Arts and Crafts

I have always been the kind of person that is doing crafts. At one point I was really into making jewelry. Having my son put a stop to that.

I have since taken up, well, I'm not sure what to call it. I like paper crafts and have discovered the joy of mod podge.

At the Goodwill store I came across a desk caddy I really liked, but it was ugly. So I ran to Walmart to purchase some spray paint, hoping to redo it. When I started, I failed to notice that the regulator was missing from the nozel. So my paint job has bubbles. I could redo it, but who has that kind of time. Maybe later.

Lesson Learned: check your spray paint before you use it.

After and Before: sorry for the order

Wish List

I have been looking at getting a new camera. My Olympus Stylus is fine for close up pics, but does not do to good when people are a little farther away. I was really disappointed on our recent Disney vacation. More than a couple of pictures came out very blury. So much for the picture of the kids with Mickey and Minnie or our son with Buzz and Woody.

Of course my mom reminded me that I will problaby spend a thousand dollars on what I want. GREAT since I am not working. GREAT since it's not really a need but a want. GREAT since I will feel really selfish if I buy it.

So for now it is on my "Wish List." Maybe the birthday faerie will have compasion on my when my birthday rolls arounds in July. Or Santa in December. Even though I really don't want to wait until December.

Maybe I will cross my fingers for good measure.

First Day

Today is my first bolg. I am sure they will get longer, but for today, just a summary.

It is amazing how busy a household with a 3 year old and a 1 year old can get. I cannot keep my floors clean, the toys are all over the place, and the laundary is nonstop. HELP. I can't really hire someone because as soon as they would leave, the house would be a mess again. My mom tells me this is life with little kids, it will get better some day. (Like when they move out!)

The part that is hardest to belive is that I want another, and sooner rather than later. My husband could just pass out at the thought. I now it's chaos, I know it's a mess, but God knows I love every minute of it.

Soon I hope to add some of my favorite pass times, crafts and such. I apologize ahead of time if I tend to rant, my family is used to it.

Thanks for reading!!!!
