This in that recently...

I have some "new to me" items to organize some of my scrappy goodies in my art room.  Not sure if I will keep them the same color or paint them black/walnut.  For now, they are as is.

I have had this mirror for 2 years.  It is finally hung.  I totally dig it.  I bought it at a consignment shop.

When we picked Bri up from camp over a week ago we noticed wooden crosses all over the camp.  Crosses carved into tree trunks.  For whatever natural reason the tree went down, they simply kept the trees and carved crosses in them.  All sizes and heights.  We found it unique.

Random photo really.  I found it interesting.  Found on a front porch at Camp Loucon.  Kinda creepy, too.

In A Nutshell...

I have been extremely busy lately.  But I will post a few highlights!
I am almost sure this is alright as some may get bored with my random thoughts.  But have no fear for those who enjoy a read, I will be back.

These are my two boxes from Studio Calico.  They contained lots of goodies and my May and June Kits.  I am terrible about going out to the farm these days.  I am so busy that I just pop in when I can and to get my kits.  I always enjoy the country drive for sure.  April and Greg live about 11 miles from me and I it is that time of year when I need to supply the both of them with my homemade salsa.  They love it.

So far, these are the only layouts I have created recently.  I plan on getting my craft/art room back in shape.  I am reorganizing.  I have purged some things and I hope to be back creating in my room this weekend.  I better not make any promises though...something always comes up.

Well, I guess this is it for right now. 
I have more photos and I hope to post regularly. (see above paragraph)

Summer is Sizzling...

Literally!  This has been a super busy summer for our family.  When we are not working we are soaking in activities on the weekends. So, I really have not had much time to create or post here.  Summer is my time of the year and prefer to be out and about-doing and going.  Plus, I have something in the works I plan to share...I think.  I am still trying to figure out when I share how to go about is pretty big news for me.

But with that said, I have been creating with the 3 Scrappy Boys  July Kit.  I will show the first two layouts. I need to photograph the other things I have created with this really fun kit.  So, here ya go...

 Well, I guess many are staying home for CHA SUMMER and not heading to Chicago.  But I have been checking out the Craft and Hobby Website and it seems there are some new manufactures of some cool products showcasing them at the convention center.  I am anxious as it seems MIXED MEDIA art (my personal favorite) is becoming all the buzz and fad right now.

Well, I am off and about...I have a busy morning.
Have a terrific weekend.
