....i can feel it in the air....

Yes FALL and it's just around the corner but before then .... my holidays are only a few days away. Lately I have been busy making the projects for Beading Babes. In my rush to join in I scrolled through projects and was very excited..hmm three projects by Sept 1 - no problem.  Well it's not three projects it's four and thank goodness the reveal date has been moved to Sept 16.  I went back to the site and realized I hadn't scrolled to the bottom of the projects. I am close to being done three of the projects and will start on the 4th this week sometime. I learned that soutache is way harder than it looks and requires a great deal of patience. Did I mention I am on holidays very soon!!!! We are spending three weeks on the west coast, visiting family and friends. I can't wait to go to Victoria and  visit with my sister. We don't get to see each other much so I just can't wait. My brother lives in Vancouver so I will be getting a double family fix to sustain me for a while. Below are a couple of photos I took in Victoria on my last visit. I love taking photos and then I love manipulating them into what look like a paintings.

The last BSBP reveal day has come and gone. I am working my way through the hop and I must say I am impressed with all I see. This was such a great adventure and I hope Lori will let me join in January again. I have joined the Holiday Bling Blog Hop and found out that my partner is Leanne Loftus from Pennsylvania. From our first introduction I can tell we are like minded artists and have already decided what we are going to do. Leanne does beautiful work, check out her blog and see for yourself.


  1. Victoria looks like a wonderful place to visit! How colorful. Lots of inspiration there. Have a great holiday!

  2. Wow, those are totally gorgeous! They truly do look like paintings. My son and his family live on Gabriola (one of the S. Gulf Islands) and I have been to Victoria many, many times. Murchie's Tea. *thumbsup* :-)

  3. Your pictures are great....they really do look like paintings.
