Out in the yard

Nothing too crafty going on around here!  We've been spending a lot of time working outside, enjoying the beautiful weather.  Luckily I have my #1 helper with me!

The one thing that grows the best in my yard is mint.  Don't you love the little tags?  Head here if you would like some for yourself! 

This probably seems really weird, but this is the first few shovels of our very own compost!  Isn't it beautiful?  We live in the land of hard sticky clay soil.  It begs for a little compost mixed in every year.  We started our compost bin several years ago, but never took any out until now.  Aside from a half decomposed avocado shell, it looked great!!

Hope you all have great plans for the long weekend.  Our schedule is pretty full, but I'm hoping to fit in a lot of relaxing!  Stay safe!

One Trick Pony

It seems my creativity is limited these days to zippered pouches.  Here are four more I made for teacher gifts for the last day of preschool.  They are all the same - lemon print with small sunscreens inside.  I'm sure teachers always get the same stuff every year, but I figure who can't use another zippered bag?  Sydney was excited to hand them out and they were well recieved.

Oops!  Sorry for the long break.  Here's what I've been up to...

Making cards for thank you's, birthdays, mother's day and graduations.  This seems to be the only picture I took though!

A very fun weekend of shopping and eating with the girls!  This was only the first day!

Enjoying the first of many beatiful veggies from our CSA.

Enjoying the beautiful weather with my girl.

Eating way too much ice cream.  I'm pregnant during the summer, what do you expect? :)
Be back soon!
