Been having a little fun with the "gimp" program this evening while I was waiting for laundry to dry. "Gimp" is a free photo editing program that you can download. You can do almost as much with it as you can photoshop.
I took these pictures in my yard yesterday and then edited them in gimp. It's fun to play around with.

I was also flattered to get a message from Renee at Candy Stick Lane that she had chosen me to receive the Brillante Weblog award. Renee has some wonderful children's items at her site and Etsy store.
Here are a couple of my favorites.
I am very flattered and humbled to have been chosen for this.

And lastly a couple of pictures of the birthday gift I sent out this week to Amanda's son. I made it with fabric I received from Amy Jo a while back when she did a giveaway. An appliqued tee and a pair of lounge shorts. Amanda, I hope they aren't too terribly big, I wanted him to have room to grow and the next size down seemed small.
