Computer trouble

I've been having computer issues as of late. A virus apparently attacked my computer so I ran Norton looks like it cleaned it all up but now I cant log into my blogs to update them. AAARRRGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! So I've hijacked my hubby's laptop to ask for computer help. It says I need to enable cookies and java script...I enabled my cookies but I can't even find java script on my puter now. Someone please help!

New Blog

Hey all you bloggers be sure to stop by my newest blog, It's all about a new craft show I've formed here in Las Vegas. That the name was fitting.

So Ready For Fall

Well, fall temperatures anyway...and the whole feeling and look that goes with it. I even changed out my blog backgrounds to make me feel like it was getting closer. The heat around here is just not what I want at all at the moment. I know it's still August but I am done with 108 degree days. On a good note, we did get some rain today...about 10 minutes worth but I will take it. A cold (okay, cool) front has blown up out of Arizona and it feels good tonight. Now if we can just keep up with this it would be wonderful.

Works in Progress

Craft show season has snuck up on me this year. I've been slow to get things done for some reason. During the spring I had a hysterectomy and it took longer for me to heal than least what I expected. It was'nt like having my children by c-section, it was a lot harder. Anyway, I think it really slowed me down this year. So now I starting to work like a mad woman on projects. Here is some of what I'm working on lately.

I've been through my rag quilt phase. I've completed about a dozen or so of them. Sold several at a summer show, have several more that just need washing so I guess I'm almost done with that phase.

My last set of projects have been screen paintings. What is that you say? These designs are painted on solar screen. Lots of snowmen and pumpkins are running a muck around here. Some have been framed while others are looking for frames to call home.

I've been working on ornaments...not as many as I should have been working, but the ones I do have completed are adorable. These two are my own design that I've not made in several years. They've been updated with fleece and I really like them.

Everyone loves snowmen but I also really like Santas too. There are lots of people that collect Santa's and have some truly awesome ones. Let's hope they like this little guy to hang on they're tree this year.

I'll be at several craft shows this fall...not as many as last year though. Being cautious this year. When you see me, stop, say 'hi', and buy.

Baking Bonanza

Yesterday was spent with my 2 nieces baking cookies and brownies all day. We all enjoyed the day and the company. I haven't gotten to spend time with them in quite a while, besides it was a nice change of pace for them too. We made peanut butter cookies with chocolate drops, chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and even worked on some of the craft show items like snowman soup, etc. We got alot accomplished. I think they'll be back next week to make cinnamon rolls.

Etsy Update

Just added a few new items to my Esty site. Please come by to check them out.
