I joined a postcard swap, bloggers all over the world! I have never done this before so I was not sure what to expect. I have been receiving my postcards from other bloggers, I think I have about 7, 3 more to go. I sent mine out on Feb. 13th (in padded envelopes) because I added beads and shells and wanted to protect them. BIG MISTAKE as I had to fill out special forms at the post office for the ones that were going overseas. It was worth it though, I hope they all arrive in good condition. Here is a sample of what I sent.

Haunted Houses

Dan and I are going to be able to display and sell our Halloween Houses at a couple of different venues this year. Sunday, September 6th we are going to be at Mitchell Katz Winery in Pleasanton to help kick off their Harvest Fest. The winery is located at #1188 Vineyard Ave. Phone number is #925.931.0744. Then on Monday, September 7th we are going to be in Danville at the Heartland Danville Antiques and Art Faire. And coming up in October we are going to be at the LazyK gift house at Orchard Nursery in Lafayette for their Harvest Festival. Phone number is 925.284.4474.
We are looking forward to showing our Haunted Houses, especially to the children that attend, they always are so excited to see them and they make me remember how fun Halloween can really be!

Well, Dan and I put on our brave hats and took the kids camping. We went to Redwoods River Resort up by Leggitt in Humbolt County. It was a great campground, close to the Eel River and there was a swimming pool, flushy toilets and showers, a little store, game room for the kids and Saturday night they had an ice cream social. Dan and I were not feeling social, but the kids went and they all had a great time. We brought our 2 terriers with us(they have never been camping) so we had lots of barking and EVERYTHING stuck to Annie our little cairn, she was a piece of velcro. We went to the river and swam, the boys climbed a hill and swung out on a rope swing and jumped into the river, scared me half to death but they loved it! Lots of somemores and card playing, a good time was had by all!!

I love bright colors. Many of the pictures I make are very bright and wild. This picture of a sunset is a good example. The pinks and oranges make me smile! This sunset I own myself and it is hanging in my kitchen, so even when the day is gray I have this beauty to look at as I eat my breakfast. But alot of people go for the softer look and I enjoy that too, sometimes it suprises me how much. Colleen Moody got me started on the softer colors, and I find myself looking for old tattered lace, creamy colored trims and old pearl buttons. And rhinestones, rhinestones go with everything!!!
