Getting ready for Summer
Life is starting to become a real balancing act! I am gearing up for Summer craft season. I sell at a Saturday market here in Missoula. I am going to also check in on a Sunday show that runs thru the summer, about an hour and a half north of here.
In the summer I get up at dawn and hike the mountain that is right out my back door. But, after a winter of not much exercise I start my Spring with yard work. I rack up the lawn and clean up my flower beds. I laugh because tending my yard is like trying to keep the forest in order. One side of my yard is a little hill with a deer path and rocks. When there are deer there is deer poop! Also, way to many rocks to use the lawn mower. So, I usually just yank up the weeds with my hands, after it rains. Once I have started using my muscles in the yard I am ready to hit the trails.
Anyway, back to market! Last week and part of this week I am working on stone necklaces to draw shoppers to my booth. Then it is time to sit down and see how many earrings I can create.
My Dad sent me his old copy of Photoshop. Last night I played around with the Turquoise necklace. I blurred the pic and then with the eraser tool went over the necklace to make it stand out.
Well, off to create!
