When do I get the house?

This is what I just asked Ben in my half asleep state...long weekends are great, but they make going back harder.

But we did go see a wonderful house last week. It floats in my dreams as I pray it doesn't disappear like one. It is a small cape, last house on a dead end street where you can park and hike the mountain that it is on the side of, views across the valley, 1/2 acre of sunny undeveloped land abutting a farm, room to expand, character and uniqueness, and in our theoretical price range. All that stands between us and the house is 6 months of reserve funds (about $9,000) that we only have to keep until the closing. Interesting system. Easier than a 20% down payment, but still not just sitting around. So we are brainstorming and hoping and praying.

After seeing the house we went camping for 4 days. Very nice and much needed break. Only 2.5 more weeks of school! YES!!!

So much to post...SHIRTS

Last week I brought 14 3/4 length sleeve shirts embellished by us to the Artisan Gallery in Northampton and the owner of the store LOVED them. It was so exciting and uplifting. She tried one on and loved it. So here are some pictures of them before they went off to be loved by others and pictures of the beautiful tags that my mom helped me with.

Happy May Day!

This is the beautiful May Basket that my swap partner, Heidi, made for me! Flowers and lots of collage goodies! I was so excited. I've already used some of it. Everything was wrapped up in pretty little packages with beautiful tags, which were very inspiring. Thanks, Heidi! And many thanks to Kari for hosting!
