Well, I seriously have been working on getting this blog post finished and posted for two days now. To say there has been alot going on, would be an understatement. More fun tomorrow,... so tonight you get a post with lots of photos and not so much talky talk :)
I wanted to share some Vintage Street Market fun. Wyatt was here for a bit the other day with his mom, so he and I worked on a little book for him. This month Vintage Street Market and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L are teaming up, .. ( and you know I love them both!), so I thought it would be fun to show you how easy these adhesives can be for the kiddos, for some summer projects. I'll how you more of Wyatt's little "creative book" below, but first here are a couple of other projects done with the same line.
I used the "Party Games" Paper Sheets and Tags for all these projects.
I love making these covered wooden blocks for (or with) kids. They love the mix of images and photos fo themselves.
a tracing wheel just adds to the fun :)
Need a container for a summer Birthday party? It's easy to make pennants with the pieces from "Party Games:, using printed pieces attached to wooden dowels. I find the little wood pieces for the top of the dowels at the Craft store also. All you have to do is paint them fun colors, glue the tops on and add the pennants. I used my large scalloped scissors to add a fun edge to my crepe paper from the "Party Games" pack, then just lined the inside of the clear can with the polka dot paper.
Okay... here is Wyatt's book. he looks pretty proud of it doesn't he?
The EZ runner is working great for this crafter extraordinaire
If you have a little crafter in your house.. I can begin to tell you how much they love using 3D foam squares as an adhesive. I think because they can do it themselves with no help. "W" was going to down with these.
Hey look!.. they even work great for attaching buttons.
And.. the creative juices were flowing! He was so proud of his book, and thought it was so cool that he could do ANYTHING he wanted in it. Oh.... "creative freedom" ... we all need it. lol
Well, now that I shared the fun parts, I have to share a bit of our scary evening. I was in Lincoln today helping Wes move some things to his new place. My sis was "the best" an helped us all stinking day! Thanks sis! Anyway when we left Lincoln tonight as headed home, we were defiantly watching the sky!
It started out sunny.. then took a turn for the worse. Here is a bit of what we saw.
In the photo below, you can see Wes ahead of me pulling the trailer. Trust me we were on high alert by this time.
It was so ominous. By the time we got home the sky was just bizarre.... But little did we know what was happening near home,just ahead of us.
Jarad called my cell phone and said, his friend had called him saying there was a tornado just up the road from our house. Dan obviously watching the skys or the weather, because when I called home to ask him what was going on .. he was not aware! geeezzz... No tornado sirens in the country ..but we do have a weather alert alarm that Wes bought us for Christmas. Not sure how he missed that? Anyway, we were fine, and as far as I've heard , there was no major damage and no one hurt..but this is the photo Jarad's friend got of it with his phone.
There was other exciting things today..but I'll have to share those photos in my next post, because this girl has to get to bed! Tomorrow.. heading to the big flea market in Walnut Iowa!
Woo hooo! Photos to come!
Storms have passed for now.. so time for some sleep!
