I know I get excited easily by little things but I just have to say it again. I'm so excited to see baby beans on my plants. Every time I see something new it makes my heart happy.

Last night we got to eat a salad from our garden. It was the first one we've had this season and it was yummy with lettuce and arugula. My son said is it like what the cartoons say you know arrooogah. He brings me such joy with his innocent questions and pleasant spirit. I'm thankful for my boy.

You're Rad

This card for my nephew was so much fun to make. I got to use my Robotz cartridge, Just Because Cards, and a couple different cuttlebug embossing folders. I love the way it turned out.

Tiny Tomatoes

My plants are really doing well now. No more watering issues and we have had plenty of sunshine and rain. I was very excited to see some small tomatoes on my bushes.

My beans have also taken off and doing so well. I put in some supports this weekend so they would have lots of room to climb and hopefully provide us with lots of beans. Green beans are one of our favorites and I'm sure that garden fresh will be even better.

Flying High

For a change of pace I decided to do a new layout for some pics I've been wanting to scrapbook. The shapes were made with my Cricut using the Everyday Paperdolls Cartridge. I also used the cuttlebug embossing folder d'vine swirls. I love the way the clouds came out.

A friend recently gave me a tip about using the markers to outline as I did on the airplane. Instead of unloading the paper after cutting your shape, press load paper again and then switch to your markers and press cut again. Make sure to put a piece of paper under the marker when changing from your blade so you don't get ink where you don't want it. Most people probably know this but it was new to me so I thought I'd share.

First Fruits

I am so excited to be able to enjoy the work of my garden. The strawberries we got to eat were wonderful. My son is very happy to go out and check the plants everyday and tell our neighbors about how they are growing. It's a small start but we are looking forward to much more.

I've started to read through the Matthew Henrys Concise commentary and I began in Genesis. It talks about the curse that was put on the land but not on Adam himself. I'm so thankful that God has not given up on His creation and that He continues to bless us. I know that I am incredibly blessed even when my life doesn't work out the way I want, I know that God is in control and has a plan for my life.
The small amount of laboring I do in my garden just brought that to mind.
Thank you God for loving me and having a plan for me.
