I'm going to throw in the towel and stop making myself crazy trying to catch up! I made these art dolls a couple of years ago and have never used them for anything so I am now declaring them MAY FULL MOON ART DOLL and JUNE FULL MOON ART DOLL.
I've got so many things on my list that I want to do I realized that I get hung up worrying about some things that really should be fun.
I did spend time today, in the studio, working on my JULY ART DOLL. Posting of pictures from anybody still participating is the week of July 26th. Remember to send me your link and I'll post in for all to go check it out.

Congratulations SPAIN for winning the WORLD CUP!

We've always been a big soccer house. Even Riley and Murphy got into the swing of things.

We babysat Riley last night. Mary had a wedding to go to. We decided to take a drive over to Cross Plains to the Culver's restaurant. Riley has probably been to Culver's three maybe four times but she sure remembered that she likes the hamburgers and french fries there. PapaJohn treated all of us to three scoops of vanilla icecream, for dessert.
Riley loves ice cream!

The above pictures are from our drive back home. Riley, of course, fell asleep in the car. I can never get enough of the contrast of the blue sky and the green, that's probably why I love summer so much.



  1. I don't know where you live but I do know that it's absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful photos! Riley's pretty darn cute too!

    No full moon art doll stress is what you told me way back in the beginning, Bea, so your two old-new dolls work for me! I'm still with you and will have a link to my latest doll (June, not July, and I WILL NOT stress about that ;) before Wed. of this week. I love making them, and am grateful for the nudge your challenge gave me.

    PS: Great pics of everything and everyone!

  4. Hi Bea :)
    Love those clouds and Riley's curls!
    And I hear's a shame fun can be tarnished by time restraints...and I'm not even sure if I believe in time.
    Oh! I am enchanted by the CRANE memorial statue, it's beautiful, for sure.

  5. Great pics and it looks like you have a budding soccer star on your hands. :D

  6. Great pics and it looks like you have a budding soccer star on your hands. :D

  7. Love the top photo of the farnmhouse on the horizon. My, what a beautiful part of the world.

  8. Your 2 dolls are gorgeous Bea. I was getting stressed about the things I had committed to doing as well as trying to keep up with my blog. It's so silly, isn't it? I then decided to calm down and not worry if I don't post for a few days. Phew, that's better.

    Love love love the photos of Riley and your gorgeous dog and the fields, so green as you so rightly say. The best is of those lorries I think.
