Ahhhhh. This is the life! School is out, Son #2 is taking his turn going to work with Daddy, and it’s just Son #1 and I here. I’m sitting outside on the back patio in my pj’s with a cup of tea, listening to the chirping birds, and the hypnotic creak of Son #1 on the swing – back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. It’s a bit nippy, but that’s just how I like it in the morning. I wish I could have breakfast out here *every* day! Son #2 doesn’t respect the peacefulness of the morning enough for me to set him free in the back yard while the neighborhood is still asleep, so I only get to do this when he is not here (which is almost never) or when Neil is home and I can sneak out the back door unnoticed. If it weren’t for the fact that my bottom is getting sore on this lawn chair, I’d stay out here all morning!
But to gloat over my luck at having a beautiful morning coincide with an opportunity to breakfast outside (and, ooh! a bunny just hopped by!) is not why I’m posting No, while I was sitting here, I had an idea. Usually my bright ideas come in the shower where I’m powerless to act on them, but today, I thought of something nifty and I had my tools to accomplish that goal right in front of me.
I created a Flickr group.
As you probably know, I’ve been featuring free tutorials by talented artists on my website for the last 9 months or so. Many of you have been passing the links around – I see them popping up on other sites and message boards all the time. So I’m wondering what amazing things you’ve been making with these instructions! Here’s your chance to show me (and everyone else). If you’ve used a Polka Dot Creations tutorial for anything you’ve made lately, take a picture of it and head on over to our new Flickr group to show it off. And don’t be shy about posting the first picture. *Somebody* has to do it!
I look forward to seeing what you have done!
