The heat finally subsided enough to go on a walk tonight.  I'm in a neighborhood where they are still building homes.  While walking we came across some awesome scrap wood that was thrown away!  This is free gold!  I am so excited to get some crafts planned out with this wood.  I have lots of blogs that I love to give me a good start :)

My little K.C. in the background :)


Old project, but new to blog!

I did this project quite awhile ago, so I do not have a tutorial.  Looking at this now, there are some things that I would like to change it up a bit, but have so many projects ahead of this one!  But still wanted to show off a little something!


cricut for your toes!

The following link will lead you to this fabulous blog where I copied the vinyl toe project :)  I have a cricut expression and some vinyl, so I figured I would give this project a go!  I think it turned out cute and can't wait to do more!

Go to craft-o-maniac's blog and submit your cricut toes :)  She will do a post later on to show off the cricut toes!

4th of July

We love the 4th of July! Here is a recent craft I did using my cricut expression and vinyl.  I have many more crafts that I'm rolling out soon that has to do with the 4th of July and can not wait to show how they turned out!

I took 3 wine bottles that I have in my glass reserves box and came up with this craft.  I put the vinyl on the outside and stuffed lights on the inside.  It is so pretty at night! 

As I get more stuff up and going, I'll start joining link parties :)  I would be so embarassed showing off my upcoming blog with 4 measly posts!!!

Looking forward to jumping into the crafting blog world!

What's going on outside!

I have finally taken some pictures of our outdoor flower beds and garden.  I have no idea where May went, and we are almost half way through June!  Not much going on around the house.  We are trying to finish painting the deck, and putting a door from the master bedroom onto the deck, and decorating our new space!  The weather is super hot here already, so hopefully there will be some beach trips soon!

Sorry, I didn't get this one turned around :)

We have had this bush for 3 years and this is the first year we have had blueberries.  Little man LOVES blueberries!

Once we get the pond cleaned up we will get some goldfish in there.  There are about 9 snails right now, but not enough to keep the pond clean.

Part of the front of the house.

We have an hourglass shaped driveway, so we took that opportunity to do a cute flowerbed on each side of the driveway.  These have been here for 2 years, but we just added the rock to it. 

Hopefully everyone is enjoying their summer!

Love from the Spencers!
