It is amazing how much you can see around your neighborhood when you take the time to really look....I found these busy buzzers during one of my walks with Dory last week.

Crafty Fun!!


I came across a cool craft chain, whilst browsing the internets last week. The concept is that for every 1 craft you send out, you should receive 36 back. I say, ok....but if I get even one or two I'll be happy. This doesn't have to be an elaborate craft. I am making a little crochet doo-dad. But you can sent a photo, a card, or anything else you can think of. Here is the description I received:

Here are the details on the "Art Exchange" project.

To participate please make one work of art/craft

It can be anything you want--a little drawing, painting, a print, a photo print, stamped/printed cards, something felted, sewn, beaded, crocheted, knitted...whatever fits you!. Whatever fits your niche and mood, and can be dropped in the mail within a week (or something like that...).

If you are interested, please shoot me an email at bethatebchristiansdotcom and let me know.  I'll get back to you with the info letter showing who you are sending to.

There are people participating from all over the world, how cool is that!

After the Rain

Lately, I have had this "thing" about running out after it rains to take pictures rain drops
 as they cling to the trees or berries, or grass, or anywhere :-).

It all began after seeing Judy, aka Squirrel Queen or at Road to Here, and her beautiful shot of a drop that seemed to contain a universe of color and beauty in it's reflection.

Thank you so much Judy for opening this world to me!

and showing me that going out and playing in the mud can be fun!!
