The Next Steven Speilberg...

Our 11 year old son, Joseph, has other hobbies besides baseball.  Our house is full of Legos. I mean we have enough to open our own Lego Store.  I find these little buggers everywhere. Joseph has begun to build his own creations and has even borrowed my camera to create Lego Movies.  Here are two of his short films...

He just created this short film today and entitled it "BURNOUT".  Checkout the smoke...

 The video below is his first attempt at Stop Motion Video. This short is called "Legos Drink & Crash"

Eat your heart out Steven Speilberg!!!

Updated Magnolia Stamp Index

Things have been busy in our house lately. It's baseball season once again and our 11 year old son is on a travel team. For those not in the know - this means each weekend you travel around the state for tournaments that can be as little as three games and as many as 5 or more.  This past weekend they played in the largest tournament in Georgia. To everyone's great pleasure the boys won their division Sunday with a score of 21 to 9.  Here's a photo of the champs... (our son is kneeling - 2nd player from right - kissing the trophy)!!

While I might not have a lot of time to craft I squeeze in as much as I can. I tend to flip flop from one craft to another. Sometimes it will be needlework others stamping and still others jewelry making. I love them all and will never devote all my time to just one.  I just started a desktop calendar which will have 6x6 stamped images. I'll post as I complete each month.  In the meantime, I realized I needed to update my index of Magnolia stamps.  Last summer I created a list of Magnolia stamps with the name of the stamp, the collection, a photo, and a checkbox to indicate whether you owned it or not. Since then several more collections have come out and I just finished updating the index. 

Please feel free to download the file for yourself. Just know that each file is well over 50 pages and if you don't see the photo at first, simply click on Print Preview and they'll pop up.
