Nicole loves hers :)

Wind, like all elements in this month's challenge, can be our friend or foe.
I choose to see the friendly side, because here in the hot south, a breeze is a cherished commodity in the midst of an oppressive summer.
Today we took the girls to the local planetarium to see their first starry show. It is hot & humid today, but I rolled down the window anyway to enjoy the breeze & to take this photo.

I'd like to extend that sentiment to the boutique designers and buyers that I work with.
I enjoy meeting and working with my buyers. It is fun for me to make clothing for one special little girl, knowing that she and her mommy (at least) will appreciate and enjoy the design they receive from me. This is why I have a Customer Gallery on my eBay Me page, because I love to see the girls whose beauty shines through my designs.
I also hope that buyers feel the same way - that they like buying something that has a face and an artistic mind behind what they are receiving, as opposed to a mass-manufactured garment that has been through countless hands of which you will never know the name of even one.
This really extends to all indie artisan businesses:
It is the people that make it special!

This salsa recipe from my friend Laura has just the right kick & flavor.
1-28 oz. can whole tomatoes
1-4oz. can diced green chilies
1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch green onions
2 cloves garlic
Cut up whole tomatoes in bowl, and beforehand drain the juice into a blender. Add diced green chilies and green onions to the the tomatoes. Boil the jalapanoes and add TWO only into the blender with the juice and add the 2 cloves. Blend well and then add the cilantro bunch(with the stems chopped off) and pulse until chopped like you like. Add the blender mixture to the tomatoes. Salt to taste. Taste the salsa and chop up the third pepper if it's too mild. If it's too hot, than you can add fresh tomatoes to cut the heat.
