I'm Married to a Modern Day Fred Flintstone

I am married to a modern day Fred Flintstone.
You think I'm joking but seriously I am not.

1. Fred works at a rock quarry. Hubby owns/works at one.
2. Fred runs a dinosaur loader. Hubby runs a modern day loader.
3. Fred walks in the door and yells "Wilma I'm Home". Hubby announces his presence by ringing the door bell numerous times...just as irritating.
4. Fred loves his ribs. Hubby could down those ribs in no time flat.
5. Fred thinks he is boss of his domain. Hubby.. well I let him think the same, but we all know the truth. LOL
6. Fred has a saber tooth tiger for a pet (yes he has Dino too). Hubby has our cute cat Rose.
7. Fred belonged to "The Loyal Order of the Water Buffalo". Hubby was a member of "Frags Ain't Skillz" gaming clan.
8. Fred could snore like its no body's business. Hubby has him beat. I think I may be going deaf because of it.
9. Fred's famous saying is "Yabba Dabba Doo". Hubby's is "Scooby Dooby Doo, Scooby Dooby Day"
10. Fred is so lovable in his goofy antics. Hubby has his days too, LOL.
See told you. Scary isn't it.

I thought that I would post some of my Spring crafts that I have done over the years, because I love pictures on blogs.
I made all these from start to finish. I cut out the wood on my scroll saw, then painted and added the embellishments.
I love my little bunny family. The dad's carrot and the mom's egg is also cut out of wood.
The nose on the Hop On In bunny is also a separate piece of wood that I cut out, so it has dimension to it.

My Welcome Bunny has the most painted details. I added depth by painting in the shadows. I notice she needs to be touched up. I hang her from the front door, so she has to endure the outdoor elements.

I worked on my organizing today. I want to make a wall with a tiny door against the downstairs steps. So I am hoping to get some of that done tomorrow. I also worked a bit on my stamping area.

Hope your Tuesday was a good one.
