Ashley's Girl Finished

This little gal is finished and ready to go to her new home.

I'll be making some changes to my custom orders to allow some more specific choices for you all, so I will be taking the 16 inch custom listing down from my shop for a bit. Hopefully I will have the changes ready by later today or tomorrow.

Weird Weekend...not too much accomplished...

We had some nasty weather roll thru here Friday, as many of you probably heard from the news.  We lost power and we had lots of trees and debris all over the place.  Our street was covered with branches and pieces of trees.  We weathered it fine, our neighbor across the street had his whole front yard of trees crash into the front of his house.  Nasty mess.  Some huge old trees were knocked down all over the neighborhood.  

The power came back on in the wee hours of the morning and the internet was sketchy at best all weekend.  It appears as though things are back to normal for us.  I included a picture of our neighbor's front yard. 

Lots of cleanup to do...still...

I was able to get some work finished on this little custom gal.  Her wings are attached and her ladybug "tattoos" are all finished :o)  Her blouse is done and I am working on her flower skirt today.  The last thing will be her hair.  She looks great so far...I should have more pics of her later today.

A Little Bit of Nature :o)

This first photo is from last year, this time.  This little mama turtle was in our back yard digging a hole to lay her eggs for about four hours.  My oldest daughter and I sat on our deck and watched her dig away for the whole time.  

When she finished, she ended up burying three eggs.  

We spent the next few weeks watching the spot and counting the days.  One morning we awoke and there was a hole where the mound was and the only thing left inside were the soft remains of the egg shells...we didn't get to see it, but our babies had hatched.  

This year we have had several sightings of the babes in our yard.  We saw this little guy yesterday.  I remembered this time to get the camera so here he (or she) is.  One of our baby turtles :o)

She turned out adorable...though not even close to being as absolutely adorable as the original little gal she is modeled after :o)

Our Day at the Renfaire

We went to the Tennessee Renfaire this year.  It was our first year at this one, we usually go the the Texas Renfaire by Houston (We'll still be going to that one too)

Anyway, I thought I would post some images for you all to see...

Brenna's costume was made by a wonderful friend of ours...thanks so much Amy :o)...she did such an awesome job, as you can see by the pic here.  Brenna's dress was stunning :o)

Connor sitting and playing with his favorite thing ever...a wooden crossbow

Hunter has one too :o)

Me and my hubby :o)  

Aren't these three adorable?  Their dresses were made by a fellow Etsyan, Celtic Rose Designs  

The whole gang :o)  We had fun.
