Summertime Collage

For the past year I have been subscribing to the Cloth Paper Scissors Zine, and have been truly inspired. The projects and pieces featured each month are so fun that I have felt compelled to dabble in mediums that I have never tried before.

These pics are of Mack learning to skim board when we stayed a week at the coast June 2010. The quote is, "Let the Beauty We Love Be What You Do" Rumi. Watching Mack was a truly beautiful summertime moment!

Let me introduce my crafting project over the summer. Meet my lovies, odd little creatures made from remenants and old clothes. They are so much fun to make and each one is different.

I have the wonderful opportunity to sell these creations at a local craft/art store. The only hard part is getting them out the door before my boys realize they are not for them!

Catching Up Over the Summer

We have certainly had a busy summer. June saw lots of travel from my trip to San Fran, then off to Cayucas for college graduations with a wonderful week on the beach, then Yosemite, and finally a trip to Redding for a wedding.

July included several camping/hiking trips.

And then there was the super secret birthday surprise trip to Disneyland. We are excited to be close to our backpacking trip into Yosemite high country and a visit to Clouds Rest. We will keep you posted.

My first post

Yes this is first post. Drum roll please! I hope to post all the fun and exciting happenings with me and the boys. Here is a little taste of the June trip to Yosemite. Beautiful but too crowded for our taste.
