I live in the beautiful state of Wisconsin. I'm a wife and stay at home mom of 3 sons. I love to paint, sew, knit, stitch and create. I enjoy selling my creations at local fairs, ebay and here on my blog. When I not crafting I love to decorate my home. I'm always moving furniture, painting or switching things around. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day~*~Leanne~*~
I just got back from Las Vegas...one of my favorite places to go.
This time we stayed for six days.
I know that's a long time but Mike and I needed to celebrate our...
25th Wedding Anniversary!
This is the view from our hotel room. We stayed at the Signature at MGM. This was our first time staying there and I have to tell you it was perfect! From the moment we walked in it had a calming atmosphere and oh did it smell nice.
Our room had a balcony, which was wonderful! It was so nice to sit out there with temps in the 70's when at home it was in the 50's and raining. We did alot of gaming, from betting on horses, football and baseball to slots to craps.
We went to see Frank Caliendo the comedian. If you watch football I'm sure you know who he is. He is even more funny in person. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. We are still laughing at some of his jokes.
We were in Vegas so long that one day we rented a car and took a ride to Lake Las Vegas, Green Valley Ranch and of course.... Hoover Dam.
It's a pretty impressive sight...just thinking how you would even start to build something like that. No we didn't go on the Dam tour but we walked all the way into Arizona. It's a loooong way down...I'm looking for the door Clake Griswald walked out of when he was on the tour.
Now that vacation is over back to the real world...and back to crafting. I have 3 more shows all in November. I also want to put a few dolls on ebay and some things on etsy. This was an outdoor fair I did before I left. It's not the best picture but it was a beautiful fall day.
Jack is the one in the blue shirt and white baseball cap.
Jack found some friends to help.
Notice the scarves...they help direct customers to the sale.
He wanted to offer valet parking but you need a drivers licence for that.
This all started when Jack wanted to have a lemonade stand. He thought why stop at lemonade...I could sell some of my stuffed animals and t-shirts. What about some of my baby books, and old soccer balls.
I just had to pop in to share pictures of the new Annie I made. I fell in love with the daisy fabric and knew I had to have it...I didn't know what I was going to do with it but I had to buy it. I think this Annie is the perfect way to use the fabric. I'm so happy with the way she turned out.
Miller Park is the second ball park built on this spot...I just love this picture of Jack.
It has a retractable roof so we can take any kind of weather Mother Nature throws at us. This was the perfect idea because spring in Wisconsin can look a lot like winter. It's not that fun watching a baseball game in the cold and snow.
Ready to play ball.
Time for the racing sausages...
Polish (2), Brat (1), Chorizo (5), Italian (3) and the Hot Dog (4)
Go Dog Go
Today is Danny Gokey in Milwaukee.
He is singing the National Anthem tonight at the Brewers-Cubs game.
He will throw out the first pitch at the game too.
YES!!!My son Jack is trying a new sport....lacrosse.
Here he is all geared up and ready to play.
This is the first game this team has ever played.
See how shiny and wet the parking lot looks. It's been raining and pouring the whole morning with no sign of sunshine.
It was about 57 degrees and pouring rain for most of the game.
I think the ball is somewhere in the puddle. Well, Jack says he loves playing lacrosse. He said it was the most fun game he has ever played. If you can play the game in the rain, playing the best team in the area, loosing 15-0 and still say I love this game well I guess you do. Jack, I'm just happy you can play something you love. Baseball games start next week...another game he loves playing. I'll be spending most of time at the lacrosse fields and ball park watching my favorite player. See you at the game, Leanne
