As if my stamping wasn't enough to keep me occupied. I recently challenged myself to make my first pairs of socks.

The destination was a car show called Automotion in Wisconsin Dells (about an hour an a half journey). He spent the night before putting the finishing touches on the car. It seems to always be… Continue reading Car Show, End of School Year Outing, and Cards

I feel as though I have neglected my blog, but then again it doesn't seem all THAT long ago since I last posted saying I have been so busy. My children are schooled at home… Continue reading Busy Days, Almost Summer Break, Rain…again?
