I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Growing in Unity - Day 5

OH!!!  How sad.  My last post.  Christmas in July has come to an end.  I know that Friday is the 1st....but I'm writing this post on the last day in July...so it still counts LOL.

Here is a peek at my Friday project from WAAAAY back when I was a GIU girl.  Friday, August 12, 2011 - My Growing in Unity Project Day 5

Now here is TODAY's project.

This is Charlee Girl.  Watercolored using watercolor pencils of all sorts.  The ice was topped off with "Waterfall" Stickles and then I added some cute dimensional embellishments.  The snowman wants to join the fun.  LOL.

Thank you so much for following me and commenting on my projects.  I had fun doing the Christmas in July theme.  I hope it gave you ideas and inspiration.

Make sure you leave your comment.  I will be picking a name tomorrow (Saturday) and announcing it some time in the later afternoon.  Take care and have a GREAT weekend.
