This is the day!

It's the last day of school and it marks the beginning of an exciting adventure. What to do this summer... I had my kids write a list and it goes like this: play the wii, jump on the trampoline, go swimming, play the wii, jump on the trampoline, go swimming. I am excited, but I have a sneaky suspicion that they will get bored with this and be looking for some more activities! I have to come up with a plan, free movies and bowling are on my list, as well as a little letterboxing and a few trips to the library. What's on YOUR list?

Musings and a Trampoline

Lately I feel like I spend more time reading other people's blogs than I do writing in my own. I have a goal to spend more time writing here. And to catch up on my email! I end up looking at craft blogs and do less crafting LOL It's such a strange thing...

Yesterday we had a get together with a lot of people over for grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. When my DH went to get the meat, he came home with a trampoline! Several of he men put it together and all the kids jumped until it got dark. My kids are thrilled to have one! Today we spent time on it again :)

I also made a bandana top for my DD from this tutorial (like a pillowcase dress, but easier!) I'll have to take photos to post here!

Words-only Wednesday!

It has been very rainy here and I have been feeling like I can't post without some new photos. Why is that? I think I'd rather post photos than do a lot of writing! :) It's easier for me somehow.

Everything is going well and I have numerous projects going on (nothing really new there).

I am sort of looking forward to school being out, but sort of not. I enjoy the time to myself somewhat, but I also feel like other people get my kids more than I get them! I am in desperate need of coming up with a schedule for the summer vacation of things that we can do that are free or cheap, any ideas???

Bunny Project

I have completed another project this month- with help from my DD. As far as the bunny goes, she picked out the pattern, did the tracing and cutting and stuffing. We modified it a bit and didn't paint it. She even drew the face! I did the machine sewing. It turned out very cute :) We were both pleased.

OPAM completed project for May

Here is a photo of my completed project for the month. It was my first attempt at a doll and was a little more difficult than I had imagined! In the end, I like his expression and his hair, although I modified the pattern when it came to his hair and his "dress" became a tshirt as well. All in all, I like him. He will be going to an orphanage through a project from Craft Hope.
