Hi everyone!
 It has been quite awhile since I last posted...oh my! over a month!
Truth be told, like many other bloggers and artists I have read,seems there has been some sort of "Funk" going around! heehee Not sure if it is the dramatic weather changes or just plain ole a little bit of burn out.
What ever it is, for me I refer to it as this; remember the "Hey Diddle Diddle" Nursery rhyme,where the Dish ran away with the Spoon?
 in my case, it is, my Mojo ran away with my Muse! LOL

So for today,I am going to show you a  bit of early this summer stuff.
Our paperdoll group had a Fairytale/Nursery Rhyme swap.
For my paperdoll to trade,I created two Humpty Dumptys 
 "it's always funny ...

 till the egg falls off the wall
 and cracks open!"
 Silly eggs!
My two  paperdolls went to Jeanne in Washington, and these are the dolls Jeanne sent me
Red and her Wolf

I am working on linking a second paperdoll blog to this one, so you can go in and view all of the fabulous dolls our group players have been creating! Stay tuned!

Early July,three of our grandsons came for our week together adventure,and we had the best fun here,swimming in our newly cleaned pond pool!
 The boys call it the world's biggest swimming pool! LOL
 playing rub a dub dub!
 and they made up this game with Chum,they call "Scratch Dog" LOL
  Basically Monkey in the Middle with Chum chasing the big blue ball. Only he gets too close sometimes and inadvertently scratches the kids with his paws-hence, "Scratch Dog"
 they got the biggest kick out of their game and were in the pond a good 3 hours!
 time to shower up- they love showering when it is outside with heated water!

We had reservations for camping at the same spot as last year,Fair Haven State Park,but had to wait for our site to open up.
So Calem and I were off to the art barn to "play art".
bummer the other two boys are more into their video games and we could not convince them to join us. but we had lots of fun and he learned how to use stencils and mark making tools and different kinds of paints.


Calem's masterpieces!

After all the hard work of creating, time for a chill with Chum

 Time to go camping!

 spending time with Chum
and these two knuckleheads found this board on the way to the private beach carried it all the way!
 but what fun they had, teeter tottering
 and playing...
walk the plank!
 Calem was busy building his city with a "Wall" to keep out,his words-not mine,Trump!
Sure is something when even the young ones are affected by all this nonsense.
He did a great job and when we went back a month later,most of it was still there!
and finally,while the kiddos slept in, I did some camping journaling
 and cut & pasting,while working on new paperdoll designs~ to be seen soon ")

Thanks so much for hanging in through the photos and taking the time to visit me! I do hope everyone is doing well and having a beautiful season, whichever it may be for you!
Peace & Love
