We have been busy running errands, walking, and making this year's travel plans, but not a whole lot going on to post about lately. We moved to the Conroe/Willis campground on Conroe Lake about two weeks ago. It is only a short walk to the lake from our site. We opted for a site with a field behind us for the cats. Being springtime, the cats are not getting out as much as they would like due to rain and mud.

Here are a few more photos of birds I took while we were staying in Columbus. The pecan trees were too tall for me to get as many shots that I would like of the different birds. We saw a few woodpeckers and some birds we could not identify. The Meadowlarks ran around the motorhome searching for food which caused our cats to go spastic.
On The Cutting Board
A repeat customer said she was interested in buying 10 snowmen towards the end of summer. I got excited at the challenge to come up with 10 original looking snowmen. I pulled out all kinds of scraps, dug through my tubs for different textures...and somehow most of them ended up with blue scarfs. Now, how did I do that? Hmmm?

Oh, and you are not miscounting. I made 12 instead of 10 so I could add the extras to my shop. I might add a couple of more so I can have a better variety of scarf colors. At least, one with a red scarf and another green scarf.
I have also been working on some more Happy Campers. In the past, customers have asked for a class-c shape, so I thought I might add one or two to the shop along with a motorhome shape. It'll depend on how well they sell if I will make more for the shop.
It hasn't been easy since I have so many ideas bouncing around. I started writing them down since I am afraid I will forget before I have a chance to start the new project. Now, if I can just remember where I put the list...I know it is here somewhere....
