On The Hunt

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a relaxing summer day! It's finally warm here and feeling like summer! For some reason right now my artistic level is in full swing, could be the weather, pinterest, or just having my kids at home for the summer. Whatever the reason things in my brain are turning and I like it!!

So today we headed to the antique store to see if I could find a frame that I could spray paint a bright turquoise color. I planned on leaving with a cool new frame and instead left with a bunch of blocks- lol! Another idea occurred to me when I saw them, so we started digging for the right letters, and found them. Not in perfect shape, which is exactly what I was looking for, so it felt like a score!!

So here are my finds of the day:

I really like the vintage look of all of them, but the single Large "S" that we
found is super old and fantastic!

I am sure the blocks will show up in multiple pictures, so be on the watch.

As a side note. We never did find a frame that I was looking for, but on the way home
I remembered a frame that we had been caring around with us for about 10 years. I forgot we had it because it hangs in the garage! It's perfect for what I am looking for, and turquoise spray
paint will be purchased in a matter of hours :)

Have a great day everyone! I hope that art finds you today just like it did me!

Summer Fun 2011

Hey everyone! A new week has arrived! What do you all have planned? What are you going to do today? That is the question most asked around here during the summer. I found an answer.

Today while scrolling through my new found idea haven- Pinterest. I found an idea to make a summer fun list that can be put on your fridge. The idea came from the blog: Shannonbrown.

Here is what our version looks like:

The space on the fridge where the usual papers from school go :)
Now filled with the fun and relaxation of summer!

All I did to make this, was to get my Creative Memories digital program up on
the screen and start creating! We used bright summer like things for our pictures
and when we were ready we printed it out at home. It took about 30 minutes total
and the kids are so excited to get started on this list!

Now I will have an answer when I get asked "What we will do today?" :)
Have a great summer!!

"Doing Daily" -June 7, 2011

So most times I post on Facebook my daily activities...gardening, vaca, sewing...etc. But I decided that for the next 3 months...daily....I am going to SHOW you what I will be doing. This will be a great way for me to get to know my new camera and for me not to explain so much (a picture is worth 1000 words ya know) :) So to our first photo.

Today I will be sewing baggies for Tanzania!
