It's very late and I need to go to bed but I have been so busy with projects and just can't seem to get things finished!!! I decided to take off the contest as no one seemed interested. But that's cool, maybe a later date would be better anyway. I just am in the mood to give for some reason!
All of yall that wrote about the photo of the tree, well it is a photo I took when I went to Maui over a year ago. I made a photo story and it's an hour long, but it's got some really pretty pics and I couldn't even put all of them in! I added music to it too. I wonder if I could figure out how to insert it in my blog. It may be too long to fit though. But it sure is pretty and it tells the story of what happened when I was there. I am not in many of the pictures. But in case I get a chance to put the video in, I don't want to give it away. But I put up another pretty pic for yall to see. I didn't take this picture though.
So... I have taken 100 pictures of each of these collages and can not get a good picture of either!!! The landscape here is one I started to make for my Etsy Texas Crafter's Team "one on one" swap, and when I finished it, it just didn't seem right for her. I was trying to do something not to frilly, but I do kinda like it and maybe someday someone will buy it. I promise it looks so much better when you see it in person where it's not all blurry!
Here is the one I finally made for her as her favorite book is the Bible, & her favorite color is purple. I needed it to be simple and meaningful too so I put the quote from Psalms 23 on a scroll. I wish I could get a better pictrure for it though.
It also looks much better in person where it's not blurry and everything is crisp. You can't even see the folding in the dark leaves hardly and there is a touch of glitter on the light leaves and the rods for the scroll. I will try to take more pics of both and replace these.
And last but not least! Ruth of Rhadcliffe Designs, I follow her blog and she follows mine so you can go to her blog if you can find her pic by scrolling your mouse over my thumbnail pics, and http://RhradcliffeDesigns.Etsy.com is her shop....yall must go see her work! She does beautiful paintings! I own the watercolor print above!
She also has another shop called http://ElephantDreams.Etsy.com where she has gorgeous photos! I'm showing yall a couple of my favorites. She's a Houstonian also, actually lives in Katy just outside of Houston. That is where Renee Zellweger is from. Well...she sent me an invite to join in on a fun thing to do in this Blog Land......this is what it said......

Liz Edgar tagged me with this little meme
Here are the rules:
1) collect the book you most handy
2) turn to page 161
3) find the 5th complete sentence
4) Cite the sentence on your blog
5) pass it on to other blog friends
here's Liz's: "A lavender haze was setting over the hillside, and the air seemed unusually sharp, causing Alex to shiver in her wool suit, sheer stockings, and low heeled shoes" (Manhunt by Janet Evanovich)
here's mine:"The SQ is responsible for all parts of the province not under the jurisdiction of municipal forces, of which there are many in the Montreal suburbs" (Grave secrets by Kathy Reichs) Sorry mine isn't very exciting.
I have chosen:
Here is mine...in honor of Katy, Texas and Renee Zellweger I picked...
From Bridget Jones's Diary...Actually I cheated and picked out the best sentence on the page...If you have not read this book, well there are 2 books and 2 movies... I highly recommend both of the movies and books! The other book and movie are called:
Bridget Jones:The Edge of Reason.
Friday 4 August
Thigh circumference 18 inches, negative thoughts 600 per minute, panic attacks 4, crying attacks 12 (but both times only in toilets and remembered to take mascera), lottery tickets 7
I'm suppose to pick out people to also do the same! Any volunteers? When you write a comment, if you want to, you can write it on your comment! That would be fun! But you don't have to at all.
Anyway, I'm going to be sick tomorrow as it's so late and I have to get some more stuff done before I go to bed and tomorrow will be going to wish my Uncle Happy Birthday. I think he's 95! So much to do and so little time! I really wanted to also browse through yall's blogs today and leave comments! That will have to wait though for another day.
Good night to yall & thanks to everyone that made such sweet & nice comments!
Makes my day!!!
