yes we love wendy crabb!
a special painting for lizzie, we love elephants! you can check out a cool video of the painting here. wendy crabb is the coolest, nicest and most rad artist ever. i highly recommend her! we are hoping for a polar bear painting for emily in the near future... and on another note, here is my neutral doll. stolen from someone somewhere
this was just a first draft and quickie sew job. liz thankfully loves it and embellished it with her own face and clothes (photo to come later). i just drew it out right on the fabric and sewed it up. this i also highly recommend. it was fast, fun and easy!

this weekend is grand council fire, our big end of the year celebration and this year is almost over. three years in camp fire, three years blogging, wow!
down at the beach by their house
decked out in fur
a few more of my grandma, she was something, huh? because emily was the first grandkid and my grandpas first great grand kid, we used rose as her middle name. he always thought that was very special and i am so glad he was young enough to appreciate that. my grandparents always seemed happy and close, also a little wild and daring. it has been a great gift to stumble on to these photos and i cant wait to see more.
we chose weeding the baby trees we planted our first and second years in camp fire (plus the grove of oaks we took over for a wohelo recipient last year)...
a cool moth we dug up (and rescued)
for some reason our little struggling baby oak foamed up when it was watered, crazy but hoping it survives. we put red flags and stakes around every single tree... they are tied up in red bows and ready for camp!
and somehow i lost the right hand side of my blog... i have been working on this for 2 days now, yikes!!!
