Busy Weekend

Today Jason and I did this in my yard!  We took out the old edging (black plastic ugly) and dug the trench and used my belgian block from the wall in the back that we replaced last summer!  It's really really pretty and will be better when I get new plants!  I have a few more areas in the yard to do, it's going to look so great when it's done!  It was hard work!

agreed...anytime digging in the yard is part of a project, it always turns out to be more work than I expected! Once I spent a whole afternoon trying to dig a big rock out of a place where I wanted to plant a shrub. I dug all afternoon and I never got to the end of the must have been bigger than 2.5 feet across because that's how wide the hole was. I finally gave up and tossed all the dirt back in and decided only small annual flowers with shallow roots will ever be planted there!

I love stone edging but as you say, it is a lot of work. But so worth it.

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases! This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below. These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantast

Art Elements Theme of the Month - January - Use Your Stash

Usually I'm so much better about the January Use Your Stash Challenge (hosted by Lindsay Starr this time), but this year, time is just not my friend. Between the holidays, going away on vacation, and getting back to work and trying to make new beads, there's just not a lot left in me at the end of the day.  But I did manage to get this pair of earrings made using Inviciti heart charms, some new metal spacer beads I just got, and some titanium hematite beads picked up at a Bead Fest here and there! I really like them, mostly because they are simple and hearts are my thing!  Check out what everyone else made! Thanks for stopping by!
