WOOO, sorry to be MIA for a few weeks, but I have been hanging out in the garden!

My word, I can hardly move! The hubs and I just finished planting a ginourmous garden this last weekend, by ourselves. We just have a wee bit more tweaking and planting left to do. We are donating the extra produce to an inner city feed the hungry project our church participates in. We more than doubled our garden from last year to make sure we have lots to donate. Hope we don't kill ourselves taking care of this garden! It will defintely keep us busy this summer. The hubs is even talking about cutting down some out of control apple and pear trees that have storm damage from years before we bought the property and putting in another small bed for just gourds and pumpkins. He feels bad because I whined like crazy that we didn't leave room for any pumpkins for the grandbabies. We were going to wait to cut those tress down until next year, but hey, we are on a planting roll! :0)

I did want to let you know about a sale happening over at Zutter, zip over there and take a peek, loads of covers are on sale and going quick - Bind-It-All
Here is a little blurb from the blog -

Wowie! We need some room in the warehouse! We have a first time EVER sale on Zutter Covers and Inner Pages. 15% Off Site-Wide for a limited time only.


Stock on up on Zutter Acrylic, Clipboard Wood, Canvas Artboard and good ole trusty Chipboard. We also have pre-cut cardstock Inner Pages ready to go for quick album making.


Alrighty, I promise to update with pics of creative projects this weekend when I have a wee bit of free time. I have volunteer commitments several times this week, so I won't be able to do so until then,and I am just starting to feel like my normal self from that dang sinus infection SHEESH. Talk about getting my fanny kicked! Please stop by late this w/e (like Sunday night), and I will have lots of pics to share. If you are going away for the holiday w/e, please be careful and stay safe. Don't forget the sunscreen!

Here are a few pics of the garden so far this year (we started most of those plants indoors, it was a regular green house over here he he) ~

Oh WoW!! Pamala you have been busy. My daughter is the greenfingers in my family, but unfortunately she doesn't live at home anymore so we no longer have a veggie garden.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting Caddie...she was fun to design and knit for.
Warmest Hugs,
Sandi @ Bearly Sane

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
