These were delivered to the pool from the invitational Cody swam at a couple of weeks ago for his place in the heats he swam. They are a cool idea, somewhat different. Now I have to figure out how to write on the back of them for what race and his time.
We celebrated my Birthday over the weekend and this was showed up today as part.
Once upon a time we had an easy-up canopy, but afternoon one too many windy days it was done for. This will work out awesome for the beach, park and the soccer season. Plus its a ton lighter and easier to set up than the pop-ups. Stoked!
The backyard tree has been a bit of a state due to the neighbors tree growing into it. They cut back their tree last summer, now it was time to have ours pruned so that it could be healthy again. He took a ton off, but hopefully it will promote growth and health.
Before going down for the day with a nasty headache, we headed out to Green Acres to do some plant searching. With the trees gone in the front yard, we really want to add some plants back in to soften the rocks.
Oh look, another thing made it's way off of Pinterest!
My good friend is a big Dr. Who fan and I pinned this well a long time ago as ideas for the future. Finally I was brave and found some more tutorials and blended them together to create a Tardis wall hanging for her Birthday.
A new technique that I used was printing directly onto fabric. So awesome.
Iron freezer paper onto the back side of your fabric and run it through your printer. The freezer paper stabilizes and thickens the fabric so that your printer will grab it and keeps it from scrunching up.
1" finished squares tiles made up the design, mosaic style.
We've been talking about wanting the Liquid Amber trees out (aka: Spikey Ball Trees) and it happened today. Along with removing the already dead Magnolia tree. Our house and yard look bigger. It's also making the house scream "Paint me!"
Now to research a new tree for the middle of the yard and some bushes and such in the rock garden.
