things to do with a can

I found these somewhere the other day and thought "what a cute idea!"  We have tons of birds in the yard so we made them a little feeder for seed and a tidbit basket to help them build their nests.

Cute project to do with the kids.  We painted the cans with chalkboard paint and simply
punched holes in the side and tied some cotton twine for hanging.

creative mojo

I've been in a bit of a creative slump, unable to start or finish much.  I've decided though that I am going to start scrapbooking again.  I am shamefully waware that my last two kids have zero scrapbooks beside their baby books!  So yesterday I started on this book for a special someone who isn't here yet ;)

I also finally finished this!!

and plans are in the making for a play blanket...

Emmy and I made her a new rag doll yesterday...she named her Holly...

She almost went to school with her this morning, but she
didn't fit into the bookbag!  The kids have track and field day today at school...hoping the rain stays away until they are done!!

Our little duckies are getting bigger and bigger everyday!
I had to make a quick run to Walmart last night to get a bigger tub for them!
boy are they messy!!

and despite all that creative work, I made room for some faith reading :)

what have you got your hands into today?
