I also finished the cascading planter by the side door steps. You just stack pots and plant your plants in the front section. Here I have used a begonia plant at the top, an ivy in the middle, and I think a lobelia for the bottom pot. It really did come out great. I got the idea from a pin someone pinned on Pinterest. What a great site for new ideas.
Two of my sisters and I got together and started working on our new found interest: Quilling. I guess its been around for awhile, but we never felt we could do it. We are all on Pinterest which was showing some amazing designs. My sister, Chris, looked into it and thought it would be a neat skill to add to our cardmaking talents. Here are a few of our beginning shapes. We did end up with some finished designs. I thought they came out pretty darn good... if I do say so myself.

What would Memorial Day be without a barbecue. Here are a few pictures of our day at my sister's home. We had great fun....
