Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday.  I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards and projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.

We have been traveling for most of the summer and I am sooo behind on my crafting. Hopefully I will catch up on my job and crafting soon.


I fell in love with this fast and easy party favor. You could add a sentiment such as: Happy Birthday to Moo or Holy Cow Congrats!


I used the Cute Cow Box (#125846) that I purchased from the Silhouette On-line Store to make this charming box . I used paper from my stash and was done! Of course, my hubby picked the candy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday!

Pacific Northwest Rain Forest Pictures.

My husband Bill still has even more pictures to share. This time, they are pictures from the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park.


Beautiful ferns make are everywhere in the rain forest.


A banana slug makes its way up a tree. They are quite harmless and about 6 inches long.


The Hall of Mosses trail has numerous amazing trees draped with moss. Most of the photos below were taken on that trail.





Every corner of the trail yielded a new perspective of moss, ferns and cedars seemed almost surreal. The trails are easy and short to hike, so if you are ever in the area, I highly recommend visiting the Hoh Rain Forest.

Linda is busy working on new projects will post some soon, so check back for more exciting ideas and projects.

Sunset on the Washington Coast

My husband Bill will be sharing a few beach and sunset photos as I work on some projects for upcoming posts.


One of the most beautiful beaches on the Washington coast is Ruby Beach. The tidal pools and rock spires are beautiful.


Ruby Beach is the perfect place for exploring a winding creek as it flows to the ocean and unique rock formations.


The view of Beach 4 from Kalaloch Lodge is stunning.


We stayed here in the RV/Camping park at First Beach in La Push, Washington. The sunsets never disappointed.


First Beach is popular with surfers. As the sun went down, they would appear out of the waves, seemingly from nowhere.


James and Little James Island are silhouetted in the horizon. 



The last surfer of the evening walks out of the ocean as the sun disappeared on the horizon. Thanks for viewing our photos. 

Please check back soon for new posts from Linda with new and exciting projects.

Simply Organized Sunday…. We are back again!

Welcome to Simply Organized Sunday…SOS for short. Every Sunday I showcase blogs, websites or posts that provide innovative approaches to organizing and designing your craft space as well as other areas in your home.

We just got home from a Fourth of July trip to Yellowstone Park. We parked our travel trailer in a wonderful campground on the Madison River. We are so lucky to be able to take two wonderful trips this summer. And now to get back to crafting and posting videos! This post inspired me to someday add some designs to our camper.


I love a makeover and this camper one is amazing.


This is the before.


I am so impressed by this after.


I love the kitchen too!


This is the before of the outside of her camper.


The outside is adorable and I love the lights!

Be sure to check out Must Have Mom for lots more photos!

I hope you are having a simply organized Sunday and a wonderful weekend.

Summer Vacation Pictures

Hello everyone! We just got back from a two week vacation. A special thanks to my husband Bill for taking these amazing photos and writing this post!


After visiting family near Olympia, Washington, we pulled our trailer to La Push, Washington for some time on the coast. The weather was beautiful with bright sunshine on the waves. Linda's sister and husband joined us for a day on the ocean too.


La Push features a long wide pebble and sand beach, with piles of amazing driftwood. We were so fortunate to find a perfect camping spot for our travel trailer that was literally right on the ocean. In fact, we were right on the beach, just behind the driftwood you can see above.


A small stream flows into the ocean, adding to the brilliant reflections.


If you need to get away from the wind, the driftwood offers a windbreak and many fantastic shapes to explore.


I'm always fascinated with the textures in driftwood and wonder how the rocks get on the wood. Did a human put it there, or did a big storm place it there?


Many complex textures in this driftwood. The rock almost looks like a bird's egg.


It's only mid-day, but plans are being made for an evening beach fire. Thanks for viewing our photos!
