Monday Morning

I have been posting so much I guess I am in the habit. I spent the weekend cleaning up loose ends and then really cleaning the house. I am not much of a house cleaner. It usually gets done when I can't stand it anymore. The dust was getting to me. Right now the grain harvest is going on so if I don't have my windows closed its a mess. In fact I do get some of it even with my windows closed. Now that everything is clean I hope to get some weaving done.

I also want to get back to some collage. I want to do a little altoid shrine for my mom. I got the tin painted so now I want to look through photographs to find a good pic and see what else I can use to embellish that. I decided to start thinking about the things I got from her that she taught me that have served me well instead of the negative things she did or did not do. I figure the shrine is a start.

I signed up for 2 swaps too so I need to start thinking about them. The first is an ATC for your favorite movie. Of course it'll be LOTR and I have Calendar pics that I can use for that. I think its a 3 for 3 so maybe I will do a couple favorites. The other one is new, we will be using those little and big formica samples you get at Lowes. I got a few when Marianne was visiting. Now that we have a swap its time to use them. Check out what my friend Kai did with hers. I think it will be fun.

Then I just got into the beauty of the flowers and how gorgeous they are. I love sunflowers..
That must make it hard to keep your windows shut, we have pollen season here and everything gets coated in a fine dusting of yellow something..lol
My swiffer works overtime!!
