Just Sitting Down with a cup of Joe....

Today I have actually had a moment here and there to think...what a blessing!
The last two weeks have been crazy! The busy-ness still hasn't stopped but at least it has slowed somewhat.
I have been really trying to make a go at this etsy thing and have done okay so far but now that I am back at work it is harder to get everything done...I really love putting the sets together and also love making things so it is my cup o' tea as they say, just harder with a job too.
We picked the remainder of our garden (except a bunch of carrots and 4 zucchini). The colors were so pretty, I took a picture to share with you:

I wanted some new images to use for the sweet and sinister swap and found them at Lisa's Altered Art on etsy. Please don't judge her stuff by my picture...the color saturation is all wrong and I am not a techie-- The colors are much richer in person. But I wanted to share these cute collage sheets and Patty-the proprietor is very sweet and easy to deal with. Go visit her!

Don't you just love those cute little munchkins dressed up like witches, elves and fairies?

I know I have whined about how crazy-busy life has been lately. Obviously it shows that I am really in need of some serenity! So...I took a picture of my favorite angel to give you an idea of what makes me feel happy and more serene!

Isn't she pretty? My mom and Marissa don't really like her but I think she is perfectly tattered....and speaks calm to me...

Hope you have a Calm, fun and productive week! xoxo karen....

I love the carrots. I try and try to grow carrots, but they won't come up. I'm happy you can grow them. Take care, Arah
