Awesome artist Patrick Dougherty

Ames is very fortunate to have this artist come and do his marvelous creations from sticks. We have a park called Ada Hayden (dedicated to the first women who received her doctorate degree from Iowa State) where Patrick Dougherty website: just spent his time creating this wonderful maze out of sticks. He uses cocoons, hives and lairs built from animals also. He does ask for volunteers to help him. Darn I missed it. But now I can go to the park and enjoy this wonderful creation. Here is a few pictures I have taken and my son is in them. My son did meet him and he also received his autograph.
This is inside the maze.

Okay I must say that my man is a keeper. We had our 18th anniversary this past weekend and I couldn't believe I received these gorgeous roses! I don't know if any of you saw the movie "P.S. I love you" but that movie really got me thinking about our relationship. Time can seem so short.

Shrinky Dinks?

I decided to enter a challenge for the Etsy beagles Street team and I had no idea what to do. I read an article online about shrinky dinks. Maybe you are familiar with them but I was not. So I decided to go buy some and give it a try. I thought since it said for kids 5-100 this would be easy. It was challenging just to practice. It was fun watching the plastic shrink in the oven right before your eyes but then the next time I looked where did it go? All curled up. Okay that was not what I wanted. It took me several tries just to get 2 alike. Here is my shrinky dink paw earrings..........
