Hello! Have you been busy crafting, or gardening?

I have been doing a bit of each.  I am still working on the project I hope to share soon, but I have also managed to squeeze in some time to garden.  Unfortunately while doing the simple task of weeding around some shrubbery in the yard, I picked up poison ivy, or poison sumac, or poison oak.  To make matters worse, it is on my face!  Woe is me!  While I am waiting for this dratted stuff to go away, I think I will stay indoors, away from the weeds, and in my scrap room.  maybe play with some art journals a bit, I have been a misting maniac lately.  :)  I have also been videoing a wee bit, and hope to start learning to edit videos.  Here is a little snippet of some baby birds who are nesting on our windowsill in the dining room (unedited video).  It has been amazing watching them grow!  Well, I think I will go work on a few projects, so I will close for now.  I hope you enjoy beautiful weather, and stay away from the poison ivy!  Happy crafting!  I wish you a joyful and creative week ~ Pam

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!
