My Square Foot Zoo: Mixed Media Travel Journal
This week was full of party planning and baking. I I didn’t get enough time to upload my photos from my daughters party so I will share those next week. All my energy went into that event this week so I didn’t get much else completed. But I did do a little reading, All New Square Foot Gardening II: The Revolutionary Way to Grow More in Less Space. As I mentioned, we are expanding our garden. This method says that you will get a high yield with less work and less space. That sounds good to me. The general idea is to divide each bed into square foot areas and plant one variety per square foot.
We are planning on tearing out our current garden and putting in 8 new raised beds and expanding the fence. Chickens are hopefully coming at a later date so we will be leaving an open area to place a coop and runs down two sides at a later date. I am excited to see how this turns out. Once the warm weather hits, we can get started.
Zoo Travel Journal
The first few pages of this journal were made for my StencilGirl column in August of last year. Since I never shared them here on my blog, I thought today would be a good day since I recently made a few more pages.
It has been a few years, but back in 2019 we visited family in Colorado. It was our second time vacationing there and we were again in awe of the beautiful mountains. We live in the mountains of PA but the mountain landscape differs from what we are used too.
We just love the zoo in Colorado Springs, Colorado as it is family friendly, clean and a wonderful variety of animals.
All my backgrounds were made using StencilGirl Stencils and embossing powder or paste.
Our favorite place to visit in Colorado Springs is Whit’s End. It is a ice cream parlor taken from the popular audio dramas, Adventures in Odyssey. It is a kids audio program, which teaches them faith building character and values. Even us adults love it. We listen to it every day on the radio. Check it out HERE.
Well, that is all I have for this round of pages. I am hoping to complete the journal sometime this year. Hopefully sooner rather than later but we will see what time allows.
I am joining the Tea day ladies hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. Today I am sharing a tea that I would love to try. I have had several different teas from the Positively Tea Company and have enjoyed all of them. This Organic Green Tangerine Green Tea sounds delicious. It contains Organic Green Tea, Organic Marigolds, Organic Safflowers, Organic Orange Peel, and Natural Tangerine Flavoring.
Happy Tea Day,
