i'm in a bit of a jewelry rut, but i bought a bunch of great beads when i was in texas, so i'm hoping for them to inspire me soon.... until then, here's the only newly designed bracelet i've made in months!

i happily got around to make this awesome, unique skirt that i'm in love with.  i shamelessly made mine the exact color of the tutorial and by accident ended up with the exact trim!  i went to the store to get some trim and looked around and picked this one, then got home and looked at the tutorial and realized it was exactly the same.  i guess it had subconsciously burned itself into my mind's eye.  but i love it and you can find the tutorial here.

here's the original:

and my not so unique interpretation:

not bad, eh?

my strong and very kind husband dug a hole in the rocks of our new backyard so i could start my fall and winter garden on time!  i wanted to start small and decided i may add on another box of the same size if this one goes well, but i'm trying not to get ahead of myself.  last weekend i planted my herbs and some seeds for different lettuces.  i have arugula sprouts!   i've been watering the heck out of this little plot of earth, so hopefully it will reward me!

 i feel so behind on my whole life right now, and i realized how long it has been since i posted a thing on here and i miss it...  it's not that i haven't been doing anything, i've just been doing too much, i think!
i had fall break at the beginning of the month and was in texas for a month visiting paul's parents and his little sister, daisy (she's the one on the leash).  here are some pictures paul's mom sent us from our little trek to the river.  that was a beautiful day and we sat outside for lunch and ate this crazy jalepeno summer sausage with jalepeno jack cheese on jalepeno cheese bread.  holy jalepenos, that was a good combo.
