last tomato plant


I am going through my pictures from last year...boy I was so proud to see our tomato plants bloom...they were doing so well and out of nowhere they just died on me (together with eggplant, peas, beans, basil and peppers) ...
Last tomato plant is still sort of hanging in there but I am not hopeful anymore, it's official, I am the worst gardener in the world!

crazy mommy chicken is back


This picture is from last year....the same mommy chicken is sitting in our new stroller's basket....we almost missed it, and went running with her in it haha.... We did learn a lesson though and cut the basket and very gently put her down so we don't have to discard the whole stroller! Silly chicken!

fire


Every time we make dinner on a grill it is such an interesting event for both kids....is it an instinct (knowing that fire brings you warmth and comfort)? or is it just a pleasure to watch, I don't know but they love it, they surely do!

Nothing much has happened around here craftwise...and I am OK with that!

fear

Noodlehead has this awesome post about creativity and fear...........most of the fears she is writing about are my fears, actually all of them! I wish I was just like my daughter always creating, never doubting!

Shells


newest prototype.....just hope that I can remember how I made her, it was spur of the moment kind of thing and I didn't write anything down. My daughter likes her, but then again she loves all her dolls ....If I can make her again, I might start selling them on Etsy ....
