A Tree for All Seasons...

I was so happy with the way my prim tree turned out that I made another batch of salt dough yesterday and made some more ornaments. I think this could become addicting for me because I love how I can work with my hands to shape each one and then paint it how I like it. The picture does not do the ornies justice. You cannot tell how pretty and sparkly they are when the lights from the tree reflect off the glitter. Even Wendell commented on how nice they turned out.

If you click on the picture of the tree, you should be able to see it a little better.
The new ornies that I am doing are for St. Patricks Day, Easter and spring. I have so many ideas running through my head right now for them that I may have to make another batch tonight!
Hopefully we will be able to take a drive today. The morning started off extremely foggy but the sun is trying to pop through. I am determined to get a few photos taken today so I can also play... I mean learn how to use Photoshop Elements 8. Its such a neat program for photo editing once you learn how to use it. Lucky for me I have Robby and my 'How to...' book to help me through it.
Are you ready for two more phrases today? Once again I had trouble posting with blogger. I even tried posting on a few blogs that I follow and I could never get the comment box to pop up for me. I don't know if its blogger or this dang old dial-up internet service.
#1 - Siamo solo amici.
see-ah-moh so-low ah-mee-chee
We're just friends.
#2 - Sapere 'e potere.
sah-pay-ray ay poe-tay-ray
Knowledge is power.
Well, it looks as if its going to be a beautiful Monday. I hope you can manage to enjoy some of it too where ever you may be.
Take Care,
