Got the kids moved into new apartments so I made them some planters for the patios.....had so much fun.......love to make these!!! I have a special haven in the garden where I can putter about and create lovely planters and such, it is so soothing and calm out there. I make moss rocks for my beds and herb garden, too, and I will have to do a tutorial on that for ya'll, because they are EXPENSIVE to buy!! There is a family joke about moss rocks....when DH and I were making the first herb garden I decided I needed some large rocks covered in moss for the beds.......we went to a materials yard where DH practically fainted at the idea of spending 150.00 on ROCKS (thought I had rocks in my head, truth to tell) but he bought them and it has been a joke around here ever since. Every time I decide I want something that is in the least bit off the wall, the kids spout "Uh oh, Mom is buying moss rocks again!" I DID learn how to make my own, as I was pretty certain he was NEVER gonna BUY them again......sigh!!!! It is 104 every day so it has been a challenge just to get the energy to think, however........LOL.....South Texas in the summer.....like up north in the winter.......we'll be getting cabin fever by August 1st at this rate!!!
I bought some fabulous tutorials from Dawn over at The Feathered Nest - my grandbabies are coming to craft with me and I wanted to have a pictorial view of what we were doing - these are just perfect and the kids can understand and feel like they made something "all by themselves" ( well, almost!!) -a little help from Gramma never hurt anyone!!! I am going to help the littlest one make a pincushion for her Mama - that will be a lot of fun!!
I have been cleaning and sorting in my studio this past week and I have found some cool papers and such that I even forgot I had.....how fun is THAT....so I will get some scanned and share - it's almost like Christmas around here when I finally get through the spring rush and rediscover my studio and my stash!!!
Well, gotta get back to it - can't have those little ones in there like it is now - wouldn't FIND them till Christmas!!!!
I am happily married to the love of my life, my soul-mate, my very best friend. I have four beautiful grown children, two with spouses that I claim as mine, too, and four darling grandchildren!! I grew up on the beaches of Maine, in the antiques and art and music world, and I am now in the plant world with my darling hubby. We live an organic, natural lifestyle and try to teach as many as we can. We are truly blessed by God, thankful for every day and every opportunity to meet people like you!
