Can you tell what it is?

like a cabin in the woods

The husband and I went for a walk in the woods this afternoon. Gorgeous day. This song pretty much sums it up:

Toy Drop

Have you heard of The Toy Society yet? It's a fun little group where you create a handmade toy and leave it somewhere for a stranger to find. It started in Australia, but now there are crafters all over the world joining in.

A couple years have passed since I made a drop, so I decided to take it up again. I sewed this little monster recently and have been waiting for the right time to drop him off somewhere. When I was out at the lake on Thursday I figured that would be a good spot to leave him. My monster is kinda sad and lonely looking so hopefully he has found a new home with a loving little kid.

Morning on the Lake

It was so beautiful out yesterday that I decided to spend some time at the lake. I had brunch with some geese, took pics for Project MCP and just enjoyed the peaceful morning.

These are a few pics I took for Project MCP. The theme for the first challenge was "high vantage point".

Spring is in full swing here in the south. 80 degrees in March - yes please!

I made a few necklaces last week. I got the idea for the first one from a tutorial over at Suddenly Found.

The next is a necklace fail. I wanted to do something asymmetrical. In the pic on the left the necklace looks alright, but once I put it on it just looks goofy. Oh well.

I thought I'd try an asymmetrical one again. I strung twisting spacer beads with just a few crystals to the side. More of a subtle look which I think came out much better.
