Happy New Year!!

It would appear that I only post during certain favorite holidays, but I'm sure *cough, cough* that will change with the coming of the new year!

Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone has a safe and happy evening, full of spooky surprises and frighteningly good fun.

I'm baaaack! And just in time for Halloween, too! I promise I won't be spewing pea soup, though.

Lots to tell everyone, and a couple of projects in the works. More soon--hopefully this weekend!

2015 Texas Miniature Showcase - A Retrospective (2 months later)

The Miniature Showcase is held each year here in Dallas, usually the first weekend of May. I had Such. Great. Hopes. for this year's miniature event. Alas, they were not to be realized (in totality, anyway).

I should've known/expected something to be up once Rik's class was cancelled--especially since I was able to sweet-talk my hubster into letting me spend that kind of cheddah on the enrollment fee. (BTW, Rik has gone through surgery just fine and is well on the way to recovery... hooray!)

But no. Silly me, I had to continue thinking everything would turn out just peachy with a side of keen.

Miniature Floral Arrangements

I love making flowers. Like, love LOVE making flowers. So I thought I'd share an arrangement that I made recently for LaJuanna, who is one of the Board members of our miniature club. Her birthday was Wednesday, so I gave it to her at our meeting on Monday night.

Eye Candy

It's already February! 1/6 of the year has gone by. I'm not even sure how to begin feeling about that, though I do know I should blog more. Ahem.

Anyway, this weekend I went to the Society of American Miniaturists (SAM) birthday party in Austin, Texas. It was great fun meeting many of the ladies I'd heard about, and there were lots of samples of past birthday party projects. Apologies in advance for the photo quality. The lighting in the meeting room wasn't the best, and most of them were in dust cases and I couldn't get away from the reflections.

This quilt shop was one of my favorites. I love the way Kendra did the outside of the box.

Happy New Year!!

Apologies for length between postings. Of course there was the hustle and bustle of the holidays, then our cat got sick and we had to put her down. This was tough... she's been a beloved member of our family for 15 years. Then, three weeks later (and over Christmas), I came down with the flu.

Not our best Christmas ever, but I am confident that 2015 will be good to us.

Anyone that knows me knows that I'm not big on New Year's resolutions. I figure if there's something important enough to change in your life, why wait for one certain day of the year?

That said, there are a few things I'd like to focus on this year. In no order of importance, here are a few I've thought of off the top of my head:
