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!!!
