Be careful of what you let me get my hands on

Wade should have hid that sledgehammer from me.
I started pounding away on the railing of the deck steps

Next thing you know we had a pile of wood like this.


That led to men with chainsaws and the deck looked like this


Finally it was reduced to this.

The new deck is up but unfortunately I'm still working on old pictures (like a month old almost) I'll get pictures of the new deck up as soon as I can

answering a question

A while back when I posted the first page in my new art journal Joan asked how I got the gold sunbursts.

This is the page I'm talking about

You can see one of the gold sunbursts she was asking about in the lower left corner. This is what I used to paint that page.


Plastic caps off of various bottles, a wooden spool and for the sunburst I used a nylon mesh bag rolled up. I had bought some wooden spoons and they came in that bag. I had read somewhere else about using different things around the house to paint with so I thought I would give the bag a try. I liked how it worked

I'm screening my calls


I knew that bark outside my door belonged to Duke so I didn't ignore the call to let him in but I did take his picture through the screen first.

Saturday was not a good day. My mood took a negative turn at the corner of late morning and early afternoon and coasted downhill from there. By early evening I parked myself in front of the computer and started playing. That is a perfect way to shut out that which annoys me. It also helped to get lots of posts ready to schedule.

Here's to a positive day today.

If you don't see me


I can't believe how fast the past year has gone by. It's already almost time for another craft show. I have one week left to finish things up. Between working, and trying get things ready for next weekend I may be making myself a bit scarce in blogville. Gotta run TTFN (ta ta for now)
