Back to School Blog Hop



Can you believe that summer is already over? September is here and our Kiddo’s are going back to school! Welcome to our Back to School Blog Hop. This is such a scary and exciting time for the kids and parents. This is our way to say Thank You to the teachers and to share our special memories. Who doesn’t have boxes and boxes of artwork, report cards, pictures, and sweet valentines from our kids, grandchildren, nieces or nephews? I love to look back at them over the years. And if your kids are just starting out, get a huge box; you are going to need it!

We have some very talented ladies who would love to share their beautiful projects with you.

And of course we will have BLOG CANDY!!!
We have a $20 Gift Card up for grabs to Bear Hugs Art & Scraps http://artandscraps.com/
Please stop by their fan page here, https://www.facebook.com/BearHugsPaperPiecing, to show them some love and thank them for this awesome prize!

If you would like to start at the beginning of the blog hop, go to Pamela’s Blog http://kraftykatstampstudio.blogspot.com/

Here is our line up

Here is my project. I have three kids. My son is a SENIOR in high school, my daughter just started 9th grade, and my youngest daughter started 6th grade. I have had this Chalk Board Decor, forever, and decided to put it on my cabinets, for my kids. This way we can communicate and the lists won't get lost. I'm always wondering when my son has baseball practice or my daughters have music concerts or rehearsals, so this will be great!! I also have one up for items we run out of (like milk!)


Now, we wouldn’t want you to be tardy so climb on the bus and ride on over to Colleen's Blog 

Whether you will be starting out listening to the” Wheels on the Bus” Nursery Rhyme or at the end of the year listening to “The Graduation March”,  get yourself a big box of tissues, walk your baby out the door and take a deep breath. It’s a long 12 years! Have fun and take lots of pictures!
Thanks for hopping with us!

Hugs,
Pamela

The Watermelon Crawl Blog Hop

                              Photobucket

Welcome to The Watermelon Crawl Blog Hop! Who doesn’t like to bite into a red, ripe, juicy watermelon on a hot summer day? Yum!!!! If you drive down South, you can find people selling them on the side of the road, out of their pick-up trucks. I think these are the best, because they come right out of the garden.  You will always find a cute watermelon cut out at a baby shower or wedding shower, we eat them on the 4th of July, and we make sherbet and wine. You will find them in our kitchens; on our walls, curtains and cookie jars. And they are so darn fun to craft with.  Today we have some very talented women that want to share their watermelon crafts with you. So come do the Watermelon Crawl with us! You don’t want to miss anything so the beginning of the hop will start at Pamela's Blog http://www.kraftykatstampstudio.blogspot.com
