Wedding Fan Project

Our daughters wedding is less than six weeks away (yikes!).  This weekend my husband and I are working on hand fans for the guests to use during the outdoor ceremony.  The weather in Georgia is unpredictable that time of year so we are preparing for what could be a steamy event.  Since the color printer and I have issues, Chuck will be doing the printing and I will be doing the design and assembly work.  Below is the inspiration fan we will be using as a guide.  On the back we will have a fill in the blank "Mad Libs" story about the bride and groom. Chuck and his daughters enjoyed doing "Mad Libs" when the girls were growing up. It will give the guests something to do while waiting for the big event.

Have a great weekend! We will be covered with glue and ink.....

Swamp Romp.....

It’s Spring Break here in Georgia. We spent the last few days exploring and camping in the amazing Okefenokee Swamp with our more adventurous camping buddies. The swamp is one of North America’s most unspoiled, fascinating and valuable natural areas. It is the largest, intact, un-fragmented, freshwater and black water wilderness in North America. The swamp covers roughly 700 square miles and is located in the southeastern corner of Georgia. Wildlife flourishes here; more than 400 species of vertebrates, including more than 200 varieties of birds and more than 60 kinds of reptiles, are known to inhabit the swamp.

Okefenokee Swamp, Georgia

The Okefenokee is crisscrossed by over 120 miles of water trails. It is a major destination for wetlands nature lovers, paddlers and boaters. We chartered a boat for an incredible night tour. Without any light pollution, the Okefenokee Swamp is one of the best places in the Southeast to view the moon, stars and planets. The night was so clear; we saw Venus vividly shining down on us and thousands of twinkling stars.

At night, alligator’s eyes shine bright red; it’s spooky to see hundreds of red eyes watching you. Park Rangers estimate that 12,000 alligators live within the refuge. We listened to gators bellowing and a chorus of singing frogs and toads. I loved seeing owls and bats silently gliding overhead.

The only advice I can give about camping in the swamp is this: you can never have enough bug spray!
But don't let that keep you from visiting this magical place.

Happy Camping, Cheers!

Five Little Monkeys.......

Do you ever have a song stuck in your head?  A snippet of the tune keeps coming to mind over and over and over?  I've had a well know childrens song swirling around in my head for days now.  It was triggered by a wonderful cake design by "i Heart Cakes" in the photo below.  I spotted this cute cake while searching for a grooms cake in a DesignBeep blog post featuring 70 wonderful cake designs. Isn't this the cutest cake you've ever seen!

One fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the Doctor and the Doctor said,
"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"
