Feeling Nutty

I meant to do this post sooner, but I've been running around getting last minute stuff done.....

You see, I leave tomorrow morning at 7am for 3 whole weeks!  3 weeks of camping, hiking, sight-seeing, browsing and general lolligagging :)  I'm looking forward to being among the trees and recharging that something inside me that needs fresh air and bird songs...that loves to experience that humbling peace from standing next to a Redwood Tree older than the Civil War.... I look forward to it....I do......but.....this is the first time I've been away from my Blog for such a long time!  Never been away from all of you that long!  I'm going to miss you so!

I'm afraid that 3 weeks in Blogland will be like 3 months here and I'll fall out of favor with'll slowly forget about me as I tromp around looking for Banana Slugs and'll see a painting that reminds you of someone you knew once upon a time, Carmen you think her name was.....

Okay, okay, so I'm being over dramatic! But I do worry about providing you with visual delights and entertaining reads, y'know.....I want you to like coming here!  Your visits make me happy!

....And so, I shall offer you a bit of something to gaze upon, a little giggle, perhaps, and a promise..... :)

Here is a 2nd little Stuffed Guy I made for Micki over at The Secret Hermit Studio.  I made a free hand pattern of a squirrel in profile.

I used 2 different fabrics, felt arms, and like the frog, put a leaf and a button on his bum :)

....But, how do I know this is a boy squirrel, you wonder?  Any guesses?

Let's just chalk this up to a lesson learned.....give any future squirrels TWO legs and TWO ears!  I decided to send him to her despite his...ahem....flaws :)

Can't wait to hear what she thinks of him...haha! Hope he gave you that giggle I mentioned before :oD

And now the promise...I'll come home renewed and refreshed ready to create upon my return!  I always have a ton of new ideas swirling around inside my noggin after trips like this!

So, don't forget about me because.....
I'll be baaaahk!

xo, Cam

Cameron I love you so much!!!
I have deliberatly avoided looking on your blog until now in case you had posted about our trade!
I am laughing so much about the squirrely because you know what? I totally hadn't even noticed at all until you pointed it out, so funny!!
I absolutely love everything you sent, you are far too generous, I only hope you love the painting and are not disappointed when you get back from your trip.

Hugs for you wonderful lady
