Celebrate the Fourth!

Happy Fourth of July!  How cute are these Uncle Sam treat containers!

I saved a pin from a SU rep who had made similar boxes using punches, onto my Cricut board since anything a punch can do, the Explore can do more efficiently and in a variety of sizes!  Master J. and I delivered a bunch of them to the OHM shelter for the children.  He told me, a little wistfully, that he liked giving the candy to the children!  Of course, Grandma had extras waiting at home for her DGS and DGDs.   : )

Enjoy your celebrations and stay safe.   Thanks for visiting with me today.   : ) Christine

Craft 'N Chat

My friend C came up last Wednesday to work on the treats for the OHM children.  The theme was July 4th and obviously, I was a tad tardy in getting them out! 

Such a fun morning!  C was soon working my MISTI like a pro, while I learned to use my new toy, the Fuse, to seal the Jelly Beans in the plastic treat bags.  The cuts come from SVG Cuts Sweet Treat Bags set and I resized them in DS to accommodate the plastic treat bags.   The patriotic paper comes from Pebbles, and the sentiment stamp comes from Scrappy Moms.   My fingers were quite blue after curling all that ribbon!

 I didn't notice until I downloaded my pictures, that Cocoa was checking out the treats.   He doesn't usually pay much attention to candy, but he does like Jelly Beans!

Right!  Back to work.  I am giving Cocoa a hair cut but we keep having to come inside to cool down.  This heat is horrible and far too early in the Summer.  DH is prepping the site for my new greenhouse which comes tomorrow.  We'll probably have to fit it with an air conditioner!   Thanks for visiting with me today.  : )  Christine

At the Lake

We're back, rather reluctantly, from a week at the lake.  We had good weather, good fishing, good company and we found ALL of the geocaches on our list!  Here's Sam. our geriatric border collie, waiting for the go ahead to get in the water.  He loves to retrieve sticks from the lake!  Cocoa, on the other hand, thinks that water is just for drinking.

The internet is not the greatest up there and so I took along my Sizzix Big Shot and worked on some MCT lollipop holders for the July treats for the children at OHM. 

It was odd not being able to get projects ready to cut using Design Space, since it is internet based. And, of course, my Gypsy girl has been packed away since February.   I had to resort to the old standby, paper and pencil and I kinda liked it!    Thanks for visiting with me today.  : ) Christine
