Shout outs of some favs

Some of my favorites...

I was cruising this morning, like pretending I have lots of time to kill before the trip! I just can't help it, miss everyone, and trying to jump back in to my "other life" of reading blogs, I can still remember that! So, in playing for about an hour, I find this darling giveaway from Cat at Bell'Antico, aren't these the cutest little hearts. So, now that I'm starting to make a few hand sewn goodies, wouldn't this look darling in my new collection of sewing notions? Go see her beautiful blog if you get a chance.

I also stopped by Julie's blog at Praire Thistle, who's using French nudes in some work, (my fav), go check that out! Her piece is darling, with the little nude peeking through her piece!

Then there's another friend, Diane Cook, getting ready for her wonderful show coming up. Okay, I am a lucky girl to know so many talented ladies. Go see what she's up to at
Rosa & Josies, just darling pieces. If you ever wanted to know about the stone "jet" she wrote a beautiful definition. Really educational. Thanks Diane!

AND, another wonderful friend, Diana Frey, has been published yet again in Belle Armoire Jewelry!! Here's a peek at her article. If you haven't picked up you latest issue, you have missed this! And, I might add, we will be teaching some fun cuffs in October, and there is still room for you to join us!! Please do if you can, okay?

Okay, that's all of my favs I can post about right this second, but there are MANY more! I'll see you on the other end, when I'm in California. I'm off to my BIG reunion tomorrow, then on to the sunshine state, hopefully there's some sun, because it hasn't stopped raining here for days, and we're ready to blast. Maddie doesn't want to go potty in the rain. YIKES!
Take care all.

Aren't those peep show necklaces just the bomb. She is so dang clever!
These are all great. Wish that I could break away and learn a thing or two from you... I really want to know how to fuse things.

Have a great weekend!
Enjoy the day!

Diane said...

Now if it's the little Chi's no problem cuz they are pad trained BUT when the big girls won't we have a big problem brewing! :) Boy and this has been the wettest rainy season in recorded hist!! :(

You three have a great trip down and stay safe!

Thanks for all the share-zies! Have a wonderful weekend in my neck of the woods! Poor little Maddie... just like Albie they hate the rain. I dread it - we haven't had any for months but when it comes it's never fun to coax him and go out there with him!

Riki Schumacher said...

Hi all, I would answer each one of you personally, but the computer is getting shut off and the journey begins EARLY tomorrow morning. Wish me luck at the "_0th" reunion! YIKES. How did I get so old? That wasn't supposed to happen!! Hugs to you all. love ya, Riki

Cindy said...

Riki...I sure like this kind of post, where you fill us in on the happenings on your favorite blogs!
I hope you have a safe trip and a fantastic time at the reunion. I know how you feel about getting older, and wondering where the time went! It sure flies by when we're having fun!

slommler said...

All the artists that you shared have amazing pieces of art! Wow! Diana's earrings are fabulous!!
Have a safe trip!!

Suz said...

Talented friends you have, Lady!

Listen, our Harvey has the same problem. In fact, she sleeps in acrate in our room (this is our rescue dog) and she will come out and somehow feel the rain in her bones, then go back. I swear. We have gone back to taking her out on a leash, as she was outsmarting us. No coaxing. If getting the leash on her is hard. we keep it on her all the time. So far. So goot.
