Simple summer day with too much cleaning and not enough time to relish the warm moments.  It is hot and dry here. As I watered my potted plants I found the birds were in a flurry of joy.  It was as if they thought maybe, just maybe, rain was on its way.  They fluttered and chirped and dove in and out of my spray.  I found it amusing and wanted to grab my camera but no such luck juggling the hose nozzle and camera.

As a creative distraction from the organization project underway, I decided a light switch plate in the guest bedroom deserved a quick makeover.  I started with blank switch plate…

And added textured paper using a thick layer of Mod Podge on the top and bottom of the paper.
