My husband puts a lot of effort into his decorating. Last night he was up VERY late putting all the new things on the outside tree on our porch. I swear he could make some dough doing this because he LOVES doing it. He says he doesn't but I do not believe it.

I forgot to mention that I have a favorite in my favorites that I use all the time. It is a wonderful site that I go to when I want beautiful tags. I made this tag for my little pink tree with a picture of "Alice", a beautiful olde time girl with a large hat! You can download FREE pictures for all your needs. Karen has something new every day and is providing a grand service to us all! Try it out!

So the car is packed and ready to go. Getting items packed and marked correctly is the hardest part when preparing for a show. Then, you have to think about your display pieces. Will I need extra tables, props? How about table covers? Which ones will make the items stand out, dark or white? I usually choose white. A chair.....last thing I think about! Then, half way through the show I say "Boy, my feet hurt". I will take a chair this time but I really hate to take up the room and I also hate to look like a slacker. Hard to tell what the customer base will be...usually, the only way to look at it is....if they like it, they will buy it. But, in this current economy, no telling. Oh well, it will be a fun adventure! Good way to pass out business cards and meet people. I will take some pictures if I do not forget! Oh, I almost forgot......A very nice co-blogger put in a little blurb for my market bags in her blog. If I do this right, you should be able to see the link for starrydeborah.etsy.com!

Every year my husband decorates our home to the hilt. You can find him outside making changes at all hours of the night. Here are some photos of his expertise in making our home stand out in the neighborhood. He does not, however, do anything spooky to scare the kids. Hmmmm, well we have an upstairs room that has ghosts flying around . Very neat but not that scary.
Now, how did that pig get in the picture?
Ok, so now I finished my quilt top. I was planning on putting this quilt in the Folsom Quilt Show 2010 but someone saw it and it might not make it to the show! What fun creating with all the bright colors! My pictures do not do them justice.

Do you think I like color! It is so amazing how someone that loves shabby cottage chic and the pastels involved also loves bright fabrics. I guess that is what keeps things from getting monotonous! I am going to attend the Pacific International Quilt Festival this weekend and will probably come back with probably more inspiration than I can handle.

I just got back from my yearly quilt retreat at Zephyr Cove which is at Lake Tahoe. Too beautiful to capture! We had sunsets like this every night. It is always sad to know another year has passed but we will go back next September. It is always so inspirational to be with other creative people. A lot is gained through friendship and sharing and I always come home refreshed and inspired to forge ahead in my creative endeavors as everyone is so supportive of each other. This is probably one of the most beautiful places on earth.
