Picnics, petals and planes

Happy Friday, lovelies. This is just a quick little shout out before I pack up the car and head out today for the Indieana Handicraft Exchange in Indianapolis tomorrow. It was a wee bit late in the day so you might have missed it, but I posted a new Eye Candy over on the Blue House blog yesterday.  The theme was picnic and that is something I am looking forward to many of this summer!

Last week, I had the pleasure of doing an interview with Brianne from Petal + Handmade = Love. She has a feature called "Who Is Art" and asks really thoughtful questions. It was fun to reflect on things a bit. You can read it here.

You may think I haven't been thinking of you with these long lapses between posts, but I have — really.  I took this photo for you on my way home from work yesterday. See? It was just such a funny thing to see lying by the side of the road — I thought you would enjoy it. I will get back to posting more regularly soon… there is light at the end of my overscheduled schedule and I am determined to slow down a bit and enjoy this summer. I hope you'll be here with me! And now, I'm off to the kitchen for a little quick baking. I'll have a recipe for you next week!

On the road again…

Where does the time go, I ask you?! Some of you may know that in the spring and summer I take on a couple of gardening clients and that is exactly where most of last week went hence the humming silence of crickets here on the blog. With all the rain we've had this spring, it's been weed and mulch city for me. But I think I'm caught up for the most part and my other excuse was a quick jaunt for a long weekend down in South Carolina for a family fishing trip in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains — gorgeous! 

I took a special friend along for the ride and can't wait to share details about that later once it's live elsewhere on the interwebs.

In other crafty news, you can now find a selection of Sloe Gin Fizz prints and cards at Naka in Ferndale.

And, last but not least, I will be back at it this weekend in Indianapolis for the Indieana Handicraft Exchange Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. Come on down and buy some handsome handmade handicrafts.  How bout it?
