The wedding was fun & joyful & all the paper decorations we worked so hard on exceeded our expectations :) Of course the worst weather of the whole spring fell on the wedding day!! It was cold & rainy so there was no way they could get married under their tree, but the clouds cleared after the ceremony, enough to climb up & take some great pictures in it!! ....The whole ceremony & reception took place in the historic Albert Texas dancehall (near Luchenbach & just as gorgeous & a fraction of the price- it's the perfect venue & they were so wonderful to work with!) The wedding party literally danced down the isle to "Stuck On My Baby" by Anders Osborne --it was lovely! Here's a preview -I'll add more soon... Sending love out to all :)

Hi ya'll! Had such a lovely day yesterday :) Got to go see one of my very favorite musicians Sam Beam aka Iron and Wine.It was a small, short & sweet show at the KGSR station studio to promote his new album coming out next week. He sang 4 songs in all & visited with the audience abit. My favorite thing about seeing him was just what a super nice, normal guy he was --doesn't seem like sudden fame has made him at all pretentious ...more like he was just another guy in the room. Went with husband :) we had a great time, lovely day.(geez i look tired or something...) The show was filmed & should be up on kgsr soon -I'll post a link when it is. Here's my new fav from the new album:

the theme was "time travel" ....took me a while of stewing over it to figure out my own interpretation, that it didn't need to mean some odd sci-fi thing, which i don't think i could do. for me it meant simply thinking of a period of time i've always wanted to travel back to & try to capture a quiet piece of it... sorry i've forgotten to post this, so you can only vote till thursday morning... hope all is well out there --had lots of company lately, so it's been busy & then we got a flu bug, so been cleaning up after sicky kids, but they seem to be feeling better...

It is crisply cool (mmm, cold) in Texas ...some friends are camping right now at our favorite outdoor spot & it is supposed to get below 20 tonight! I'm glad we're just going for the day tomorrow & not trying to sleep out there! brrrrr!

I'm wanting to give my blog a little makeover but can't decide which way I want to go... so please pardon me while I figure it out. In the meantime here's some designs I've been playing at for fabric over at spoonflower. This first one is for the next contest, theme "candles". And the bears (which I'm kind of in love with!) evolved from that. I've discovered if I paint only the actual objects in the design & leave the background white, it's super easy to color only the background & make a seamless repeat...

I don't usually do things like this, but it's something that I feel is really important & I guess this petition needs more signatures pronto! You can hear more about it here ...he's doing an amazing job trying to get healthier food for the kiddos --enjoyed last season of his show so much & they're getting ready to film another one soon! ...So just thought I'd help in my own little way to spread the word...thanks ya'll!
