Week 10 DLP

You know that saying "the faster I go, the behinder I get.  I'm guilty of trying to do a little of each artistic thing I'm involved in.
For Documented Life Project I'm on week 10….only a couple weeks behind.
This challenge was to make a list of 10 things about us or 10 things that make us who we are.
I used a sticky backed background paper. I'm making an effort to use up some of my supplies that are taking up space. It quickly became a mess and I ended up with lots of wrinkles and creases.  In my attempt to remove some of it, I ripped the journal page.  Oh well... I decided to just make my list on the next page and let that partially torn page show a little preview.

It's a spring fling!

This is a fun little 1/2 day trip.  I've done it several times.  When my friend Jacki invited me to go, I was delighted.  
Located in Carlsbad, CA, they grow and provide flowers, including the famous Ecke poinsettias, to many retailers.
We took the tour around the fields in one of the tractor-pulled rides.  It's a good way to see all the fields, and it's fun.
Some of what we saw…..
and some more….
Some demonstration gardens…  I loved the watering can with chains of clear marbles made to look like water and the bird house covering a hose bib and faucet.
A few final shots…one of the John Deere tractors.
So we didn't get lost….
And a grand arch of morning glories.
Then we went to Ruby's and had the most delicious burgers with grilled parmesan bread.  Yum!

DLP - Week 9

Yea!!!!  I finally have my house back.  Contractors finished up the two bathrooms Wednesday.  It has only been six weeks since all the work started, but it seems like a year!!
I am posting my Week 9 spread for Documented Life Project.  The challenge was to use something recycled.  I kept this Dietrich's Coffee cup when I knew they were closing their coffee shop biz.  They've been gone for a couple years... maybe more.  I think they may still sell wholesale.  Many people cried when the shops closed.  There were people who made clothing from their burlap coffee bags.  LOL  So this cup was so appropriate for the "recycled item" challenge.
