More Ideas..

I found this really cute hippo at a second hand store, so yesterday I planted chives in him. Isn't he going to be so cute, once he has a hairy back?! :)

A Bit Different

I got these pictures off the computer.

 Since Jessica will soon be moving out of our bedroom, Joanna and I have been kinda remodeling. We are also doing the bathroom. You know how it gets, when you get tired of the same ol' thing. Our bathroom is decorated in fish and shells and I decided to do something a bit different. Being that the walls are purple, and I didn't really want to take the bother of painting them, I decided to work around it. What other colors would go good with purple? I came up with green and then somehow the idea came up of using bamboo along with it. I think the idea was inspired when I found a really cute glass hippo in a second hand store. It was so cute, I just couldn't pass it up. So now here I am, getting ready to decorate my bathroom in hippos, panda bears and bamboo. Like it? I know it sounds a little unusual, but hey, may as well do something a bit different! :) I think it will turn out cute. When I finally get this all put together, I will take pictures and post. As for now, I thought I would post pictures of two picture frames I made.

 I was going to go with posters, but the price was out of my range, so I found some pictures that I liked and printed them off the computer. I then slipped them into plastic sleeves, so that the moisture of the bathroom wouldn't warp them. I cut out cardboard for my frame and then took some bamboo that I had got at Michael's last time I was in town and cut it into small pieces and glued them one the bottom and the top of the frame. I cut longer pieces and glued them on the sides. I then added a string to hang it on and I had two really cute pictures for practically nothing. So next time you decide to spend money on things to decorate with, use your imagination and come up with something cute! :)

Sorry about the glare from my flash. Anyway these are the finished products! :)

A Parting Party for Jessica

Jessica and her maid of honor, Meda.
All of us girls got together and spent part of a day and night together. 
Roseanna, Me and Pal (Adela)
On our way to eat out, in town.
Joanna and Lois
Waiting to be seated at La Casita Mexican resturant.
Meda has a relative that let us use his house that is sitting empty on the weekends on the ranch. It was a lot of fun having it all to ourselves. Jessica hadn't a clue where we were going to be staying, so from Meda's home we blindfolded her and drove her to the house. She was very surprised to see where we had brought her.

Meda and the girls went all out on the food! 

Still surprised!

Lois and Joanna

Matching skirts that Meda and Lois made for us all.
All of us girls.. you can kinda tell that we just woke up. Not to mention that we didn't get to bed till around 3:30 a.m.

"Run she is coming!!" playing tag around the house. Something to wake us up! :)

There I posted... even though I am feeling a little guilty about how long it has been.
Good night you all!
