Good morning everyone and welcome to another challenge at Dies R Us!  Since the theme is 'Summertime Fun' I  decided to do a Summertime Garden.  As most of my time is spent in the garden during the summer months, I decided to show you the flowers behind my white picket fence!  A sweet butterfly fluttering through and the sun in the corner beaming down on it all!

What's on My Workdesk? Wednesday #321

Welcome to another international blog hop started by miss Julia.  You can get all the details on her blog by clicking her name above.  We all come together on Wednesday and take a picture of our desk and blog about what we are doing in our world. Next we link it to Julia's blog and then we can visit each other and have a little snoop around everyone's space!

So as you can see there is nothing going on in my creative world right now.  I know it is only the middle of the week but my poor body feels like it is all over but the crying!  I have worked in the garden, worked in the yard, worked in the house and I am just worked out for now.  I just need to sit in a vegetative state and do nothing for a day...or two....or three.  My poor desk looks lonely this morning with one tiny butterfly looking like it landed and went to sleep there. So please forgive me for not having a more interesting photo to share with you.

You can scroll down a bit and see the jars of green beans I have be canning and see what my world has been lately.  I am getting close to the end of the season for my garden and the clean-up has begun.  More hard dirty work but so rewarding and such good exercise for this old woman.  I whine a lot, but I truly love watching plants grow; it gives such a feeling of accomplishment.

So there you have it, a clean desk today and not much hope of messing it up until maybe tomorrow!

July Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop....

Here we are again at the end of another month and I'm here to be a part of another Alumni Design Team Blog Hop for Heartfelt Creations!  I always love to be a part of these blog hops because I love being with the past designers of Heartfelt Creations and believe me, there is some amazing talent among these ladies!

There will be a $25 gift certificate for one lucky person.  You must visit as many of the participating designers and leave a comment on each blog because we never know from which blog the winner will be chosen.

My card is relatively simple as I just made flowers, stamped  a sentiment, did a few die cuts and called it a day.  Heartfelt Creations allows us to make quick and easy cards that are a treat for the eye!

If you arrived here from:  Ujjwal Gupta's blog you are right on track and your next stop will be:  Sarah Miller's blog.

Monday Morning.....

Good morning everyone.  I'm here this morning to share a bit of my life as it has been lately!  Summertime, heat, humidity, more heat and garden...  Not much time to play in my craft room, but come by tomorrow as it is the monthly Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop!

I have been working so hard in the yard and garden and trying to handle the produce coming out of the garden and the heat and humidity and mosquitoes have been very hard to deal with!  I'm an "old" broad and these three things are very difficult as I'm trying to pick produce from the garden.

I'm very grateful for the bountiful harvest this year!  These will be wonderful this winter in soup and as a side dish as well.  These beans are an heirloom bean and each year I save my own seed as it is difficult to find the seeds to buy.  The name is "Turkey Craw".  Don't you think that is an unusual name?  Wonder how they came up with that?  Anyway, I may whine a lot, but I'm always grateful for a good harvest and the ability to have seed to save for next year!

Now the next couple of weeks will be the clean up time for my garden spot.  I will pull plants that are no longer producing and clean the space for next year. A cool breeze would be nice!
