|Now that's a long hike!|
I found a great book the other day that is right up my alley. It is titled wild. It is a true story about a women who had never been active in her life, but had a "calling" if you will to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, where she encounters just about everything possible, and during her journey "finds" herself. I'm starting today, and I'm going to sit long enough to get into the book, and hopefully, I won't want to put it down!
I have also really been getting into my mod podging, collaging, and scrapbooking. I'm pretty sure the employees at the local craft store are concerned about me, I'm there constantly. They may even pretend to be busy when they see me coming. I'm going to keep learning more and continue to get better at it. I will post some of my creations soon!! :)
I really went out on a limb... my husband and I have been to several National Parks. I got this idea to purchase posters of the parks we have been to from an artist online. They are beautiful, however, I have been putting off getting them framed because it is sooooo expensive. Well, I decided to give it a try on my own. Mind you, the posters are not the typical size of frames you can buy with matting and put them in and your done. So I went back to the craft store and asked someone for help. (She was very helpful.) All I really had to do was purchase acid free paper backing to mount the posters on, cut the paper to fit the glass, and put the frame back together. I was a little nervous about this, but thought I'd go for it. I purchased rustic barnwood frames, and the rest of the necessary materials and I was on my way. Here are the finished products, and I have to say I was very happy and somewhat surprised as to how they came out...
Well, according to my calculations I am 1,350 minutes behind in my reading for the summer so I best get going and begin my book! There are a few other things that I want to accomplish this summer that is rapidly coming to an end.
