Hello! This week has been so busy and frustrating. I started making art Tuesday evening and the rhythm just flew! It was perfect ... UNTIL … My antivirus program expired on Wednesday. I went to Best Buy and picked up a great program that was on a great sale. Happy with my score, I brought it home and put it in my computer only to see my DVD player died!!! SO! I took out the laptop. It uploaded the program just fine. So, I went back to the dinosaur I call a computer (it’s nearly 11 years old) and tried to get the DVR working. It wouldn’t work either! OKAY! SO! I waited until the next morning, still no luck. I turned on the laptop only to see it DIED! No kidding! Some how I lost a driver and had to put it back in. After I did, the antivirus program was gone. SO! I tried to reinstall it only to have it tell me I didn’t have the updates on my computer. I worked on it off and on all day before I finally got the 7 updates that I lost some how!!! THEN! The antivirus went in. ONLY to slow down my computer so much I quit for a couple days and went back to making art.
What a nightmare these beasts can be! Some thing so simple that it should only take 10 minutes! HA! Not in my house! At least I finally got it in my dinosaur and we’re back up and running safely. Just very slowly! Darn it any way!
I’m going to do a garden art show, here in
, June 8, 9 & 10 called Sorticulture! Get it? Any thing that sorta goes with horticulture ,,, Sorticulture! Ahhhh!!!! It’s a great show. They bring in close to 15,000 buyers and 100 vendors that bring in any thing that goes in a garden. All of it is supposed to be hand made from that artist. You will also find a lot of plants, antiques, food, drinks, music, entertainment and an area for kids. It’s a great show! If you are in the area, stop on by! It’s well worth the visit!!! My booth is called: Everett
! Crustic & Craptastic Garden

These are what I call architectural pieces for your garden! They sit "inside" a group of flowers and "peek" out to draw attention to your planted area!
Have a good one and thanks for stopping by! Shell
