A Sweet Treat!

Look at this cool stash of chenille bits & pieces that my mom picked up for me at a garage sale today. She was totally thinking "neck wraps". Some of the floral pieces would make adorable pillows. And, if I could quilt, I'm sure all of it together would make a schnazzy lil' blanket! But I don't quilt. So, there won't be a blanket. It pays to share your crafty projects, dreams & visions with others!

I'm so excited! I got a new solder gun/iron yesterday. (Crazy crafty chiks & their toys!) I hope this one works. It was in the mid price range, but I made sure that if it doesn't work that I can return it. I'm hoping to get rolling on my bottle cap rings! My buddy bellacolle has been giving me tips & pointers. I don't know if you remember my April blog posts about the whole "As Seen On TV" solder gun? Not fun.
I'm hoping to rip the packaging off tonight & get to it! I've been busy filling orders (yippee!!) so I've not been able to "play". Come tonight, I am totally gonna play, play, play!!!

The fam & I are going to the 14th annual Cool Desert Nights Car Parade tonight. We've gone the past 3 years, since we moved back to Richland from Arizona. It's just the most awesome fun of chillin' out in your beach chairs, eatin' something tasty, & watching really neat old cars drive by. They block off streets & everything! Some cars light up, some cars are very LOUD, some blow smoke & squeal their tires, but they are all unique & mostly really old. We always pick out our favorite car in the parade. Some of the people in the cars throw candy to the kidlets & my girls have a lot of fun. The first year we went I was 2 weeks from my due date with Pazely! I'm sure I was quite the roly-poly site! We always get a good spot in a park-ish area with grass & the girls can run around & play too. I'll try to get some fun & silly photos if I can to post tomorrow...

Happy Summer evening my friends! And by the way, thanks for visiting!
