Lots of rain this year

and the dry creek bed is doing pretty good at getting the water from the neighbors past the house so its not all laying in the back yard.  Do have to tweak it a bit here at the corner of the house.  Need to go a bit deeper to keep it flowing correctly.  Thats a job!  plus need to put new shingles on the shed.  Always work to do around the place.  Winter is for doing in house stuff (like playing!)

So what do you do when

You have no idea what to do? Should I create a building?  Or dabble in making a boulder for the yard?  so many decisions. The boulder idea intrigues me.  Chicken wire and cement?  thinner wire - like screen?  Will have to do some research to see what others have done to create outside items.  More when I decide what to do.

Glass eyes from Germany are in

Got in new glass eyes. These are different as they are clear.  One design has the pupil painted in and are on wire - from 2mm to 5mm in size.  The other one is totally clear.  No pupil and no wire but these are great for doing decals, printing images on your printer and gluing to the eye, and painting your own iris'.  So check them out at:
