The Brenda Photo Challenge

I just love doing the Brenda Photo Challenge! This months theme was frozen. And lets face it we all have seen a little of that this winter. And some of you are still getting it or expecting more. Some of us only saw a little and even though it is mostly a pain in the bottom, it is quite beautiful!

It can show up on almost anything and has the oddest affects.

But even the slightest touch can give a sleeping plant a luxurious glow.

And what goes better with ice than snow?

 So the best we can do is take advantage of it. Not only by beautiful pictures but with winter fun!

So happy winter everyone! And remember to try to find beauty in everything you do.

Friday I have missed you

Oh it seems so long since I have had a weekend that wasn't full of basketball, shopping or family gatherings. Don't get me wrong I love doing these things but I am in need of some down time!  And crafting sounds like a great activity for that down time. It can be stressful but it is mostly enjoyable and can even be relaxing.
 My craft room is coming together and I have some orders to work on. And I am super excited to see if my organizational skills where useful when I set up the craft room or if I will be spending the day shifting things around.
 It is feeling like love is in the air..... and every where I look I am starting to see red hearts and pink ribbons.  I guess this holiday  is normally for adults but I can't help but think of little boys and girls handing out valentines and sharing candy. You know before the messy love stuff shows up and things are still so Innocent. So I can't wait to get crafting this weekend and have some red and pink items of my own to share with you.
Until then here are a few hearts to help get you in the mood for love. Happy Crafting!

Welocome 2011!

Well it has been a while since my last post and alot of things have been going on. As with the rest of the world the holiday season was very busy between school parties, birthdays and just the holidays alone kept me on my toes. Plus this was my first year really focusing on my crafts. It was all great and I loved it! We are in the process of converting a section of the garage into a craft room. This will give me plenty of room to work and create which I absolutely love to do.

My oldest son has also taken an interest in crafting and it making the most amazing things from paper and cardboard. He has made boats, planes, character helmets and he even made a suit of armor for his Halloween costume party. He is very talented and one of the best parts is he is drawing it out first and then using math, yes I said math, to convert it to the size he wants his finished product. He has not realized this fact yet so don't tell him!  LOL

So this year is starting out good, the Lord surely has blessed us. I will leave you with a few shots from my other favorite past time, photography.   I can't wait to share new things with you very soon.

Happy New Year!
