A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

The Path To Nowhere

Yesterday was a favorite of mine. We woke up to a gentle rain that lasted most of the day. If you read my blog, then you might remember a couple of weeks back that I posted the Queen Creek wash after days of heavy rain. I was not able to ride my bike due to the closure of the riding path. The pictures showed you the creek all dried after the rain. These pictures are from today, and just look at the current. This is where the wash goes from one side to the other. We had a glorious day today of sunshine and weather temps in the low 70's, but I couldn't get across the raging water.
This is the first time in almost 7 years that I have seen moisure in the wash. It is eye candy for sure.

Raging currents with a lot of power.

The sound was amazing and it's something I don't think I would ever tire of. Believe it or not, you could see ducks and hear frogs. It makes you wonder where they hang out all year long when this is dry....hummmmm

Anymore rain and I am sure this path would be under water.

There is a walking path that connects us to another neighborhood, it was the path to nowhere.

A sign says to stay off the path when water is present, gee, do you think??!!

So, what did I do while I was inside all day watching the rain? It's amazing what one can get done when they are in their pjs and in the studio, watching Lifetime movies.......LOVED IT!!

How about making tags for my etsy shop?

And more tags......

Don't stop now, I am on a roll...

You just can't make tags without there being something french.

Last, but certainly not least, I made a hanging sachet for my website. Don't you just love it when you are going thru your "stuff" and you find some treasures that you had forgot you had? That is exactly what happened with this sweet angel image. I didn't want to forget such a beautiful child, so I had to make something with her. I think she would be proud.

Ooh, your photos are incredible! I have such a love and respect for Nature... you really captured some beautiful shots... I love listening to the frogs too! xoxo Julie Marie PS I don't think it looks like a path to nowhere, I think it looks like a path to somewhere magical and beautiful!

I enjoyed your pictures and post today. I really would like some of that 70 degree temperature. Maybe it would make the snow melt faster. I love what you did with your adorable angel. If you figure out where the frogs hide when it is dry, let me know. Your Missouri Friend

It rained all day here yesterday. I'm ready for spring warmth. Your tags are ultra pretty!

Rebecca said...

Totally sweet, Char! Love the creations and the tags are 2die4.

Rain is always welcomed here. Snow and ice, not so much!

PJ's and movies are the perfect mix.

Love to you~Rebecca

Hello, Dear Char,
I know you must have really enjoyed that wonderful rain! Maybe springtime is just around the corner! Your tags are so pretty, and that little hanging sachet is gorgeous. I am glad you ran across the sweet image and could use it to make something so lovely. I love to stay in my pj's from time to time, too. Retired life is really wonderful, I must say. Hope your week continues to be full of sunshine and have fun creating. Vicki
