There are a couple of interesting things going on right now. I thought it’d be fun to do an update of sorts.
Today is my husband’s birthday. He’s pretty awesome…I mean obviously.I married him after all,right?
The girls and I got to make him a nice chocolate cake- I kinda love their last minute idea of adding fruit snacks. (Although in case you are wondering gummy snacks on cake are just as chewy as they sound.)
My husband started a youtube channel where he shares videos of what he he working on at the moment. He’s a very talented and if you’d like to pick up some tips or just like watching art being created then I hope you’ll check his channel out.
I’m wrapping up my participation in Twinkle,Twinkle’s Summer of Color over at my art blog. I’ve loved participating every week and seeing how everyone interprets the color for the week. It’s been really fun! (That bird above was inspired by mint chocolate chip ice cream.)
I’ve also started making a Smash,Art,Words smashbook for poetspice’s youtube challenge. Everyday of July we will attempt to make a page for our smashbooks and then document them via vlog. I’ll probably be updating weekly as opposed to daily. I’m super excited to be doing this as it’s an oppourtunity for me to do something I’ve never done before(a smashbook) and for me to ease myself into vlogging.
The girls and I will also be doing crafts on my youtube channel in the future. I’ll share our first one with you later this week. It’s not as great as it could be but I hope to get much better with time!
I was asked about how our garden was doing the other day-our garden is pretty much dead. We did have one sugar pumpkin vine survive though and we have these little buddies to ease our pain.
I’m just not gifted with a green thumb, at all. This vine actually came from seeds my kids planted in their mud area. I’m hoping to plant again but closer to the house next time. The sun is just too intense in our yard!
Now for Camp Nanowrimo and Junowrimo…in case you’ve never heard of these they are a writing challenge where you try to write a 50,000 novel in thirty days. I did not get to 50,000 words but I’m still glad that I tried this. I’ll be trying again come November if all goes well. (Si Dios quiere, God willing, my mother would say.)
Those are our updates for now. I plan on combining my other blogs into this one somehow in the future. I have four blogs right now and I think just keeping to one for now would be a better idea.
