I've always liked yellow. I think I'm particularly fond of this color during the summer. (kind of an extra dose of sunshine) Today I'm posting a grouping of yellow things I like. The images are from pintrest. Hope you have a golden day!

I'm still settling down from the weekend excitement. The weather was well, HOT! But I will take the heat any day over the frigid cold. We spent Saturday evening riding ponies, playing in the pool & eating lots of birthday cake. I love kiddie parties! Who knew... What a good time!

So I just wrapped up my next book with Barefoot. Who's in the Farmyard? This is part of the peek-a-boo hole series I've worked on with them. I unfortunatley can't show any of my spreads for that project now. But, I do have the farm fresh on my mind & I can show you this. This is a fun farm piece done a couple years ago. We've been so busy around here lately. The hard part is showing what I'm up to. So often companies don't want any info disclosed until the product hits that market. I have to say I completely understand! On another farm note I'm headed to a birthday bash this weekend. (can't wait) Our friends have twins that are turning 4! For the big occasion they are having ponies brought to their home for kids to ride. (Oh, my the things we:)

To DO...

Do you make to do lists? I do. I have them all over my desk & my bedside table. Last night I was doodling some things I want to think about the next couple weeks. Seems like summer is just flying right by. Hope I get to some of this! If not I'll just put it on the next TO DO list.

My trains bedding (The Little Bedding that Could) is now on SALE at The Land of Nod. They have limited sales on their bedding so take advantage of it while you can. This is what I currently have in my son Luca's room. It's durable, colorful & lots of fun!
