40th Birthday & a Vacation

Monday, August 10, 2009

Saturday was a fantastic day (& I really don’t say that too often, weekends aren’t usually my favorite – all that unscheduled time stresses me out.)  I spent the day with my girls at an art festival in town volunteering for the local Main Street Program.  I helped out at the Smear Art booth – where everyone was encouraged to add a touch to an original drawing by artist Diane Ryan.  Finger painting. Here’s how the picture looked at the start of the morning:
Finger Smear Art I
A rendition of Goffstown's unique landmark, the Popcorn Stand. 
And by the end of the day:
Finger Smear Art II
Just a few more pictures from the event at Flickr.

In the evening, my husband and friends joined us for an amazing dinner; everything was perfect and the dessert, to die for.  

Now I’m taking off for a vacation, and I’ll be back here in a few weeks.  I was worried about losing readers, was obsessing about creating some posts to have up while I was away… and I was getting miserable.  So – I’m not doing it.  Want to see a picture of the bag I crocheted?  It’s at flickr.  Or see what other projects I have on the needles? Those are at ravelry.  When I get back, or while I’m away, if I get a good photo, I’ll put it up here to share.

Why do I blog?  To meet other amazing people like Suzanne at Threepeats!  She included one of my cuff bracelets in a recent collection at her blog, the post titled Tout Ensemble!  

Will you just look at the things she makes?  I love that she reassembles vintage pieces into something new – nobody else will ever have one just like it!

 If you’ve subscribed via email, or see my posts in a reader, then you’ll know when I return and start posting again.  I just don’t want this to be stressful.  I use this blog to connect with like-minded folks and as soon as I think of it as a “job” to do, I freeze up, it’s no fun and I’m not going to let that happen!  For the rest of you, come back at the end of August!
