4:00 a.m..................


Treadmills
This is what happens to me when I don't have to get up the next morning.......my clock stands still and and work until my back says I must lay down:) How sweet it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Taking Karin's lead with her tutorial on Creative Chaos.....I decided to make a couple of crowns for a little shop where I sell my things. At 4:00 this morning I finished and am happy with the results. I am now going to strick off on my own with some more designs. They are really fun to make and if you have anyone about to celebrate ANYTHING......you might want to try. Karin is very generous in her tutorial and takes you step by step:) Thank you Karin...........you put a spring in my step when I revisited them this morning:)

Beautiful crowns. If I knew I could be that creative in the wee hours, I would never sleep. Love the flowers, too. Keep at it.

I have posted twice and I guess I did not do it right.....

I am loving your crowns you created.... See what fun you are having...I am jealous.. I want to stay home again. Your flowers are beautiful. I remember when I first decided to start planting looking at the MO clay bewildered me. How was I going to plant in clay. Now I think of it as a clay pot and I just dig a whole and fill it with dirt and guess what everything grows.

Keep up the great gardening and keep on creating...

love, angelica

Linda! Those crowns take my breath away! So beautiful! I am going to use my vintage wallpaper to make Natasha's crown....Speaking of which you have no idea the willpower I am exerting in order to hold off on buying more until I use what I have. And just what do I see when your blog pops up? That's really not fair you know.. :)
