About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Nancy Drew Shadow Boxes

I have loved revisiting Nancy Drew.
Sharing her with these precious young ladies has been an absolute joy!

                                 On our last class we created shadow boxes.
             Pictures and objects were chosen to help them remember 
            The Mystery of the Brass Bound Trunk, The Mystery of
            the Moss Covered Mansion and The Quest of the Missing

                              It was so fun to see what they came up with!
             One sweetie brought sand and seashells as there was an 
             island with buried treasure.

                 This young lady brought small animal figures from when
           her big sister was a baby!
           There were wild animals in the Moss Covered Mansion...

                               Please excuse the mountain of fabric in the 
                    Just waiting for a minute to create something fun.:)

                       My cutie used sparkly gems (found in Brass Bound 
               Trunk and Missing Map) and a lock (Brass Bound 

                     Sheet music was from Missing Map, too!  I also love 
               the charms she brought for her shadow box...

           This little lady read the mysteries more times than I did!  It 
        was a real challenge to stump her on our trivia challenges.:)

                         I am going to continue to re-read the mysteries.

I hope the other detectives do, too.
I will miss them...
but I am sure we will be solving mysteries together again soon.
