This picture turned out really dark. I love my new phone, but I'm really NOT impressed with the camera! It just does not take good pictures, but maybe you will get the idea. I've been scrapbooking our deep sea fishing trip for quite a while now. I really need to finish it. I have had it on my F.R.E.D. (For Really Easy Designing available through Aptus Designs) for over a month! I'm thinking about stitching the pictures to the page with a tan thread. I haven't experimented with thread yet. Nothing on the page is glued down, just stuck it on there to try to get some ideas. I need a muse!
The other day I was going outside to check the chickens and gather eggs. My hens were not happy. So, I walked inside the coop and there was a 5 foot long chicken snake eating my eggs!!! I am not kidding. It was 5 whole feet in length! I have no idea how many he ate, but I was not happy that he was there. My hero, aka my husband, took care of the snake for me, but I am extra cautious now when I walk out there. I'm just glad he didn't get one of my chicks!
Sorry, I didn't take a picture of it. I was totally disgusted.
I scraplifted this page but I love it! It is certainly one of my favorites! You know, scraplifting is one of the highest compliments a scrapbooker can give!
I used a silver pen to color the star. I traced boarder paper for the background behind graduation and the stickers came as a set. Eyelets were used on the picture corners with a Crop-A-Dial. It was a pretty quick page, but I love the way it turned out. Especially with us clowning around on such a serious matter!
This is what my husband loves to do! He's a certified prescribe burn manager. He performs prescribed burns "controlled burns" and loves it. I like this picture because I know after the fire cools it brings new life to the forest!
This is Cogongrass, a highly invasive species that is in full bloom. It takes over pastures and lawns and livestock cannot eat it. Please read about it and help control it before it destroys our native species!
This is one of my FAVORITE paintings! I love to oil paint so I though I would share one with you. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to paint a glass vase/pitcher, but it turned out nicely! I would love to do another one like this, but with daisies in it with some twigs. I love daisies and it would be a nice touch to liven up a room. Don't you think? Anyway, I'll try to share more later.
I went kayaking and was thankful that the weather was warm because I got a little soaked! No, I didn't turn over. I just got splashed. A few of my family members went together and my sister had a snake try to get into her kayak. Lets just say she wasn't very happy. We are trying to teach my son and nephew the ins and outs of navigation. In our area, you always want to head for the deeper water, that will appear faster, and with less ripples/whitewater than the surrounding water. Sometimes, you just have to guess though!
