Webby Wet Morning

This morning we awoke to dense fog...only it wasn't really fog, it was just ultra heavy humidity. I love the Midwest!! NOT! But, it did make for some really cool pictures.

green leaf

I LOVE my new camera! I have no idea what this plant is. It just looked too cool for me not to take a picture of it. I love how fresh and new the green looks. I think it's also neat how it's still rolled up around the edges where it hasn't completely "bloomed" yet.

How cute is this mouse? He is so tiny. He lives in Florida at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Sock Monkey comes to play!

This last one is my favorite Sock Monkey card. Sock Monkey is a stamp set in the 2008-2009 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. He's super cute! I did this card on glossy white cardstock and was pleased with the results. I did stamp Sock Monkey, color him, and then cut him out and added him to the banana background paper that I created with his little banana stamp. I used Stampin' Up! Stampin' Write markers to do the coloring.

The Beginning!

Eek! I've started this blog thing. I hope that I can keep up with it. A little explanation about my title, "Little Jewells". It bears explanation since it appears that "Jewells" is spelled incorrectly. Actually this "jewell" is not in reference to gems at all, but is instead after William Jewell, who was a real person. William Jewell was a benefactor who helped begin a four year college in Liberty, Missouri in 1889. William Jewell, the school, is my college alma mater. I currently live practically next door to the college, so that ties me again to the name. I also teach at Little Jewell School, the name of my at home classroom. So, no you know! I'll see you around this page I hope!
