Ava's Animal Kingdom

They were all wanting some popcorn...

Abey's Monkey Car

Abram played with a car today for the first time, and what's more, he stuck a monkey in the driver's seat!!

Almost done...I have the pages glued and mod podge-d on top...just waiting for the top to dry so I can do the sides. This was not a quick project. It took me forever to get the pages arranged "just so". And then I realized I had them on vertically and had to start over...but I really do love the little sketches...the man climbing up to her window is my fav.

Rainy Friday Project

It was a VERY rainy day today and since my 1 cent book finally came from the Amazon shipper (only had about 200 miles to go and yet took nearly 3 weeks--ARG!)...I decided to finally get my book page canvas goin'. I ordered a little book by Elizabeth Barrett Browning "Sonnets from the Portuguese" and when I laid my eyes on it I could barely stand to rip the pages was so darling. It even had cute little drawings...but alas it is for our bedroom and the only book I had to use, so Ava and I got to tearing. I also used a book about the life of John Newton (think "Amazing Grace") which was enjoyable but not historically accurate so I had no problem tearing that one apart. I used portions of the love story between he and his wife. She prayed for him everyday for eight years that he would be saved and turn his life over to the Lord. Finally her prayers were answered. So "heart touching" as Joe would say...

Boo Boo Wild Dog

She is a wild African dog like we saw at the zoo today. This is her best mean dog face....I think she can do better.
