This week over at the nest.

Hiya everyone, and thanks for stopping by.  This last week has been a long rough one.  Work has been very rough and when I was not completely worn out I have been working on this years Christmas ornament.  I think I finally have the design figured out.  But I can't show you all here yet since some of my family read my blog (hopefully LOL).

I did carve out some time to work on my challenges for this week.  Over at Every Inchie Monday the theme was Pavilion.  My first thought was the pavilions that we used to have family reunions at the city parks.  I just remember my brother cooking the food and everyone eating and talking, kids running around, someone playing music and tons of pictures being taken.  Two of which are so much my favorite.  One is of my daughter who fell asleep in the dirt.  She literally fell asleep while playing.


 This picture is very old, she was about 6 years old, now she is 23!  The other one is a picture of my Mom, me and my siblings.  It was the last picture we all had together.  This is totally us as a family.  LOL



I am the one standing up between my brother Tom and my sister Vicki, my Mom is the one sitting down next to my brother Larry.  As you can tell me and my Mom are kinda camera shy ;)  See that smile on Vick's face?  She is smiling like that cuz she knew better than to stand next to Tom!  LOL  Here is my inchie. 



I used 6 colors of Delicas and I hope that you can tell that this is a light over a green picnic table inside of a pavilion.


Now, over at 2x2x2 the theme is Grass.  You know what, when we moved into our house there was this weird small patch of grass in the front yard, it was yellow in the winter and soft and lush (thistle free) in the summer, over the years it has gotten bigger and I adore that part of the yard.  Best part (even better than not having thistles?!?)  is that it grows slowly and doesn't need to be cut as often! 

So this idea came easily for me.  There was not any other possible thing I could design. 


This Twinchie also has 6 colors of Delicas in it and if you can't tell it is a push mower.  This one is for my Son who really enjoys mowing!  Well, to each his own!  I don't mind it if he does the mowing, LOL.

So that is it for me this week and I want to thank everyone for visiting me and extra thanks for those who leave comments.  I always love to read what you think.  Also, don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to check out the awesome works over there and hey if you are up to the challenges why not join them?  I would love to see what you come up with.

  5. I had to laugh at your daughter falling asleep while playing. I wish I had a camera when my son fell asleep and he went face first into a bowl of oatmeal! I saw it coming and didn't stop it. Bad mom LOL! Great pavilion and I really love that lawn mower. (We have fake grass now....love it!)
