#383 – All the Good Things – June 18, 2018

I love the sayings in this simple set, “All the Good Things” (pg. 151 – Annual Catalog).  It looks just as beautiful done in a monochromatic color as it does with watercolor.

We had warm, but beautiful weather here yesterday.  Great day to spend poolside.


June Bug took Willow’s (our dog) stuffed bear outside to get some sun and water. 🙂

She also got to try out her new water activity table.  It was a BIG hit!

Later she got dressed up to go to our local fair, “Old Settler’s Days”.

Thanks to Paul at the grill, there was no shortage of food and lots of leftovers for the week.
Hope all of you had a good day honoring the men in you life; whether it be by memory, phone call or in person.

Aaron and June Bug


Paul and his girls


 June Bug and Matisse with my dad.  He reads my blog every day. 🙂

Here is a picture of Paul’s Dad, Bumpa.  He passed away several years ago, but he is always in our hearts.  Father of ten children and I want to say thirty grandchildren.  I lost count.  🙂

Happy Father’s Day to all of the men in our lives who make and who have made the world a better place. #weareblessed

There are many…fishing, love of movies, water skiing, love of animals and most of all, how to stay calm and positive in all situations.

#381 – Around the Corner – June 16, 2018


This was another new set that caught my eye right away in the new catalog, “Around the Corner” (pg. 40 – Annual Catalog).  The balloons are so cute and were created using the Balloon Bouquet punch (pg. 210).



This is a 18-piece photopolymer stamp set.  Some of the images are set up to be two-step.

Fudge always makes me think of Christmas!  My mom makes the best fudge!
