Lots of Life.....

I've been meaning to catch you up with the little things that have been happening in my life and so here it goes.....(it's a bit of a lengthy post)!

Awhile back I was asked by a very wonderful family to make 16 wedding centerpieces for their beautiful bride to be. It was a task that I readily welcomed after hearing and envisioning what she was thinking for the finished look.

I didn't take any pictures of the process for making these crystal trees, but I have quite a few pictures of them at the reception.

16 beautifully glistening crystal trees. It's hard to see the detail of these in my pictures, but in the low lighting of her beautiful reception, these babies glistened and sparkled with a beautiful mix of gold, creme, crystal prisms, and candlelight.

We also got to make the bride and groom their very own communion set that they used during their ceremony...

What else has been keeping me busy? Well, we just ended our VBA at church, it's like vacation bible school, but there is no school in the summer, VBA is vacation bible adventure! ;)

So, now that I am finally home from all that, there is lots of outdoor work that has been neglected....so at a slow steady pace we'll get it done, but here is a little bit of my outdoors both in and out!

We also finished off our softball season with a second place finish over all...I'm very proud of my 2 young ladies...they did fantastic!

So, that is pretty much it in a nutshell. Lots of life in about a month's time that kept us constantly busy and running. And, it is with great anticipation and excitement that we all look forward to a relaxing vaca real soon!
