Well, we are in to the Patriotic season.   Thanks in part to my parents, I love Red, White & Blue!  I really need to get working on items for 4th of July, where has the time gone?  I do have a couple of feather trees listed, but need to get some larger ones made.  Some other Patriotic items that I have, but have not listed yet, are paper style ornaments and some jewelry.  Why am I so behind?  It’s not like I can get anything done outside with all of the rain, so what have I been doing?  Hmmmm, I have been trying to get caught up on paper work, but that isn’t going very fast.  I usually end up working on jewelry, or some other craft.  One thing that has been keeping me busy is all of the Belly Dancing Silk Veils that I have been getting orders for.  I love dying them and seeing how the colors and patterns transform as they dry, but this is done with a steam iron.  I have to put the ironing board right in front of the air conditioner.  At least I have air conditioning!!

I hope that everyone’s summer is going well so far.  It has been rainy for the last few weeks and now you can add Hot and Humid.  Yuck!!!  My “plan” is to post update a little more often, but you know the saying about the “best laid plans”…..  Keep cool everyone!

Busy, busy, busy!

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been a busy little beaver.  I have been working on several projects while watching the Olympics.  In addition to my feather trees for the Halloween Convention, I have been dying and painting silk veils and scarves to sell this weekend at Belly Dance Kalamazoo.  They are holding workshops and selling Belly Dancing items there….. it should be a fun weekend.  My daughter, Brenna, has been Belly Dancing for exercise (and fun) and really enjoys it.  I made her a veil as an early Christmas present several months ago that featured stars on a back ground of purple hues.   In addition to veils and scarves, I will also have an assortment of jewelry to sell.

The count down is on for the arrival of the jewelry from John Wind!  It seems like we’ve been waiting for ever to get it, but it’s just that I’m so anxious to have it.  I’ve never been one to wear a lot of jewelry, usually just my wedding rings, the same old earrings and the necklace my husband got me years ago, but between Art by Amy and John Wind, I am now!  Instead of just throwing some clothes on and heading out the door, I now have to plan my outfit to go along with what jewelry I feel like featuring that day….. kind of a fun change of pace.

As for my husband, he is slowly getting his energy back.  We have going to the mall and walking around to get his exercise.  I’m not sure when he will feel strong enough to go back to work, but each day he’s getting better.  Thanks again to everyone for all your thoughts and prayers for him…. and to my sister, Connie, and Leslie Kirk for keeping up with my website!

That’s it for now….. have a lot of errands to run today (and more walking), and best of all, Brenna will be home for Spring Break today!
