National Craft Month

Why aren't we celebrating and having a big gigantic party? March was National Craft Month, whatever that entails - I didn't actually research it. But, I am hoping it was good crafty artsy month for all of you! Today is National Clams on the Half Shell Day, Tater Day, and Oranges and Lemon Day. Sounds like dinner to me. These special days are good for planning menus after yesterday's National Hot Dog Day and tomorrow, among other things, is National Sourdough Bread Day. I'm getting hungry.

Aren't I always saying how behind I am? I still am. I need a National It's Okay to be Behind Day so I can take it off and go to the beach . . . and get further behind I guess.

Here I am - sitting in a hotel room (snoring husband "watching tv"). Checked in to see what you've been up to while I'm away . . . . and . . . . WOW, Marsha! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these new little fairy people!!!!!

Your work is always amazing, but there's something about these creations that different and very special. You've made my day and filled it with sunshine!!!! Awesome!

Love this one! Her bright fuschia skirt just screams at me! And her cute little bob hairdo is great.
Did you say you were BEHIND? Honey, that's my middle name! And of course what do I do with all my spare(?) time? Spend it on the computer. hehehe Oh well, what gets done, gets done and what doesn't... Obviously isn't that important!
Hugs to you!
