Happy Father's Day

My dad is here visiting and I wanted to remind you all of the Dad's day freebie from a few days ago and my word album that is on 50% off sale I think through Friday. This word album can be printed on 8.5"x11" paper after designing. Click on images to go get it and have some fun!

Friday Farm News

The big news on the farm this week is the hatching of the guineas. Two of the hens were sitting on 2 nests side-by-side with tons of eggs. I heard some peeping a few days ago and Wednesday the hens were off the nest being trailed by a hoard of little peepers. Getting an accurate count was difficult or a good picture was difficult because of the high grass. Some of the little ones were also having a hard time, my guess is the younger ones. I picked up the struggling ones and the remainder of the eggs and put them under the heat lamp we had for the duck and chicken eggs. No luck with the duck or chicken but 3 more of the guinea eggs hatched, mostly the lavender (gray). The photo above is from the morning when I feed them. The most amazing part of the story is that the mothers took this batch of day old chick with legs about 1.5" long on a journey of about 300 yards from the front yard, down the length of the house and out back to the barn yard.

Friday Farm News

Members of my family come here for news, so I am going to try to feature some news weekly.
The dogs seem to be working out. DeDe stays with the goats and we have lost no more animals. Dexter, however, likes the front yard. The animals are getting used to them as seen in the picture above. However the llama had a scare as DeDe charged him while protecting her food dish, so is he back to being very skidish.
Several of the eggs in the homemade incubator are going bad as the hatching deadline approaches. The hatching date for the pigeons is past and we have confirmed that we probably bought 2 girls. The guienes we guessed a hatching date of this week, waiting, waiting.
We ate our second handful of peas from the garden last night. Everything else is flowering out well. We did have some damage from the storms that passed through last week. One of the branches on the tree nearest the house has broken. We did buy a chain saw at the auction, now to figure out the gas ratio, etc.

For Father's Day

I have created another fabulous word album just in time for Father's day. Digitally design with papers and elements from your stash, add your pictures and print on regular paper or cardstock. Fold, glue and decorate (laminate if desired). On sale at K*Joi until the Monday after Dad's day!
To celebrate, I created some ribbons. The first one is a mask, then I got carried away with the samples. Free at 4shared.

June Calendar -

I finally finished up June's clipboard calendar. Several months ago, I started a "build together" kit at K*Joi and used the colors and some of the items suggested to create a small kit which I hope to have up later today called "White Lace and Promises" - I have no mojo toward this kit - sigh. I need to start some others.
But if you still want the calendar a little late - here it is.

I am a bad blogger - just like my journal :(

I have just posted this month's Joi of Learning challenge, I hope it is kinda fun. Scrap without right angle. I'll edit this and post a sample here.
