Summer has its perks. Aside from sunbathing, the warm weather allows for more outside time. We’ve been gardening a lot recently. I’m super excited about the different kinds of lettuce that we planted. Now, we can make a fresh salad with my favorite kind of tomato, cherry tomatoes! Here’s a snippet of some of the things we’ve been growing:
I’m excited that our Eversweet strawberries are in bloom; can’t wait for all the sweetness it’ll produce. I know what I’ll be snacking on throughout the year. That’s the best part about Eversweet strawberries; they grow all year round.
As far as as the desert botanical area, it’s looking mighty awesome. We need to finish up the big vertical gardens, but we’re still figuring out what we want to plant in those. Aside from that, I think we have more than enough succulents. Here are some random snapshots:
On top of playing outside, there’s always time to make stuff for inside the home. Our house is looking super green like a rain forest, hehe! Here are some random pictures of the stuff we have on our mantle and media console:
I was asked to do a floral demonstration for about 75-80 people, and so I was required to design a handful of arrangments. Here’s just a few of the ones I made for them:
Last but not least, the dogs have been keeping me extra busy. They think that just because it’s warm outside, they can bug me moreso than they do other times of the year.
…but alas, they’re dogs, and I love them for their annoying tendencies.
I wish the weekend was longer, but then again, I think most people agree with me on that one. This past weekend, my family came to hang out. My mom was totally impressed with my garden. Yippppeee! She told me that my vegetables and herbs were more abundant than hers! Personally, I find that hard to believe since she’s got a major green thumb. I can’t wait to reap all of the fresh produce!
On top of the vegetable garden, we’ve been working on making the patio feel warm and homely. We’re pleased with how everything turned out, and so are the dogs! There are a variety of flowers that add so much color to our place, and the dogs now have grass and bark to run around and play in.
Earlier today, I caught Maui and Hilo in their outdoor toy bin. I guess they were tired of the toys in their usual indoor toy basket. Luckily, I had the camera with me, so I decided to snap some shots of the both of them.
I’m so impressed that both of them get along. Before we brought Hilo home, I was so worried that Maui wasn’t going to be thrilled about the new puppy. Good thing she loves his company. They really are inseparable nowadays.
Recently, I’ve been deprived of scrapping, so I had to play in the scraproom. In the past couple of days, I worked on some DT work and other layouts just to appease my scrapping craze. I’m totally loving my latest layouts.
The first layout was created for the current Scrapping Across the Universe challenge, which requires for contestants to scrap about exciting news you have received. Mine was about moving into our new home.
I also finished a layout for the current challenge over at Scrap Outside the Box. Ally hosted this challenge, and her “outside the box” item was a clothing tag. Play along for a great way to challenge yourself!
Last but not least, the weekly sketch from Kelli over at Pink Sketches is now available. Here’s the sketch:
…and here’s my layout for this sketch:
I love the Jillibean Soup letter stickers on this layout. Don’t you?!
Okay, that’s it for now. I’ve got to get back to planning. I have to look into different caterers in the area.
