Summer Update

Just a quick update to let you know I'm still alive. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far! It's been very hot and humid here, but a very good one nonetheless.

I haven't had much crafting mojo this summer, but I can feel it coming back. I have some ideas of some cards and scrapbook pages that I will probably be creating sometime in the next week or so.

I've recently found out that we are getting a Michael's in our area soon. That is so awesome!! Currently, we have NO craft stores locally; no Hobby Lobby, no Joann's....the only one we have anywhere close is Michael's, and it is a 45 minute drive, so I am SUPER excited about it coming. Once we get the Michael's, I will be able to create alot more. It's pretty much a pain to have to drive 45 minutes to get scrapbooking supplies.

Anyway, that's about it for now. Hopefully, if all goes the way I am hoping, I will be creating some cards and stuff in the next couple of weeks and will get them posted.

Hope you are all enjoying your summer!

Our New Neighbors!

A few days ago while my husband was mowing grass, he noticed that we had some new neighbors. When I came home from work on my lunch hour, he and my daughter were eager for me to meet these new neighbors. My daughter begins walking me out our back door. This was odd because we have no houses in back of us. A little closer walk revealed this.....

Do you see her? Right in the middle of the picture? It's a bird. This was the closest I could get without disturbing her because she was laying on these....

Aren't they precious? I don't know a whole lot about birds, but what would possess them to lay eggs in the middle of a yard? We have squirrels, deer and apparently a cat that I've never seen before until today. I was checking on the bird through our kitchen window and noticed a big white cat hunched down harassing the little family. I quickly ran out there to shoo it away and that's how I was able to snap the picture of the eggs. I hope they make it.
