Don't have much space to grow your   favorite plants? Try building a vertical   garden like this one, designed by Susie   Frazier. Using salvaged wood, threaded   rods and bolts, and a handful of mason   jars, you can construct a simple hanging   planter to add a lot of green to your   game. See original article for instructions.

Creation Museum...

Two weeks ago today our family headed out on a weekend trip...the first trip in a long time and a much needed change of pace for a few days! We went to the Cincinnati area to meet friends that were going that way to finish up their vacation...so we could all go to the Creation Museum together! GREAT FUN!

It is an amazing facility! The management at Answers in Genesis have developed a great museum to communicate how the accounts of the Bible are evident in the world around us. We all enjoyed our visit!

An unexpected item on display...a quilt! :) It is a greatly detailed quilt representing the 7 C's of History.

Here's what was probably my favorite part, the miniature replica displays of the Ark and the life inside the Ark. The great detail that was put into them made them fascinating to look at!



We headed outside for a bit on Saturday (it was a little warmer than Friday) to see the petting zoo...


It was great to go to an educational museum that reinforces the same things we are teaching at home! Looking forward to planning another trip out that way after the Ark Encounter is open! That trip may have to be a whole vacation! :)

Desk Accessory Set...

Last week I made this desk accessory set for a family member's birthday... I had to make them on my old Jenome machine as my newer, fancier :) Singer was in the shop getting fixed. I got the Singer back yesterday...so I hope to be able to see how it is running some time today! But the Jenome did a great job filling in!

As for the Desk Accessory Set, it included a key board wrist rest (with the option of using it as a heat pack too!), reverse-applique leafy branch mug rug, pen cup, and a paper clip cup, which also had some mini post it notes in it...
Beautifying a desk makes the work seem less blah, right?! :)
