Home Is Where My Story Begins

Home and Family Friday

On Sunday I shared a few favorite projects from Home and Family Friday. If you missed them, click here.

It has been raining non-stop here. I was planning to share my newly planted flower boxes today, but… well… they’re not exactly planted. I have the flowers and potting soil. Now I’m just waiting for a dry 30 minutes that I’m not working, driving kids around, or at a little league game.

The highlight of my week has been learning how to make collages in Picasa. I’m so excited to be able to do this. A big thanks to my bloggy friends who gave me the heads up on this easy tool!

Since I can’t show my planted flower boxes, at least I can share a few plants from my yard. (These were taken when it was dry out – NOT THIS WEEK!) For the record, I’m not the only one complaining about the weather. The local news has started to call this June-uary.

I can’t wait to see the projects this week! I’m sorry if I don’t make comments on all of the projects. I try to get to as many as I can, but there are books to read to my kids, baseball games to cheer at, and dishes waiting in the sink.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your window boxes. I just planted mine yesterday. I use Picnik to do my photo editing, and love doing collages too. Yours looks really nice!
    Thanks so much for hosting!

    I found you through Hoosier Homemade and I love your blog name!

    I just started a new blog dedicated to encouraging women to record their youth in 15 post or vlogs. I have learned so much about my family through this project, and continue to learn.

    Good luck getting the flowers planted!

    I just learned how to makes mosaics as well. I am using PhotoScape and my first effort was all about spring too. Your photos are wonderful and I can't wait to see your flower boxes.

    Hey Becca, I hope this post is okay to link. I haven't really done much since I've been on vacation but I did make some of these for my daughters too. Thanks for hosting every week.
