I must apologize for not visiting all my favorite bloggers like I used to – faithfully.  I really do hope to get back into the blogosphere soon but that may not be until fall, I’m afraid. You see, I am swamped. Swamped with dog biscuit making, scone making, crafting, painting, yard sale-ing and, of course, work. The first Farmer’s Market of the season is in three days. Count ’em…3! And I’m busting my butt bagging up some yummy Bow WOW Biscuits and assorted scones for opening day…all the while attempting to figure out how to set up my market tent so I don’t have to arrive at 6 am that morning and struggle with it.


The dog biscuits are a big hit with the boys. I already knew that – as I’ve made them in the past and the boys would gobble them up. But…I used to make them at my restaurant where I was uninterrupted. Now, I must make them in my kitchen with two dogs constantly under foot waiting for hand outs.


The dog biscuit making process tuckers Gus out and he eventually ends up sleeping at my feet.

The crafting is in full swing now. Every corner of my house is full of crafty goodness…pillows, bookmarks, hairbands, clothing, purses, collages, you name it.


Kitchen counter now full of crafts...

It's all about the 'love'

The paints have found a new home

I’ve started painting furniture, to boot. Where the hell I’ll be storing all of it is beyond me.

Cutesy little rocker that will soon be all dolled up for the craft fair

Now that I’m in full furniture-scoping mode I’ve been scouring the yard sales and flea markets.

I found this little gem for myself…


It will look perfect in my newly painted dining room. Yep, I’ve painted the dining room for the third time this year. Oy. I just can’t seem to decide on a color. I think this last color – buttery yellow – is a keeper. I love yellow with red accents so I painted myself a little sign for the new dining room…


Don't ask. My favorite number is 5 and I needed something to write on the sign...it was either this or "For Sale"!

And, of course, along with the new paint color had to come new drapes and shades. Like I need to spend my time fiddling around with this stuff? Oh, but I do. So, I made new curtains and bought new bamboo shades.


We DID have time to enjoy the first strawberry shortcake of the season – complete with homemade whipped cream. YUM!


Here are a few more pics…just some crafty shots

For lack of anything better to share with you today I’m posting my “Dog eats Cat” drawing that I submitted for the Pictures of Doom Contest of Doom. And…bronsonfive selected mine as his personal favorite. Woo hoo! Go check out his fabulous and highly amusing blog, you won’t be sorry.

* no animals were harmed in the making of this picture (no worries, Teeni! 😉 ) This drawing is based on actual events – but the cat always gets away unscathed.

Right, so…I was at least able to do a sort of caricature of the dogs in this piece, but I went all abstract and crazy with the colors. I’ll keep trying. Honest, I will.

Another Attempt…


The Sun no Longer Sets in Your Eyes (seg 2008)

I started off in an attempt to create something less abstract -inspired, as I was, by the amazing illustrations over at City Pictures. But, alas and alack, I ended up with another abstract. I don’t like it. Pfffffff. It looks just like a puzzle. I’ll give it another whirl and see if I can’t come up with something more realistic. M’kay?

Now that I’m officially unemployed I thought I’d better find something better to do with my time other than making voodoo dolls. Sooooooo, I’ve been honing my MS Paint skillz. I think I may have found a new hobby and I’m pretty sure it’s going to take up all of my time so I may NEVER be able to go back to work.
