~Washington D.C. 2012~

I just wanted to share a few (she took 280 shots) of Hannah's pictures from her Washington D.C. trip this Spring.  By the looks of the pictures you can see she had a great time and I think she is turning out to be a pretty good little photographer!  The shots of the cherry blossoms are gorgeous if I do say so myself.  The kids were so lucky to have been in D.C. at the perfect time for the cherry trees!

That's my girl taking pics of the rugs in King George's Palace, Williamsburg, VA

Hannah thought this was a cute house, Williamsburg, VA
She is right!

Cherry blossoms blooming!

Just beautiful!

Great perspective: Blossoms, river and the Jefferson monument

The Capital Buildings Rotunda

There she is in front of the Capital

Arlington Cemetery

I thought this was really cool, this was taken from the bus!

Pentagon Memorial for September 11th

Fords Theater, the famous balcony!

These were just a few of the places the kids visited while in the D.C. area and as you can see my son didn't take one photograph!

I hope you enjoyed these pictures, I know I did!

"You are my Sunshine"

Here is a really easy way to do a transfer onto fabric.  Guess where you do it?  Right through your inkjet printer, who would have guessed you can put fabric through your inkjet printer.  I never did!!!  I first saw this technique (If you really want to call it that) on the blog "Under the Table and Dreaming".  I had to try it out.  so this is how it goes...

You will need cardstock paper, thin fabric, spray adhesive ( I used what I had on hand from Joanne's-Tacky Spray)  and something to transfer.  I used the "You are My Sunshine" graphic that was used on "Under the Table and dreaming" blog.

1. Cut your very thin fabric to the size of the cardstock.  Mine was 81/2 x 11.
2. Spray the cardstock (In a ventaliated area) with the tacky spray.  I just went along with the directions        on the can.
3. Place the fabric carefully on the cardstock.
4. pull up your graphic on your printer and select "Print".  I did a test print on regular printer paper just to make sure the graphic would print correctly.
Make sure the fabric is placed in your printer the correct side up so it will actually print on the fabric.
*Note: You don't have the reverse the print doing it this way!
5. Voila, it should be perfect, now you can frame it.
6. I used an inexpensive black frame from Ikea.

I have included the graphic as a jpeg for you to use (courtesy of "under the Table and Dreaming")

I hope you all give this a try.  It's fun and easy peasy!

It's time for Milk & Cookies...

I had to share this darling idea for a party.  It's a Milk & Cookies baby shower party!  I ran across this from a blog I follow called "A Thoughtful Place", where Courtney the author of the blog saw the idea and shared it from the blog "Our Daily Obsessions"  .  I am trying so hard to figure out how or who to throw a party for so I can do the "Milk & Cookies theme.  I love it, it is adorable and looks delicious!
Please enjoy the pictures, I know I am!

Doesn't this make you want a Milk & Cookies party too?

I am having fun getting ready for the BUNNY to come, I hope you are too!

It was time for the big Daddies birthday and I had to get some photos because we had so much fun celebrating!

Here are some pictures:

I can't wait to celebrate the next birthday!!!
