About Me

My photo

I am a work from home, home schooling Mom who loves her Kids...yep, I think my kids are great. You will find me: Knitting, cross stitch, embroidery and working with felt are things I enjoy for fun. I also love to decorate and find deep satisfaction in decorating my home with great finds and my handmade items.  Gardening is one of my great loves, it like decorating outside!

The Seasonal Dogwood limb

I have had a dogwood limb in my schoolroom since I could remember here is this Springs, Trinity is getting big enough to help me do it.
Rainbows everywhere!  The leaves are tissue paper that I cut long strands like willow leaves and draped them over the limbs.  This is their third year, if you fold them in half and put them in a plastic bag they will keep well.  If they have kinks just iron them.

Its the second year for the folded paper star, I store them between the mattresses.

The rainbow girl was made by a friend of mine for Trinity, I share a swinging song and a photo of her in an earlier post.

Sorry its been very cloudy hear so the picture is not so bright. 

The fairies are about 8 years old, their wool hair is starting to show it. 

The bumble bees are made from folded over pip cleaners and tiny wax paper wings here is the tutorial for them http://kingdom-of-the-sun.blogspot.com/2012/08/these-little-guys-are-fun-and-easy-to.html

The clouds I think are 1 or 2 years old.  They were sewn from felted wool with cotton floss.

 
Lucky the cat sits and watches the bird outside at the bird feeder.  Waiting for the kids to come and do their lessons.

Catching Up

Here are some photos that the kids and I put in our memory albums.  I wanted to give the kids some memories so I made sure my camera went everywhere we did.  Then we went and got three photo albums and three copies of each adventures photos and started filling them up.
 
I highly advise you to do this, my family is all gone and I have very few photos of all the times we spent together...I know they will appreciate this later on in life.
 
 
We have bee so busy and having so much fun!  Here we are at the Etowah Indian Mounds

Waiting for the Fireworks Labor Day...we got a double dose as the 4th of Julys fireworks got rained out so we had a firework extravaganza.

I know bad photo but the lighting was crazy...everything was under black lights and glowed in the dark.  This is Monster Golf
One of my most favorite picture of the kids!  When we went camping at Vogel
