Hey everyone, I hope that you are all doing well. Mother Nature is still up to her old tricks and trying to get everyone sick with colds and allergies. But I think we will all prevail (in the overbearing heat of the summer!!).
Well, onto something non-allergic. Inchies! This week over at Every Inchie Monday the world tour stops at Kenya. While looking into Kenya I found out that Kenya is the place where Scientist believe that the earliest known human fossils were found! How cool is that! So I decided to make a skull on top of the Kenya flag. The red eyes are kinda ominous!
Also this last week I joined Yes.fit and joined a race! I have been waiting to do that for a while now. Ever since one of the Inchie bloggers, Penstrokes by Cathy posted about joining Yes.fit and winning 2 races, I have wanted to join. So I finally did that last Thursday. I joined Shake your tail feathers. It is 78.5 miles and the award looks like a Peacock. I am pretty excited about it. Thanks Cathy for introducing me to this awesome site. I have even gotten the nurse at work to look into doing a corporate event for us at work. I will keep everyone up-to date on this race.
I also did alot of beading this weekend. I finished my family charms. Something that I have been wanting to do for a long time. Each charm represents someone in my family. Liverpool bird is for my son, the black cat is for my daughter. Chicago Cubs is my brother Toms. The Navy anchor is my dad. The motorcycle is for my late husband. The 4 feathers is mine. The camera is my sisters. The cardinal is for my Mom, and the boat is for my brother. But to be fair I am planning on redoing his to be more like the boat that he was a captain of instead of a sailboat.
I designed all of these charms except for the motorcycle and the cardinal (I don't know who designed the cardinal, if anyone does please let me know so I can correct this, thanks). I really love these. I will work on the new tug boat this week and hope to have it next weekend.
That is it for me this week. Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great work over there and join the world tour! Until next week, have a blessed and creative week my friends.
