Busy Day....

...let's see, this morning I got to play with my Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland 8x8 paper stash. Cutting away and arranging things all day yesterday. Today I got to start gluing....don't you just love the colors in these papers?????????????????

Then at 2:30 it was time for Erin. We've got a schedule going here. It works pretty well. But after she hits the door.....everything changes. We did homework, walked the dog, played 3 games of Crazy 8's....that she won, then she helped make spaghetti with Poppie and was off to Soccer practice.


The little one comes in next....spaghetti, makes brownies with Poppie, takes a bath, then off to the After Hours in Peoria to have the doctor look a boo boo on her eye. She's fine, but then it had to start pouring. Mom was there to meet us and that's a good thing.

So, now, "peace and quiet and open air"...oh I got carried away with West Side Story there for a minute. This is the bracelet I keep telling you about. I got it at CHA in Anaheim. Always makes me smile and remember what's important every day. Remember to Play!!!!

These gorgeous earrings were my purchase at the Lincoln Art Festival Saturday. They're copper etched pieces that have been either torched or colored somehow. The artist was so busy, I forgot to ask him. BUT, the cool thing is the triangular copper piece is from a roof that was destroyed by Katrina that he somehow managed to get and has used in his jewelry. A sad piece of history on each ear.


That's it for today. Maybe, just maybe I'll get the Halloween piece done tomorrow and get more shots up. It's kinda cool if I do say so myself. At least it's been fun!!!!
And I Remembered to Play!
