Really like how the roof turned out. Still working on the peak.

My husband built me this awesome purple shed in Mississippi. I miss it every day. Katrina did not take her or the house but it was all under 24 ft of water. We chose to relocate back to Missouri. Since I could not bring it with me I decided to paint it. Worked on the sketch all day yesterday and had a few minutes this morning to put a bit of color on it.

Went a little crazy last night and wired up this chime. Love the natural birdhouses, added chimes to each house. Then used a bunch of fishing tackle I found at a sale one day to wire them together. Perfect lengths. Blackened all the metals to make it a little more cohesive.

Had a great time with this project. With John's help we turned my Beatles chimes into something special. I have been collecting pieces for this project since the storm. I found some parts of my Beatles chime but it was mangled.
I came up with the design and he made it happen. Drilled holes and screwed the whole thing together. I added the crystals and beads. Found the chain at my local bead store, it was EXpensive. But, it is all in the details. Right? Not sure if it still plays Hey Jude but it sounds pretty too. Double click on the pictures for detail.

I discovered that my Hobby Lobby moved to a bigger site! It is a really nice store. I got this clear stamp binder and all the inserts for only $20 bucks. What a deal. Thought I had bought extra pages but I filled the whole thing up. Used the stamps inside to do the journal page and to decorate the outside.
My cousin sent me an awesome link to Adele so I listened to her while doing this page.
