This is what I have been working on! So cute and with different papers you can create a mulititude of various thems!

This is a simple composition book, add some papers and you have a cool looking journal.

Don't have those kind of books? Ok then, using simple spiral bound notebooks, cover them with beautiful papers and you can make whatever type of speciality book you want.

Or if you have a few coasters hanging around and a bind-it-all, you can make your own art journal (or diary, etc.) that will make the kids want to have for themselves!

You could even have a party for your tween and guests. They can make their own "books" and embellish them as simply or detailed as they desire!

No matter what you decide to do, have fun with it. Enjoy the time you have with your family. May you have a blessed day!

We all go thru changes in our lifetime. Good, bad, but totally necessary for us to become the person God wants us to be.

These are just a few of the changes we are going through right now (in no particular order):

Destiny and Emily love to scrapbook as much as I do! See how big they are getting! Destiny will be going in the 5th grade! And Emily will be going into the 1st grade! My how time flies!

Tyler is now 16!!!! WHERE has the time gone? I can remember when he was a baby in my arms, and now look! Handsome young man.

Dad died this past April, and it still seems strange not to see him when I go over to Pat's!

You see me in the picture above, I no longer have the long hair, now it is really, really short! I will have to take some pictures of me with my new do!

Whatever changes you may be going through, know that you are not alone. Jesus is with us every step of the way!

Here we are (I was here too, just forgot to have someone take my picture doing some work) working in our garden spot. Last weekend we were busy/rainy to work in it. So thought the time was running out to plant. I told Les, if we don't get it planted by this weekend we will not get anything out of it.

Here is Les and Destiny, she is watering the newly planted veggies and Les is explaining something to her.

I showed the girls how I make a hill for cukes, zuchinni, and summer squash, so they do not get eaten by birds and will not come uncovered when it rains.

Here is Les writing on the sticks what is in each row (cause I tend to forget over time).

Here is Destiny writing what is in the hill. LOL. love the look on her face).

Emmy also helped with the projects here and also wanted a "turn" to water the newly planted seeds.

I hope you all have a safe and happy "4th of July"!
