Big Brother tonight....

I can`t wait to see who goes home. I heard tonight is a double eviction so I`m hoping it`s Michelle and Ollie. I have a soft spot for Jerry again after seeing him cry and hear that his wife has parkinsons :(

Memphis will have to watch out for Renny because she`s going to go after him soon!

Have I missed this years twist? Each year they have one and I don`t think I saw one yet this year besides Dan being America`s player for a week.

Who would you all like to see in the final two? Me I think Memphis and Dan.

I`ve been awarded by two great gals.....

It`s monday again already?

Wow I feel like I just said that yesterday! I just recapped myself with Big Brother as I missed it last night. Thank heavens for being able to get it off the computer! Looks like things are getting awfully vicious in there...LOL Ok as of now I`m not to fond of Jerry at all. Funny how your opinion can shift inside of a 2 week period.

Michelle winning HOH was the last thing Keesha and Libra would have wanted and seems like they will suffer the wrath now, but I do think they will vote Libra over Keesha. I can`t wait until tomorrow night to see who wins POV. I think Ollie may skate by under the radar the entire game even with his connection to April.

Ok enough about that. I did manage to get 2 new dollies listed on ebay. One is another moon nodder being I enjoy making them so much and the other Gwendella the pumpkin girl.

Well it`s going to be a busy week ahead, but I`m hoping to get more sewing in!

Mackenzie`s first paper clay art...

She was so excited this morning to get started on these 2 pumpkins. She knew once she awoke they`d be dried and ready for some color. I have to say she did a good job on them and she is so excited about listing them on ebay....LOL.

It`s nice to see her so enthusiastic about something. She`s already coming up with ideas of things to make next..LOL

I think it`s wonderful when children get excited about art! I will do anything I can to encourage her to keep at the clay because the more she does the better her pieces will become.

Heres her very two first pumpkins:

Look at what my Mackenzie did today!

I finally decided it was time for me to take out my paper clay that I have been procrastinating with. Being it`s a medium I`ve never dabbled in I kept putting it off. Well today I decided I was going to make a pumpkin carved out for a battery operated tea~light. Next thing you know here comes my 9 year old daughter Mackenzie with her air dry clay and sat across from me at the table.

I must say I was shocked hers came out way smoother then mine I was beside myself. She carved lines in it for a puimpkin gave it a stem and I added a rusty wire for it so once fully dried and painted she may add a hand stamped banner reading Happy Harvest.
Well I was so excited and proud of her! So she`s says to me "can I sell it on ebay?" and I say sure! She`s so excited she can hardly wait to be able to paint it and give it life.

While that was drying her and I did a combined project of a pumpkin head wearing a witches hat. He looks pretty cool can`t wait until he`s given color.
This was alot of fun and I look forward to one day doing this over the cloth dolls. In time I guess.
Here she is in progress...LOL

Mondays here again!

Another week beginning again. They seem to just pass by faster and faster. I can`t believe the kids are down to their last month of summer vacation already and I haven`t even done everything I wanted to yet.

Well what did you all think about Big Brother last night? I couldn`t believe that Jesse couldn`t hang in there. All that tough guy talk and look where it landed him..LOL Although I will say I felt bad for him when he started to cry.
Renny did awesome and well April....BRAVO! I was so excited to see her win, but it looks like Keesha may need to be a bit careful.

I can`t wait until the next episode :)

Well as for my dollies there have been 2 more added tomy ebay>
Here is one more Harvest moon nodder:

and meet Tabitha she`s on her way to the Masquerade ball:

Well I must be off to tackle my errands for the day. I already behind on time. Have a great week everyone!
