The ride is always bumpy at first

Hey all,
Just thought I'd update everyone on the meanderings, panderings, and wanderings of this bored small town gal (yes, I just called myself a "gal").

I went to the Neptune Festival in Virginia Beach last weekend and booooy what it HOT! I think I've now ruled out deserts or tropical climate areas as future homes....
It was a neat festival though--gave me lots of ideas I want to try this year.
This lady and her (husband?) were selling resin pendants that were pretty awesome. If you'd like to see more of her stuff check out her website: She said that she wasn't selling on Etsy at the moment, but they hoped to get more stuff up this winter.

Also, if you are not familiar with better get that way, because it is the one-stop shop for unique gifts (ok, so you'll want to buy for yourself too).

Let's see, what I'm working on now (when I'm not at work or being worked by home chores) is Bookbinding! Who knew that this was such a large hobby trend amongst creative farts like me. I had an idea for a Christmas gift for (someone) but I couldn't find anything premade, so I just decided I would make one. So I researched....and googled (yes, I like to google, leave me be) and found several methods. First, I am going to try Coptic stitch binding, because it seems to require the fewest materials. There are several youtube videos I've found, and hopefully I'll have made a book by the end of this week.

Oh and I should mention that my boyfriend and I are already gearing up for Halloween! He takes his holidays very seriously and I think he hopes to out-do himself this year.

Check out his B&B turned Pirate Ship house video from last year!
