Here is my take on Unscripted Sketches #67. I didn’t deviate much from the sketch, and as for what I did to make it, the photo pretty much tells the story. The only thing I have to say is that I love the sweet little images in Close To My Hearts’ “Beary Best” and “Beary Busy” sets.
Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Outdoor Denim cardstock; Back Country paper packet; Black and Juniper ink pads; Beary Best stamp set; Outdoor Denim and Barn Red Bigger Brads; Prismacolor colored pencils; Gamsol odorless mineral spirits; Blending stumps; Black My Legacy Writers; Dove blending pen; 3M foam mounting tape.
A Slice of Life: Sunday nights are bittersweet as I realize the weekend is about to end and attempt to wrap my mind around the idea of another workweek. Today has been a great day, however. I got quite a bit of cleaning done and washed a load of clothes. Cameron and the boys were here for supper before the little guys went to their mom’s house for the week. With temperatures in the 90s, I was smart enough to use the oven in the Community Room downstairs instead of adding to the heat and making the air conditioner work harder in my personal space.
Recapping yesterday, Bjorn caught his very first fish last night. He was so proud – even if it was just a little rock bass. His Daddy got the sweetest photo that will make a great scrapbook page when and if Grandma ever gets around to scrapbooking again. And Sharli, you were so right about small town life. Small communities are like gigantic families. Speaking of, there are 27 first cousins on Marv’s mother’s side of the family, ranging in age from 48 to 73. Twenty of them were at the funeral. These cousins have children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren, which makes for a lot of weddings, baby and bridal showers, graduations, and an occasional funeral. After a long and painful dying process, yesterday’s funeral was not as sad as the fact that Eddie had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer to begin with. While he was a good guy with a good life that included a wife, children, and grandchildren who loved him and will miss him, he is in a better place now.
If the weather is as hot as what is forecast, I’ll be hanging out inside after work this week – hopefully in my corner. I hope your week is wonderful. I’ll talk to you again soon.
