It's quite possibly my favorite week of the summer. The Three Rivers Festival. It's kicked off with a parade, and then there is the chalk walk and the art fair, live bands and Junk Food Alley! Mmmm. Where else can you buy a fried snickers, elephant ear and mozz sticks and top it off with a ginormous soda? I usually weigh 5 lbs more at the end of the week, but it's one week of bliss. There is so much to do in the Fort the week of "TRF" as it's affectionately known. You can be a tourist in your own town and lots of fun things, but my faves are the art fair/chalk walk, the yummy food, the fun activities for kids throughout the week and the jazz under the stars while watching the fireworks.
So we have a fun rest of the week ahead of this. It officially feels like summer now. Today we decided to forego the pool and break out the slip-n-slide. I read somewhere that you can add dish soap to the slip n slide to make it lots faster, so I thought I'd be a cool mom and give it a shot. I didn't think about the negative things that can result from that. As I sat there awaiting the first "Yippee!!" from the kids as they shot down that yellow strip of plastic, instead I heard, "My eyes!! They're burning!" This was a domino effect from each child as they slid down the slip n slide. They got the suds in their eyes! So I guess I'm still not gonna get the mom of the year award, eh? ;-)
Check out this girl. . .she got some serious air! =)
I can't wait to show you the fun lo's and projects I have worked on, but I can't post any of them until they are revealed on their various websites. Haha. . .so soon you will see that I have made time for my fave past time. BTW. . .if you're interested in the funky diptych you can find it here. . .wonky photo mask, and the rounded photo masks can be found here. Hope you're all having a fantastic summer! I have binged on watermelon and canteloupe today! Off to eat dinner with the fam and go to the festival. xo
I am a 30-something stay at home momma to four wonderful children. I am passionate about creating. I love to create art in many outlets and I desire to do so in humble expression to the Most High. May He be lifted up in all that I do from making burnt mac-n-cheese to capturing the beauty of His creation in my scrapbook pages and through the viewfinder of my camera! Please grab a cup of white caramel mocha and join me. =)
