Home Sweet Home

5 Dec

I started off with a board from the craft store that cost me $1.99

Sprayed the front with adhesive and placed it on construction paper

Picked out paper for the letters

The letters I picked out from the craft store $.99 for two letters in each packet = total of about $8.00

Decided to spruce up my plain paper a little

Layer number one

Layer number two .. i know it looks childish now but wait until you see the outcome!

Use the X-acto knife to cut the excess paper

Use adhesive on the letters

Place letters on paper and let them dry

Cut excess paper off letters

And the finished product .. although knowing me I’ll be changing it up somehow 😀

Onto other news! I have been working on E’s crocheted jacket and here’s what I’ve got so far:

I feel like it’s really coming along now!! So excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I am on to the next book! The last one of my list of books until the 2011 book challenge!

I have a feeling this one is going to be a good read.

Well that’s all for today!

Love Always,

Today is Sunday!?

5 Dec

Gosh my mental schedule is completely off these days! I feel like today is Monday but it is definitely not. It was a nice reminder when I woke up next to B still cuddling with me and it was 9:30! Sometimes I wish he didn’t have to go in so early so we could have some time together in the morning but I know that would only end up in him coming home later and I wouldn’t like that either.

On another note I am seriously excited about my possibilities for today! I have so many things that I could do and nothing that I have to do (besides laundry and taking care of E but that’s easy enough). I finished the book I was reading so I could start my next book! I don’t know about you but opening a new book is always exciting for me. You never know when a book could be a life changing moment for you, make you laugh so hard you might pee in your pants, or just a good read. Sometimes I hope for all three at one time but that’s just me! It’s like stepping foot into a completely different life and I absolutely love it!

Along with that I have a couple of projects I am excited about starting and if all goes well finishing 😉 Plus there’s always crocheting needing to be done but what makes it all so much fun is that none of it has to get done. I could literally sit all day long and not feel guilty about it! I love these days..

Isn’t it amazing that when you don’t have to do anything, those are the days you tend to get a million things done and when you need to get a million things done, you can barely accomplish one! That’s the story of my life.

So keep your eyes open because I just might be surprising you with some fun blog entries today 🙂

Love Always,

J
