We Are Back From Vacation!

Vacations are great, but it's always great to get back home and sleep in your own bed. We had a really good time, and the weather was good. There was one day while we were at Colonial Williamsburg that we had to use our umbrellas but it wasn't a total wash out. I would recommend visiting Williamsburg for vacation. There is so much of our Nations history in that town. That is a picture of the Governor's Palace.
The 3 days we were at Virginia beach was awesome. The ocean is just incredible! A little intimidating as the waves would crash onto the beach with such force that could knock down a 200 something lb. man.
Alright, well now it's time for me to get busy, and get back to the whole reason I began this blog. To basically advertise my bows and clippies. Perhaps you want to know how to make them yourself. I'll do my best to explain how and the best place to purchase supplies. But if you rather skip the fuss, and just buy them, let me know what colors you need and I'll do my very best to provide what you are looking for. Btw, I'm fairly new to this whole blogging thing so bear with me as I'm learning.

VACATION!! *woot*woot*

Sunday after church we will be leaving to go on vacation. I'm so looking forward to a little r&r. We are going to Williamsburg, VA, and then off to Virginia Beach. I've never been to Virginia on vacation, I have been to campmeeting in Richlands, VA, doesn't really count as vacation though. Anywho, we are going to be driving and we decided to break it up a bit, as the kids will probably be ready to tear one another up after having to sit so closely for 9 or so hours. They both have handheld video games they'll be taking, and each have a portable dvd player along with earbuds. I'm going to prepare them each a bag with goodies and things to do. I bought a book at the library that has some car games so hopefully I can keep them occupied and they'll not get to bored. Well, better go for now, I still have lots of house to clean, and we're going over to my mil's for a 4th of July pizza party. It's raining here in Ohio so no cooking out today. That's o.k. At least I don't have to cook, and pizza is just fine with me!

God Bless!

Yay! The rain didn't keep the fireworks from going off! I'm so glad. Even though they are not extravagant fireworks, it's just the spirit of the 4th I guess, and the gathering of friends and family to commemorate our freedom. I love get togethers! Alyssa wanted her face painted, so doodled a flag across her face. She loved it.

My flowers

I absolutely love the Spring and Summer time. Partly due to the beautiful colors of all the blooming flowers. This year I planted quite a few annuals and perinnials. One of my favorite colors is purple, so I bought all purple flower this year. Some impatiens, and petunias.

It's raining =(

It's a beautiful, rainy day here in the heartland. We're supposed to have fireworks this evening, but I'm afraid they may be cancelled due to the rain. I look forward to fireworks every year because we can pop popcorn and sit out in our street and watch them. The local VFW puts them on every year, they're nothing fancy, but it's nice to be able to sit here at home and not have to fight possible drunken drivers out on the roads.

I'm new to this blogging thing, and I'm not quite sure how this all works. Still trying to figure out how to make this blogspot "mine." Adding pictures,'s all so cornfusing. Hopefully in the days ahead I'll figure this out, and it'll look much better. In the meantime, bear with me. If you happen to stumble across this page, and you can help a sister out, please pass along some hints and tips. I'll greatly apprectiate it. =o) God Bless!

Handmade with Love

O.k. So I wanted to create a space for all my "creations." And possibly make a little extra income from them. I love doing all sorts of crafts. So, this is a place that we can share thoughts and ideas on making, creating, and selling our Creative Creations.
