Today hope to get moving on some shell greeting cards.

Texas Bound

Don't know exactly where summer went.
It's almost time to become Winter Texans again.
Never got much time to be here...everyday activities,
family and way too much politics this year.
DID do something good for myself though...took the Hunter's
Ed course locally and passed. Proud as punch! :-)

On our way home from Port A, Tx.

Passing through, Arkansas and Missouri saw some pretty bad flooding from all the rain last weekend. Farm fields are a mess. Am so sorry for the farmers.
Should be back soon. Hope to post some new cards.

Pit Beads

"Art in My Garbage" is a favorite theme I deamed up.
All that "stuff" in the trash-bin surely has another life as an "art supply" - Yesterday the discovery was date pits ;-D
They scrub up well, have a nice rustic, "woody" look and make great beads when drilled with a fine dremel bit. Have also just discovered "sea beans", along with the lovely shells on the Texas beaches. The teeniest bit of baby oil shines them up nice. Avocados, apple seeds, prune pits, etc. can all be used as well. http://www.beachbeans.com/bean_descriptions.html
