This past week has been incredibly busy. I am the project manager for a wine & food festival in Washington DC that takes place in February...so we are in high gear right now with the planning and preparation! I also have a part time job walking dogs and just got two new regulars....I am thinking about starting a feature called "confessions of a dog walker". There always seems to be some funny tale to tell by the end of the week. Hopefully it won't be a feature overly filled with the various dogs' bathroom habits! It isn't the most glamorous job, but, gosh, some of these pups really FEED.MY.SOUL:

I am also taking an on-line workshop that I hope will invigorate many areas of my life.

I was pretty excited to see the new Margie & Me challenge posted on La Bella Joya! Those color palettes have been feeding my creative soul! I love both palettes. Currently my bead table is covered in beads for the palette inspired by this picture:

Which very much reminded me of a fun day from last summer when I was camping with my son's cub scout pack and we went kayaking down a lazy river in Delaware:

And had to negotiate fallen trees

and had an all around good time!

Happy 1/11/11....a day made for making wishes...so I hear!


  1. I would love to see pup pictures! That trip looked awesome. We went camping to the Deleware Gap last summer and loved it!

  2. Hi Amy. Love the picture of the pup. I am trying to stop by and say hi to fellow bloggers who are participating in Lori's Bead Soup. I can't wait to see what everyone will create with their Soup.


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
