Seedy Garden People Paper Dolls

I have never "made" paper dolls, so this swap was a bit of a challenge for me.  We had to use vegetables, fruit, and flowers in order to come up with these "Seedy Garden People".  The fruits and vegetables were easy, but trying to fit the flowers in somewhere was the greatest challenge.

I used brads for the four moving parts, which included the arms and legs and then I just secured the head.  The fun part was putting each little person into an actual seed packet, where they will reside until they meet their new owners.

We also gave them names and I used word from the catalogs that I received and put them together to give each a unique name.  There names are, from left to right:
Ruby Red Seascape
Paula Nemours
Sarah Blossom
Alcea Bernhardt

Small Town Fireworks Show

So, you might think that a small town wouldn't or couldn't put on a great fireworks show, however, our little town did a fantastic job at putting on a very impressive show.

It was so hot that the Fire Department had Fire Engines set up so the kids could cool off and have water competitions while doing so.

There were turtle races, questions to answer regarding the United States, hot dog eating contest, and lots of people shooting off their own fireworks.

All-in-all a very successful, hot, and fun 4th of July holiday.  I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday as well.

Back into the Swing of Things!

Last week I was able to whip out some artwork and I feel really good about it.  I was able to get in some trades with people over at ATCs for All!  I plan on focusing on doing some serious artwork and laundry.
