We Come and We Go

6 Dec

As I was sitting down yesterday after an eventful exciting day with the girls, I realized I was so tired of putting off the things I love the most. I haven’t been crafting as much as used to, I haven’t been writing here as much as I’d love to, I haven’t taken care of myself because I am so busy taking care of everything else! It seems like I’ve been slowly realizing this as I’ve started putting me back in the front seat.

Recently I’ve pulled back out my yarn and hook and starting making things for myself instead of my etsy page. I had worked so hard on my etsy shop making things I thought people would want to buy that I wasn’t enjoying it anymore. I took some time to think about what I wanted to make for me or my family and the ideas started rolling in!

How many scarves and hats have I made and Emma didn’t even have a set of her own? She had outgrown all of hers and although Payton has been loving the previous one’s Emma passed down, it was about time Emma has a set of her own! I let her pick out some of the yarn I already had in stock and I couldn’t be more proud of my hard work!

Since we moved into this house we haven’t had a wreath on our door. I know it seems ridiculous to be upset about that, but that was one of the things I was looking forward to when we owned our own home. Three years and I hadn’t made one wreath for our own home!!

Now I am happy wreath on my door home owner! Granted it’s only one, but I do have a few more ideas in mind. I am so proud of the fact that I didn’t attempt to buy sixteen of these, stock up on premade ones, and buy shipping boxes with the intention of selling them, because honestly I don’t want to!

What I plan on making is a happy home! I hope you all will join in me in my process of finding what’s important for me and my family and enjoy us as we come and go. I might not be consistent on this blog, but I will be here when I can.

The little things in life

21 Dec

Today was a day of doing anything and everything NOT on my list to do!! Haha. This morning I woke up planning on wrapping the last of my presents (what I thought was the last of my presents). All my orders had come in and I was ecstatic that I was done .. but little did I¬† know I was wrong! B had a gift that came out today so to Target I went! Then my mother-in-law called to see if she could drop off some stuff for E at the house and we ended up meeting for lunch! That turned out to be an awesome¬† surprise. I always love spending time with her. She is the kind of person that you always have something interesting to talk about and it’s always a good time! Time flies by when I spend it with her and always end up wishing we had more time then we did!! After we came back from lunch E and I were completely exhausted. She napped and I watched a little TV then got some serious motivation at of nowhere.

Instead of wrapping, I rearranged AGAIN! It’s a habit I just can’t seem to get rid of..

I moved the loveseat around and made the living room more of a little nook and finally managed to put in a little table!! YAYYY! I have wanted a table in here for quite some time for multiple reasons. Eating and watching TV without having to eat food out of my lap on the couch and crafts!!! Hooorayyyy! I have had this little table and chairs since college. My Great Aunt moved out of her house and into an apartment style place and was giving away a whole bunch of furniture and that’s one of the things I snatched. I decided to recover it with some awesome fabric I found on sale at JoAnn‘s because it has been in the family for quite some time and needed some TLC. I think I am going to recover the (bright yellow) cushions eventually but I actually love them! They just don’t really go with the rest of our house.

It’s funny how the little things in life excite me the most.

Well it’s time for a drink, E teething is wearing me out!!!

Love Always,

J
