Just wanted to add Will’s ( age 14 ) entry which is the little mice sun bathing. He used water-color pencils and a aqua painter to color his image which is stamped on water-color paper with versa fine black ink. The other two are what I made with scraps and previously stamped images from my piles of bits and pieces which I took on our weekend trip. While the kids swam I set to crafting on one of the beds and the night stand near by. Many passers-by our open patio door probably thought What is she doing in there as I had stuff all over the bed ,scissors, paper trimmer , ink stamps adhesive and loads of paper pieces. Brian says I could do a whole workshop for the hotel out of my scraps 🙂 The little bird and butterfly are on dimensional tape. They are from my business cards when I was a demonstrator which I lovingly stamped and colored loads of. I didn’t get into the usage of scraps as I had vowed for my new years resolution so thought I’d better get busy. The little bird on the flower-pot was a piece colored a few years back also.
Please keep Brian in your thoughts he had a tooth pulled today and is still having a fair bit of bleeding after about 6 hours. He has even conceded to taking the pain meds the Dr. ordered so I know he isn’t feeling well. ( he usually won’t take more than a small dose of ibuprofen )
He has two more that need to be removed after many years of fillings and trips to the dentist they can’t be saved anymore.
Jordan is excited about his new job. He will be escorting the large windmill blades and occasionally large Caterpillar machinery. As he excitedly told me about what he was going to be doing I thought of your posts this past summer Leslie of the wind turbine and large machine you posted. He will be around highway 80 Illinois and Iowa Who knows maybe you will cross paths as you travel when you get back out driving again. Lynn I hope you are still on the mend and feeling better and getting to craft or garden. It is getting that time of year again isnt it? We had temps in the mid 50’s today I hope it stays that way 🙂 Have a safe Trip Leslie and enjoy your time with Joe I’m sure you miss him bunches while he’s away.
I’m off to tend to my honey .
Love and hugs,
