Hand work is all I can do these days. The kids are up all day and NEED my constant attention...sewing on the machine is out of the question during the day...then at night I can't get to the machine as hubby goes to bed so early...he's so tired...working 7 days a week...I wish I could ease his burden more!
It's such a stress reliever for me...crafting and stitching...I can just escape the crazy chaotic life I lead sometimes.
Flowers don't sass back at me when I tell them to clean up their toys, or help me sort and fold the laundry.
But flowers don't give hugs and kisses like my girls can.
This little pretty is a new design (just listed click here!) that might become one of the new kits available it's embellised with a brad by Amy Butler. Love them!
Sara's walking now...sigh...another milestone down and new childproofing to install. Pretty soon she will be climbing over the ottoman that i have up to barracade my computer off away from her sticky hands. She loves to touch the buttons...it's a toddler's job to explore!
Needle felting is so wonderful...the stabbing....the release of energy that goes through my body...especially during PMS days!!! Oh and so glad school is going to start on Tuesday...these girls are non-stop talking! I can't get a thought of my own into my head...it's all jumbled...mom, mama, mommy...all day long..I swear they seem to want me to know everything even how many tissues they use...geeesh! How else does a mom get a break if it's not with crafts and handmade items to sell. I get into the zone and loose myself...kinda like calgon of days gone by.
I just don't know what to do with this bone and dish...maybe write the word woof! and make it into an ornament? It's a true UFO today.
The Holiday ornament Threadibilities Craft Kit™ is almost ready to be listed...hooray! Something accomplished that might sell...so glad that sales are going back up again..I was getting discouraged...oh artists...we need such constant stroking of our fragile egos!
Now this little pink poodle is an idea from my girlfriend's little girl...her #2 DD and only 9 years old she did the designing...I hope she likes how it turned out.
