A visit with the G-babies

Cory and his family were here last week. Always a whirlwind of acitivity when they are here. The kids were able to swim alot and the rains held off until night time.
Went to see the movie Up the kids enjoyed that. Cory and Debbie got to sneak away to Jekyll Island for the night. The kids and I did some art projects which I did not
manage to get post here before they took them home. The Cat with floaties statue was a gift from Debbie and Cory a few years ago. It always makes me smile!

A visit to the Zoo

We had a great afternoon at the zoo. Our main reason for going was to test out our skills with the new telephoto lens. This photography journey has not been an easy one for this point and shot gal. Taking the setting off of automatic and knnowing what you are doing has totally been out of my comfort zone but I am happy to say that I am finally getting it! LOL I found some great material on Two Peas in a Bucket by Mark and Joanna Bolick which is finially making it click {no pun intended} for me! Happy shooting!

In the Pink Again

I count myself as incredibly lucky to get to spend special time with my grand-daughters. Sarah Beth loves to put on a fancy dress. It seems to empower her to be the princess of all things fun. She just may be a throw back to the fifty's when the ladies of the house wore dresses everyday to cook,clean their homes and take care of their children.

On another day Maggie Beth I had fun picking out flowers to put in the flower pots on her front porch. We put in some lettuce to just in case Peter Rabbit stops by for a snack. She even makes sweeping dirt seem like fun! LOL

Happy Mothers Day

Hope everyone had a great Mothers Day. I had to work but that is okay. I received these beautiful lilies. They came in a box as buds and you add water. Then over the next several days you get to watch them open and perfume the air. So pretty and much appreciated. Love my cards and speaking to all the kids on the phone. That just made my day.

A Visit to St. Augustine

We enjoyed our little day trip to St. Augustine. This time we went in side the Oldest School house and were rewarded with beautiful gardens out back and some fun facts about the school house. We were disappointed to learn that two of our favorite shops had closet. The Christmas Shop and the Far East Imports are no longer open and other businesses have taken there place.

Scrap Space

Here is where all my scrappy goodness happens, my little studio. The other half of this room is a bedroom for my G babies and a place for their toys. I spend most of my indoor hours in this room. It is where my creative juices flow best. I come in here and just the smell of the paper makes me want to create something. One of my none scrappy friends feels overwhelmed when she comes in here, not me. I feel instant inner peace and happiness here. All my treasures are tucked away where I can easily find them when needed. Would I like to have a designer studio with handsome cabinetry? Yes. Would I come up with better designs if I had that? I doubt it.
