The end of craftiness?

Oh, it’s almost time. Time to go back to school. While I really do love my job, I love being home even more.  When I am home my house is clean (kind of), the groceries are bought (and then quickly eaten), the laundry is done (although we go through a lot more of it), and the kids are content—this is what it is. I have time to do crafty things for me, no construction paper, glue sticks, or 19 copies of anything! I can do what I want. I can use my hot glue gun, I can use big girl scissors, I can even use the computer in the middle of the day to pour over free printables just because I want to! I have not been overly crafty or come up with anything ingenious this break but I have taken time to do some fun things just for me, my family, and my house. After tomorrow, it’s all over. Back to homework and sight words, packed lunches and practices, getting up early and diet coke alone for lunch, brushed hair and no more pajama pants! {sigh}
To recap while on break I…
Held a VERY impromptu tea party
Went chalkboard crazy
024         023041
Learned how to make book page “fire” flowers034
played with nature items031
Redid my favorite kitchen area with my new mantra
Made a new wreath (gotta work on my photography!)
Found some awesome printables-- here
and learned how to fishbone braid (kinda)
Too bad I don’t have a picture of the laundry, or the endless cooking, or the window washing, or the floor mopping and baseboard cleaning. Well,  it’s back to work tomorrow…
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31


  1. Love the braid. It's became one of my favorites. See you Friday... uhh.

  2. I love your chalkboards! You have been crafty! I'm dreading school starting back and I haven't even been on break!

  3. I love the book page flowers and the Buck Sign! Hopefully we'll get to see each other soon!

  4. Wow, you've been busy! I love all your crafts, especially the wreath and chalkboards. I wish I was as crafty as you! :) Can't wait to see you on Friday!!

  5. You go girl! Love all the crafty things you did. I still have to open my new dies and see what kind of hair pretties I can make with them! You know I'll be sharin'. See ya Sunday Sunday Sunday!
