this year's crop and a ray of sunshine

You might remember back in June, after the baby moose and rabbit attacks, I had one remaining cauliflower plant. I didn't mention it back then, but I also had two tomato plants in those 'topsy turvy' planters on my front deck along with a single pepper plant. ( I had a fantasy of making a couple jars of my own salsa.) Wellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll....................  both tomato plants came down with blight.  They died. The pepper plant DID produce 1 pepper (so far).  It does have 4 blossoms on it currently but I don't know if there is enough time for them to fully grow before the weather turns. As for the single cauliflower plant, it was coming along slowly, due to the 32 straight days of rain we have had here in Alaska. ( This has been a record setting summer.  We have had the coolest and wettest summer ever recorded.  Someone even figured out that if you took all the rain we have had since Memorial Day and converted it to snow we would have 14 feet) Can we say …

my current addiction and other random stuff

My current addiction seems to be making pendants (see crappy picture below) Some with alcohol inks, but most with image transfer, I certainly haven't mastered it,

but I'm getting WAAAY better at it. (see crappy picture above) These still need their bails.

And when I go to make a necklace, even just a single one,
 I always seem to end up with this.
You see... I have yet to organize my beads. They are not organized by color or by size or by material. They are just perfectly random, and since I don't have the patience or time to organize right now, I have started trying to build more than one necklace at a time, sorta....
While I have my boxes of randomness spread out on the floor all around me, I kind of pick out what I want to go with each pendant.  Not necessarily the AMOUNTS  I will use, just the KIND I think I will use. I just toss a few of each kind in a little box with the pendant so when I get ready to string it I can just go straight to the stones I have already picked out ;~) So f…


the new love of my life ;~)
How could you not be totally in love with someone that is  THAT happy??
Sir Whitekeysis from Melodia.  He was born and raised in the Stringdom Region, but since receiving his knighthood, he has traveled the country attending all of the best parties.
In addition to being a knight, he is known all over the country, as the  Ambassador of Joy.
He's not a big fellow, but he certainly can command a room.
(He's also VERY shiny and difficult to photograph;~)
And a peek at my newest W.I.P.
Now that I see him again in the pic, I think he looks like he is a "Wip" What do you think?
PS: If I do any more this small, the nails will have to be cut back.
~Thought for the day~ Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance.
