Twin tutorial

Not Twins
Shall we call them twins by choice?
Not Twins either

Maybe you've been wondering...

Where have I gone?!?
I've gone Rogue!
I've hooked up with a band of Bandits.
We roam the snowy countryside looking for hay piles and chocolate vampire lips to eat. It's true.

Elko hats and Hayin

After so much anticipation, Tracy and I finally got our new hats!!! Many thanks to Dave at Wolf's Hattery in Spokane WA for ordering and shaping them for us. The style is called Elko, in case anyone wants to rush out and get one too!

The Priest River hayin crew L to R: Mike, Cindy, Tracy, Me, and Arthur. We did some serious work!
Pretty view in the background, isnt it?

OMG, I almost forgot- went to an Artist Trading Card trade on Wednesday night! The bottom six cards are the ones I made for the Palouse theme. The top three were for last months theme, Summer.

Sunset and Seedhouse

One of many beautiful sunsets on the Palouse. Harvest time seems to magnify the vivid colors of dusk.

Seed house in St John. Wish I could take the sign down and hang it at my the texture!

"What's the deal with no blog posts?" she asks

I'm driving along, talking to my mom, and she exclaims "Oh! And what's the deal with no blog posts??"
"Uh, I'm busy?"
But it's true, I've been a busy gal! So here's a little post to placate you. Ok? Feel better? I do!

First star I see tonight

Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
