Animal Blocks

Here is another project I just got done with.  Brown animal silhouettes on bright green (they look yellow, but yes they are green).  Here we have a giraffe, elephant, and lion.  These are perfect for babies rooms, hanging on walls or just sitting on a table/desk.  So tell me what you all think.

Oh how I love a farm! The ability to walk out your door and be steps away from fresh fruits, veggies, and flowers.  We are not blessed with this at the moment, but Trent's mother is and we are counting down the days... probably years until we can have the same.  We love visiting her and living on a farm for a couple days enjoying the fruits of HER labor.

My new projects!!!

Since we have moved down to Salem I haven't had a job (don't worry I have one now, but don't start till August). So I have been bored out of my mind and have been thinking of new craft projects that I can do to keep busy.  As most of you know I am in love with photography and am learning new things everyday.  I have used the photos that I have taken to create photo blocks.  It is a new modern way to display pictures in your home rather then always having them in frames.  I adhere printed photos to wooden blocks that have been painted.  You can hang them from the wall with either a ribbon or a hook on the back.  You can also simply stand it up on a desk or table.  Take a look at the ones I have done already and tell me what you think.  I thought it would be a good business along with photography after I graduate and am a mom. 

These are pictures adhered to sheets of metal with metal wire twisted together enabling you to hang the artwork anywhere you please.  Ribbon could also be used.

Fun 4th

So we went up to Gresham for the 4th of July.  Trent went Wheelin' all day with the boys while I helped my mom with flowers for a wedding.  Later we went to Trent's mom's  house for a bar-b- que  and fireworks with the whole Johnson family, well almost all of them.  It was super fun seeing and talking to everyone.

I noticed that I wasn't in any of the pictures.  It's kind of hard to get into a picture when you are always the one taking them.  I will try next time to sneak into one some how.

New Job!!!

Well, it has been a while since my last post, sorry.  Trent and I usually go up to Gresham on the weekends to visit family and are gone.  Well, now we have to stay home on the weekends because Trent and I got called to be nursery leaders for 15 kids.  Oh joy!  They didn't know I have been in the nursery for the past 3 years and am a nanny so maybe it wont be too long till they call us to something else. 
I have also found a job!!!! Finally!  Of course it is a nanny job with a cute little 5 month old boy here in Salem.  I was really lucky to find such a nice family who also pay well.  I start full time in August and am really excited.  I love babies.
I am taking a break from school for the summer, but Trent is going full time loving his medical classes and being on shift at the station.  It is such a relief that Trent loves his school and future career as a Fire Fighter.
