Alrighty Here we go with several ideas for the Quest Ts.
The Energy Drink Can just didn't look right on a Tshirt :D

Another Rendition:

Still working on more...

Father's Day

Sunday, June 15, 2008

Father's Day has arrived! Wow- I can't believe Bob has been a Dad for close to 16 years! I am so grateful that the Lord chose him to be the Dad to my boys. He is such a strong, kind, and caring man. My kids would do well to grow up and be just like Dad. He is at the Mac Brown Youth Football Camp with Jacob right now. I think it's a perfect place for him to be on Father's Day. He helped Nate get his gear ready over the last two days for Nate's first Boy Scout Summer Camp this week. Bob took Nate this morning, but not before I snapped some pics with my new camera :)

Bob shoulders so much responsibility on a daily basis. I have no idea how I would have ever done it without him. Thank you Honey :)

Present Time

I pulled an all-nighter to get this done--but it was worth it :D

Scrapbooking is more than just a hobby for me. It is definitely a way to relax and have a creative outlet. I find that as I decorate, design, scraplift, and mix and match I am overwhelmingly grateful for all the blessings that the Lord has so generously and abundantly blessed me with.

Here is another view of both pages:

I am glad that I am finally scrapping these photos from Hawaii. They were taken in 2004!!!

Altered Projects

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

When I started to notice "Altered" projects on Two Peas in a Bucket several years ago I thought it was odd. I could not picture myself doing anything resembling an "Altered" project. Things always change somehow--never say never. Last year I totally got into the 'altered tins'. I even ended up teaching a class on them at the Ladies' Retreat!!!

I got an excellent deal on them on Ebay and I have several left-which suits me just fine :) I think they are perfect for mini baby books. I have made 2 for that purpose and 1 for my Mom to keep some of her grandchildren's photos in.

I am getting ready to make 2 more and I am so excited! I found such great baby boy papers--one is Crate Paper and the other is a K&Company slab. I will have to wait to post pictures of these projects--but check back in in the next couple of weeks b/c I am going to LOVE making these! Here are two examples:

Another step ahead in the road of life... Nate was inducted into BYG today. That means ALL the Wellauers are in BYG and ALL of us are headed to Quest!!! Woo Hoo! Praise the Lord for placing us in such a phenomenal church family at Believer's Fellowship.

Youth Induction

School's Out!

Thursday, June 5, 2008

I can't believe Summer is already here!
This means that Caleb is a JUNIOR in High School, Jacob IS in High School-- A Freshman!!! and our baby-Nate is in Middle School!!! No more Elementary School visits. *Sigh* Time marches on and every moment I treasure with my sweet boys.

Nate promptly called to see if he could stay at his friend's house and have a water balloon fight, Jacob made plans to go spend the night with his best friend, and Caleb worked on the garden and made sure he was ready for his first day in college tomorrow. How cool is that?!

Summer will fly by us with football camps, Boy Scout Camp, ACC courses, and a trip to San Antonio to have some family time. I am looking forward to capturing all these cool happenings on my new Canon Digital Rebel. I have watched the DVD twice, but I'm signing up for a beginning photography course with Candice Stringham on the new and improved Jessica Sprague website.

Her new and improved design ROCKS! I'm going to have to find me some time and do a custom design for my ajwdesigns site. I tried Joomla and it was PAINfully slow. I installed Wordpress but I have not had time to tweak it yet---YET!


I have not had one moment that is not spoken for, but I want to reattempt to get this blog thing going again.

Today I took Jake and his friends to Starbucks on the way to their house for a sleepover. I was talking to the boys about this year's youth camp and asked them if they were excited. They asked me if I was doing the T-shirt design again and I told them that the theme this year is 'Recharged'. Jonathan said- "Why don't you use an energy drink can for the design?" BRILLIANT! That was such a FABULOUS idea!

I am so excited about working on the Quest T-shirt for this year! I had begun working on a first idea for this year's T-shirt about 4 days ago and ran out of time. Caleb has some SERIOUS Photoshop Skillz! He did the work on the realistic looking drink can while I worked on the design. I think it may end up with lightning bolts behind it. It also still needs the Scripture reference and some other minor details.
So--here is what came of that conversation:

Now--this is not going to be the T-shirt FOR SURE-because this year I am sharing this fun with Erick--but I think it's a great start even if it doesn't make the cut.
