2012 ~ WHAT'S GROWING SERIES~WE HAVE STRAWBERRIES!!

Got tons of updates on my garden coming,
 since it's been a while that I posted. 
 Here are my strawberries when they were babies.  
I have a liitle planter on my deck that I just stuck them in.  


They seem to have done well...
there are strawberries hiding in the back there!


Picked these just in time before the birds discovered them!

Nothing taste as good as homegrown strawberries!  
YUMM!!

I'M BAAAAAAACK !!! :-)

It's been forever since I've posted.  
 I have a confession to make! ... 
I have been in a withdrawal state of mind for about 2 months now!!  
The reason......
Me dear trusted D90 camera WENT TO CAMERA HEAVEN :-(.......


We decided to replace my dear old friend for my birthday with this!
The new D7000!
This puppy is 
"THE BEAST"!


I know they both look the same, but they are not by far!  
This baby has so many more new features! 
 I can't wait to play!    
And now guess what!!!!  
I'm Baaaaaaaack!!
  :-)   :-)


So get ready for some pictures, pictures, pictures!!
Have a fabulous day!

PRIMARY TREATS ~ GOOD SHEPHARD

For my Primary Class in church on Sunday,
 I taught my little Primary Class about
"Jesus Christ is the Good Shephard".
Since the lesson was about SHEEP, 
 I made these little guys for them, filled with marshmallows.
I also had them glue cotton to the white section for the sheep hair.
I used my SILHOUETTE CAMEO to cut out the sheep.
  It was soooo easy!

2012 "WHAT'S GROWING SERIES"~RECYCLED FENCE TO GARDEN TRELLIS

Hi everyone!  Another garden project completed!  And more recycling to go with it.  As you can tell I have a bunch of fences that I have been recycling.  I love turning old thing that I would have thrown away a couple of months ago, into amazing new useful STUFF!!

Here are the supplies I used to build my 
NEW GARDEN TRELLIS!
1. Old Fences
2. Shelter from the SUN!!!
3. Shipping Boxes (I had laying around)
4. Portable Table Saw.
I also used my trusted Porter Cable Combo(I just love this tool!)


1).  Took apart the fences.

2).  Ripped the fences into smaller pieces using the table saw.

3). Used the Priority Boxes for measuring each square
.....I hate to measure, and this way worked so much faster for me!
They all come out "even steven"

4). Here she is almost done.

5).

6).  You'll notice the ugly, orange, temporary fence I have up in the background :-)
That's where my fences came from..hehe.  
(Getting new fence installed this week!)  Yeah!


 7).  Here she is in her new home!

I'll have more gardening updates coming soon!
Thanks for stopping by.
