Note and Art - Major Hall

Image
Good morning all. I was working on cleaning out the craftroom a couple of weeks ago and I ran across this... so glad I save this stuff. Written in 1998 by my son! Blogged showing you my candy dish a few weeks ago, well here it is on my desk, full!
Centennial Park Art Fair shows twice a year. Spring and Fall. I have also blogged in the past about Major Hall. This man is amazing with his art.

Just Shooting and Soaking in the Beauty

Image
It's in the air FALL The crisp mornings. Colors. I love the fall and it is just now getting started. Took this pic for my son. He lives in California and unlike Tennessee where he came from, they don't have colors like this with the changing season. Now away from the beautiful colors to a weed I think! But how amazing a shot this weed made. If you look really close you can see a cluster of Boxelder Bugs on one pod.



I think one of these might become a framed pic. Thanks for stopping in,

Silver Piggy

It was Braden's birthday last Saturday and Nana got him a bank for his change. Plain silver bank, $5 at Dollar General. Taped off a section, painted it black and with white sticky letters for scrapbooking I put his initials on the black. Turned out so cute. Thanks for stopping in,

Red Days Before Christmas Plate

Image
I took a charger plate like this one, only red and not metal. Sprayed the center of the plate with chalk board paint.
Plastic crafting Christmas lights,
Some E6000 glue.. (love this stuff)
Gray paint.
And the finished project.
But how would my daughter and the boys keep up with the chalk? A box on the back to hold it....


This should work great! I have a plate holder to sit on the counter. Entering Catch as You Can over on Gail's blog, My Repurposed Life http://pam-lifethroughmyeyes.blogspot.com/2014/11/wooden-pumpkin.html Thanks for stopping in, Pam

Tis the Season......for Birthdays for Me...

Image
Those birthdays for my grandson's range from Sept - Braden Oct. - Caleb and Nov. - DJ. My daughter and mother have birthdays in Dec. But for me the boys are the ones that I work the hardest.. I started when Caleb was born in making his cakes and decorating them specially for him. When DJ and Braden came along I had to do the same for them. This was the 3rd (since Braden is the youngest) request for a Spongebob Cake. Spongebob was excited for the birthday so he jumped out of the water!
Braden loved his cake. Waiting for the gifts so he could start opening them. DJ wanted to help. Both peeking in to see what nana got him. His own little piggy bank. On to the next.
Nana also got him some movies since he is home during the day while the other two are in school.
Over to the play ground. DJ just came off the slide.
Oops....Braden on the ground. At 4 he is still in that running stage, no walking for him!
Caleb showing me how stronge he is.
