Last Day of Preschool

Today Cameron finished her first year of school.
She learned so much, and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher than the one she was blessed with.
Mrs. B helped Cameron transition into a shy little girl that always played by herself, to a 
more outgoing, taller girl that wants to now play with others. 

I'm so thankful that this year was a success.
She is most definitely ready for a little summer break, 
but I know when it comes time to go back to school she will be happy to transition into her new class.

And of course, once again I couldn't decide which photo I liked the best so I'm posting a few to many.

Oh, and I asked her what she wanted to be when she grows up, this morning, and she said...
Rainbow Dash.
Remember the first day of school, she wanted to be...
a Princess.
We will see!

Displaying Artwork

Yesterday I found another roadside find,
but I have to admit it wasn't the greatest find.
A lot of times the things I find are on the side of the road are there for a reason, they're junk.
I happen to see a desk and immediately pulled over, but
I didn't take the time to REALLY look it over.
So, I'm awkwardly lifting this large thing into the back of my vehicle, 
when crash, the entire thing collapses.
What do I do?
Do I put it back on the side of the road, uhh, not after I see the owner staring out of his window.
Oh, how awkward is this?
So, I finish shoving the piece of poop desk into my car, and drive to a dumpster.
But when inspecting the fallen pieces I find this random piece of the desk.
I don't even know what this piece was for, but I had an idea.

What about a place to display Cameron's artwork?
She brings home so much stuff from school, church, random home projects, etc. that I 
don't know what to do with everything. 
So, I still don't know what I'm going to do with everything, but for
now I thought I could display the latest pieces and then box away each piece after.
So, at least each piece of artwork will have it's moment to shine.

I first painted the center part.

 I then glued a clipboard clip onto it.
And if you ever go in search of one, you won't be able to find one.
No one knew what one was, and no one had one.
But I finally found one at Hobby Lobby for $1.50.

Now hang and display the latest artwork.
I wish I wouldn't have painted the board the same color as the walls though.
Oops. I can change that later.

Let the Summer Begin!

I know your probably wondering if I dropped off the face of the Earth.
No, I didn't, but I did finish another successful semester of school.
So that means, I now have time for crafting, sewing, and goodies. Yay!
I can't wait.
Throughout this semester I have done a lot of roadside pickups such as an antique desk,
a wooden chair, a rocking horse, and a few other random things.
I'm so excited to spruce them up, and either sell them, or
make them the latest piece in our home decor.

I have such a great idea for this awesome rocking horse.
I can't wait to start on it.
Check back later to see what I happen to do with it.

And I promise to not leave the blogging world again for awhile.
