Jerry and I drove up to the Chicago area Thursday - Sunday. Sorry but I had no computer to keep in touch. I did get a chance, on Saturday, to drive by The Beat of My Art Store in Naperville (Debbie Egizio's shop) and picked up some loverly-smelling homemade soaps and 3 of Debbie's cards. Her shop has jewelry, handmade bags and little items as well as cards and homemade soaps and just things you want :)
Unfortunately for me, Debbie was off on a special weekend home art show and I didn't get to meet her. Maybe next time!
And nothing artsy to post for me so I thought I'd update you on the progress of the 4 cardinal babies in our shrub by the door.
When we left, they had all hatched and were just scrawny looking things with buggy places for eyes but nothing happening yet.
And when I moved the shrubs to get a good look, one of the babies decided I was mama or papa coming to feed them and, not wanting to be left out, it got ready for its meal :) Two of the babies sleep with their mouths open, just in case! haha
