oh, it is so hot here. not even the movie theater felt cold today (hello, toy story 3, i loved you so much though). i am just sitting not wanting to do anything. the idea of snow seems so refreshing to my weary mind. alas, no summer snow... the white sand beaches i will be heading to in another week will have to do.  here is a little cool white for you, more appropriate for summer than snow, however. enjoy!

etsy finds, ear to the ground....

it was a nice welcome back to see my little sheep on the front page of etsy today, in the etsy finds. i'm back to work this week, trying to finally get things organized around here. i'm moving my studio, so everything is in general chaos right now.

we had a nice trip to colorado. i was glad to be there for my husband. they had a lovely slide show at the memorial service, and it was very moving to see someone's life played out in small little bits. you realize how important those small moments are.... they make up so much more. 

(that's my husband on the far right, he looks exactly the same.. minus the beard)

so i will be back to posting this week, and hopefully adding more to the shop soon.

hello, goodbye

summer always seems to be busier than you expect... we have been on the go since summer break started! this is an actual picture of our car by the way... and i can't wait to tell you all about our two week long trip... but life has gotten in the way. my only excuse last week was laziness. we spent the week as you should in summer, laying around, reading, playing outside, riding bikes, swimming and so on. it was just nice to be home again. i planned to get back to work, and blogging this week. sadly, my husband's grandmother died. she was a lovely lady (our daughter was partly named for her), who will be missed. she was my husband's last grandparent... a sad passage in life. so he and i are flying across country to say our goodbyes (wish me luck or good nerves at least, i'm a terrible flier). i will be back this weekend, and hope to resume my scheduled plan then. take care... xo.
