Where has the time gone?
I truly cannot believe that it is the 10th of June. It's the weekend now. I have one more work day on Sunday (the weekend in Kuwait is Friday and Saturday) and then I am officially done for the summer.
There's been more toffee to eat (gone now). (Thanks Leslie!)
More cans to paint (this is how I dry them outside ... and believe me, in this heat, they dry in no time). The temperature today was around 114. One of the weather sites I went to showed a high for the day and then a "comfort level". I found that rather ironic. Even if the night temperature was 87, it showed a "comfort level" of 84. I figure anything above 100 cannot be comfortable, but in the 48-hour forecast, it showed the temperature and then a comfort level of 3 degrees below that. 114 is not comfortable. 111 is not comfortable.
Thanks to Graphics Fairy for all the lovely images I use to upcycle these coffee cans. I have to say though that Maxwell House has gone to cardboard cans, rather than tin, and I'm not sure if it is the decoupage glue I buy here, or the paper I am printing on, or the spray paint I just bought, or the can ... but I'm getting major wrinkles. I just figure it gives an aged patina, RIGHT???!
This little round box used to hold triangle cheese and now it is a pretty little gift box.
It's amazing what you can do with paper and glue.
I've had more pictures framed. Zack did this in art class when he was in 2nd grade. I loved the technique so have kept it for the past 4 years and FINALLY got it framed. In fact, the owner of the frame shop did it for free since it was for my son.
Of course, I did pay for these other 4 pictures. They are prints that were done for one of the banks and they gave them out to their customers for free.
I love the one of the tailor best.
Only a little over two weeks before we leave to the States and still so much to plan and do and buy and pack. Fortunately, after 15 years, I've learned to pack light so actual packing will just be days before travel.
Hope your days are filled with summer bliss and blessings! Tammy
