summer mosaic

Its been a good year for flowers this summer. Most of these were from my garden with a few from other gardens thrown in.

The outside of the shed it done

I finished the outside of the shed late last week. Today Arthur made a place for the bikes and now we have to start working on getting the yard back in order. Its just been so hot to do anything outside so hopefully this week we can get it done

It's quiet here tonight

My family is off on a last minute canoe trip so it's quiet here tonight. Hope the rain stays away and bugs don't bite.

We decided to take a break today from building the shed (just have to put the siding on the front and the outside is done) and took a trip to the beach today. Had so much fun and got some great shots for a summer layout.

Great website for Gimp/Plastic Lacing Instructions

What is summer without summer crafts like plastic lacing? Aaron and Jenna found a great website with videos on how to do plastic lacing. I only knew how to do flat, round and square and had no idea there were other versions until I looked at
