A Pinterest Party, Grandbabies and Spring Challenge

Morning everyone!

Spring is still trying to make an appearance in central New York....it was a cool and rainy weekend.  The hubby and I did manage to do a little bit outside on Saturday before the wind and drizzle forced us inside. 

 Our daughter-in-law, Maria, planned a Pinterest Party for Saturday evening. She invited friends and neighbors and we had our choice of three projects to work on.  We also had to make and bring a dish to pass appetizer that we found on Pinterest.  It was a fun time!  We were so busy creating, that I forgot to take many pictures.
Many of us chose to make a terra cotta pot bird bath....here are some pictures of our creations.

Jeanne proudly displays her creation so far.  She's going to stencil on ivy too.  You can sneak a peek at my birdbath in the upper right....once I'm finished with the painting, I'll snap a picture for you.

Some of the gals created paper buntings, which I never got a picture of...but I did get a picture of the mess...lol

We were blessed to see both our grandbabies this weekend too, and the granny pride is welling up, so I thought I'd share a couple pictures.
Peter says "HI EVERYONE - I'm just figuring out that I can control the noises that come out of my mouth and I'm having a blast"

Baby Allison wasn't too thrilled about getting her picture taken yesterday....she wouldn't cooperate.  She is a cutie, but in this picture she looks a little grumpy.  lol 

Lastly, I wanted to remind you all about my 


So far I have about 10 gals signed up for the challenge, but I'd love to have YOU join in too.  No mailing, no hassles, just some creative fun.  Click on the button on my left sidebar to find out more about it.  I am thrilled to have several newbies taking on the challenge, and I'd love to have more of my regular followers join too.

Enjoy your day everyone!
