Beautiful Jewelry -look here!!

Happy Day art site has the nicest jewelry, I love it. Take a look


It's the Weekend. Finally. It is 13 degrees outside today. Very cold and icy.
Good time for books, books and more books. Maybe some photos for more practice and some time in the messiest art room you have ever seen.

E is taking Drivers Ed and I am a total wreck. She is in the 9th grade, she is a baby, she shouldn't be out there on those snowy and icy roads in a car with two other teens who have no idea what they are doing... Whose idea was it to let 14 year olds learn how to drive. Have you ever seen a 14 year old? I think that this is just another way to push me closer to the edge!!

Of course now she is trying to decide which car she will be driving to school this next fall. Ha!
Good Luck getting your mom out of the drivers seat!!

Reckless Kelly
The Festival At Sandpoint

Robert Earl Keen
The Festival At Sandpoint

Ha Ha, here are two groups that will be at the festival at Sandpoint. I also heard that Los Lobos, Lyle Lovett and one super secret guest will be there. I will try to verify this infromation and update. You know they never tell you who is going to be here until July. So it is fun to find out early so you can by an 'early bird' season pass if you want the discount.

It is over

I have to say that I am soooooo glad the Holidays are over. I have the hardest time trying to keep up with everything. I always feel like there is so much pressure to make everyone happy.
I did have my holiday panic attack the other night at around 1:45AM, very fun!! I didn't get back to sleep till about 4:30 or so.
I did wake up D to tell him and have him help me, usually I am too embarrassed to wake him up or let him know.
So, I sigh with great relief, that it is over.

I do love Thanksgiving though!! That is my real family holiday.

Computer help
day 3
I am still trying to figure out how to add links. I know it can not be that difficult but I can not get it to work.

But i have really been having fun looking at all the crafty art blogs and web sites. There are so many and they all have such great ideas.
i need to get my camera and start taking pictures of some of the stuff i have crafted.
i also told my mom that she needs to start a blog and have all her bird pictures and her crafty art stuff. i think she would like that.
I did think about my art room or studio yesterday, but still did not come up with anything. I did use the kitchen table to make some cool paper beads last night.

Today i will think about how lucky i am
