Fun and easy project!


You can get these kits from Wal-Mart...they should pay me, huh? It's very easy, only $5 and hopefully when all is said and done you have yummy herbs! It comes with the tub, soil and seeds! You actually have enough seeds to plant elsewhere if you like!

We bought 3 kits: Oregano, Italian Basil, Thyme
Sweet Peppers, Mini tomatoes, Lettuce
Sweet Basil, Parsley, Chives

I'll let you know how they turn out...

Yesss!!!!

I honestly didn't know who would win, but I am so glad that it was Kris! I am sure many people are surprised...it won't matter, Adam and Kris will have excellent careers!

Watchin' Idol...


I am hoping that Kris Allen is the next American Idol!!! I am watchin' right now...Go Kris!!! He just rocked a song with Keith Urban! He would make a great country singer. He is a Praise and Worship leader in Arkansas and his pastor is an accountability partner to our pastor! I was actually rooting for Adam at first, but found some things out that deterred my decision...I won't pass it on incase my info isn't correct.

B is for...baby, Bekki, uh Burton...it's been a few weeks since I have done any challenges, so I combined The Pink Elephant challenge with the Cupcake Challenge...

The Pink Elephant challenge was to do a Monogram, while the Cupcake challenge was a sketch.

Tools: Flowers daisy #2 (the small daisy 3x) die, nestabilities square and scallop square, Big Shot, texture plate with the big dots (I used the opposite side and used a stencil to fill it in with chocolate chip marker), and I used the new scallop punch.

Accessories: Parisian Breeze paper, buttons latte, and the "B" is Chip Chatter.

Updates...

I am LOVING being a stay at home mom...However, the mom part will really begin when school lets out for summer and I have a kid 24/7! Yikes! Any ideas on how to keep a 13 year old entertained? I did get season passes to a nearby waterpark, so that will help. I think I have 10 more days of freedom. Right now, though, I am working out, going to a weekly Bible study, monthly scrap class, cleaning house and taking it easy on my swing that I got on Mother's day! I have all kinds of ideas to fix up the house...paint the cabinets, fix the carport, make a portico, put up new shutters, put in new windows, put in central heat and air, replace the doors...can you tell I've been watching HGTV? You know what's really sad? We have been here 10 years in December and we haven't done a whole lot to fix it up. I am secretly hoping someone will just want my house as is, and they can fix it up. But wake up, Bekki!!! I want to move soooo bad and these shows are motivating me to do some work around here. Help me Jesus!

I have some good news regarding Clyde...it looks like we will be adopting him! I am happy that he will have a sense of stability and he/we won't have to wonder what's going to happen...this process should be finished within the next few months. There are so many things that a foster child can't do and this is what really excites Clyde about the adoption. Right now, he can't mow the lawn, ride a 4 wheeler, ride a horse, ride on a boat, etc, etc, etc...but when the adoption goes thru we will be the deciding factor, not the state. Don't get me wrong, I understand why they won't let them do some things, but others??? Oh, and I can't post pictures of him...I can't wait to be able to show him to you all! It's weird that you all don't know what he looks like when he's been living with us almost 2 years! Soon my friends, soon! Many blessings to you all!

Be Still...


I caught this pic after we got done cleaning our church one night! I was in awe...the verse "Be still and know that I am God" comes to mind when I see His art work! God is good all the time and all the time God is good! Have a blessed day!

Here's Johnny....



I had so much fun doing these pages...I cut out the ice cream free style. It made me nervous at first, but I got over it and just did it! I am pleased...

This page was actually not taken on the 6th of May, but I journaled about the 6th. That was the day that Johnny would not get ice cream out of her cute little head! Every time she came into the room from playing in my room or Clyde's she'd say,"Momma, I'm ready for ice cream now!"

My first Scrappin' class...






I decided to go with a 3x3 grid with every other piece being something different...not necessarily a picture. The white embossed squares are just for placement of a picture. My theme was spring...hope you're inspired!
