Jumpin' June

Yep, you've been busy so far, June.  Just as we thought you would be.  So far this month, we've been to a wedding (hubby was best man, and I was impromptu photographer with my father-in-law)...
Oh, and I made cake toppers for their wedding cake.  The bride and groom for the top and the three girls for the lower tier.
And then there was a four day trip to Bismarck, North Dakota for work.  Ummm... no photos from that trip.  The people were a lot of fun, but I wouldn't say that Bismarck is especially scenic.  Sorry, Bismarck.  I'm sure I didn't see the best parts of the area.

Over the weekend, we went to the aquarium in Newport, KY where Harper got to touch her favorite animal, the sea star.
And I got to stare at the octopus.  Not as long as I wanted to though.  And it was on the move!  So fascinating.
I couldn't help but snap a shot of this spider crab.  There were three in the tank, and they were kind of creepy somehow.  They did seem more like HUGE spiders than crabs in person.
Harper got to visit Mighty Mike, a 14 foot crocodile.  She decided that blowing him a kiss would be better than giving him a hug.
 Harper loved visiting the jellyfish too.  That boy in the background, not so much, I guess.
 And we visited some birds... you can sort of see one in the background.

Ok, next up for me in Jumpin' June is work, work, work (of course) and finishing kits for Art & Soul Vegas.  I leave Thursday!


  1. Aquariums are my favorite place to visit, in a dead tie with art museums. I love the photo of Ms. H touching the sea star! Fabulous. My fav animal at the aquarium is the jelly fish so no touchy for me (sting-sting.) Have a delightful time at Art & Soul!

  2. Hi, I just found your incredibly creative blog. Everything about it is cool, your header, your background, your journal pages, your paper-doll wedding cake . . . and on, and on. I am so glad I found you. I am your newest follower. Please visit my blog and hopefully you will find it a site that you will want to follow, too. Have a great week, Connie :)

  3. I can't believe it, I'm already following you. Well, goes to show that I have excellent taste. LOL

  4. Harper is the just the cutest! Jeez, how can you stand it! Cuteness overload!
