Ahhh ... the weekend ...

Yay! I have the weekend off ~ And not only that my September work schedule looks so much better then August. No more 5 or 6 days a week. I asked to be cut back to 4 shifts a week. That should free up a bit of time for designing ... yippee~!!

A fews posts ago (HERE) I showed a dried flower arrangement that I wanted to try. Well, I cut my Black Eyed Susans and dried then out in between some heavy books for a few weeks. It actually worked not too bad. I then put them in a frame that I had with double glass and this is what it turned out like.



I wasn't 100% satisfied with the results but I guess it wasn't too bad for my first try. I think next year I will be prepared to make a much nicer one. You really have to make sure when putting the flowers between the books that all the petals and leaves are lying flat and facing forward. Once they come out from the books and are dry you really can't change them. Also I should of picked them a bit earlier while the stems weren't so thick. I think next year I will do one with a few other flowers, make it more symetrical and have the bottom line up nicely like a bouquet. But it was really fun to try.

My great nephew is going to be a 1 year old on Sept. 8th already! Wow, that year went by fast. Next weekend is his first birthday bash and it should be alot of fun. I decided it was time to make some kids word art and so this is what went into LLL Creations Dollar Mart today;

It seems that so much out there is pastel or feminine colors. It's nice to see something different. Thanks for the papers!
