the haps

 well once again it is monday and the weather couldn't be more wonderful! why is it that when you have to work the weather is amazing? oh well, makes the ride to and from work soooo nice and not having to wear a scarf FINALLY is just so thrilling! eek, summer is here!!! yayayayayay!!! so many exciting things to come when the weather is nice, bike picnic dates, rides to the watering hole, tubing & camping...oh so much fun!

well the mister and i had such a wonderful weekend with the family. we always have such a great time when we see them and it is just so nice to get away sometimes and just relax!


the weather was great on friday, when we got up north we went straight to the grocery store to pick up some yummy grub and turkey burgers were made and devoured...so so yummy!

then us ladies got down to business....making clay skull beads!!!! oh and the little nugget helped too....isn't she just the most precious thing!?!? she hung on the mister and i all weekend and i can't complain at all...i love getting attention and giving attention to that little nugget! who wouldn't though, she is just way way too cute!!


kelly-anne aka tinytangerines makes adorable crocheted bows and uses the skulls for some of them..sorry, i have no pictures to show as they sold like hot cakes but i am sure she will have more up soon! yay! i on the other hand just love skulls and it was my chance to make some mexican inspired sugar skulls beads :D


i painted a few and i just LOVE how they turned out... although my back was a bit anger at me... i think they would make super cute earrings but not sure yet as they may be a bit too big but i will try them out and see....i will keep you posted...

speaking of posted, my new owldorable collection is up, in my shop! YAY!! since kelly-anne has such a great camera i took the opportunity and borrowed their camera for a bit, we really do need a better camera...one day...for now i just gotta work with what i got! ALSO... i am offering 20% off on all the clothing in the shop, sale ends july 1st!

did you have a fantastic weekend?

  10. Your niece is so precious!! She's like the cutest thing ever!
    I love the skulls, very cool! Makes me think of tequila and Mexican men hanging out in rough bars :) Maybe if they were smaller you could make them into necklaces or earrings?
