Close to your heart

Hope you are doing well=0) I have a few lockets to show you. I use to make a lot of lockets. I love that you can keep the ones you love close to your heart. 

La sirena.

 My daughter really loves mermaids. We talk about them all day long. Do they ever cut their hair? Or do they wear makeup and earrings. All very important things to a 3yr old=0)

The Geisha.
 I love her red lips. Can you believe there are only about 1-2,000 Geisha left?
Not many women want the life and restrictions placed upon the Geisha. It is very strict and requires a lot of study and hard work. 

The bee.
 She is coming in for a landing=0) This lavender is just what a bee loves!

The flower.
 I was inspired to paint from flowers in my garden. These flowers colors just POP. The red looks wonderful with all my boxwood.

Hope you are all having a great August. It's been very warm in San Diego, but so far most of my plants are surviving the crazy heat. We have been working in our veggie garden and our watermelons are growing! They look super cute right now. I'll post a picture of them next time. They are the size of apples right now. The kids are so excited about them. How big will they get? That is the question.

Kiss your peeps,

My other job.....
X-When can we go to Disneyland again?
Me-I think when you get your first break from school. It will be in October.
X-Do you think all the halloween decorations will be up?
Me-I hope so! I'm looking forward to eating those barbecue ribs and remember the guy singing with the  guitar?
X-He keeps singing about me and saying "I've been everywhere mannnnn."
Me-That song makes me laugh and how does he remember all those places?
X-It's call memorizing a song MAMA!!! I pretty much have to explain everything to you.

Soon enough

My lockets are ready to go! I thought I'd show you them because I didn't get around to pick up chain this weekend. What was I doing that I was not able to take care of this? Shutting down the tea shop! I had such a fun Sunday and knitting ran late...then tea. That kinda ran late too...ooops. Sorry 'bout that. I couldn't help it!!! I promise that soon enough I'll get down to that chain store(YOWZA). Well, I have got to do it by Wednesday...for sure. I promise...totally=0) totally=0)

So here are the Fall lockets. All shiny and dry with their top coating.

Kiss your peeps!

My other job.....
X-Why did you have to knit allllllllllllll day long?
Me-Oh...well...that was only in the morning and during lunch time.
X-Why did you just get home now then? You missed dinner.
Me- Oh...well...I went to tea with friends.
X-Okay, two different things in one day?
X-We went ice skating and the candy factory.
Me-That sounds fun. So, we all had fun=0)
X-Are you hungry? Since you only had tea for dinner.
Me-NO...they bring us so much food and so much tea. Small sandwiches/cakes/scones and different flavors of tea to try. So I'm super full.

Where have I been?
Hypnotized by the Olympics!!! I just loved watching so many events and I just couldn't miss the Fab5.
Did you get the Olympic fever? 

I have had a wonderful month!!! One of my favorite people on the planet told me something that made me squeal. It was just the most FAB5 words.
SAY WHA''''''?!!!!
So, I was inspired to make a quick sketch in my sketch book.

I have also been working on my Fall 2012 lockets. They are all dry and I'll be getting them all together this weekend. Okay...I hope I finish(*fingers crossed*). I'm knitting and going to high tea with girlfriends on you never know;oP
