life slows down when.....

I  feel life slows down just a little when you are outside hanging up a load of clothes on the line. I don't know what it is,but laundry doesn't bother me as much when I'm hanging it up out on the clothes line.

   Some people say the clothes line is a thing of the past, and many have laughed a little when they see me doing it still. I don't care. I have fond memories of hanging clothes out with both my mother and my grandmother. I can still remember playing in and out of the clothes hanging on the line.   Now I see my kids doing the same. Nothing beets a good memory!

 While hanging up laundry today, I figured out I didn't have a clothes pin bag. So I decided to whip one up real quick using one of my daughters old shirts.

  Who knew that one quick little project was going to turn into a family project.   Not only was I making this quick little project,but so was my daughter who designed the shirt for me,my son who helped by putting in the clothes pins, and helping me hang it up and take the awesome shot for me!

I just love it when a quick little project gets the whole family involved.  See life does slow down  just a little if we pay attention.

  here is my little project for the day!

Happy Monday!

I just love.......................

   I just love to buy from smaller shops and on storenvy. I really love to buy items straight from people. there is just something about buying  handmade items that I love better than any store bought item. Okay, I do love my computer, and my tv of course. 
    I feel the same way about giving as well. There is such pride that goes into handmade items. I have a friend at work who made me such lovely items for me to give to my loved ones for Father's day I just have to show them off!

   Later this week, I will be featuring  some of my favorite ladies who own some storenvy shops! I've been such amazed by the creativity these ladies have,that I just have to share with you! Look for those post this week!

  Below are the awesome Father's day gifts I'm giving out thanks to an awesome friend!

A week end of Firsts!

This week end has been just wonderful!   The weather has been amazing!   This has been a very fun filled week end for my family!  We have all experienced something for the first time!

  My younger daughter went down her very first water slide! so proud of her! she had a blast!
My younger son  took his training wheels off his bike!  I can't believe how fast they have grown up!

  For me, my first is I learned how to work with copper and made my very own rain chain! Pictures to come!  Oh my other first is my very first sun burn of the summer! Red as a lobster I am!  Had a blast at the pool though with my kiddos!

  All in all I'm very happy and blessed this week end!  Hope everyone has a very relaxing Sunday!

butterflies, butterflies! oh How I love my butterflies!

  I've had this butterfly puncher for awhile now, and just now recently started to use it. Oh how I love it! It creates such pretty little butterflies! I've used it for some recent cards I've made. Which of course I will share at the bottom of this post. 

  There is nothing quite as calming as working with paper. Folding, cutting, inking, and watching it transform into  something wonderful!  It has become one of my great hobbies. while I like to dabble in other crafts, I always come back to my scrapbooking and card making.  
   In the one picture you can see my favorite puncher of the month! 

  I hope you all have a hobby that you can say is peaceful and relaxing!

enjoy my butterflies! Hope you have a great day!
