A Blog to Check Out

You know how you get on the computer, decide to check out a blog (or two) then you start perusing their links, then THOSE links and so on and next thing you know it's the next day?
I think that is how i found this one...
Fabric Bliss
Be sure to check it out if you like/love fabric and all that goes with it. What timing since i've
started my fabric book cover this week.

Time Flies

So it's been 2 wks-guess time got away from me and posting.
Had a fun start to the wk-after working on fatbook pages for artfest, a little puppy decided to
try to eat a few-13 actually. ripped out the eyelet/ribbon on them before i caught him. Got them re-done and mailed and will post a picture this wkend.
Mon i had to go to the dentist for an unexpected root canal. Actually i should have expected it-broke a tooth a while back and since there was no pain, put it off-until pain hit and i found a new dentist on our plan...nothing like penicillin and vicodin to start your wk right!
Went for dinner mon night w/gary's family for he and his brothers' b-days. Lunch w/his mom and son on tues and dinner w/my parents tues night-got in all the bday celebrating for Gary-
happy birthday hon~
will try to get some pictures up this wkend on what i'm working on.

The NEst

Just realized i never added the picture of the nest(s) i did for our art swap in january.
Made 5 of them-4 for the swap and one to keep-they were all actually different sizes-i made the others taller so i could "smoosh" them down, but they didn't smoosh too easily. i like this
size/shaped one the best.

One World ONE Heart Give-a-way Event

What IS ONE World-ONE Heart?

It is a blog-wide giveaway event. The original idea behind this was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. Last years event had nearly 100 participants and many connections were made because of it......friendships that are still going strong.
Leave a comment to be entered in the drawing-
and check out all the other drawings here.

Drawing for my offering will be on Feb 14th~a random drawing from those who leave a comment.

If you would like to participate and have a giveaway in this event PLEASE click HERE and read all about it! It's NOT too late to come aboard and in the process meet new bloggers from all over the world!! AND there is a full list of all the participants there so even if you don't have a giveaway you can still enter all of them!

78 degrees in Feb...must be TX

Can't get the camera to upload again-will have to re-install the program so for now, just a post.
Made some artfest shoes this wkend. Had a pr of canvas tennies that i painted black and never did anything with-so now they are decorated with pink-they say "art fest" in front and " '08" in back.
Went to see Addison fri-she is smiling and holding her head up-will smile and stick her tongue out if you stick yours out. such a cutie.
Went to watch Nathan play indoor soccer sat night-first time he's played in a few yrs. (now he knows what no exercise and smoking will do) He went into the boards w/another player and twisted his ankle pretty bad-
pictures will follow-but that is the latest around here.
