menu plan monday ~ july 3, 2017

Last week went by quickly. I’ve been working on Putz house bases. When the houses are done, the picture will be on the bottom of the base. A little surprise when the house is turned over.

I think I will put a barn on the one with the cowboy and the horse. I especially like the angel. The gold highlights are so pretty! She will get a church. Probably in pale lilac to match her wings and green with the faintest touch of blue to match the background.

I love this card. Isn’t the lighting effect pretty? It has a magical quality to it. I will choose just the right house and will probably paint it in the pinky-red of the mittens and the limey-green of the sweater. The snowflake has opalescent glitter on it, so I’ll use that on the house, as well.

If you have Christmas cards or any greeting cards you are throwing away, please throw them my way! I can always use more. They will be used in craft projects to raise money to support Kenya Mercy Ministries. All proceeds from my Etsy shop go to this ministry, as well. You can visit my shop here:
Cards may be left whole or the fronts removed. No identifying information will be used in my craft projects.

If you’re Stateside, I hope you’re ready for the Fourth! We are looking forward to having our son and his family here. First the parade (do they throw candy and other goodies at parades where you live?), then the fair (rides and funnel cakes!), then home to grill a late lunch. Should be a fun day!

There’s still time to get daylilies, if you’re local. Just let us know. We are happy to make arrangements. All proceeds will benefit the scholarship fund for the presbytery’s summer camp this year.

We don’t have enough of this particular daylily to sell this year, but you might want to make a note for another time. It’s beautiful in its subtle color blending.
