Today & Yesterday


We returned home from our grandson's today.
It was sad to leave, because we had such a great time.
But as soon as I unpacked and straightened things out here at home,
I got busy!

Last week I purchased a block of Mystery Foam 
after watching Jane Powell's You Tube demo
about printing with this product.
I was really excited about trying it out.
Above you can see a bit of dried Purple Aster from my garden.
I made a Mystery Foam stamp from the 'dead head'
and then stamped it repeatedly on this piece of card stock:

My first stamp was made using this doily

I printed this segment on a notecard.

I also made a stamp from this interesting weed leaf:

more dried asters:

I stamped this one on a piece of white cotton.

these were all too much fun!

In the meantime, I had a pot of vegetable soup simmering away on the stove:

I am now using some of the veggies that I froze over the summer,
hence the green beans in the block of ice.

Two Christmas pictures of our sweet little Charlie:

I think that his first birthday in November
helped him learn how to unwrap presents.
He had a great time!

I always enjoy being asked to put Charlie down for his nap:

If you celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a wonderful one.
If not, hope your day was loads of fun.

I love that Gerrie inspires you! You inspire me also. There was some Magic Foam in my Christmas stocking. My Santa is so wise.:) Your prints are wonderful! Charlie is so cute. I hope he had loads of fun.
