Summer Bouquet

Believe me, I am taking photos of my life, but there seems to be little time to actually sit down and organize anything, my thoughts, my photos, a blog post.  Where is the slowdown button?  Here it is mid-August already!  Goodness.

Anyway, my son and I made this bouquet as part of a local fund-raiser.  We decided to go with white and yellow, because many of our own flowers are white and yellow and then we went to the flower shop and got more white & yellows to mix into the bunch, plus some greenery.  In this photo you can see the yellow flowers growing off to the side (and we have money plant there too).

My son loved this little project and the end result - I had to tell him mid-way through not to get too attached because we were donating this arrangement!  We went to the Dollar Store to buy some butterfly things which we glued to shish-ka-bob sticks with a glue gun.  Hard to see in the photo, but they are there.  We named our arrangement "Butterflys in the Garden".

Just a quick post this morning.  That is all.  I am going to try to get back into the groove of blogging.  I miss it.  I miss my readers - are you still out there?  Everyone having a good summer?  I want to share our little, daily life tidbits.  It is the small things that make life good.  So there you go - a small project that we were able to enjoy together in order to help our community.  Life is good!

I would most certainly bid on your beautiful "Summer Bouquet" if I were closer. You guys did an excellent job. I have missed your blog entries and seeing your quilts. Life is good and there is a season for everything, now is the season to be with your son, they grow up so quickly, especially when you have to be apart. Enjoy the end of summer.

Yep I'm still here too!

Your son will remember and treasure the crafty time you spend together. Just today my DIL sent me a text of photo of my "craft boy" . He's been making a few things getting ready for the baby and it makes me feel good that the time we spent crafting when he was growing up left an impression and an ongoing desire to create.
