So the weekend away sort of wet my whistle and got my little brain primed for more red white and blue fun! I made these little patriotic souls monday morning before I went to work! ! I just love how they turned out. such fun! I was up working on these at 5:00 in the morning.. A great time for crafting. makes it so much easier to go to work if I've had a little fun first. and then I took them with me so I could enjoy them all day! though if I hadnt been able to finish them that morning, I would have had a difficult time focusing at work because I would have been obsessing about finishing them! lol!
I made this cone and filled it on sunday afternoon after I got home. I had made the pinwheels and another cone at my aunts, but I needed to make a bigger one.
Also when I came home on sunday, I found two packages waiting for me! I had two partners for the patriotic ornie swap as there was a odd number and Im always happy to have two partners!
I received these wonderful old reflectors and patriotic trinkets from Sandy McClay. and Look at this awesome ornament she made me! I had to take something right off my tree and put this in a prominent place! thank you Sandy!
And then from my other partner, Ashley Cox, this is what I received! I LOVE it all.. the little vintage fireworks piece with the old photo and the three little owls! I hung one owl right on my tree and the other two are placed on the shelf in my living room. The fireworks piece is displayed with my little patriotic souls from the first pic I showed. thank you girls! I love all that I received!
Its finally summer here.. in fact its been pretty darn hot here. We dont have an air conditioner, but I do run a fan in every room and it seems to keep things bearable. Even Figgy and Franny found their way to sprawl out in front of a fan! I got a kick out of them!
Okeedokie bloggypies.. Ive got to get moving.. I have to transport a kid this morning and have to leave an hour earlier then usual... cramps my morning play time I tell ya! lol
have a great day!
