Me & my chickens!

Here I go again! After my whirlwind-baby-stuff-making-marathon a few weeks ago, I sorta fell into a creative slump...sort of...I did take advantage of the sunshine-y weather to clean up the garden & get it back in shape for this season's planting (& I will post those pictures at a later time)...I "kicked started" the creative energy & painted up my last "old" window that I'd found last summer at an antique store!! Yay! I then did it up with some chicken wire & decoupaged fabric in my beloved chicken pattern and voila!! Now to find the perfect place to hang it!
I will be away from blogland til early next week..going on a vacation of sorts..to O'ahu to visit my mom & DS! Maybe I'll get to visit the fabric stores there & replenish my dwindling supply! LOL! Oh I can dream, can't I?
See you girls next week!

Spring fever happenings

Well, I guess for me, spring has reached it's plateau! I have never been so "creatively energized" in a LONG time! I will post pictures soon of all my "creations" ranging from painting & redecorating my grandaughter's room to sewing baby blankets (galore!), burp cloths & hooded baby towels for my son's 2nd daughter due in a few months!I just don't know what in the world came over me! LOL! I am truly having a lot of fun though! And in the next few weeks I will start on my room, painting & decorating again!
My hens are laying like crazy & I find great pleasure & relaxation in stealing a few moments thru out my hectic days around here, just meandering in my backyard, watching the girls go about their busy-ness. One of them INSISTS on going over to my neighbor's house & hopping into one of their unfinished bedroom windows to dutifully lay her precious egg in there! Another one just HAS TO lay her eggs in my DIL's umbrella that stands on the porch of their house. These girls are just so comical!
I've really missed coming here & checking in on all of your blogs! I will definitely TRY to discipline myself to at least pop in to say hello more often! Oh! I signed up for Khris' F~R~I~E~N~D~S swap & got my partner assigned, so that IS exciting! Hmmm...wonder what I'll do next? I'm really itching to do a giveaway soon, maybe once I'm all done with MY room! LOL!
Until then, ladies.....
