Weekend Wrapup

What beautiful weather we had this past weekend! We worked in the yard all Saturday morning and then decided that we needed a little fun so we packed it in and headed to our favorite state park. We took the canoe and got some fishing in. I caught a teeny tiny fish and D decided to use it as bait. I kept telling him he wouldn't catch anything...and within 20 seconds of casting he yelled that he had a BIG FISH. Ummm...yeah he did indeed catch a big fish. I went to grab (he fell off the hook) him so we could take pictures and realized he had TEETH when he bit me. DH and J were out on the canoe while D and I stayed on shore. Needless to say I will be double checking fishes before I pick them out!
On Sunday, we went over to a friend's house for a pig roast. The boys (big, small and tiny) had a blast playing football and soccer while the ladies cheered them on. What is it with adult men that turns them into little kids the minute a ball comes out? LOL...DH getting ready to tackle D in this pic!

And best of all, getting a picture of my nephew and hanging out with my friend's baby...both sporting onesies I made for them :) Well my nephew isn't 'cos the hunk-a-chunk doesn't fit in the 3-6mth onesie 😳
Have a wonderful Monday!!!

Sneaky Sunday

I had a vision in my head of an altered art project back in the spring and knew it would be a perfect class project. Problem was I couldn't make it affordable enough nor could I find the perfect embellishments for it. I had bits and pieces but couldn't source enough for a class. Fast forward to the summer and the release of some new items. I did a little shopping, waited impatiently for it to come in and got right down to it. It only took me 2 hours to put this piece of art together and that included playing and testing products. I'm just going to share a sneak peek with you today...more details on the class to come in my newsletter sometime later in the week.
I love it and had so much fun putting it together. I hope you like it too...and enough to sign up for class!

Summer Recap

The kids are back in school and it's back to work for me as well. I did take some of July and most of August off. I'm back and have quite a few things to share with you. I thought I'd start off easy here on the blog with a little recap of our summer...this summer we made our way to Malaysia to visit family and friends. Here's a pic of my boys with their great-grandmother. I love that there is a picture of a younger her in the background. We stayed for 2 weeks and included a whirlwind trip to KL and Singapore. As always we got back and wished we had stayed longer.
There was ONE beach trip...hoping to get one or two more in before it gets too cold and sports start up again.
Ice cream was on the menu A LOT. Even Diego got in on that and his favorite is Madulka's on the lake.
The vegetable garden survived the summer...thanks to our awesome house sitter...and provided us with plenty of fresh goods.
There was plenty of time spent with my boys...trying to get shots from different angles and I think I like this one.

There was also fishing, canoeing, shopping, home projects, video games, hikes, walks, grilled pizzas, etc. Here's to a great summer 2015...hope yours was wonderful and full of memories. Now onto scrapping those memories!
