A new friend

I have a new visitor to my garden. This little guy has decided to come to get at the peanuts in the bird feeder. Well, after all, who needs to climb trees to get nuts when you can just go to the supermarket. But this feeder is right outside my living room window so I get to photograph and sketch him to my heart's content and he is none the wiser. I suspect there is more than one who visits though so maybe this spring I will have a bevy of squirrely friends come to visit.

Beads, beads and more beads

Where is the time going? Mid-February already! I don't know about you but it just seems to be zooming past. However, I have managed to get a few more sets of beads made with more on the way. Here are some pictures of the most recent sets listed in Etsy, some in smaller, more affordable mini bags so you can have something original to add to your craft projects but in smaller quantities.

2 Cute!

2 Cute Rubber Stamps is hosting a Valentine's challenge at the moment. The idea is to use one of the wonderful 2 Cute images to make a Valentine's theme creation. I love the animal images and was recently the happy recipient of two free images. So I had to make two cards, both shown below. If you want to take part, and there is a lovely prize of a $15 give certificate for the 2 Cute Etsy store, just get yourself a 2 Cute image and give it a go. You can even use one of the freebie images on the 2 Cute blog.
