GREEN, ippity

Oh soda can…

As, I was reading the Fisk-a-teers blog ….I can across a tutorial on how to make a soda can pocket. I thought well that would be fun and it’s GREEN and we all know how I feel about that!

So, I set to work this am…when no one was awake ( boys school has still not started). This is what I came up with!

Fall is my favorite season and it is upon us. The leaves are starting to change colors here the temps are starting to drop a little.

I filled my little pocket with dried leaves and a flower the boys and I picked while on vacation at the family farm!

Getting by…

I know it is has been awhile since I have updated my blog! Bad bad blogger…

Ben had his surgery on Friday! It went well!  He is being a stinker and not taking his pain meds and then is a crab apple!

We got our community garden lot planted this weekend…well I should say Joe and Sam did! Ben and I went out for about 20 minutes and then came home.

While we were out at our garden. Ben was the official photography (SMILE). Here are a few of my favorites he took!

I did get to spend a little time in my studio. I made this little Birthday set!

Happy Monday Everyone! Thanks for stopping in!



You got money honey???

The  time of year when you are start shelling out lots of money for gift is fast approaching! Graduation/Wedding season is almost here!

Plus for us USA peeps today is TAX DAY! FUN FUN!  The ippity challenge over at splitcoaststampers was to make a money holder.

Here is what I came up with:

Front of money holder

Inside money holder

I left the inside white so you could easily write your message! All stamps are ippity!

Keep swimming!

“ippity set- Fishy Philosophy”

Sometimes the best life lesson is just keep swimming! Don’t look at those at tempting  you to do wrong! If  those bullies know what they are doing bothers you they will do it more.  The boys are learning some hard lessons this week! I am very proud of  both the ink spot for  not being tempted to wail off and hit those teasing and hitting them. Being a bully is not cool no matter what !!!!!!Very disappointment in the school system that this kind of behavior goes on with out a word being said.

Thanks for stopping in!
