Spider sit down beside me

Out in the hoop house today to check on the lemon tree and water it with epsom salts solution and look what I found  After last count…I gave up after hitting #46 because there were more in the bay tree. I believe after looking them up most are female which means next Spring there will be a lot more. Must be something out there they are interested in.

Now …what to do about it.?

Please feel free to leave links in the comments to any other bits of Monday Magic that come your way. It’s good to spread them around.

CAS in the crafting world is’ copy and share’ or’ clean and simple’. Mine is the first. In one of my orders came this flyer from Echo Park Paper Co. Looked like a good design to CAS so I did on a card for the good neighbor who gave me the figs. The card is on the left. lol


I also got the mail out to my customer.  Some of this was all ready to go. A few had to be a late night project.


Good Figs

Good neighbor Brenda called and had a gal. of these beauties. In the dehydrator because I am really trying to get away from sweets..sugar any way. Aren’t they beautiful? One of God riches blessings…fresh food and neighbors.DSCN1889

I also tried to watercolor figs just to keep some people happy. hehe Hmmm! Enjoy your weekend..or what is left of it. It is the Lords day…rejoice.



Back to Watercolor

Some of my blogging friends are doing so darn well with this watercolor challenge it is kinda discouraging for me who hasn’t done much of this in so very long. Goodness…I haven’t even dared go to the link and see what the world is doing. So I just stay kinda safe and stick to my cards. There has been a jump out every day or so but … my age I’m just not very adventuresome. But I will share a couple of cards. I’m still trying to get to the point where I can ‘open’ a shop and sell I just have so many questions. Any way…my mother has abirthday coming up . She will be 94 if I dare say. Never have understood why women are so sensitive about their age. The alternitive is to not have an age for peats sake. This should count as watercolor I think.DSCN1886Well they are backwards but so goes it.


Instead of Watercolor

A few days ago over on SCS (splitcoaststampers) they were doing an embossing thing with chlorophyll. I thought it sounded like something from grade school and I was right.

Well sometime it works and sometimes it doesn’t but here is the results of my effort.DSCN1877
