Fun Fridays – The Dill, The Dog and The Toads

As I was weeding eliminating the toad habitat aka the dill patch, I thought this might make a fun, Fun Fridays post. Of course this thought came to me towards the end of the eradication and the toads were nowhere to be found for a photo op.

The toads keep me company now that Spencer is gone. He use to circle the plots since they are fenced to keep small critters including himself out. Never to early to check for his favorite – green beans! We can safely say that dill was not his favorite. In fact, if he was being sassy, we would show him a sprig of dill and he would calm down quickly and retreat to his nap mat for some regrouping.

I saved a large jar of dill and used about 2 teaspoons in a pull apart recipe. Never fear, more fresh dill will grow along the edges of the garden. Just enough shade for the toads under the wood board shelter that keeps them cool and the garden dirt contained.

So this is how paper crafts are weaved into the Dill Edition. Buns nicely packaged to take a few to my sister:

I should have edited my watermark to say “baked by.” HaHa!

I bake my own buns and created a quick digital layout to share the process. My Pampered Chef stoneware is a trusty friend on baking day:

And the paper crafts:

The stamp sets Wild About Flowers and Gifts from the Garden, the garden green ink pad, 1 1/2 inch circle punch and paper snips are still current. Cello bags have changed size in the new catalog but we still have them! I used a few recently retired products (washi tape punch, Cherry on Top DSP and clothespin) while I await my first order from the new catalog. I’ll share the unboxing when I get it!

Hope you enjoyed the Dill, the Dog and the Toads! Have a nice weekend!
