I just finished up a bunch of new things for the Sellwood garden tour tomorrow (I'll be set up on 17th). I have a bunch of posts in my draft box waiting for the time to finish. I'm thinking a big bulleted post will be coming this week. Until then here is a picture from my photo lesson with Lisa last weekend (more about that later).
Be back soon.

Which way is up

The end of the school year crazyness has officially begun. It seems like we have been on the run for a few weeks, and have a few more to go. Adding to the list of things to do, is the community garden plot. I can tell we are already forming a love/hate relationship with it. This picture was taken a few days ago, after we replanted, and before the newest crop of weeds grew in. All the seeds I started inside died pretty quickly. Maybe the 50+ degree temp fluctuations we've been having are to blame. We're hoping the second time is the charm.

Our front yard is actually beginning to feel like our own. After two summers of battling it, and moving things around, we are starting to figure things out. This spot is definitely my favorite. Those colorful circles are from Leah, and I love them. She makes the most awesome glass mobiles, you can see her shop here.The Art Hop last weekend was fun, but possibly the hottest show I have ever been to. Having a tent on blacktop in the 95 degree heat was brutal. I was able to get a quick pic of this ball before I sold it. It was made from a huge reclaimed hamster ball, and practically glowed in the sun. I am definitely on the hunt for more of those.
The parade was exactly what I expected, and so much fun. I am working on getting all my pictures uploaded to flickr tonight. I'll have pictures from the past few shows and both parades.
Have a great long weekend everyone.

Technical Difficulties

Lots of things happening around here, but the computer was taken over by a "trojan horse" sp?. Matt has been slowly reloading things, and it seems like only a few were lost. The boys' school had their annual auction last week. This window was the project I helped Mason's class create. It turned out really nice. They did such a great job. I've also had a few custom orders going out, but haven't been very good about taking pictures. I did get one of my favorite house numbers so far. If you want to see it in it's permanent home, look here.
This past Saturday the kids were in the St. John's parade with their basketball team, and Sunday I filled a last minute empty spot at Crafty Wonderland. I took a ton of pictures, but will have to wait until all is fixed before I post them. Hopefully the nice weather holds out so I can get some shots at this weekend's parade. I've heard the parades on Alberta street are fun, but the crazy random St. John's is gonna be hard to beat.
