Well, Hello there!

Wow!  Where have I been?  It seems like when it warms up, I don't seem to do a lot of crafting.  I do, however, do a lot of stamping and that's what's been going on.  I have been swamped with orders since Mother's Day and now Father's Day is here and I'm still busy!  Hopefully, I will get back into a new blogging routine in the next week when I slow down a little bit.  Until then, I just wanted to pop in and say that I'll be having a booth at the 2nd Annual Beer Cheese Festival
in downtown Winchester, KY this weekend.  It's from 10-6 on Saturday, the 12th.  I'll have a bunch of new pieces that I'm not going to show until the festival, so you'll have to wait until my next post to see them if you don't come down!  I hope everyone is having a great summer!

I have a question for you...

I am in the process of creating a special "Kentucky" piece for my collection.  Our state is hosting the World Equestrian Games this year and it's a pretty big deal! 
We'll have tons of visitors to our community from all over the globe and I'd like for them to take back something that they will treasure from their visit here.

I'm wanting to make something that has words or phrases that represent our beautiful state.  What comes to mind when you think of Kentucky?




Please help me brainstorm! 


Thanks so much!

And the winner is...

So glad it's the weekend!

I am so glad it's Friday!  It's been the perfect day!  It's 75 degrees here, my daughter had an Easter egg hunt at school, my husband is mowing the grass, we're going to Lowe's later to look for a new pump for the pond, and we're going to grill out!  Wow!  I love spring!


This is how my pond looks when I take care of it
So beautiful!  But last year my pump went out and I didn't get another one and it looks so sad right now.  It's just an empty green water mess!  The poor fish probably can't see where they're swimming!  I'm making it a goal to keep it up this year.  I love the sound of the water and my windchimes.  It's so relaxing!  So hopefully, they will have what I need at Lowe's and I can reclaim this beautiful pond! 

Have a great weekend!
