Come on in for a visit...

 
This year I am joining...
 
http://www.mydesertcottage.com/2015/07/welcome-to-where-bloggers-create-2105.html
 
even though I am a little late to the party!  I hope you don't mind.
 
I want to start out by showing you some pictures of my studio from about a year ago.
I had it in a small "bedroom" in the basement.  Cozy, yes. Workable, yes. Enough room, no.
 

 



 
 
 

 
 
 
I was asking myself about  part of the basement that I was going to use as a bunk room for our Grandkids.  I love them dearly but I thought about how often they visit
 to how often I am in my studio.
Guess where my studio is...
and welcome.... 


 
 
 
 
 
With this larger room, I am able to teach classes, have craft time with the Grandkids and spread out my projects.
 
 
The heart that is hanging is something that I want to do more of, Locker Hooking.
I have taught myself and want to do much more of it.  I find it relaxing, kind of how people find knitting or crocheting to be.  (Which I don't)




(I am a Star Wars fan so my family gives me Star Wars stuff)



 
As you can see, I had Butter take the upper cupboards from out of my old studio and place them at desk height and spread them out then add a top.  Now I can use my big table, that Butter build, for other things than a sewing table.
 
 
 
On the other wall is my shelves, full shelves I should say.
As I was moving my things out here all I could think of is "How in the world did all this fit in that small room?!?!?" 





 
My tool box.  It is huge and holds tons of stuff : scrapbook paper, patterns, sewing supplies, stamps, soap making stuff, embroidery floss and supplies, shells, metal bits and pieces, game pieces, canvas, glitter, so on and so on...oh' and it holds my tools.

 
Books to alter.

 
Pinecones to bleach.

 
I have lots and lots of eggs. (this is just a few of them)
I got these from Wal-Mart on clearance for next to nothing. 
 I love them because now I don't have to mess around with plastic
 one and they are easier to decorate.
 
 
 
My this and that's...




 
You can never have enough crayons!
 
Thanks for stopping in for a visit. 
 Now it is time to ...

Yard Sale Makeover

 Butter found this at a yard sale for $5.
I thought why not?  I can use it some where.
So home it came with us.
 
 
I decided it has been a month too long of just sitting there in
our mudroom.  It was time to make it shine.
I love the designs on it..



 
After a clean up and first coat of white paint.
Loving it!!!

 
I let it dry then did two more coats.
When it was all dry, we moved it into
the family room.  I say we because it is
HEAVY!!!
 
What do you think?
 

 
I love it!!!

June....


 
 
 
Just some thing that were going on it June...
garden is planted and growing well.
I am hoping for a lot of tomatoes this year
 so I can bottle my own ketchup, salsa, taco sauce,
 and then just whole tomatoes. 
 I might even look for some more tomato recipes to can.
  Crossing my fingers for lots and lots of tomatoes! 
 
 
I taught a summer school camp,
 Dragon Lore and King Arthur's Court.
  It was so much fun.  I wish I had pictures to show you.
 Sorry.   They built castles, picked a "trade" to learn,
 made a dragon, 
 design their crest, made a sword and shield, built a catapult,
and had a marshmallow war. 
Then I took a class on using a 3D printer.  That was fun and very interesting,
 so much so that I want to get one!
 
This is a little doll house table
 that we used the 3D printer to make.
 
Then on to painting my family/living room white. 
 I was a nice pumpkin orange but Butter
 wanted to add wood to the
ceiling.  The wood he got
 (without my input)
was a blue/grey stain pine. 
Very pretty by itself...very ugly with the pumpkin orange walls!
So now it is all white...
 
 
 
The horse in the middle of the room isn't usually there.
We have our family from Maryland visiting.
So out comes all the toys "Shorty"
 (that is my grandma name) has.
 
One reason they are here is because of
our youngest son's wedding.
 We went to Salt Lake City for about three days so we could take
in the sights.  Temple square being one...



Salt Lake Temple.

 
Butter with one of our Grandsons.
 
 

 
Just a couple of pictures at the visitor center. 
After a day of sight seeing we went back to the hotel and
had some family time in the court yard.


 
These two cousins became friends fast, this is the
first time that they met.

 
The "cool" brothers at Temple Square the day
 of the wedding waiting for...
 
The bride and groom!



 Then back to Wyoming for the reception!
Now I hate to have my picture  taken but I
though I should add this one of
my son and I dancing.
It was a wonderful evening!



The cutting of the cake.  My phone died so I didn't
get the them feeding the cake to each other.
He was very nice and didn't stuff it into her mouth.
As she went to feed him the cake we (my family) yelled
at her to stuff it in his...she did not. 
Then they did what I thought was very nice they served the
cake to their guest.
 
SO did I mention I also made
 the bridesmaids' bouquets and the groomsmen's boutonnieres.
They were paper tulips.
 
This was my June besides all the normal stuff that I have to do.
So glad this month is over!
