And The WINNER Is...


I wrapped every one's name in a puppy treat and let Kota go crazy! The first treat he went after was the winner- and Kimmie was it. I am surprised he didn't eat the paper :0) I couldn't get a picture of him actually picking the winner, because it was so fast, but here he is sniffing the paper to make sure there isn't any treat left on it.

Kimmie- If you will go to my "view complete profile" you can find my email button there, and if you will email me your address, I will get all your goodies out to you!
From Letha AND Kota

Be Brave

Inspired by a quote attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt:
"Do one thing every day the scares you"

The Be Brave Project was started to encourage artists and to help them get out of that rut that we sometimes get ourselves into.

If you want to participate in The Be Brave Project click on the link below to check out all the information on the project.

So remember:

More Snow

The difference a day makes:
I am not sure I need to say much, I think a picture is worth a thousand words as they say, but it has not stopped snowing in the last 24 hours. We have had a few inches of accumulation, and it is staying cold.

The funny thing about this whole snowing thing- last week it was really warm... almost 80 degrees, I was out with my mom, and we were listening to the radio when a blizzard warning came on. It was the strangest thing. Then in the middle of it, they announced that it was a test warning for the county to prepare our cars, homes, schools and businesses for winter. I just thought it was interesting because I have lived in Cody for 20 years, and have only heard these warnings a couple of times. We have hard winters occasionally, but not regularly. I am thinking that this is going to be one of those years when winter comes early, fast, hard and sticks around for awhile. I guess we have been warned to be prepared.

UPDATE 10/12/08:
When it was all said and done we got 9" of snow! Now that is a lot of snow!!!

I think it may be WINTER!
It is definitely cold outside here in Cody, Wyoming. Yesterday it started to snow, and last night is just got COLD. It stayed cold all night and has been snowing all day. It is not snowing hard mind you, but it is still snowing. It is so hard to tell in Wyoming if it is going to be 20 degrees in October or if it is going to be 75. The weather is just so unpredictable.

I went out just before lunch and took this picture of the our back yard. The sun is trying so hard to shine, but it is just SO cloudy that it can't peek through. You can see the neighbor's tree is blowing in the wind. That wind is just plain Nippy!

I actually wore socks today!- Now that is saying something, 'cause I absolutely Hate socks.

(I still have some of the same pairs of socks that I had from when I was in High school, because they aren't worn out - and that was - oh my - almost 20 years ago.)
I guess it is time to curl up with a blanket and a cup of hot chocolate and watch a great movie!

Slowly Getting There

I have been working on getting my Paper Traders Round Robin Journal ready to go out for more than a month now, and it just has not been coming together as I had planned, but that is just how things work for me. When I am down to the wire, and I don't have enough time for the paint to dry, then that is when my muse shows up, and it all falls into place.
My Round Robin book is titled:

Monochromatic Me

The gist of it is for each person to create a two page spread in a color scheme that best describes who they are, or that they best relate to. If they don't FEEL a specific color, then to pick their favorite color or to just go to the paint store and grab a paint chip and design a page around that paint chip. It should be interesting to see what colors show up!

I have my cover finished and I finished my sample pages today-whew!

(I am green- and Chunky- tee-hee)

I love green, I always have, and I absolutely love, love, love a ton of junky, chunky stuff all over my pages. The more junk and ribbons the better. I seriously don't think you can have too much. I hope that everyone working in my book will enjoy junking it up as much as I have.
(If you click on the picture above which is the left page or the picture below which is the right page, it will get bigger and you can see the detail much better)
