I won!!!

I am so thrilled I entered a contest Sept 5. on CraftGossip Blog. We were ask to write in telling her something about sanding beads. Wendy had just purchased a Lortone rock tumbler and was telling us about it and wanted us to write in and tell her our experiences with using a tumble for sanding. Or just write to her about now we sand etc. Her Grandson would pick one to win a DVD by Lisa Pavelka. Well her darling Gandson picked my name. Now I can’t wait to received it. Problem is I am going to be really busy next week. I work at our county fair and put in loooong hours so I won’t have the time to sit and watch it until after Sept.28th. I know I will hear it calling me everyday when I walk by my craft room. And I know it will have one of those come hither voices at are hard to resist.
You know the kind. I may have to have my DH hide it from me.

Talking about the fair I have to get ready for it. I still have to finish putting prices on items and packaging. Then I have to make an inventory, and find a good way to transport everything back and forth everyday. So I better get my you- know- what in gear.

Thanks for visiting and when I get back from working the fair I will write up a review on my DVD. By the way the title is Claying around with Lisa Pavelka.

I know I am going to love it. Lisa is so good.

Bye till then.

the passing of a great artist…etc

While I have been online, I have not been responding to the posts on my groups as I usually do. But have been reading and today there was a post about the passing of a very great artist and friend of the PC world, that some of you probably know or have heard of, Alan Vernall. Alan belonged to at least one of the groups that I do and he was always there to help us out. He had a great since of humor. He will be sadly missed by everyone. My condolences go out to his beautiful wife Mary, family and friends.
I haven’t written in here in so long and now I have a lot to talk about. I have been busy doing research for my brother-in-law and that took a lot of my time. But it was well worth it as I think I found the items he needed to be able to go back to work. I love doing research but sometimes it gets frustrating when you can’t find what you are looking for. But it feels so good when you do run across the very thing you needed. Gives me a good feeling about myself. Especially when I am helping someone. 

I have also been busy doing Halloween items. We will be working theCounty Fair here in our town the week of Sept. 21st and I am planning on taking a few of my things to show. Hopefully I will sell a few. I have some in my Flickr album if you would like to check them out and make comments (nice ones please LOL) if you like.
I have also started adding vintage items to my Etsy shop.  I have found some really nice jewelry and clothes patterns.  That has been fun as I love the older things.  And of course like a good deal and then to pass it on to someone else.
Also I have made some texture stamps out of polymer clay, they are just little round disks and I got to wondering what I was going to put them on so I could use them easier. Well I got to thinking about the tops to pop/water bottles. I save these” just in case” so I had quite a few of them. I just glued the stamp on the cap. I haven’t used them yet so I don’t know how long the glue will hold or if it will ever be a problem. I have pix of those in the Flickr also. Let me know what you think.

And last be certainly not least to all of my Texas readers who are facing the Hurricane Ike, I am praying that you will make it thru this troubled time without any heartships. May God bless you all and your families and friends.

I hope everyone has had a good month since last I wrote and I will try to write more often.  I think of things I want to put in here but just never seem to have enough time in the day to do all that I want to do.
