Productive Garden and a Brushes Class

A picture says a 1000 words… so you can understand why I haven’t been very busy stamping and blogging! Yesterday I canned 14 qts of beans. This is my mission today…not that I wanted to accept it! I HAVE NO CHOICE!! 10 GALLONS! 10 gallons of green beans! Lucky for me we had several huge thunderstorms pass through this morning so hopefully the garden will be too wet to pick the yellow wax beans!!

Sometimes the strangest things grow in the garden!

WaxPepperDuckI just had to stick a couple googley eyes on this banana pepper! 


Remember a few weeks back I was taking a photo editing course from Jessica Sprague? Yesterday I started another class of hers, Brush*Ablilities. Here’s today’s sample. I’m going to frame it and give to a friend going through a very hard time right now.


Busy for the next 2 weeks as our Champaign County Fair starts Friday and we’re there all week with the llamas!

Thanks for stopping!

Wow! And I was happy that I got 5 dinners out of my 6 little bean plants. You are going to have beans all winter long, and then some! Good Luck at the fair!
