Hi Everyone! I hope that you are all doing well. It is a beautiful day here in NC. Currently I am sitting on my deck with a big glass of sweet tea listening to the birds sing and the nice southern breeze blowing. It is so nice out today. Yesterday when my DH came home we did some yard work, which included mowing about 4 of the 8 acres that we live on, And I am so happy that today is nice so that we can get more yard work done.
I just love this time of year. To me Spring is a time of renewal, a time when all thing dead and dormant sprout to life and grace the world with their presence. The flowers start spouting and showing their wonderful colors, Trees bloom and the bees buzz floating from flower to flower collecting pollen to make their delicious honey. One of my neighbor is a bee keeper so we always have a constant supply of the golden goo. Yummy! Spring is also a renewal for me and others. We get a chance to shake off the winter dust that has clouded our spirits. We toss and clean all those things that we have collected through the winter and become NEW! Oh what a wonderful day it is in my neighborhood!
Ok so I have chatted enough, I could keep rambling on and on but I am scared that I may have already lost a few of you. lol
My favorite blogger, Kandrew@ http://www.gettingcricky.com/ posted a challenge to Get Campy this week, and since camping is one of my favorite things to do it was no trouble at all.
My husband and I are avid campers but we do it old style" Tent camping". There is just something about sleeping in a tent. Laying there at night listening to the crickets and frogs chirping their wonderful tunes, sitting by the campfire at night and telling stories that you have heard or told a million times but, they always have renewed life when told around a crackling campfire. Basic chores like washing dishes and cooking meal seem to be so much easier when they are done outside. No one complains and everyone is always willing to help. Can you tell that I love camping?!
Ok so here is the project that I created for gettingcrickysundaychallenge.
I used the Summer Vacation cricut solutions cart. for the tent and the fire. I had to add my own layers but i think that they turned out just great. The grass was scrap green paper that I cut to look like grass and I chalked the blue paper to look like it had clouds.( they don't so up to well in the pictures) i add some ribbon and buttons to the top. I am going to put this in a frame(when I find one that will fit) and put in on my desk!
Thanks for stopping by!
