This kids have been bugging us for about two weeks to go fishing....then the men in our family decided that last night was the night to drag all the kids to the pond to fish. I do not have a pole but I still had a blast watching the kids catch seaweed and bluegils. Then I decided to take my brothers pole and see if I could still cast it out! It was just like riding a bike :)
My neice Jocelyn thought kissing her first fish was going to bring her more fish....I do not think she caught anymore for the evening.
Coy caught about 8 Bluegils yesterday. He was out top catcher for the evening :)
Cayden caught several fish for the night and then he thought it would be more fun to hand with me and try to catch frogs with the net.
Madelyn only caught one fish...she was a little dissapointed. I told her I'd teach her how to use a lure to catch the big ones :)
Kayden and Grace both caught the same fish :) Matt helped them real in a fight that they already had caught so the two little ones could experience rolling in a fish....I think they are going to catch on rather quickly that they were helped.
This is the big guy that I caught (I was the only adult to catch anything other than a Bluegil). I caught him with my tadpole/frog lure. The one below that is belly up had swallowed my hook and worm...needless to day he is fillet in my fridge right now :) All in all we had a fun night!

I have decided to add more things to do in my "now" clean room :)
My friend Pam makes the cutest things for her daughter and posts on her blog. I have seen her polymer clay jewerly that she makes for her little one and I just had to take a stamp at it.
Tonight I just made a what the called a "cane" it was my first attempt to get a "flower" look as per Madelyn's request. Tomorrow night I will bake the beads and make them into a bracelet for her and her sister.

Here are 3 more work areas. I have 2 tables put together here. I am able to work on either side. In the back, near the wall, is a Drafting table. I like having the space to spread out or to have friends over to play in my room!

And while I am at it....a picture of the tent that came a few days too late:
Also, in the last few weeks that I have been MIA we have been beautifying the yard. We have been trying to get our property back into shape since the fire and all the construction. We had a water back up in the yard so it has been dug up so that we could run all new drains. We also got some flowers planted and my litte pond that Matt made me finally has lilly pads growing in it!
Today I saw a poor tattered Monarch Butterfly. It was beatiful to see even if he had been through a battle. I got out my camera and played around with some of it's features. I got a few good pictures.
Lastly, I did get some stamping done. I was in the DORK technique swap and I did a cracked glass card to swap out with everyone. I found a new set of Clear Stamps at Walmart and used them with these fun flowers I got from the SCS Wish RAK group. I also used the Paisley Paper from TAC that matched my flowers. Since I did not have UTEE to do the cracked glass I just used about 4 layers of EP to build up the layer before I let it cool for a while and then "cracked" the EP to look like cracked Glass.Now I am off to work in the studio. I would like to get some updated photos online for all of you to see!
