I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

Lynsie's camping trip

We saw the forecast for a sunny April weekend, so we loaded up our motorhome and our 18 month old granddaughter Lynsie. Thinking back, we never took our kids camping that young, (but we only had a tent back in the day), and I now I realize why at this age taking them off their regular schedule--well there was no schedule as far as Lynsie was concerned--is challenging to say the least. We were glad when her mommy showed up the next day! We camped at Detroit Lake in the Cascade mountians of Oregon. This is a reservior, and it will not be completely full until mid May, but still breath takingly beautiful!

A true little camper, she claimed her own personal chair upon arrival

She was a bit impatient waiting arround to head down to the lake

More interested in the rocks than posing for a pic with nana!

Oh Gramma, she is a doll! What fun you must have had!! Although I do admit, it nice to see mommy coming up the drive! Ha ha, I love having the grandkids, but I am pooped when they are gone!

It sounds like you had a great time! Lucky girl to have young grandparents and lucky grandparents to have such a doll!

What a cutie-pie! And how brave of you to take such a little one camping.

Oh Debbi, she and you both look so happy and ready to have fun. I don't think there would have been much relaxing on your part, she surely would have kept you and her grandfather on the run!! Beautiful place to be, Char

She's adorable! I live in MT, and can't wait for the snow in the mountains to melt so we can camp too!

She is such a cutie. They are so much fun. I haven't taken the boys on a trip. I have taken the older two out for lunch and etc. I have taken the youngest, but not brave enough to take all three. I don't know about you but they do wear me out.

That little tot is having the time of her life you can tell!!!
I excited about expecting my fifth great grandchild and I am sooo happy. All the grands are grown or nearly grown. Youngest is 15 and 17 so it is about over in that department..and it seems impossible.
Enjoy every single minute..:) I did!

Hi: I am trying to contact you about the blog. Maybe sending me your email would help. I love the "say it with roses" style. My blog is
_http://www.marthasfavorites.com/_ (http://www.marthasfavorites.com/) . I would like you to look
at that. I like the title on mine. I need you to do it all for me. Also,
show me how to work it. I have so much trouble. It is hit or miss with me
and that blog. I need to really know how to work it. Please let me know if
you just need to send me a bill or do I just go on Etsy? Thank you in
advance for helping me. You do not know how great it makes me feel. Will
talk soon, Martha
