School is back in session...


Back to school happened so now I'm trying to get my life back to schedule. I have to admit, I was not ready for Summer to be over. Even though my house looks like a bomb exploded I quite enjoyed the weeks of lazy exploring and lounging with little to no schedule to follow. Also, I wasn't looking forward to hearing the alarm clock and having to pry my eyes open at 6:30 am... I'll never understand morning people.

My solution to this morning situation has been to treat myself to some new cross trainers and work out gear. I DO NOT work out. I don't even like to walk fast...the work out gear is to simply allow me to roll out of bed and pretty much still feel like I'm in my PJ's BUT still look somewhat decent for school drop off. Anyone who sees me will just think I'm heading to the gym instead of the couch to play bubble mania while I drink several cups of coffee and make a mental list of all the things I need to do, should do, might do...maybe later. Procrastination is an art form.








Oh yea, soccer is in full swing again too! At least the soccer peeps seem to feel my pain so games are mostly early afternoon on weekends :)

So now that I'm kinda, sorta getting back into the swing of things. I've got some cool new things I've been working on that I'll be sharing. More blogging will be going on and per usual you can find some daily musings over on my Instagram  to fill in the gaps :)

Soups on!...

Nothing like being down to the wire to really light a fire under my butt...deciding it was a good idea to try and figure out how to upload pics to my new MAC from my DSLR with only a few hours before the hop starts turned out to be way more painless than I was expecting :)

Ok onto the soup! My awesome partner for this BSBP was Sherri Stokey of Knot Just Macrame her work totally knocks my socks off, seriously go look for yourself, she's brilliant!


remember she sent me this? serious drool happened...


Sherri did her research well ;) I was spoiled with this fab owl ceramic owl pendant...I was stumped on what to do with it...still am. This definitely won't remain this way. The basics came together as far as wiring it up into a pendant with come faceted crystals and stones BUT I waited til the last minute and haven't gotten my sari silk in time. So I'll update this piece and share it again later...



the colors of my "soup" are just dreamy...Warm colors and wonderful textures...These earrings were the first thing I sat down and made. They came together instantly and without hesitation. 



This bracelet followed suit...an eclectic mix and that stunning copper toggle...



take a closer look at that toggle...the patina and texture is pure bliss...





With over 500 blogs to visit i'm ganna keep this short. I can't wait to see what everyone else created with their ingredients. My morning coffee and visiting everyones blogs to see their work will be how I'll be spending most morning for probably a couple of weeks :) 

Thanks for stopping by! You can view the full hop list HERE

and I'd also like to thank the amazing Lori for once again organizing another amazing BSBP with the assistance of some pretty fabulous helpers :) You all are so much appreciated!
