Happy Monday - My Sweets :0)

Thank goodness! My hula hoop is making my waist sore & hopefully, smaller :) So, my best friend from high school & her Mom came up for the weekend. I bid them farewell this morning @ the airport. We had a great time:Here we are, standing in front of "Triple Falls" in Dupont State Forest

I hope you have all been doing good! I don't have any other house guests arriving until September 10th, so I'm getting ready to crank out a bunch of new stuff & get ready for the "Mountain Song Festival". I'll have my tent set up on Saturday, the 12th ~ come see me if you live in this area! Happy Monday everybody!
♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

Peace & Love - 40th Anniversary of Woodstock & A Poll!

Hey Everybody!!! Can you believe this weekend is the 40th Anniversary of "Woodstock"! One of my little bracelets made the cover of this collage for the blog post on the "Peace and Love" 1,000 Markets Marketplace! I LOVE 1,000 Markets! If you haven't visited the site already, please do ~ it's really awesome! And, I love the fact that it's not full of "junk" like Etsy is starting to be. Etsy is getting to be more and more like E-Bay, which sucks!!! Most of the things I've seen on there lately are NOT handmade ~ just a bunch of garage sale crap, if you ask me. Let's do a poll and find out what you think. The Poll is posted on the upper left hand side of my blog ~ please take it when you get a second ~ Thanks!

So, the winner of the $20 Gift Certificate is {insert drumroll here} Jen!!!!!! Yay!!! Lita ran off with your name, but by process of elemination, I figured out it was you! Congratulations!!! Have fun shopping with your $$

Whew ~ some more house guests left about an hour ago and now I'm going to sit @ my desk all day and make some new stuff! I hope everybody has a wonderful weekend! Don't forget to take the poll!!!
♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

"Life is what we are alive to. It is not length but breadth. To be alive only to appetite, pleasure, pride, money-making, and not to goodness, kindness, purity, love, history, poetry, music, flowers, stars and eternal hope is to be all but dead." ~ Maltbie D. Babock
