Hi there folks!
I have a great bit of news to share with you today! I will have a guest design spot with Donna Salazar Designs later this year! The announcement went up at her blog today and I’m quite excited to collaborate with the very talented group of women she has brought together. Hop on over there and show some love for all the guest designers lined up – if you are a crafty enthusiast, you will recognize their names! Woot woot! My hot glue loves my Donna Salazar Mix’d Media Inx! That stuff goes on like butter!
In other crafty news, tomorrow I will have an art journaling page to share with you. Would ya’ like a sneak?
And in the gardening department, I have a few pix to share of what’s been going on with the seed-starting. These petunias are actually much bigger now and all in the ground. Critters have gotten a few of them 😦
A few other heirloom seedlings are on their way to me, so I think we are going to have tons to give away. My Rosa Bianca eggplants are still small like this. Probably waiting for the hot heat to blossom.
A pair of doves is nesting in our backyard and that just warms my soul. I tell you, once I pick up the gardening books, magazines, and catalogs, my appetite for information of the horticultural sort grows exponentially. Yesterday, I made a big decision to put some berries in the ground, too, and see if they like it here. Blueberries might not like our zone. But worth a try because really, what could be better than homegrown, chemical-free berries minus the ridiculous price tag? It’s now time to acidify the soil where they will live and grow. You may see some berry paintings in the Etsy shoppe this summer!
I’ve got a whole new batch of seeds that are just now popping out of their casings. Several Portuguese cabbages called “Beiron Tronchuda,” supposedly the sweetest of them all, salmon colored and lime green colored zinnias, and a whole tray of baby’s breath aw yeahhh! Our kitchen windows are perfect for bringing these babies to life! Shortly, I will tackle the subject of grafting fruit trees, and by next year we are gonna have ourselves an orchard over here! Or as my mother would say, “Obah heeeeah!”
Today I will hand off some lovingly nurtured tomato and eggplant to my friend, Gwen. And we have a date to do some much needed craft shopping at good old Hobby Lobby! So thankful Gwen helps me not be a hermit!
See y’all tomorrow!
