I have been mulling around what kind of Halloween project to start. I always do something special for the kids. I think I will try to make a video to share with you. The lighting should be better with the new setup everything being more spread out and all.
The kids are home early again today due to the 100 degree temperatures and hotter with the heat index. I was supposed to be kid free today but Sierra called me early wanting to visit before they go up north to see Melissa’s family for the weekend. We will be staying home this weekend since all the kids are feeling under the weather . We may go over to Champaign to hang out with Jereme our oldest son and his girl Alice. We can still hit the YMCA to do some swimming if they feel better tomorrow afternoon. There is still the Sweet corn festival if the heat drops down some, don’t think we want to stand in line for hot corn in 105-1110 heat , but who knows we can still have a nice adventure. Thanks for all the encouragement I feel better about the video thing. I watched Jann’s distress stains video the other day and had her send me a copy of her I am an artist poem, Man that is so me I am always so critical of my work I guess it’s because in my head it is always different then it turns out so I get discouraged because I think it needs to be “just right”. So I felt better knowing that I am not the only one who has this same thinking. I went through my vast mass of hoarded cards ( you know the ones I keep as a sample) and found that some of the cards I thought were unacceptable were actually quite nice. Maybe its looking at them in a different light but there were some that I did in the early stages of card making that were well ….you know …. From someone who was new to card making . So back to the poem I am going to retype it and print it out on some cardstock and decorate it to hang in my corner. The file Jann sent is very pretty so I feel like I am marring her pretty work. Light bulb over head moment” as I type this. I can use her file as a background on my laptop Hmmm. Yup that’s what I’ll do J OK enough rambling we are on our way to do some errands I will post this when I get home.
Take care and hope you are all enjoying your day.
Hugs and much Love,
