When we lived in Indianapolis we were 2 hours from home and the visitors were not that frequent. Now that we are on the ocean we have had visitors 3/7 weeks we have been here. I was in Chicago for a week during that time too. My mother is coming next week, then Carla and the kids and Heidi is supposed to come before she goes back to teaching. This past week Scott, Emy and Ben were here. I think it was the first time we have ever done anything with just them. Other family members have always been present. Well let me say we laughed until bedtime! Maxx and Ben wore themselves out playing. Maxx enjoyed his cousin Ben so much he wanted him to sleep in his bed and not in the trundle. Luckily Ben was open to sharing with him. Could they look any cuter? No, I don’t think so.
Now for a piece of craft work. Finally had time to take a few pictures of more recent work. This was a Unity Stamp Co set that was released last month. I believe this was my umpteenth (yes it IS a word) try at using flocking. The oven mit felt like it needed to by fuzzy. It was calling out for flocking. Not to pleased with how it turned out. For reasons unkown the ability to use flocking evades me. I can paint a mural yet I cannot use flocking. Uhhhggg!
The paper collection is from Kaiser. I cannot seem to get enough of their stuff. The variety of collections they have is fantastic. Love, love, love the new materials that I saw at CHA. Their wood products are as varied as their paper. Melissa totally rocks and is a joy to watch. They are an Australian company. Thus, the employees Ozzies too. Well I could listen to them talk all day. What is it about accents? Not only was her demo at CHA educational it was fun too.
