Dream Catcher Mania

Hi Friends, 
First, I want to take a moment to thank those of you that have stuck it out with me as followers.  I realize that I have not been so active lately with my many family commitments right now, so I am very grateful for your support during my downtime.  While I try to catch up on things over the summer, I would like to share with you my daughter's latest obesssion.... Making Dream Catchers.

For the past month, my daughter has created several of these beauties.  She is very meticulous and her own worst critic, so I was only able to capture a picture of one of them for now to share with you.  They are all very beautiful, but my favorite (of course) is the pink one that she made.  It is gorgeous, and if I am ever able to sneak a picture of it, I will be sure to share it with you.   She is always trying new creative things, so I never know what is around the next corner with her imagination.  For now, I will take in the beauty of her latest treasures until the next wave of inspiration envelopes her.   I hope you enjoy some of what she has created as well and maybe try one of these yourself or encourage your kids to.  She seems to really have alot of fun making them. 

Thanks for visiting with me, and I hope you are all having a wonderful and fun summer.  I also want to wish you all a Happy and safe 4th of July.

Hello again. It's Been Awhile.

Well, things have not slowed down here at all, and I don't guess they will now that summer is here.  I hope you are all enjoying your summer so far.  I have missed you my friends as well as sitting down having a visit with everyone..not to mention hearing from you on my blog too. 
I have a short post to share with you today, because my time is limited for now with family.  I will post much more as summer comes to a close, but will surely pop in with a few posts to to catch up along the way.  Today, I have a card that I made for the Hotspot challenge.  It is a lazer cut challenge, and I have come to find that I am not so good with the cut out images. lol.... I did not realize that I was going to have to construct the hair for this body as well as draw a face on her.  As you can see, this is not a strong suit of mine.  I did give it a shot though, and maybe I will get better at this with some practice.  Have any of you played along with the challenge this month?  It's always fun to see what you are capable of.  If you would like to join along in the fun, pop on over to The Hotspot and enter your project into the challenge.  We would love to see what you come up with.

I thank you very much for visiting with me and taking some time to catch up after my absence.  I hope to be talking and visiting with you all soon.  Take care, stay cool, and have a fun summer :)
