I sure wish there were more hours in a day, don’t we all??!! Time to just sit and relax?!! Flip though our favorite magazine, read that book we have been meaning to read forever.You see there are so many things that I would like to do and only so many hours. I have been busy pulling together some new spring ideas and creations. I create things from scratch, I don’t use patterns so it usually is a lengthy process to go from idea to final product.Hubby works long hours as a salesman, so he isn’t here to help as much as I would like. It’s not just with the building of things, for our business , but it seems it is always easier to make decisions with some one to bounce ideas off. My mind can go crazy with ideas sometimes and he is always there to keep me grounded.
Another thing that has taken our time is the good olde television!! Do any of you watch American Idol?? We started watching with season 2. Our children were interested in the show( our youngest daughter was in chorus in high school and she went on competition trip each year, so it was of interest to her), they would bring friends over to watch. We had a family room full of friends and family! It was such a good time to be able to share with our “teenagers” and their friends. We continued the “tradition” through the years, but we haven't been all together for the past few years. This year is different, we are all together again, close enough to take turns hosting. Spending time with the children and grandchildren……ya, that is what it is all about.
Do any of you still do craft shows? It has been so many years since I have done one, I am not sure if it is worth all of the effort. It takes so much time to prepare and set up….etc. How many items do you bring? It is all slowly coming back to me, but I am sure I am forgetting some things. As we have grandchildren we have been creating children's items, as well as lots of spring creations. (Hence the pictures. lol)
These are some of the children’s items that we have been creating. The little red chairs are so cute. The grandchildren love them. The seat lifts up for storage underneath. Can’t wait to see what the kiddos “store” in there. The little table is a saw buck table with a little section underneath perfect for decorating.
I found these cute little eggs at a local antique store. I am sure that are not very old, but they are so cute with the little bunnies on them, I just had to have them. They fit perfectly in this little spot, along with the little chicky. (I wonder how long they will stay there when the kiddos come along hhhmmm)
Well they will be here tonight. I better go take a look around and see if I need to move anything out of harms way. Thanks for sharing a few minutes visiting with me. I really appreciate you leaving a comment and letting me know you were here.
And don’t forget to say a prayer for all of the people whose lives were affected this last few days form all of the storms. Remember to hug your family and tell them you love them. Be thankful for all you have.
Have a wonderful day!
