Hot & Humid

I guess most of us are hearing the same thing about the weather! Even all the animals that are usually in the yard, are in hiding someplace cool! The little squirrel still comes around to eat & then he's off again. I've been so busy trying to get some new things done for Fall & Christmas. I have been concentrating more on Halloween that anything else though. I love making witches & pumpkins! I need to get to switching gears though & start on some Santa's & snowmen. I have alot of new patterns for prim Santa's this year. Sometime I just don't know where to start. Some days I have to turn the TV off & put the Cd's on to get in the mood to get anything done. Don't forget to check out my new things on my website. Lots of new things to come too! Try & stay cool for the next week or so. I'll try to you get updates on my progress in the next week. Oh..a new venture on APJ. We are forming chapters in each state. This should be gobs of fun. I am the director of the St. Louis area, so if you're in the area, St. Louis or ILL, go to We meet once a month & will do crafting, lunches, antiquing, prim shopping, etc. You will meet lots of new people & have a blast! Our first get together is Aug. 21st & we are going to meet at The Festival Of The Little Hills in downtown St. Charles. Time & exact place TBA. We will be rotating where we meet, so each gal in my group will be planning the outings at some point. If you want more info, e-mail me at Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Prim Hugz,

Is It July Already?

OMG...I just can't believe it's already July. I also can't believe it's been so long since I've posted info! I've been super busy lately. It's way to hot to be outside, that's for sure! I've been sewing everything that doesn't move! I have sure gotton alot done though. I'm getting ready for a "Prim " craft show in Sept, so I'm trying to get as much Fall, Halloween & Christmas done before I go. I'm also having a "Christmas In July Sale" on my website. I have all snowmen 10% off until the 31st of July. So if you're in need of snowmen for this holiday season, better head on over to my website. Once they are gone, I probably won't have any more right away. APJ Community is also forming chapters in all U. S. states & I think some in Canada & other countries! This is going to be chapters that will get together once a month & go shopping for prims, antiques, do crafting, have lunches, etc. This is going to be a great time for anyone wanting to join a networking group! I am going to be the director of the St. Louis Chapter, so if you live in the St. Louis area & want more information, please contact me. I know we're all going to have a great time!
         I've been taking lots of pics this summer of the animals that have found their way into our yard. They are so much fun to watch. Baby squirrels, baby rabbits, all kinds of songbirds, turkeys, raccoons...yuck! Her are some pics. I will try & post more often in the future!

This little guy is just plain tuckered out!

I guess he's wondering why there isn't any food in the lid!

I think this dove is watching the squirrel!

Until next time, I hope you all have a wonderful & saft summer!
