Grandma's chair, a tearful send off, and a weekend at the library

We spent the night at Grandma's during the summer. While we were there I sketched my favorite chair in the world. It's very oversized and comfy. I want to curl up in it now!
The little one was soooo sad to se me go this morning. She stood at my car and cried Mommy. It's Daddy's day to take her to preschool. I'm getting soggy eyed thinking of it.
The girls are thrilled at the idea of a Saturday morning at the library. Books to read... books to read... as a littl one I hear every week says.

an urge to sketch

I have a huge urge to sketch and absolutely no time to do it. It reminds me of one of the first creativemom podcasts I listened to when Amy started getting up at the crack of dawn to get creative time in. The only problem... I'm already on the highway commuting at that time. What to do. Wish Upon a star for a work from home offer from The Man? Oh well.

a new baby

We have a new baby that joined our family Sunday night. Around 24 hours after her baby shower. That must have been some good dip we were serving! And the cutest thing... my little niece's initials spell out m.o.o.!
We love you little moo! Welcome to the family

naked dog and a coke please

The Company bused all the employees down the street for free Varsity Combo meals and gave us really cool insulated lunch bags as gifts. It's good working for big red.

a day at the office

Around the office we have some interesting things on display. For example this bike. And it's nice to get free drinks... But best of all.... Free Slushies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And not just the average 7eleven flavors. Luckily self control is something I do have.

a night in the car

On a 103 degree night you do what you have to when the power goes out. Including sleeping in the car! And when the power is back on the next day you cherrish that little marvel, the AC.
What a night Thursday night was.

Happy Trails

We spent the day at a stable recently. I had some wonderful images of my girls. And had fun altering them. You can't really tell that there were other kids and horses... and just dusty old pine trees behind her originally.©2007 FairyMe

And the smallest had a perfect pose for mommy.

a boy, an invitation and Mr. Sleepy

I'm excited to start work on my first FairyMe project involving a sweet little boy. He belongs to a cmp buddy. This project will be an exciting one.

My sister-in-law is due soon, so I better get busy on those shower invitations. I think a special Fairy is in order for such a project!
And good grief, I'm so tired I had have 2 cups of coffee before I even left the house this morning! Let me tell you, driving through down town Atlanta with one eye open is a little tricky.
I'll also be trying to add some exciting new pages to .
We'll see, there's a lot of cleaning to be done between all this.

Fairies and metal butterflies

wahooo!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I'm happy as a bee in honey! My site has been launched. I still have plenty of content to create for it, but for now the main thing is to get some business or at least interest started. Wish Me luck!

Have you any metal flashing? Yes, the kind usually used in roofing. It makes a beautiful a piece of art when cut and poked and bent. It's all in what you want to create. NOTE: Very sharp use heavy duty leather gloves. It's seriously sharp. Special thanks to for the idea of working with Flashing.
