A Fresh Look

What do you think of the new design? I love the open, fresh feel of it. The blog navigates a little differently than before, so take a minute to browse and see if you can find your way around. I won't offer my full line of products when I return, so you won't see some of the items I've made in the past. I'm trying to streamline and improve my turnaround time, so hopefully that will help.

We've been BUSY! I had hoped to post more frequently throughout the summer to give you something different to look at when you stop by, but I haven't had much time to sit down at the computer. Here are a few pics of what we've been up to since June.

Fort Worth Science and History Museum. They never outgrow the pretend grocery scanner in the Children's Museum.

The Civil War Museum. I loved this one. Lots of authentic memorabilia and touching personal accounts of the war from both sides. The girls enjoyed the scavenger hunt that encouraged them to read the inscriptions  to find the answer to clues, resulting in a sweet treat from the old-fashioned candy store at the entrance.

 Women's and girls' fashions from the Civil War era.

My big (middle) girl celebrated her 9th birthday.

Father's Day

We're knocking out our "Summer Fun To-Do List". Several more items have been crossed off since this picture was taken.

Remember the Craig's List furniture redo challenge? The whole family is enjoying taking part. I'm pleased (and relieved) to say that this hutch is now in Tatum's room holding her special keepsakes and baby items, sporting a fresh coat of Ballet Slipper pink paint. "After" pictures to come. Now, on to the matching dresser...

This was the funnest craft project ever. Ava made her butterflies fly off the canvas.

Tatum lost her FIFTH tooth!

We're still in the thick of summer activities, and we'll be gone off and on for the next few weeks, but I wanted to check and let you know I'm still here! I hope you're all having a safe and blessed summer.
