The adventures we go through! I'm considering including a paper that tells about some of the pictures I'm sending. Some of them have a very interesting story that goes with them!! One picture that I had taken this week is of myself holding a baby wild barn owl. That was pretty cool!

My frame is crafted & most of the pictures are taken & printed. I'm almost ready to send, but I have a couple pictures I have to print out first! Can't wait until my partner sees!

This is TOTALLY FRIGGIN AMAZING!! My boys would love this! But I think I'm saving the idea for when they're older, say- 7 or 8 yrs old & the "treasure map" can be an actual map leading to an actual treasure in the yard!

I'm not sure about the project name. The kids created their projects in the sewing class that met each month. Her category for the project was "Fun with clothes" since she's still a Primary. They also had kids in "clothing capers", "clothes that click" and "Creative consumer fashion" (that is the one where they purchase their own clothes on a budget instead of sewing. DD did that last year & it was a lot of fun!

We absolutely love 4H. There is so much more to it than just sewing and animals, she's learning photography, cooking, food preservation, art skills, theatre arts, woodworking, gardening etc.... It's amazing! Last year she even performed a solo dance number (at the age of 7) for the 4H talent show, and a skit and a puppet show. It really brings kids out of their shell, thats one thing for sure!

New sendout date - what the heck? Well perhaps I'll get lucky & get yet more cool shots! Last night at sundown it was raining but the sun was shining too. I got a very interesting shot of the sun shining on our big enormous barn & a huge rainbow in the background. But sometimes the picture just doesn't do the moment justice. It was like, take your breath away amazing! I was standing on the railing of the porch 12 feet off the ground just trying to get the right shot. If I had a good ladder you can betcha I would have been on the roof trying to get it just right.

Awesome idea!! My 2 1/2 yo boy and 4 yo boy would love this! You've inspired me to make my two little superheroes their own capes!

Yes, little kids can be like that. When my little brother was preschool age, he wore a dog costume every day for months. We still tease him about it & he's in his 20s now.

My dearest daughter is in 4-H, and just finished performing in the yearly fashion revue! With my help, she created this ruffle skirt using no pattern. We saw one kind of like it on the internet & I remembered having one as a girl, so she picked out fabric and winged it! The skirt part was made the traditional way with elastic waist. We then made ruffles using rope elastic and sewed them right on top of the skirt part. This was the most difficult part, the part that she needed help with.

Here she is modeling her new skirt! Please excuse the over-the-top pose, she is a definate drama queen! (And also the background decorations, the theme was "dream career" and hers is a dance instructor)

She was judged & participated in the fashion show wearing it, and now she has a pretty new rainbow ribbon to show for it!  What do you think?

So I went all over town to various places snapping pictures left and right. Between my trip into town, country photographs, and my trip to Lake Palmer up by Canada, I'm pretty sure I have my 50 (yes we agreed on 50!) But I took hundreds to get there & did a lot of weeding!

NOW I'm brainstorming crafty frame ideas!!

Here is my obligatory weekly comment, I'm snapping away & how to choose, how to choose! How or when do I know who my partner will be? I really want to customize my pictures to his/her tastes!

Awesome! I've never done a swap but have been considering it for a while now. This sounds right up my alley! Just in time for my trip out in the wild yonder! I'm totally in!

This farm animal train cake I made for my two year old's birthday. The train cars & engine were made with regular cake mix in mini-bread loaf pans. The round part of the engine was regular cake mix in a washed-out soup can.

I froze the engine parts & then carved them & fit the pieces together like a puzzle. I placed the cars upside down so the top was flat. I had to freeze the cake a bit and use a frosting knife dipped in hot water to make the frosting go on smooth. The cars & engine are decorated with colored buttercream icing & candies. I placed a farmer on the engine & animals on each car. The smokestack is a large marshmellow.

The tracks are black licorice & wafer cookies, wheels are oreo cookies.
The grass & hay is coconut mixed with food coloring.

If you had circus animals & a little clown, that would be very cute too! This cake made my little boy SO happy on his birthday & guaranteed if you boy loves trains, he'll love this too!
