I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
One day during cousin week, we made storage bags decorated with pounded flowers. This was a craft I had never tried before.
We picked flowers from the yard and placed plastic bags behind the fabric so the color would not leak through to the back layer of the bags. Another plastic bag went on top of the flowers and we pounded until the color was transferred.
A little cooling off break on the trampoline.
I had to try some designs too.
I used a fine line permanent marker on top for detail.
