I now have 48 new gray hairs that I didn't have before....but Joe's driving lessons are coming along quite nicely (haha)! Really, he is proving to be a pretty calm driver and is getting a little better at steering smoothly, braking smoothly, and stepping on the gas pedal smoothly. It's a good thing---whiplash is not a good thing! (see below--Joe has always enjoyed driving!)We had a big wind storm come through yesterday (the bad storms were to the north of us and we just got the residual winds)--lots of tree branches laying around. The hub had to miss church this morning because the richest man in Duluth had a big branch come down, hit another tree, which uprooted and fell onto his driveway--so Hubby had to get over there and take care of those trees ASAP so he could get out of his driveway! lol I had to ask--why the heck doesn't he just take the helicopter? *wink*
I'm in the thick of my big wholesale order and haven't had time for much else crafty--but did manage to make this cute bag with the sweet puppy
Last, but CERTAINLY not least---I've been honored with this award from the lovely Southern Lady Vintage-- Brilliante Weblog Award! Seriously, it is so seldom that I am called anything even remotely close to brilliant--so I really like this one!! LOL In all seriousness-- I am honored Barbara, thank you so much!!Now, as you know, blog awards are for sharing! So, here are the rules.....
--I always enjoy digging through the feedsack prints--working with the old patterns and lovely colors always makes me happy!I also had a customer who wanted me to make her some sheep tags--she is yarn dyer and spinner and wanted special tags to hang on her product. I did some up for her--and then decided that maybe others would like some sheep tags too--so I made up some colorful ones for my shop! I thought these would be really fun for people who knit or crocheted to add to their gifts or products!-- Don't you think?
The rules for receiving this award are:1) Put the logo on your blog.2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.4) Add links to those blogs on yours.5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.
There are so many blogs that I read and love--in fact there is a big list of them off in my right hand side column--that it would be really impossible for me to just pick 7 to award this to--it makes me uncomfortable---I think you are all BRILLIANTE! So I've decided to award it to my 2 pregnant blog friends! Just because I love them both and I also know that we all need a little boost when in the "delicate" condition! lol Their blogs really are Brilliant--so they deserve it.
Please go pay them a visit and say HI! and read their wonderful blogs
