My hand shadows made 15th, and I will say I'm quite pleased with that. I did not expect to do well, my design being so plain, but I love it...and here it is printed up!

Anyhow, new contest!
I've entered this design -

So there you go...and I promise I'll be making some posts that do not have to do with Spoonflower and their contests in the near future :)

New Spoonflower Contest - Paper Collages

Time for another round of Spoonflower contest! Last time I entered was the cocktail theme and managed to place 7th with this design:

mmmm...all the alcohols.

Anyhow, the newest one is Paper Collages, and you can vote here:

I've entered a design I've called Hand Shadow Animals:
to see it in repeat, go to my profile here:

And just so you know, you can vote for as many or as few designs as you like, and you don't have to vote for mine at all if you don't like it, I'll never know!

This summer has been so hot and humid, and this weekend was no exception. Despite this, we decided we needed a blueberry fix, and of course the only way to solve that is to pick them yourself! We headed to Durocher Farm in Litchfield, NH and had lots of (sweaty) fun.

Me and the little guy grabbin some berries.

Andy and Ferris.

Ferris was mostly interested in grabbing whatever he could reach...there were many sad branches left that day!

His first taste of mushed up blueberry. Doesn't seem like much of a fan so far...

We came away with a fair amount of berries, there were plenty but in that heat Ferris just wasn't going to last. We'll try again this coming weekend and see what we can get.
