Hello, my friends! I hope you are having a beautiful day! I’m happy to tell you that after a very long drive (the last hour of which my bum ached like nobody’s business), hubbie and I and all the furry babies are back in San Jose safe and sound. Since our arrival, I’ve been able to get some weeding done and plant several iris bulbs – yellow and blue reblooming irises and a pretty trio of silver ones that will put on a single show come spring. The black petunias that I started from seed are thriving.
Like velvet. And I’ve also harvested some food that has been eaten already. This all grew in my absence, completely untended.
If you want to see more pix of the constantly evolving world of backyard inspiration, doggies, knitting adventures etc., hook up with me on instagram!
I am unpacking the studio and about to start work on some projects for CHA. If you haven’t been to my fb page, then this will be news to you – I am happy to announce that I will be attending CHA in Anaheim this January! Will I see you there? I’m registered mostly for the business sections that are offered, but I was able to squeeze in a few treats for my crafty soul – Tim Holtz and Karen Burniston workshops aww yeah boyeee!
OK. Enough of my news. On to my Hard Core Challenge results. Firstly, I want to thank the wonderful folks who participated, and tell you all that there was so much I loved about each project. I must confess that it was painfully difficult to choose one winner. So without further ado…
COME ON DOWN!
But wait wait! Keep reading! For those of you who participated but didn’t win, Core’dinations has something special to give to you, too! I am quoting from the Core’dinations blog:
