Spring has Arrived

At dusk yesterday as we were outside enjoying the beautiful New Mexican sunset we saw a whole swarm of these on our lilac bush.

We thought they were hummingbirds at first but at closer inspection discovered that they were some kind of moth.

They flitted around and looked drunk with nectar. It was beautiful and I am so happy to have Spring arrive in the desert!

Golf Season

My oldest just made the school golf team.

So, got me thinking about golf......
I made her some cute flower ball markers. They are magnetic so she can change them to match her mood. They just attach to an alligator clip on her hat.

I guess I will have to make her some Tiger ones to match the school mascot. Go Lady Tigers!

It's my Birthday!

The vultures are circling...
My hubby has never been good at surprises but he definitely pulled this one off.

Good thing I am not sensitive to the number issue. It's all goooood! The sun is shining, my laundry is done, I am going to have a great day.

Cherry Blossom

I had a special request for a cherry blossom badge reel. I wanted the little pollen drops (for lack of better word) to stick out. I think it turned out nice. I especially like the dew drops on the petals.

So many possibilities with all of the fun supplies at our disposal.

Desert Rubble on Polymer Cafe

My April 2011 issue arrived today and I thought what a great cover!  As I was flipping through the pages I came across the artist profile and thought what beautiful and fun creations. Then I noticed her dragonfly and hey.... "I know that bug!" It is Lynn a.k.a. Desert Rubble. WOW!
Funny, I saw her picture on the cover and her beautiful pendant and did not know it was Lynn until I spotted her Dragonfly Avatar. Now I feel officially introduced.  Lynn is always so supportive and leaves the nicest comments here.

Without babbling on I just want to say....Congratulations! What a fun spin on steampunk and I love your style.

Check out Desert Rubble a.k.a. Lynn on Artfire and she also has a wonderful blog

I am in LOVE with that Piranah Fishie!  Great job Lynn! Keep inspiring us!
