel has been digging and laying on it >.< lol

    As for your rosebush, wait until fall and then cut the branches back, tie them up and dig the bush out. you can move it somewhere else or just offer it up to a neighbor.
