Good morning Blog Friends,
All I can say is it is HOT!! The next three days are suppose to be record temps of over 100 here in the valley and then add the heat index on top of that. Whooeeee…..
I feel sorry for most of the people in my area, because they are mostly plant workers and there is no air conditioning in the actual plant were the machines are. My sweetie is a mechanic for one of these plants and has come home each day this week with heat exhaustion.
I hope all of you are staying cool and trying to beat this heat wave.
I’d like to send a big Thank you out to Willa from The Old Cupboard Door for the wonderful painted cutting board I received from her giveaway.
It’s absolutely gorgeous! Willa paints the most beautiful scenes. The detail in this painting is beautiful. My picture does it no justice!
Again, Thank you Willa! I love and cherish it!
Willa was telling me she may close her blog, due to her full time job and not having the time to paint and post. I told her she would be missed by all of us and that she could just post when she could~ so stop by Willa’s blog and encourage her to keep her blog open and post when she has the chance.
I know many bloggers have given up on blogging due to life happening or they feel they don’t receive many or no comments on there posts. I don’t know of any rule that says you have to post all the time or that commenting is a must. I love seeing what is happening in other parts of the world and don’t always have time to comment on blogs I follow. Especially if that blog has a lot of bells and whistles in it to upload. (My system is on dialup so it takes awhile to get things uploaded. Call it cheap but in this day of money crunching I need to pinch as many pennies as possible.) I just want to encourage all who have a blog and love to post “when they can” to do so and not feel as if that is just one more chore they have on there plate or that they have let anyone in blog land down for not posting. Just my feeling on the matter.
I took a short but much needed break from crafting these past few weeks, but I’m now starting on my fall crafting and getting back into the swing of things. I guess I was just burnt out~I’m sure a lot of you know what that’s like!
So, here we have some pics of what I’ve been working on this week. Nothing completed yet, but lots of orange, black and white parts! lol.
Hhhmmm, wonder what they will look like once put together?
Spent yesterday painting all these goodies, letting them dry out in the hot sun. It only took 5 to 10 minutes for them to completely dry!
Today I have lots of sanding and grunging to do ~ then putting them all together! That’s the fun part!
I’ll be sure to show the finished products once they’re completed.
Thank you for stopping by today and please stay cool and drink lots of water in this sweltering heat!!
Prim Blessings, Jean
