time again!

How is your summer coming along? It’s hard to believe we have 2 short weeks before Labour Day Long Weekend and before school starts!

I find the summers here in Newfoundland are way too short…by the time it warms up the weather changes and nights are cooler again…thanks goodness for vacations.

In saying that, we have had great weather here this summer for sure, I just wish I wasn’t working so that I could enjoy the sunny days…the weekend just are not enough.

How are the back to school preparations coming along for all you Mom’s?

My oldest is going to grade 7 this year…eeeeek…I’m a little nervous, one minute she’s all sugar and spice and the next she’s a pre-teen and independent.

Crazy….

And the not so little guy is heading to grade 3 – last year of primary….Wow….time sure does fly…

I think I have 90% of the clothes/supplies purchased…we picked up sneakers today

….so glad to have that crossed off of my list.

I cannot believe I had time this week to get a post up…

Things have certainly slowed down on this little old blog of mine these past few weeks.

Summer is such a busy time, with working full time and spending so much time outside I rarely have the computer on anymore. I don’t mind though, I am thoroughly enjoying  the wonderful summer we are having….

….and guess what?….

tomorrow is our 13th wedding anniversary…..

And do you know what I think?

I think, occasions like Birthdays and Anniversaries should be an automatic day off of work, no questions asked….but ho hum, it isn’t….

So it’s back to work for me tomorrow… good thing it’s only one more week until I am on holidays!

Speaking of vacation….

Here are a couple of pics from our vacation last year to Prince Edward Island.

Guest Post: Golf Ball Family Tree from Nap-time Creations

Happy Saturday Everyone…and a big thanks to Emily for Guest Posting with me!
Hi Alderberry Hill readers… I’ve got a super-fab project for you today. A Golf Ball Family Tree for all those men in your life who love golf. .
I’m so excited that Sarah gave me the opportunity to be here today. I blog over at Nap-Time Creations, where I record what I accomplish in the afternoon while my little ones are asleep. I’d love for you to pop over to my profile page and learn a little more about my life as a mom (and foster mom), wife and American girl living in Hong Kong.  Alrighty, now that we are introduced, let’s dive into the project.
We made this project for my Father-in-Law for Christmas and I must give the idea credit to my husband! Together we worked together to make his vision a reality.

When my husband pitched this idea I wasn’t sure we could make it happen. My initial search for golf balls personalized with photos only came up with orders of a dozen… and I didn’t want a dozen of each person! a couple of days later I found this site where you can order just one. So, we found a photo of each family member and sent them off to the company to have the balls printed. Back home we got a piece of 1/2 inch plywood, fabric, felt, and some plain wood golf tees. {our wood was about 2′ x 2′}
If you had a nice piece of wood, you could just paint it, but ours was rough, so we covered it with fabric.
1. draw out (on paper) your tree with enough room for all your family members.
2. cut out the tree trunk from felt and lay on the wood.
3. with a sharp object poke holes where the golf tees will go. Mark through the felt tree onto the wood in each hole. {just realized that the top two photos here already have the holes drilled. Bottom two show holes cut in felt}

After we had marked the holes, my husband drilled them all {and only put two holes in the chair below!} while I made the leaves and did the stitching on the tree.

After the drilling, we glued on the green fabric, then the felt trunk and leaves. We ended up cutting off the tip of each tee becuase they were a little long. You will have to measure to see if you need to trim yours. {this lovely workshop is at my in-laws…}

The tees fit in the hole very tightly so we didn’t use any glue.

It was SO fun to watch  my Father-in-Law open this gift. {who in your life would love this??}
