The Last few months I have been so busy I felt I barely had time to breath. (note to self)"I am NOT Wonder Woman!!! But she did have those cool bracelets... My daughter was preparing for her high school graduation. I needed to get the yard, and house in order for company and a party. If I weren't busy enough, I was baby sitting and trying to fix up a house we just bought to rent out. On top of that it was garden season and after the hike in veggie prices I vowed to grow my own delicious veggies.. I was very diligent and get my garden planted early. I did everything I was supposed to then suddenly in April we started getting 90 degree temps. Its the end of June and we have nearly seen a month of 3 digit weather. Of course blossoms drop and fruit fails and bugs go crazy. Im hoping to replant in August and hope for a fall garden. So with that sizzling heat searing me like a steak on the grill, its time to turn my focus back into my crafting room. Before it got so hot, I was working on some Garden Art as well. I recently made a gazing ball from a bowling ball using marbles, silicone and a ball. I did a search and wanted some cool garden art made from junk and found a new passion in glass. Glass totem poles or Glass Topiaries made from stacking cut glass, and of course my ever so cool gazing bowling balls. I will try soon to get some of my yard art posted.
Now back to my Scraproom. First, time to sort, organize and declutter... setting aside what I will use for teaching class and what I want to donate. I found some new papers the other day I couldn't wait to use by my minds eye. Its the Lost and found collection. This is so beautiful and sparkly and so vintage. LOVE IT!!!
I also will be preparing for a class at the Senior Center teaching lightbulb ornaments. The theme is Christmas in July. I can't wait to show them. I saw this idea at amandascrafts.com. the first brown and pink layout is using my minds eye lost and found papers...Yummy papers.
