What I want to be when I grow up!

I am asked constantly what I do in the winter during my layoff or what I like to call  my "down time".

 I usually answer that by saying "I do stuff!"  

Some of the stuff  I am involved with right now is three on-line classes, one is learning to use a DSL camera manually, one is learning Adobe Photo Shop, & one is learning how to use a serger(my latest toy)

I also have three new photography books & two new books on serging. (Popster's lucky he gets to eat & have clean underwear!)

That leads me to what I want to be when I grow up.

I love fabric....I would love to design fabric!
I love any kind of crafts 
I want to design children's clothes....especially little girls! (This I call "American Picnic")
One little girl in particuler is going to be very excited about this latest project.

This dress I call "Cirque du Soleil" because that's what it make me think of
These "dresses" are so simple.....a $5.00 Target tee shirt & 3 different funky colors!


  1. Probably not a good sign that I had to Google what a serger is huh?
    Those dresses are gorgeous...when are you going to open a shop??

    1. Yeah...I should have clarified that or at least posted a picture!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val
