 Photo is of my son putting a flag down next to a headstone of a fallen veteran.

Ok so my son and his troop were at the Cemetery Friday putting down flags for all those who served in the service or were veterans buried there. I decided to take some photos while I waited for him to get done. Got quite a few photos but these are the only few I have that I was able to take after they put flags down. As I was way ahead of them. My husband is a veteran of Desert Storm and I think there are many who should be honored for there service who don't get the recognition they deserve. So salutes and hats off to those of you out there. I took all the photos in black and white.
Well I think I may have lost my mind. I had actually forgotten what my blog was called and had to locate the link in my Facebook account. I can't blame a blonde moment though as I am only running on 1 hour of sleep for almost 48 hours now. Hate those nights you can't sleep and toss and turn no matter what you do, then your only home for 2 hours before dinner and bed, exhausted I would begin to use. Only up late tonight as trying to help my son get his stuff ready for a camping/hiking trip for the weekend as the weather changed from warm weather to snow. I will be posting again soon. Most likely in the A.M or early afternoon. have some photos to share with all of you that i took yesterday, at a very nice cemetery where veterans and those who served resting in peace, had flags placed next to there head stones. Ranging from the revolutionary and on. Unfortunately some of the very old stones were buried under growth of weeds and hard to find so didn't actually get to see the oldest one. There is so much history behind all those soldiers that none of us know about, and I am sure every one of them could have told a story worth listening to.

Since it is a little after 2 a.m. I am headed to bed and hopefully will post more on here tomorrow. Night everyone.

ok forgot about this one. this was just a side craft from everything thing else. My daughter wanted to make something for her Aunt Donna. We knew she liked Chickens, so we went hunting for and image of a chicken and all i could fins at the store was material with a lot of farm animals on it, which worked out better than i thought it would. We just glue sticked the the Popsicle sticks together. Then used a 1in. whole punch on card stock and mod podge the chicken to it. Then usedthe jewels from a scrap sticker set for the tips and a glitter paint (not glitter gel or pens), it dries much faster and looks great on projects.She did a lot of the painting and glitter, turned out better than i thought it would as we were just winging it. lol

Well Hello everyone! been awhile I know, said was gonna post sooner, but I am a bit of a slacker when it comes to my blog. Out of site out of mind kind of thing, and life gets going and things and time just speed by quickly. Anyways, I did a lot of creating before Christmas which tied up a lot of my time. Made a lot of toilet paper roll ornaments/ flowers which turned out rather nice, and bubble rock magnets. Both were rather easy, the flowers was mostly very slow on the time painting and drying. The rocks was mostly waiting for the glue to dry. But I made a lot of them. I gave them as gifts and kept a few for myself. Will share some photos once I remember my account info for photo sharing site. lol Been to long since been there and have no clue as to where I wrote the info down. I am sure I am not the only one who has done that. lol So look for photos in a few days. hugs to all and have a great night and a beautiful morning/day!!
