Oh So Blue!

I must say that at the moment I am kinda in a funk, I haven't gotten to make anything lately and my studio is a mess. The is a little girl who shall remain name less that has visited more that me lately and pulled out all of her favorite fabrics for dolly blankets. This mom is not all that happy. I don't mind not being able to sew or craft because the kids keep me to busy, but when I am the one that keeps me from sewing, it erks me. I have been so tired lately, I was ready for bed at seven last night, seven? really? I barely made it through bedtime with the kids. I am hoping that it is just because my little man has decided that getting teeth one at a time is for sissies(he's getting four at once) and not sleeping and maybe I am still recovering from what ever it was that I had last week, because if this lasts much longer, I am going to go nuts. I sooo need my crafty time.

I also realized that I am not that person that can sew four skirts in two hours, I just can't go that fast, which is also frustrating. My kids would like their jammies before they grow into the next size. I would like to be able to finish all those projects that I have bough fabric for, like my corduroy vest and matching messenger bag, one of the few things that I have gotten for myself. So what's a girl to do, take a deep breath, say a little prayer, and be thankful for all I have been given, because this day shall pass to quickly.

This Weeks Cloth Diaper Giveaway

This week you can win
1 Gro Baby One Size Diaper and Gro Baby Disposable Diaper Soaker Pad. They look really neat, I wish that I could buy a few but I have a ton of diaper fabric downstairs, so this mama needs to get her butt in gear and make a few more dipes for my little dude. So, cross your fingers and hope that I win this one.

I have decided to keep a notebook and pen beside the computer when I am checking out all the cool blogs out there because I see something really cool that I want to do and I think "I can remember that one" , but I don't. I was just over at Little Birdie Secrets looking for something and found the post on the fun crochet washcloths that I had wanted to make but never got around to it. Ultimately there are just to many fun things to try and not enough time to do all of them. I have been trying really hard to prep all of my projects in the evenings so that on Saturday I can sew like a mad women and get lots of things done. So far its working, so hopefully I will have some great pics by Sunday night, but I can't promise because it is deer hunting opener this weekend and Jake will most likely be out all of Saturday so my sewing time will revolve around nap time. Maybe I can send the boys to Maga's for awhile.
