The nose knows

 I'm not exactly sure what it thinks it knows, but you have to admit that this is a pretty cute nose.

Week 2 drawings.

 Today I have the second weeks worth of drawings. This time there are actually 8 because I did two the one day. I switched internet providers and had to sit around while the technician installed everything. I drew while he worked.

These actually uploaded in the opposite order of how they were supposed to be. The last was the first I drew and first was the last one I drew.

 This year the hydrangea are going mad. Both bushes are loaded with buds. By the time this publishes they may already have bloomed but in these pictures they hadn't yet. 

You can't really tell by this picture but maybe if you enlarge it you might be able to see how many are on each one.

Pay no attention to the nasty siding. I need to get out there with the pressure washer and clean it.

Nom nom

 I have a secret to tell you. Gibbs has atrocious manners when it comes to eating. What? You don't believe me? I have proof.

Gibbs will claim that this video is a fake but I was there and saw the whole thing. 
She lies

Birthday card

 Wade's youngest sons birthday is on July 4th. I always send his kids birthday cards so this is the one that I made for him.

And here is the inside. I cut the little rockets on my Cricut. I cut multiple layers and glued them together to give it a little dimension then I colored the top layer with markers.

One a day

 I started doing one drawing a day, every day. I search on Pinterest to find a picture that I like and then I draw my version. I've got quite a few of them now, so until I catch up I'm going to give you a week at a time.

Here is week 1

Out with the old, in with the new

Since I had worked over time when the deli manage was off sick, I decided to splurge and buy something that I had been wanting. For quite some time now I wanted to get rid of the desk that I had in the cave. It's the one that Wade bought years ago and while it was ok, I wanted something different.
This is what I had.

For some reason what I had in mind was wood and metal. I also kind of wanted to go smaller. I found some inexpensive shelves and a plain jane desk. There is way less room for junk to accumulate here and the desk is rather small but I like it. If I need to do any crafting I have a folding table that I can pull out. Plus if I'm using the table it's going to force me to put things away when I'm done. So here is the new look

I purchased some storage containers to put on the shelves. You can see the light blue containers on the bottom shelf. Those are holding my colored cardstock. 
I may tweak this arrangement some but at the moment I really do like this.

Where have all the doodles gone

 It seems like it's been awhile since I've posted any doodles or drawings. I'm still doing them and actually have been sitting down and drawing one picture a night. I will eventually get around to posting them all. Today I have all work doodles. 

First is the ones across the top of my papers.

And then a cat I drew to hang on my table. I usually leave them for the deli manager who works my days off in the bakery but then they hang there for me to enjoy as well. I had flowers up  there but it was time for something new.

Just two cakes.

 Just a couple cakes that I've done recently at work.

This first one I'm not even sure if I did it right. The person who took the order left very confusing instructions. It was supposed to be red white and blue but when I have to mix red myself it never gets red enough. I've been trying to get the premixed red but the warehouse has been out of stock.

Any way, the guy who this cake is for, his mother used to order one for him every year. Ever since she passed away he orders his own. I don't know if he has a birthday party for himself or not but he does like his cake. He almost always has detailed instructions for what he wants. Unfortunately I didn't get to take his order this time around.

This one is nothing fancy. Just an easy peasy cake.

Birthday trip

 Amanda and I had a fun day out to celebrate her birthday. This was on the Saturday before her birthday.

It started with breakfast at Cracker Barrel

I can't remember what it was called but we both had this. It was so good but we could only eat half of what they gave you.

Next was Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree and the Romolo store. This is a local chocolatier. They have a cafe, gift shop and the chocolate store. There is also an outside sitting area to eat.

We got some of these chocolate butterflies and I also bought a chocolate cat for Amanda but forgot to take a picture of it.

Our last stop was Stans garden center.

Amanda picked this plant out. It was quite unique

It was called Dracula

And that was our day. Sorry about the overload of pictures again. I've got lots of material these days and am writing and scheduling far in advance. Right now I'm cramming extra into posts to use things up.

Birthday crafting.

I'm a bit behind on posting these but today I have what I made for my sons birthday and the cards I made for Brad and Amanda's birthdays.

First up is the money cake. This was a free file from Dreaming Tree. It hold 20 bills of whichever denomination you choose. I only put 1's in as I was also giving him a gift card. The hardest part was rolling up all those bills to insert into the holes.

Here is the birthday card I made for him. It's pretty plain. I started with a watercolor background and then added the Happy Birthday that I cut on my Cricut and then some strips of coordinating cardstock.

Amanda's gifts were all purchased and I never thought to take pictures of them but here is the card I made for her.

Play ball

 It's been a lot of years since I've watched kids play ball. When my daughter in law texted me Presley's schedule for her T-ball games I jumped at the chance. This was I believe their second game. I'm going to try and make at least one game a week. They are so cute to watch. I'll let the pictures do the talking. Sorry about so many of them but I just couldn't choose. I left them all small to help with loading time.

Presley got the game ball that day so I asked if I could get a picture with the girl who got the game ball. My son was kind enough to take the picture.
