Earth Day Fair

Yesterday Rich and I attended the Earth Day Fair at the fairgrounds. There was lots of displays about reusing, recycling, etc. We brought home a couple of tree seedlings. One was a Douglas Fir and the other one was a White Oak. I'll plant them in huge planters and set them on the porch.

The Oregon Department of Wildlife always have a huge display where you can build birdhouses, suet feeders and birdfeeders. I brought 2 birdhouses home to build. The kits are already cut and the nail holes predrilled.

I also brought home a bird poster that they have everyday for Earth Day.

6th Published Photo Game

Thank you Gina for choosing me as one of your 10 fellow bloggers to play the 6th Published Photo Game.

I went back to my 6th photo. It was part of a collection of Artist Trading Cards that I made for a Halloween Candy ATC Swap in October 2006. I love the ATC and wouldn't change a thing about it.

I've had a Food Storage Rotation System on my Wishlist for a long time. After dropping another can of food on my foot again while trying to get a can out of the pantry..........I decided to splurge!

The above photo is the system I just ordered. It was on sale at 25% off and had free shipping. Since it was being shipped from Utah I imagine I saved a lot on shipping.

I can't wait to get the new system. Of course, we have to put it together. Sounds like a project for Laurel and Hardy Construction Company. That's what Rich and I call ourselves when we are assembling one of those easy projects. Yep...we're a barrel of monkeys with lots of laughs when we are working on a project.

With the new system I won't have to stack cans 3-4 deep in my pantry....they will always be rotated without having to empty pantry and then stack it again.

Can't wait until my new system arrives and it all put together.

It has been typical spring weather here is Southwestern Oregon the last few days. We have had winds, hail, snow, sleet, and buckets of rain at times. On Tuesday Rich was half way home and the windshield wipers on Kermi quit working. It was pouring buckets of rain at the time. He was on the freeway and the big semi's were drenching the van. He finally made it to our mechanic and they found a clip was broken. It took them almost an hour to get to it and replace it.

I've been trying to organize my crafts....scrapbooking, quilting, crochet and sewing. I ordered a whole bunch of clear stamps from my friend, Lori. She is on the design team for Clear Dollar Stamps, LLC. The website is I just love their stamps. Lori designs several Christian stamps along with others.

SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Don't tell Rich that I ordered some more stamps today! He has his scanners and other hobbies so he really doesn't mind my crafts.

I bought the yarn for the wedding gift I'm making our nephew and niece. They are to be married on June 19th this year. It is going to be a outdoor wedding at a beautiful ranch close to Ashland, OR. Mandy has been talking about the wedding crafts she has been doing lately. The colors for the wedding are soft yellow and soft green. It's keeping Mandy and Zach busy since they both are working and Mandy is going to college.

Well, I better get off this computer and back to organizing. Terrible to get sidetracked so easy!
