JUNE- IT's too SOON!

Hey- Y'all! Sorry its been so long in posting- Its been since March! 
Why does time have to fly so fast... 
I've been a busy, busy Girl! to say the least!!!

I've posted a few pics of each event I've been able to do in the last 3 months, starting with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation- Banquet-
It was the first time I set up my art and jewelry up for a large booth- I absolutely loved how it turned out! Sadly I had 2 small sales... the advertising was very limited. Lesson learned-
I took away some very valuable lessons.  I did take away some very nice pics of the booth.

As you can see the sign I made turned out AWEsOME!!!

I made a very cool mixed media antler piece.
It hangs over my desk in my office at work. <3
very pretty!

The Defiant Diva Fashion Show was a great success! 
Will definitely do it again!!!

The Defiant Diva now has some of my custom 
Upcycled Belt Bracelets in their shop

we made our own Rubber Stamps!
Can't wait to make some more when time allows!

I was invited to teach a painting class
and a jewelry making class for Springfield Cabelas-
Ladies Day Out event- 
We had a great time - and created some great art!
Both classes were a big hit. :)

I got this made for my new ride :)
-still kicking around the idea to paint my
logo on the back window....hmmmmm.

Lot's of room for my class tools- or for an event!

These amazing artists - accepted my offer to teach them 
how to paint a really great painting for the birthday girl
that hosted the party at her home. Thank you Megan!!!

Lastly, I am getting ready for a Beautiful Vintage Fair!
hosted by Sweet Salvage
money raised for the raffle - entrance fee
will go towards the Walterville Grange's New roof!

Some of the upcycled jewelry I've been

I will post a full update on my blog - once I recover!!! ;0)

Next weekend on June 10th our Son Graduates
High School! WOW!!!! 
and my Mother is getting Married-
with our son's graduation party finishing up the saturday evening!!

Say a prayer - these next few weekends go smoothly.
with all the prep work I've been doing.. 

So much has been going on... I've neglected this site.
Sadly, we lost our old girl Precious in April, 
We adopted her in November 2008, when she was 9

She was so Sweet, everything I ever needed in a dog.

My art studio buddy.

She took a few years to warm up to Cuddling,

sharing space on the sofa... 
then I was demoted to the other end...

She was just.... amazing.
She would have been 18 years old in October.
She had lost alot of weigh.. and her body was tired.
So it was time.
We took her to a special spot... Duane and I.
As we pulled off the road.. 3 does were bedded down in the meadow.. we laid her to rest in.

I've had the grief locked in my heart for these 
last few months..I just didn't want to feel it.
Losing a dear friend was very hard.
She's not hurting anymore... 
she's with her original owner...
she was only our's for a short time.

Rest easy old girl. 
Thank you for coming 
into our lives.
Watching over us. and sneaking all 
the cookies over the years.

Duane's MS has been rearing its ugly head in the last few weeks. We are holding on and hanging in there.. as of today we are waiting on the results on the MRI's he had done last week. stay tuned... 

Summer is here... and life goes on even when 
we don't want it to....
I hope to have some slow time soon... sigh!......

Thank you for stopping by... reading my blog...
