My husband is the outdoorsy type. So in order for me to feel like a good wife I cave every once in awhile and we go canoeing or hiking. I always balk but in the end am so glad we went out and I got a chance to move my bones. The picture is from our “Old Rag” hike (I know…hateful name for a mountain) which is pretty much up hill for the first 4-5 miles. The beautiful view made it well worth the journey but then again I didn’t have a 42lb backpack otherwise known as the goose. If you travel out that way I would recommend visiting around the cute little town of Sperryville. There is a great place to have lunch and ice cream called the Abbey. I think I officially consumed any calories that were burned off during the hike.

Well with my first week back to school it can suffice to say that summer as I know it is over and as always… it is terribly bitter sweet. I miss my lazy summer days of hanging out with my family, sipping coffee in the morning and the luxury of just putzing around the house. So I thought I would reminisce and share a photo or two of our trip to the Outer Banks.
***Note for crafters*** While at the beach I must have a project and I love to make handmade critters for my daughter. I thought I would share a project from a lovely book "Sock and Glove" --check it out if you get a chance.

Etsy Front Page 9/1/09 Magillie

Well I have had a blog post on hold for awhile now and I haven't been able to post due to photo upload glitches. So to heck with that topic and lets talk about something else.

I feel like the etsy stars aligned for me yesterday. I had a bracelet get selected for fp. Plus...drum roll please - - - - - - - - - - - A treasury I created went Front Page! This is a first for me! Sadly, I had to hear about this second hand and not see it in person (darn job) but it still made my day and I was so happy for the artists. I think at least 3 had sales from this and I know there were lots of clicks and hearts. This was a treat! Check out the lovely items and make your wish list. As for me...I am getting my next etsy collection together with the nifty poster sketch tool.
