Snow and Chickens and Wallets and Love

It is flippin' snowing again! I was just noticing yesterday that the grass is starting to get a green tinge to it......and now it's white. Grrrrr........ LOL, it's pretty much melting right away, but still! This is a little something for the Apron Queen! I just wanted you all to see what I have to put up with with my rooster--He is such a bad a**!

The Apron Queen has a really interesting blog post about the Legend of the Rooster --be sure to check it out!! AND what sounds like a really yummy Chick, taters, and beans recipe.

Look what my SIL sent me yesterday! Pics of my sweety and her cousin all ready to go to the Ball. I just can't get over how old they are getting, and what lovely young ladies they are getting to be. I sure wish I knew how to photoshop in a new background though (ooopsy!! lol--it looks like the unicorn has gored poor Rissa right through her head!).I just finished and listed a beautiful new collage--I made this one with Mother's Day in mind--though it would be a lovely gift for any time of year. The main elements are a super cute olive green polka dotted vintage linen napkin used for the background, a lovely vintage millinery flower (purchased from LisaCook at Etsy) , a beautiful old rhinestone heart button, and some pretty feminine papers. I did some interesting things with the frame on this one--pop over to my shop and check it out!I got a request this week from our mutual friend--Sweet Repeats aka Lucy Sweet Lucy at Etsy--to make her a pretty wallet for her business cards. Well, I went a little crazy and made up a few different ones for her to choose from, plus some extras for my shop! lol Yeah, that's how I roll!They are listed in my Etsy shop--if anyone else needs a cute new wallet!

If you click on any of the pictures, it will bring you directly to it's listing--easy peasy!This is the one she ended up choosing--know what? I had a feeling that she would pick this one!! lol The design on this one was inspired by the lovely artwork I won from her...see here and HERE .

Well, that's it for today--Have a wonderful weekend!

Mandi said...

Haha, I love that! Those wallets are awesome too! Aren't they so much fun to make? I use one all the time as my primary wallet, it rocks.

RYC: Yeah, I laughed when I saw it was a travel agency... then I was annoyed cause they took the name I wanted and it didn't even fit their business... Crazy people ;-)

Thanks for the comment!
