Pineapple Wilson

Pineapple Card June 2020 paper pumpkin box of sunshine

So I did a few Paper Pumpkin alternatives for the June 2020 Box of Sunshine Kit.

When I punched out the pineapple the piece of paper that was left reminded me of the Wilson volleyball on the movie Castaway which made me think of a this is what I did...ha!

I used the Snowman Builder Punch and the Vases Builder punch to add arms and a mouth on my Wilson Pineapple. 

I did a quick FaceBook Live in my Stamping With Di group so you can see the other cards.

If you want to get a Paper Pumpkin box each month you need to subscribe by the 10th of the  month to get that month's box. So if you want July's box, here is a sneak of the need to subscribe by July 10.

For the Birds

Jeffs birdhouse group

Jeff built a bunch of birdhouses and hung them on the light did not take the birds long to start making themselves at home!

Here is a brief intermission from my bird post etc.

Daniel Levy Schitts creek sab

Do you watch Schitt$ Creek? It is filmed up by my little sisters house in Canada, and I am so sad that it is ending. I see so many fun memes with Ryan Gosling that I just had to make one with Daniel Levy (a.k.a. David).  If you have not seen the show you can watch it on Netflix and I dare you to not want to start talking like Moira...or any of the an Alexa...not the one that listens into all our conversations kind.  Thanks for the amazing show Daniel & Eugene Levy - in case you did not recognize those eyebrows, they are father and son. It also stars Catherine O'Hara and Annie Murphy and other amazing actors. We need more laughter right now for sure.

David is reminding you that Sale-A-Bration is almost over, don't forget to place your order.

So the other week or so I was out in the yard and found this.


I was so excited, a sunflower and we had not even planted it....Jeff was like oh I have been pulling them out thinking it was a weed...EEK! I love sunflowers. I even have a tattoo of one on my arm for Eric....a flower for my son....a now it is doing this.


Yay! I am sure the birds planted it from the wild bird seed that Jeff feeds them...we sure need a little sun and pretty right now eh?

I need to google to see how to save the seeds to plant next year.

Jeff has been busy making bird houses. See the cute red, white and blue is like the ones he made for the pole, but purtier!

Corner shelf

This is a little corner shelf our sweet friend Armando made for us one time, and I had Jeff pull it back out so I could put it back in the corner.

I wanted it beside my welcome sign that I did at the new Board and Brush in Queen Creek. I think I might have shown that already.

Welcome board and brush sign

All the bird houses started with this one...did I share this already?

Birdhouse 1

Jeff made this to hang is just pallet wood. He brought it in to show me and I said "mine!" and he hung it inside the house...ha! Then he had to make more for actual birds.

I also messed around with Zoom is me learnin'. I learned I am not converting the zooms to YouTube as they look and sound horrible.

Sorry for a crazy disarray post...I hope you are all well and safe and doing social distancing...hence why I am learning some technological stuff.

Oh and you can get the refills for these fun kits while supplies last, remember just the papers etc. No stamps or inks. To get the stamps and inks you need to be a paper pumpkin subscriber:



Well that is it for a quick pop in for the day. Have an awesome Monday and thanks for stopping in.
