The topic at Inspire Me Thursday is CONTROL. When I think of CONTROL I think of how I can not CONTROL my pain, just as my 2 year old Madison can not CONTROL her fear of loud noises. She screamed the whole time she was on the tractor but immediately regained CONTROL when the ride was over. I have far gotten beyond screaming and crying about my pain from this THAT CONTROL?

SlOw PrOgReSs

It is taking me some time to finish all of my projects for the art show this weekend. I just worked for about 2 hours and the pain is excruciating. Here are the cards I made with my jewelry attached. I think they have turned out pretty good. First I sprayed the tags with a home made walnut ink. I then sewed pieces of fabric to them and attached the pins and earrings that I made. This is just a sampling of my stock.

HaLlOwEeN pArTy

Saturday we took Maddie to a Halloween Party at a friends house. She looked so cute in her little cheerleader outfit. She was the youngest on there and the girls didn't want to leave her out of the games so they did the "mummy wrap" on her too!! She was such a trooper!!

Pu-OoOoL jUmPiNg

Maddie just love to go pu-ool jumping with Jon. I found these cute "Froggie" boots for her to wear so that she still has "shoes" that are dry!!

We spent the weekend in West Virginia. Beautiful fall colors. The pictures don't show the real beauty but WOW it was spectacular. My daughter Madison got to see her first train up close. When it was coming up to the platform her eyes were as big as saucers. I had time to craft some jewelry which I will post pics of soon.

bLoGgInG wItHoUt ObLiGaTiOn

I like this gal's concept. Somehow makes me feel alot less......GuIlTy for not actually blogging, but instead, just playing with the space. LOL!! Here is the concept in a nutshell...for NuTs like mE!!

*Because you shouldn't have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill.
*Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine.
*Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing.
*Because sometimes less is more.
*Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog.
*Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone.
*Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be "bloggable".
*Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won't be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
