Thankful Tuesday

Today is going to be a great day. I started the day off with breakfast and a morning walk. Next, I am headed out to get new tires for Minnie. When I was little I had a big wheel and completely wore the tire flat and cracked it open. Well somethings haven't changed, except I did not crack it open. Apparently, it is important to keep your tire pressure checked to evenly wear your tires. Hum does the tire gauge come in pink?

Our watermelon patch is growing wonderfully and we think we are about one week from having delicious watermelons. Middle School is going well and small child seems to be adjusting nicely. The workload scares me some - there seems to be a lot more parent involvement with work May have to brush up on a few things, unless it is something computer or art related.

My tags and birds are in my local fav scrapbook store Creative Chaos and doing very well. I hope to have some new ones this week. Plus, I have so many wonderful ideas floating in my head!!

Have a wonderful day. Photos later in the day! Not only am I thankful for all the things above - I am thankful for each of you who read my blog. Thank you for being a part of my little creative world.

Welcome Weekend

We made it through the first week of middle school. I still can't believe my sweet little one is in 6th grade. Where did the time go?

We have 2 baby snails in the fish tank. Soon we will have to get a bigger tank. All the hermit crabs are doing great.

Our watermelons are about 2 weeks out from being ready. We have about 20 so far. We are looking into pumpkins today. Not sure if we plant them now if they would be ready for Halloween.

I sold two books on half.com. Not bad. There are a few more listed and as soon as I get in my studio to clean there will be more.

Hubbie is playing golf today, so it is a girls day!! Wonder what we will do.

Books, tags and More!

Finally, (horns blowing, balloons popping and flamingos clapping) I have started selling. It is a small step, but one I feel that is in the right direction. I have listed several of my book stash on half.com and have put a package of my tags on etsy. I hope to clear out enough stash to be able to get in my studio and be able to create.

I was awake last night or this morning shall I say, thinking of all the great ideas I have in my head. Hope they all make it to life. I must go work on a website, blog header and run a few errands. I will also be jazzing up my graphic/web design blog this weekend.

As promised here are our watermelons. I am not sure how big they will get. I must go find the pack.

Happy Tuesday!

What a busy weekend. My sweet little one turned 11 on Saturday! We celebrated with cup cakes, finding out her snail in the fish tank had a baby and then the Birthday Girl lost a tooth. Bella starts Middle School a week from today so we have been busy gathering the rest of the school supplies, starting the mountain of laundry and going through our stuff for an upcoming yard sale.

I listed some books I have on half.com - username - artzychic. I am making the jump to Art Fire and will be listing a few things on Esty. Hope all is going well. I will have pictures to add as soon as the camera battery charges.

I can't wait to show you the watermelons we have in our little patch in the back yard. We started them from seed and are very proud of how they are doing. One would have probably been very big but Zuzu decided to take it as a play toy. Hum. Next years garden is already being thought out with a nice fence around it.

Stay cool. It is another scorcher here in the South.

Holiday Tags

I have been working on these tags forever it seems. I designed them, had them professionally printed and then did nothing with them. Well this is their lucky week. When I went to take a photo we decided to have our afternoon thunderstorm, so I am hoping the colors are ok. The tag is pink with the holiday phrase and the scalloped circle is a lovely celery color. I love the color combo of pink and celery and teal and celery. I hope to have other sets photographed to show tomorrow. I will try scanning and see what happens. They will be in my etsy shop on Friday. I was thinking it was too early to start for the holidays, but we only have 4 months.Have a wonderful evening. I still have a few spaces in the Pay It Forward if you are interested!
