If you follow Love my Art Jewelry, this is going to be mostly the same post.
Last weekend I got to go up to the Grand Canyon of PA for the weekend with my family, my parents and my best friends family.
It was amazing. I love being surrounded by nature, hearing the running water of the creek constantly, and smelling the fresh mountain air.
The first thing we do when we get there each year is to head up to the lookout over the canyon. I never get tired of the beauty!
Then we checked into the cabin and unloaded. It was right down to the creek with the kids and they wasted no time getting wet and muddy.
The next day we got out the tubes, and had fun tubing with the kids
we played on the huge lawn
and had fun just hanging out with each other
The boys caught dinner
I wish I had gotten more pictures, but really, I was too busy having fun.
I already can't wait until next year.
It was a much needed time away, since balancing the kids summer fun, and my work during my busiest time, can be rather difficult.
This week I am right back into bead making and already got a batch of carved beads and cabs done. Hopefully I will get started on some bronze this afternoon. If you didn't already know, there will be a tray sale on my Facebook page today at 2pm. All beads are reduced to make room for new inventory. If you would like to be on my email list so you can hear about these events - you can sign up on my main website welcome page www.stacilouiseoriginals.com
I hope you are enjoying your summer! After the winter we had this year, this is all much needed outside playtime!
