Easter Weekend

Just a few pictures of our crazy weekend waiting for the Easter Bunny! I was kind of under the weather so we kept it a bit on the mellow side. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Little Steps Closer

In trying to keep up with my mess making skills, I have made myself a new organizer to hold all of my projects in. My problem lately has been that a very curious, small child had discovered how to open my sewing box, and has taken to lifting patterns, pieces of wallets, etc. and hiding them all about the house. So for now, the sewing box is hidden away, and the pattern pieces and such are hanging high up in the wall in various pockets, according to how close they are to being complete. I can't wait to see what happens when she starts to climb.

Other than that, the mess is still messy, the sewing is going slowly, and everything else is status quo. Someday, hopefully not to far off in the distance, the leathery goodness will prevail!

I Feel Like........


It feels like someone has run me over with a large truck. I hate my sinuses! I wish they would behave! Oh well, a day to lounge makes up for a sucky weekend. Tomorrow will be a better day as long as my sinuses agree.

Nothing can be done to help.

Alone is better than anything.

Far away is better than close to the heart.....WAY better!

Repeating yourself over and over is just going to cause a headache and resentment.

Confrontation is not worth the trouble, since it won't go anywhere.

Thinking of yourself first is good.

Pretty Dresses and Other Stuff

I found a box of clothing that my mom had saved for me from WAY back in my baby days. Included in the box were three pretty, frilly baby dresses that are just Ed's size. Oh my goodness does she love them! She wants to wear them all the time. Luckily there is a really cute little frilly cardigan to wear with them since it's still pretty chilly around here for the most part. I have yet to get her in the last dress, it's a frilly yellow dress with little bloomers to match. Too cute!

In other news, we are doing some massive cleaning and dumping right now. The mold is taking over our bedrooms and it needs to be stopped! So I am sitting here in my living room among boxes and bags of stuff to washed, donated, dumped, etc. I can't wait to clean it all out! It has been way too long in getting rid of a lot of this stuff. I really wish I could pick up our apartment dump out it's contents, and set it back up, putting only the contents that I want back inside. That would be awesome!

I Feel So Lonely

The kiddos have decided that they prefer to play in Ciaran's room. So each morning, they eat their breakfast and then toddle off to Ciaran's room to play. So here I am left alone with my coffee. It's weird, after having them glued to me for so long they just wanna hang with each other. So I guess I need to start figuring out how to spend my "coffee break" more wisely. Darn kids, changin' up the routine on me! Whatever Ciaran! Whatever Ed!

A New Thing To Share

Look what came out of my week of the funky flu attack! This one was floatin' around in my head for a bit and I finally just sat down and worked it out AND........... THERE YA GO! I have ideas for some more pieces, some beaded, some not, some with copper and silver, just fun and unique. It was nice to break up the depressing yuckiness of the flu with something lovely. On to getting everyone back to their healthy lil' selves and making more good leathery creations!
