I'm seeing stars and sheep and crows!!!

Hi everybody!! I hope everyone has been enjoying the summer ~ it's almost back to school time (I can't believe it!!) Code starts school next Wednesday so we have 8 more days of sleeping in before we have to get back in the swing of things.  I'll admit I'm sad & a little happy both to see the summer end.  I LOVE the fall ~it's my favorite time of the year~ but I will miss spending the day with Code.  Oh, well!! It'll be Christmas break before we know it!! lol

Anyways ~ I've been busy trying to get a few things together for a last minute craft show my sis Angie signed up for.  She's been nice enough to let me put my stuff in her booth so I've been trying to actually get some stuff done :O).  Here's part of what I've gotten done so far:

crows on old chair legs & posts (I'm a lil obsessed with crows & sheep @ the moment~lol)

a sheep on a post :O)

star wall hanging

sorry for the bad pic ~ this is still dryin in the garage -i was "inspired" by lynn @ painting thyme needfuls ~ she used her pineapple bowl & painted it red/white/blue & put it on a board ~ well mine was already yellow & I liked it so I made this sign :O)

plain black crow to hang on your wall or door

another sheep ~ he's not on a post yet ~ think he might just get a hanger instead :)

And of course I've been making some salt dough :O)
I've been making bowl fillers & trying some new hanging ones too


faux "blackened beeswax" crow

hanging sheep

Well I'm off here to finish up my batch of salt dough so I can paint them tomorrow.  I hope everyone has a beautiful week!!

Hi Rachel:) Ahh, your lil man has to go to school so he can learn everything and come home and tell mom all about it. Or does he come home with 20 questions? LOL.
Wonderful prim crafts for the show.

I hate to see summer end as well. I prefer the warmer tempatures.

Great crafts for your show.

Rachel, Looks like you have been really busy also. Love all the items you have created but the pineapple board is my favorite. Just love it. Hope you and Angie have a huge spot rented to set up. That's gonna be one more full booth. Wishing you a great show. Would LOVE to be there to shop. Great items.

Love all the creations you made especially the sheep with the blue star. I'm sure you and Angie will do great at the show. You both have some nice prim items. You should call your booth "The Busy Bees'.
Good luck
Country at heart
