Crafts: Baby Madness!

3 Jun

So I got a phone call from my cousin today and it looks like I am in business! I am going to be monogramming baby bibs, making burp clothes and monogramming them and possibly more!! This is super exciting 😀 I can’t wait to go shopping tomorrow to see what I can find for little baby girls. Who knows, I may stock up on some stuff and add a few listings on etsy!! This is one project I won’t have trouble getting into. Then on top of that I am going to be making a duvet cover for my sister. Well I’ll stick with saying I am going to attempt it! I’ve never made something like this before so I am going to have to do a little practicing but I’m excited to learn something new! Especially something that could potentially save people serious money! Inexpensive gorgeous crafts are my favorite.

So let’s get to it!! Hopefully I’ll be posting pictures tomorrow night of the progress 😀

Love Always,

Daily Life: Wow..

3 Jun

I just realized I haven’t posted since Monday. What the heck is going on?! Every time I think I’m getting back on track the next few days are a total slump. It’s not that I am sitting around doing nothing!! At least not all the time 😉 Haha okay I am guilty of a little sitting around doing nothing but sheesh I need a break.

So again with the catching up! Tuesday I had planned to go house shopping all day but that didn’t happen and I didn’t really get anything done because I was just waiting all day. Wednesday I worked and managed to fit in seeing two houses. One that was absolutely to die for but wasn’t quite enough square footage for my growing family and child care providing job.. and the second one was disastrous!!! For being at the top of my price range it was quite ridiculous how much work it needed.. so sad.

Thursday was girls day! We got E’s first ever haircut!! YAY! My mother-in-law spent the day with us and we went to lunch and just spent some quality time together. I wish I would have been feeling a little better though.. it’s hard to really get the most out of spending time with the ones you love when you feel like your dying (allergies). Then I went over to P’s house and took care of E, P, and S while their parents went house shopping! Ya for play date time! All the girls passed out with no problems 😉

Then that brings us today! Today is going to be seriously eventful. I have S and P over ALL day! It might be a little hectic but I’m sure we’ll have fun.

As far as getting crafts and other fun stuff done.. I have been a little distracted. I’ve been working on embroidery and it is quite fun!! But I have a lot of work to do on it before it’s picture-worthy.

I’m still in the process of reading When We Were Friends by Elizabeth Joy Arnold but I only have 60 pages to go!!

 Then I’ve kind of put aside the scarf I was crocheting due to concentrating on the embroider but I’ll pick that up again.

I have a few projects in mind (some from my sister) that I’d really love to work on! I just need a good day or two without interruptions to get them accomplished. Luckily I have one more week until my WEEK vacation! Maybe I’ll get some serious craftiness on that week! Anyone wanna babysit E for a couple of hours? Haha.

Well I better get off here and start getting ready for the girls.

Hopefully it won’t be a week before I write again 😉

Love Always,

J
