Friday Foto Friends

Hooking up with Ms. Debbie for Friday Foto Friends today.

My week has flown by. Between work, one day that I was sick and feverish and slept 15 hours and two days with three of my beautiful grandchildren, I have been busy. But I did manage to start some of the crafts for my new Children's Church room. I nixed the idea of the accordion fold rosettes for the fruits of the spirit display. I realized you need to fold 6 pieces of 12 x 12 paper to make one rosette...and I needed 9 so that means 54 times of folding sheets. No thank you. So I saw an alternative and tried one with that for a sample.


Not sure I like it so I'm still trying to figure what to do. So I took a deep breath and tried to concentrate on other options because I loved the accordion pleated style and it hit me...PARTY CITY! I bet they carry to kind that come like a fan and you fan them out and then clip the sides together. So I went on line and sure enough they have what I want so I will be heading there on my day off next week to get those. And they have tons of patterns or solids to choose from. So excited now.


But I was happy with how my prayer pail turned out. Even got the prayer sticks done so the kids can pick one out to pray.


And I am super excited about the class rules. I got two of them done last night before I had to cook supper and do dishes and fold laundry. But I am loving how they are turning out. These little people from the scrapbook store are addictive to craft with. I still have 6 more to do. I found the little conversation bubbles at the Dollar Tree.


I took my three youngest grandbabies to Splash Country all day Wednesday. We did make your own pizza night for supper and vegged out with popcorn and Hershey's bars for a snack while we watched Lego Batman (which was adorable) and Monster High Electrifying (which I am a sucker for any Monster High movie). Thursday we went to the movies and saw Cars 3. Best Cars movie yet. We somehow managed to get a selfie before going to the movies which is hard to do when they get the giggles and my arms are barely long enough to stretch out, but I couldn't have been happier with the results. A lot of love and a lot fun captured for eternity in one simple snap of the camera.


Afterwards, we went to Walmart and Alexis was looking at a board of magnets. I spotted this one and cracked up. They didn't get it at first until I said that sea shells are whole with two pieces but the tide ends up splitting them in two. So I said look again. And Alexis got it because she is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan and sings the theme song when she watches it. One part says "heroes in a half shell. Turtle power." Needless to say that we became hysterical in Walmart over turtles in a half shell....right up until Colby & Shelby saw miniature Wonder Woman and Batman figurines. 


Last night, I had a Thirty-One party on Facebook. In looking for pics to put in the party, I found this adorable picture and fell in love with the whales on the bags and zipper pouch. I need a new beach bag before my next trip so I think this is what I'm going to get.  


I also thought this combo was really cute. 


Well, there you go my Friday Fotos. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

What a great idea to use those little pinwheel thingies from Party City. I started to go in there on my jaunt to the big city of Sevierville yesterday, but it was raining when I came out of Hobby Lobby, so I headed on to Ollie's (not where I wanted to go, but Jack needed me to pick up something for him there). They have some of the neatest things. Can't wait to see your room when you're all finished. You've got a great start on some really neat things...love the prayer sticks in the pail. Neat idea!
