Fashion, Clay, Books, and more...

Thursday, July 29th, 2010
These last few weeks have been rather busy for us.  Amy and I are hoping to audition for our church's orchestra and have spent many hours practicing.  We are also starting a bell choir at the Pine Mountain Club church, and have been going through materials in preparation for that.  Amy also designed another fantastic clay box which I will be sharing soon.

Both Emily and Kelly received some fashion kits and dress models for their birthdays and they have been going to town creating new fashion designs.  Emily had so much fun wrapping the fabric around the small doll and twisting it to make new fashions that she decided to pull out a sheet and wrap the fabric around Kelly to create life sized fashions.

Kelly has gotten hooked on the Mandie mystery series and has talked mom into making regular trips to the library so that she can check the books out.  She has also enjoyed watching the old "I Love Lucy" TV series and loves to run down and tell me what is happening in the episode she is watching.

Another blog that I really enjoy following for my pop-up cards is Extreme Cards and Papercrafting.  I love how Carol can take a design that seems so complicated, and break it down into easy, clear instructions.

I hope that you enjoy these blogs as much as I do!
