I am so excited!! I got my chickens this morning (6 hens and a rooster) - and they are in the new coop Paul built for me for my birthday. Paul did an AWESOME job on the coop and it was so much fun helping as much as I could (which I know wasn't a lot - I'm definitely not a construction worker. . .and if it took everyone an hour to dig a 3 foot post hole - there wouldn't be much fence in the world)! I will try to have a good coop picture posted within the next few days - - Here is the best picture I could get of my Dominique Chickens. They are considered calm, good setters, good layers, hardy - - - pretty much everything I wanted!! I just sat and watched them for quite a while after getting them in the coop. The rooster is VERY excited to have his own batch of hens to himself!! He has been crowing like mad - which I think is AWESOME too!! My neighbors might not be as excited as me - but maybe I'll share some eggs to make 'em happier :-)
Here are some cards I made up recently. The top one I used some old flowers I had taken apart, some old buttons and Stampin' Up rub-ons. The bottom one also uses Stampin' Up rub-ons, some thread, Stampin' Up corner rounder, Maya Road Ribbon and scraps from some paper I recently bought - - but since their scraps I can't remember the manufacturer :-)
We decided to set up a separate blog mainly mainly to showcase our hunting along with some hunting stories of our friends. So go check out our new Grissoms Garage blog. We will be updating it pretty regularly when October 1st arrives.
Our life can only be described as a hunting focused family. We spend the entire year with a drive many consider above and beyond preparing for those few moments when flint meets steel or arrows are set to fly. The final product is always worth the countless hours of preparation. Welcome to our lives.
