Summertime Flurries

Breakfast ~ Overnighter

This summer has been a flurry of activity! Looking over my calendar we've had events at nearly every weekend. A recent overnighter with my WOW ladies was a blast. My dear friend Melanie D and I planned it together. Last minute adjustments to our plan came up of course and as often happens God works out all the bumps :) Melanie D taught our ladies how to make fabric flowers created from her fabric stash. We used our Sizzix Big Shot and Stampin Up Bigs Die "Fun Flowers". The variety and creativity was simply amazing!

We also made some Journals and our resident Graphics Designer Carol G created the design for our covers. The rest was done with designer papers, the Cinch was used to bind our creations. Our devotional time gave inspiration and refreshment...the topic... Abiding in Him. The journals turned out to be the perfect thing to write down what God spoke to us over the weekend.  

Sandwiched in between birthdays, visits from friends, and memorial celebrations and last goodbyes the days of summer are slowly slipping by <sigh>. With all the celebrating it has given me lots of opportunity to be creative since I delight in personalizing the cards and gifts I prepare.

I thought I would show you a few of the fun things I have made while hanging out down in my craft room. {Like the potato chip commercial I just can't seem to  make just one of anything, ha-ha.}

Finally, I'll be getting to hang out with my sons, grandkids, and daughters...yippie! I am excited to see everyone, I love to spend time with my family. Yes.... Arizona is always sizzling hot but as they say, its a dry heat!
