I have officially retired this blog. Look for my new art blog sometime soon.

One of my least favorite things happened yesterday morning - one of my tenants called and let me know he and his sister are breaking their lease. Sigh. I am sooo tired of this. I don't mind doing it once a year but I get frustrated when it gets to be every six months. It is the price I pay for home ownership, so I am willing to do it, but not always without complaint. That said, I have been very lucky with the response I've received the last couple days. I've received at least 15 calls from listing solely on craigslist, and already have a couple potentials and an application in hand. Hopefully I'll even make a decision this weekend!

My friend Susan and my mother-in-law Donna came over Tuesday night for an art party! We had dinner and wine and made collages using fairy pictures that Susan had brought. It was so much fun. I love spending time about creative people! I always feel so inspired afterwards! Lucky for me, tonight is my cyberscrap night with Lisa!

The Ford finally died. It is literally on the road dead. No compression in two cylinders. But I am really excited about my NEW car!! Whoo hoo! Okay so well it's not a brand new car or anything, but it's going to be new to me! And it is going to run and be reliable! Very exciting! I haven't been able to drive on the highway since November, and since I am not a homebody, it has been slowly killing me. I am getting my new vehicle this week, so happy days will be here again!

I won't have as much creative time this week as Esme's party is this Saturday and we have quite a bit left to do to prepare. Mostly we have to get our entire house organized and everything put away so that our guests will be able to move freely through the house! Esme's party is going to be bigger than ever though, since she all of a sudden seems to have lots of little friends. It's a dinosaur theme. I am soooo wishing I bought those Basic Grey dinosaur stamps on clearance when I saw them!

I was so lucky to be a Guest Designer at Scrapperie this month and get to create with the Cherry Jubilee Essentials kit! The only thing added to any of these pages was Stickles - everything else came in the kit.

Just finished this new little bunting for Esme's Bitty Baby, Emily. So much fun to sew with a machine.
