I am sorry no posting over the weekend, but I made myself sit down and get busy crafting. I made some fall and Christmas stuff, but have a bunch more to go. The weather was up and down this weekend, so I stayed inside.
Friday was the last day of VBS for the kids. My daughter was in the junior high class and they did their Bible studies, but then went and did fun stuff each day too. They went to a golf driving range, which my daughter said she is no go at. Then they went bowling. Then another day they went to Putt and Stuff where they were suppose to miniature golf, but it rained so they played laser tag and video games inside and when it cleared off they went out and drove mini stock cars around the track. On Friday they went swimming in a pond at one of the church members house. HEHE my daughter didn't like that too much as she is used to a pool. Ummm.. I think the words were "Mom it had a dirt bottom and you couldn't see anything." LOL she came home and took a shower right away. My son said he had fun as the theme was about dinosaurs. One of the days he got this block of something (I have no idea what it is clay????). Anyway, there are dinosaur "fossils" hidden in it and the kids have to excavate with a pick and brush to discover them. Well, I didn't take a pic, but I have white stuff everywhere all over my table and chairs. He had fun though. Friday night was their closing ceremony and all the classes sang songs that they learned. I just adore watching the 2s and 3s singing ok running all over the stage. LOL.
Like I say Saturday rained and then the sun came out then it rained so on and so forth. My son wanted to go swimming so he went to my in laws in the afternoon and didn't come home until 8pm Sunday night. My daughter was to spend the night at a friends house after her friend came home from canoeing. Don't get me started on that Mother. GRRRR.... they made out that the other Mother would come pick up my daughter when they got back in town. We finally get a call at 8:30pm that they were back and could I bring my daughter over. So my hubby took her. The thing that burnt me was hubby and I were going to go to dinner just us. I told him before I knew the other Mother wasn't coming that we shouldn't have to wait til she got there to go. He said no we better wait until she comes. I am glad he said that because she wouldn't have been able to go. Bad thing is we never went to dinner then. So because of this other Mother I had to change my plans. Then she couldn't even bring her home the next day I had to go pick her up. Anyway, so hubby didn't eat dinner he said it was too late he had to get up early so he went to bed. What an exciting evening we had. I crafted all day though while hubby was working on the farm because I had no interruptions.
Sunday it rained in the morning but turned out to be a beautiful day in the afternoon. I crafted a little more and finished things up and put away since I won't get back to it until Wednesday because of my other job. I just couldn't get as motivated to get much else done.
I thought I would post some pics of a few things I accomplished over the weekend. Please respect me as an artisan and do NOT copy or use my pictures without prior permission. I work hard on being different and making my own patterns. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Love these pillows.
This primitive pumpkin door hanger is not done as I need to add some sweet annie and other drieds as soon as I get my hands on some. Oh yeah if anyone who reads this either wholesales grubby candles or knows where I can get my hands on them it would be appreciated. I only need a few depending on how many I need to make.
Corn cob dolls. The idea came from Jill at Fruit of Her Hands.
I saw Kindra's corn and thought I needed some so I came up with these, the leaves are inspired by RK Creations, and the acorns (which you can barely see) are my pattern.
