A good omen.

Little chef at work preparing beenie weenies.

Look how our girl is growing! So foxy!
Azalea and I enjoyed a perfect, quiet weekend - we caught fireflies, searched for four -leafed clovers, took long naps and made fairy feasts. We went to the movies and saw Kung Fu Panda, which I highly recommend; its a comedy with a strong message that if you believe in yourself, anything is possible. Which is something I can agree with one hundred percent.
I also spent time researching recipes to make fruit water and found a site that carries fruit concentrates in delectable flavors (blood orange and white peach! Now you know they are speaking my language!). I will be ordering some goods from The Perfect Puree of Napa Valley right away- I think I'll try to recreate a Blood Orange and Brown Sugar Martini from Zen Den.

Occasionally, when I have loads of work to do, I find I have an urge to do something unrelated and without monetary gain. This time, I've decided to make nice things for the friends that have made a difference with their exceptional kindness for us here GGS. I want to make little drawings or pendants(maybe a combination!) - hopefully I can get everything done before we leave for Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando (Bead Mercantile Shows). Well, its time to get to work!

That sounds like the perfect sort of weekend! :)

Be sure to show us if you make little drawings or pendants for your friends. I always love to see what you draw. Your style really appeals to me.
