Morning walk

    Just a quick post before I am off to work for the night - I took these pictures this morning on my walk with Miss Kyna (my puppy).
   Believe it or not they were taken with my phone - I was tempted once I got home to go back with my 'good' camera but  I was hot and didn't feel like it (very HOT and muggy, very early this am) and it turns out I really didn't need to for these 3 pics anyhow.....
   If the clouds are good again though I will have to go back and  shoot more - love how these turned out!!!!
   Didn't get much done in the craft room the last couple days except clean but just wait till my next day off and I am going to create up a storm.... :)
  All for today

Wild Heart Halloween

   I know I haven't posted much this summer but the end is near - my kiddos leave for college in just a couple days and I will have more time in the craft room (and more room in my house - boxes everywhere right now :)
My DH is driving up to Nebraska with them this year so aside from work next week I am totally on my own - me and the puppy and the 2 cats that is :).
  Another Sweet Pea Stamps creation for you today for Halloween. I used Charity Dunhauer's "Wild Heart" and colored her with copics. It was a fun little project.
   All for today - ran too many errands and now I think I will need a nap.

A rug for off to college

  I haven't actually gotten in my craft room much lately - with my DD in there and this rug to finish before the kids go off  to college, and the packed bags and boxes sitting everywhere.....
  I started this rug for my son to take to college with his - started it in May I believe and mostly worked on it in the evenings - a couple hours at  time until this last month where I have worked on it more in the daytime too.
  It measures 33 inches by 57 inches - so almost a yard wide by little over a yard and 1/2 long.
  Its make from a fabric called 'interlock or interlocken' and feels like a thinner soft knit. Someone I meet at the fabric store one day had a bunch of leftovers of this material from her creative endeavors and didn't know what to do with it all - the fabric is a bit more on the expensive side but her scraps weren't big enough for any of her projects. She ended up giving me all her scraps - mostly red and black but a bunch of white too - I have enough after this rug to make at least another the same size and probably a smaller one too....... First I have to finish off a rug for a Christmas present and then I may go back and make another like this one....the interlock is very easy to work with for the rugs and should be pretty durable too.....guess we will find out after my DS tests it out in his dorm room for awhile :)
   All for now - I need to try and get some more sleep before work tonight - haven't been sleeping well lately.......

Summer sweetheart - Thinking of You

  Its another challenge from Sweet Pea Stampers today (I missed the last one - summer caught up to me I guess - that and trying to get my 2 kiddos ready for college... :)
  Our challenge this time is "Thinking of you/Missing you .
  I used a Ching Chou Kuik image called 'Toadstool Fascination' and colored her with prismacolor pencils. I just love the look on her face - you cant help but be drawn to her eyes.
  All for this am - I am pre-posting because I am working these last couple days - the 12 hour night shifts seem to be getting longer and longer!!!
   Have a great weekend!!!!

Da Hubby's Baby

   A quick one again this am - lots of stuff to try and get done before I head into work this evening....
  Just a few pictures to show you - took these pics of my Hubby's Harley and then had some fun playing with them in photoshop and.
decided to frame them up.
  The sketchy look of the photos in Black and white look great with a black and white mat and silver chrome frame.
  I will be taking this trio to my booth in Panama City at RTA Designs - all handmade store :)
              I have a Sweet Pea Stampers post all ready for you for tomorrow as its time for a new challenge so stop back and play along :)

Pumpkin Sprite - second version

  Well after the heat and humidity of yesterday, this morning is so nice and cool and dry - took my puppy for about an hour walk (she's so happy now :)
  My DS did well getting his wisdom teeth out yesterday and is still asleep this am so I guess he's not hurting. He's a tough boy!!!
  I have another version of the 'Pumpkin Sprite' by Mitzi from Sweet Pea Stamps to show you this am.
  I did a purple and green thing with her 'hair' this time :) Colored her with my prismacolor pencils.
  Short and sweet again this am - a bunch of errands to run and then hopefully some time in the craft room....

Pumpkin Sprite

   A quick good morning here - my son is getting his wisdom teeth removed today so not sure how the day will roll - he's a tough kiddo so I am sure I will have a good portion of the day for the craft room but thought I would post once in a blue moon here first.
  I have been doing a lot of coloring, just hadn't gotten many projects made up until yesterday. And I have been working on my son's locker hook rug for him to take to college with him (in just over 2 weeks - akkkk. but its almost done)
  Todays image is from Sweet Pea Stamps called 'Pumpkin Sprite' and I colored her with my prismacolor pencils. Such a cute little sprite - love the 'hair' on this one - perfect 'do' to go with the pumpkin costume :)
  After yesterday, I am ready for a bit of fall - typical summer in Florida weather - HOT and HUMID - you would think after about 15 years that I would be used to it by now. :)
   Well time to get out the door - Have a great day!!!
