Something Different



video
This is a waterfall coming out of our hillside. We don't always have a waterfall, but when you get over 6 inches of rain in 3 days this is what happens. Wouldn't it be cool to have a waterfall like that year round? Even though we didn't see the sun for almost 6 days, I am thankful that now we won't have to be so careful with our well water this year. We have had so much drought that many people locally had their wells go dry.

Rainy days make good creative days.

Sometimes I want to branch out and do something a little different. I had bought these shadow box frames a couple of years ago and hadn't really come up with a use for them until now. I was inspired by the shadow box creations of Stephanie Rubiano on her site: So I Gathered. The first one is my mom when she was little. I am not implying that she was a "smarty pants" but it just seemed to go with the school theme.

The next one is some long forgotten ancestor whose photo I found in my aunts photo collection. I have no idea who she was, but I hope that her expression was only temporary and not how she looked all of the time.
