My first summer project!

I have been working on my sewing room/art studio since March.  This week I painted a small, three- drawered, chest that I purchased from Goodwill.  I have needed someplace to store my knitting and all my yarn because I have a certain kitty, Mocha, who loves to drag my yarn all over the house!  This usually occurs shortly after I have gone to bed!  Now she can forget about the yarn and I can store it in its own place.  The flowers were loosly patterned off of the rug in the room.  The pink is two shades darker than the wall color.  I learned many years ago that when painting furniture to blend with a certain room, the best way to get a matched color was to use a color from the same "color card" I selected the wall paint from.

Asher, Mommy, and Daddy visit!

My daughter, Suzanne, and her husband and my grandson visited the first week school was out.  What a wonderful start to my summer.  They stopped at my house for a week while they prepared to move to Greenville, NC.  Asher and I took several walks and learned that the fire trucks are out every Monday morning in Noblesville!  So much to see!  Asher climbed in and out of his pool many times but never sat down.  My son, Uncle Carey, Suzanne and Asher enjoyed a bath time together.  Carey is such a wonderful uncle.  These are the "pay back" years.  My children get along so well and having a new child in the family has been such a blessing!  My son is a big marshmallow when my grandson is around.  My heart swells to see them altogether.  My son-in-law worked all week long to build a beautiful table that he sold on Craig's list (a little extra cash for the move) and organize their storage unit to make the move easier.  God is opening wonderful doors for them in Greenville.  They both have new jobs (with benefits) in NC.  I am so happy for them!

The Last Day of School

Hello Maple Glen Families!
Thank you so much for following my blog this year.  I have really learned so much and  I have truly enjoyed posting on this blog.  Please tell me what you'd like to see more of for next year's blog and share with your friends that there is a blog for Maple Glen parents about art at Maple Glen.  I will continue to post over the summer.  These posts will be on a more personal basis as I quilt and make things.  I hope all of you have a joyful and relaxing summer.  Fall always comes too soon!

Most sincerely,
Beth Siminski
