Keeping Busy

The only minis I've done lately are for an odds and ends challenge but the deadline for showing our projects isn't until September 1st. So I can't share my project until then. In the meantime I've been busy with "life." My middle is moving into her first real apartment in a week and a half. As you can see, we've been packing. As the apartment is unfurnished, this is only a tiny bit of what we'll be moving but this lot is in my sewing/craft room so I will be thrilled to have it out of my way. :D There will be more mini-ing when I can actually get to everything again.
The garden has been productive and I've added dill pickles to the pantry. Tomorrow I need to do another harvest - sweet pickles are coming soon.
You may remember that last summer we took a family vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida. I still had not gotten the photos printed and scrapbooked. We ended up with a couple of poster frames that were too small for DD's posters so I printed the best photos on my printer and made collages. I still have the option to scrapbook later but we can enjoy the memories now this way.

So I am keeping busy. I have a few ideas for new projects so maybe I will have something to share in the near future.

Have a beautiful day wherever you are!

Several of my 5 moved out last year. Sad but it was nice to free up some space which I turned into my work room. Anyway....
Love your blog!! I love minis and pickles. :D
