It's done!

I was up until 4 am working on this last night. Time just sort of stood still and I couldn't stop :) After being stuck on what exactly was going on the inside, doing and redoing it again a few times, I'm really, really happy with how this has turned out. It makes my heart glad.

Happy Turkey Day

I've just been writing a big long dreary thing on being thankful for this and that. It was long, sort of depressing and a bit of a yawn to tell the truth. So lets just say that most of the time I think I'm the luckiest gal in the world. I'm thankful for all of it, everything, and all of the people who make life grand.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

P.S. Here's a photo of the teeniest tiniest mushrooms ever... just because they are the sweetest things imaginable!

Teeny weeniest moony shrine

Ok, this moon may not be smiling but it's still a happy little mystical place :) Available in my etsy here

I spent the morning helping serve a hot Canadian Thanksgiving dinner to the kids at D's school. I've eaten far too many cookies and turkey and am in dire need of a short nap before the kiddo comes home. *yawn!* I wonder how many winks I can cram into 45 minutes?

Haulin' ass (not really)

I've got a pant-load of stuff on the go and I really need to start finishing stuff up. I am simultaneously surprised at how much work I've done lately and in a complete panic that I need to do more for the show next week. *sigh*

Here's one of my works in progress....

The base is a second hand cupboard that I originally used in another piece. I wasn't happy with it so it's being repurposed again. The inside isn't done at all so no peeking in there just yet :)

Another happy moon

Last night the moon was so bright, shining through my window, that it kicked my ass into gear and I finished up this second moon shrine.

Potter goodness and Elves!

Woo hoo! I've finished putting together a Harry Potter package for the craftster Back to Hogwarts rnd 2 Swap. I'm really proud of it and I can't wait to show it off... but that have to wait until my lovely partner receives.

In the meantime... more strangeness from life on the Hill.

The kidlet went wandering yesterday. I sent him out with a camera and a walkie-talkie to snap some photos for our upcoming show in two weeks (yikes!). After a short while I heard the blip of the walkie talkie and then...

Mum! Mum! I found something but you CAN'T use if for your crafting! Come out and see!

This is what he found...

Isn't it fantastic?! It's quite small, maybe 5" long, and utterly beautiful and gloriously mossy.

I've been quite sure where the faeries, pixies and goblins reside on our hilly acres and now I know just where the elves live too.

Beans and Fidgets

Please excuse the sort of double post but I figured a magic bean was worth it :)

I found this on my driveway yesterday. It occurred to me that finding a bean really says a lot about a person.

Do you look down and shrug 'so what?'

Do you see the bean and think 'I wonder who dropped that?'

Perhaps you look up to the sky and say 'probably dropped by some damned bird'

Or, if you're anything like me, you are absolutely the type of person who believes wholeheartedly that this MUST be a magic bean deliberately left near your right foot by some cheeky imp who knows for certain you will plant it in the ground next year in an attempt to grow a beanstalk.

I know just which one you are :)

Anywho, I've still no finished work to show off. Today is making day so hopefully tomorrow will bring some shiny new photos. In the meantime here are some wee faces (excuse the poor light).

I made these at the craft fair the other weekend. The fidgeting seemed to distract me just enough to not be so nervous socially. I just might have to keep some poly clay in my purse for my next nerve wreaking social situation.

I might turn these fellows into moons but I'm not sure yet. I sort of like how they get progressively grumpier. The second last one looks truly disgusted by something :)
