More Destash and a New Piece

I am continuing my mad destash and have listed more beads and a bunch of other crafty items in my etsy supply shop,

On another note, I have been working away like a mad thing on some new pieces. I have been doing more and more of the Steampunk style pieces and am having so much fun doing them. Here is my newest piece, Come Fly With Me

I am so tempted to keep this one but I won't. Instead, I am making one just for me. It looks great on the doll though so I KNOW it will look great being worn.

I am also working on this month's challenge project for the etsy Steam Team. The theme this month is Blinded Me With Science. I am waiting for a couple of pieces I have ordered so that I can finish my entry. It will be a lot of fun when it is finished!

A Quiet Summer So Far

So far it has been an uneventful summer, she said, knowing that in saying that things were likely to change.

But it really has been quiet. I've been making new things and doing some really fun trading. We went and saw the balloons launch at the Summer Heat Air Festival this weekend. That was a lot of fun.

We have been lucky and haven't had the terrible weather that a lot of the midwest has been subjected to. We have had more rain than usual and some strong storms, but no flooding or tornadoes, no power outages and no damage. A storm came up Sunday evening out of nowhere. We had some heavy rain and some apparent straight line winds, but again, nothing worrisome. Immediately after the storm the sun was still setting in the west and when I walked outside I saw this beautiful sight
