Make it Fly


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, May 04, 2013


I usually only blog once a week and I don't always share my Creativity Journal entries with y'all (you're subjected to enough of my mayhem as it is). But this one seems kind of Sparky, so I thought I'd share. One of my usual themes--go outside and PLAY. :)

In case you're wondering, these are props I'm building for Mother's Day. My BFF, (also a Shelley, but with an EY) and I are speaking at our church this Mother's Day. We're doing a lot of stuff from a child's perspective, hence the giant toys and stuff. It'd make more sense if you were here. Probably... :)

Hope you're having a Sparktacular weekend!


Playing around with some of the giant alphabet blocks we made. hee hee

EDIT: People have asked about the Creativity Journal I've mentioned several times. Audrey's BFF, Emily gave it to me for Christmas. It's called 365: A Daily Creativity Journal, by Noah Scalin. He gives a prompt every day and it's up to the reader to do something with it. Most days, it's really fun, a real exercise for the old brain and creative muscle. Some days, I reach the end of the day and say, "Aargh, that infernal journal!" It can be hard doing something every day. Lol.

    You have so much fun!! I want to be your neighbor! Where do you live? LOL!! Ever consider moving to Nebraska? Just kidding. I haven't been outside to play in I don't remember when. I've been waiting for my 6 month old granddaughter to get old enough to take to the park. But you have inspired me to go have some fun of my own. I might just go see of my rear will fit in a swing. I used to love that!

    Thanks for the push! I went outside and found a few whirlybirds (smaller than yours) and some pine cones and some of those little ball things. I tried kicking them, but the dog kept getting in the way. I even got brave enough to walk down the closed road leading into the woods. I did stop and pick up a stick just in case (just in case of what I'm not sure) and having my dog gave me a little more courage also.

    Thanks and too cool! But sorry this weekend was more like winter again (got some snow emoticon ) But heard that spring is to return! And we have the whirlybirds, (don't like them, they plant them self's and grow too fast, were they don't belong emoticon ) But I do love the big things and going to have to look for that book. Have a nice week emoticon

    Love the giant paper air plane!

When I was a kid I used to collect the helicopters from our backyard. We would make them fly or peel the seed out of them. We would use the seeds then as our pretend food when we were playing. I still love to play with helicopters! And I also love kicking pinecones.... or rocks.... LOL!

Still a kid at heart! emoticon

    Unfortunately, my Maple has not dropped it's seeds yet. MN is really behind this spring with all of the bonus snow we got last week, over a foot in some areas. Fortunately not in my area so I was able to gain access to my garden and get some more plants in the ground; onions and cabbage. Good post!

    Your whirly-birds I call Helicopters! We've had tons and tons of rain here over the past month. I'm hoping it's dry enough Tuesday for my hooping group to play at the park!

UGH. Laundry. You reminded me that I need to put in another load. Gee, thanks, Shelli! :P

    Until our pool exploded two winters ago, we would have to SHOVEL those da--ed helicoptors off the deck, the grass, the roof, the pool and cover, out of the eaves troughs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A pox on whomever planted those trees in our back yard!!!!

Picture thirty to forty bushels of them on a pool cover with about a thousand gallons of water(melted snow),, no wpicture two women bailing the composty leaves and coptors off the cover in the funky, manure/B.O/toejam/roadkill smelling(and feeling actually) guck!!!!!!!!
We did it every single spring for 24 years!

I am impressed by the kicking that little picky ball thingie a whole mile though!! I will pass on the coptors!
