Making Birdhouses!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have been planning on making Birdhouses for some time now.  We had a bunch of wood pieces left over from trimming the ends off of board when we built our fence.  They are nice boards and I thought that they should not be wasted.  So I decided that I would make some birdhouses and decorate them in some fun ways.

Today Marty and I got them all put together.  We cut all the sections and then did an assembly line to put them together.  I have big plans for the finishing of them.  But for now they are all natural.  I plan on putting wire and beads on them and possibly painting or washing some with a color stain.  I figure I will do as the spirit moves me.  -K

Moving Along Quickly

Wow, it’s almost time for school to start! It’s been such a slow drawn out torture…I mean, such a short summer with the kids! Does it have to end so soon? Before you know it, we’ll be decorating for Halloween!

I can hardly wait!  – T

Polymer Clay Lil’ Boos

The next big decorating holiday coming up is Halloween. You can tell by the way the stores look. My Etsy shop is no different!

I am in the mood to put together some creepy cute things! I made some more pins to go with the other Halloween pins I have.

These are a few of the new guys. They are trying to be spooky but it’s not really working out for them. Maybe they need a home, because without the house to haunt they just look like whiners. I’m just sayin’  – T

Hail Hail, The Gang’s All Here!

I just loved working on this Special Order! Look at all these little octopi-ettes, you can tell they are girls from their flower headbands.

I love the colors she chose, bright and cheery. I’ll be sad to see them go.

They can hardly wait to go, you can almost hear them giggling!  – T

Double Rainbow in the Morning!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Waking up to the thunder, I looked out the window and saw a double rainbow.  I expected to see lightening, but saw a beautiful rainbow which arched over the homestead.  It was amazing. One picture shows a garden fountain made from old pieces of farming equipment collected off the farm.   Needless to say I couldn’t go back to sleep.  But the sun rises are as amazing as the sunsets here in Montana.  We leave tomorrow and I will miss it all, except the mosquitos.  -K

If I Were Backpacking…

Today I dropped off my husband Marty and father-in-law Al to go backpacking in the Mission Mountains.  If you have been following this blog at all, since last summer, I attempted to make a cane of the mountain for the Families 100 years celebration of the homestead.  Well this year we are back again hoping only to get in a hiking trip.  I did not get to go due to my back being out of wack.  So I stayed behind and collected some really nice drift wood.  I hope to turn it into some fabulous pieces.  We will see.  In the mean time here are some mountain shots for your enjoyment.  -K
