Rain and Creativity

Rain forecast for today. Again.  The local fields and parks are saturated already but Thursday our local county government declared a lawn watering restriction/ban.  It's still May!!  We can only water every other day.  Well thankfully our backyard is finished in decks, field stone and small gardens so it's just the front we need to do once in a while.  Plus, you would think being near a major lake that our water bills would be lower than St. George. Nope. All of our other utilities are much much lower but water is 25% higher. Go figure!

Creativity. I made a little paper picture frame as a make n take for last Friday nights team meeting.

Here is the project I made.  You can use different card stock and sentiments to make them really custom. 

Well, one of my team decided to be creative with it and she posted this on Thursday on our Facebook Team Page. 

"So I took Denise Donald's makentake one step further today. Instead of scoring every 1" on each side I did every 3/4" so I got a bigger inside image to work with. Watercoloured the background with Melon Mambo, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig and Elegant Eggplant. The branches and flowers are cut out from Seasonal Layers Thinlits. Thanks to Melissa Bellefontaine for the ribbon idea :)"


Now that's being creative!  Beautiful work!!  This is the great work of Andrea Radzick of Hagersville from the mother daughter team of Irma and Andrea. These ladies do great work!! As do all my team. I'm really very lucky to have so many gifted friends as team members. Thank you all!

Thanks for visiting today!
