I had this picture sitting on my computer since June of the girls ... my Grandlove Bailey (on the left) and her cousin Lily, waiting for me to do something creative with it. I just love those two munchkins in this photo and wanted to make a scrapbook page out of it.
I know ... I'll turn them into little lawn fairies!
A tree background ... some big mushrooms and butterfly wings, a flip and a flop, load everything up to Microsoft Picture It program, a little play with color (which is a dangerous place for me to go - because I'm color blind) and here's what I came up with ~ a 12x12 scrapbook page:
~ my little lawn fairies :)
Lily and Bailey
How's it look... is the coloring okay??
Something happened this morning that bums me out ... a little bit anyways.... my automatic coffee maker took a dive. I only had that thing for 2 years... which seems to be the life span of those things... at least at my house that's about how long they live. So... it's back to making coffee the old fashioned way, on the stove top again with my good old trusty coffee pot that I saved out of the camper when we quit camping.
I can perk up a pot of coffee on the stove top just about as fast as the automatic maker ... and I'm thinking that I don't even want to replace the coffee maker anymore. I go through those things like Tammy Faye Baker went through mascara!
So ... if Dear Hubby is reading this (which I know he isn't ... he thinks my blogging is a foolish waste of time) or if my kids are reading this (I know they do; but never leave me a comment) ~ thinking "now I know what to get Mom for Christmas".... think again. I do NOT want another automatic coffee maker!! In fact, I don't want any Christmas present that represents anything domestic and involving the kitchen ... unless you want to bake me a pie or some cookies :) OR... a HAM!! I LOVE HAM!! Yeah... bake me a ham for Christmas ~ I'll be one holly jolly mommy.
Just thought I'd throw that out there.
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
