Summer Days

The summer is flying by. We have been getting alot of rain this July. But last week we had a few sunny days and the kids did our annual cement block for the summer. Here we are mixing it... Don't you like the swim mask Erika is wearing. Makes her look like a mad scientist at work... Then mom poured it into the form and the kids smoothed it all out... And then the fun begins...decorating it up. We used beads, glass tiles, letter beads It is fun just to watch them pick out the right bead and put it in Here is the finished project still wet And here it is all dry..I have to do a little creative painting on Andrew's name. There was only one R and Erika used it first so we used a P and now Mom has to do a little painting. :) These are the blocks we did in 2007, 2008. We missed making one last year. We are enjoying summer! Colleen

Here is another blog background for your blog..I called it Ghost's.. I have more templates in the works, fall and christmas. I will post pictures of those as soon as I get them done. I also have some banners made up for Etsy. Just need to list them. So if you feel like changing your store on Etsy go check out what I have. Summer is just flying by so fast. The kids and I went shopping and we hate seeing all the back to school stuff out there. Oh there I days when they both are fighting like brothers and sisters do sometimes and I think it will be nice to have them back at school but I really like having them home with me most days. Hope you are all enjoying the days of summer! Till next time Colleen

My weekend, templates and crafts

I had a wonderful weekend with all my kids. It was my youngest birthday, he turned 7.. He wanted to go spend it with his older brother Adam , older sister Heather in Greenbay. I had no problem with that because then I got to hang out with my little granddaughter Rachel... The weekend went way to fast but when you are with the people you love and having a good time it always does. My kids played in Rachel's waiting pool. Rachel was napping and missed out on the fun. When I got home sunday night this is my rose that opened up while I was gone... I am glad we got home when we did because we had some rain after we were home awhile. Today I am crafting on some ghost's and hope to have a picture of them soon. Hope to be working on lots of fall items and even start snowman and christmas so be on the watch for those. I am also starting some new templates and banners for Etsy for fall and christmas. So if you need to spruce up your pages check out all my templates and banners.Hope to get some of them done by the end of the week. Till next time Colleen
