A day of peace

Do you ever have those mornings when you wake up to kids being as loud as they possibly can at, oh say about 6:30am and you didn't even get to sleep til almost 2am?! Oh the joy's of summer have begun! I pulled the 5 minute no talking rule when I woke up the second time and they were still at it. Thankfully it still works! It reminded me of childhood days when my little brother wouldn't stop talking and we would time him to see how long he could not make a sound! I know some day in the not so distant future I will miss all the noise.

I did enjoy an entire day of peace, yesterday! I spent the day crafting, of course! A red tulle wand for a special lil girl, I put the finishing touches on 6 wish bottle necklaces, put stickers on glass jars and spray painted til my heart was content (one says color, the other says paint), and crocheted new dish clothes and a big scrubbie with some colorful yarn!

And now the day is already half over, but for me it's just beginning...with a big cup of coffee and plenty of crafty ideas to fill another day of fun!

that little nugde of creativity

Daisy Lane Scrapbooking Mall is having a decorate a bottle contest. So of course we had to pull all the supplies out to have a day full of crafting, giggles and fun! My first bottle was Jack Gone Vintage. It just seems funny to me, since my kitchen is full of Jack Daniel's signs & bottles, and I like how the original Jack bottle looks. My second was the beach bottle and I absolutely love it! I will definitely be making more, as gifts and for me too!

I even got the urge to paint!

Happy Day to Me!

A day of gratitude and crafting. So many ideas! I've been under the weather with bronchitis now for the last week. Thankful that today I feel so much better and the doc I saw yesterday gave me antibiotics to help kick this. I woke this morning to a dead phone and no alarm going off. The kids all managed to get up and out the door on time. The younger two even gave me a musical card, sang to me and gave me my daily dose of morning hugs. Good start to a wonderful day! I'm looking forward to sharing my vanilla cheesecake with strawberries with all my guys tonight!
Now on with the sharing of pictures!

I'm not really a headband kind of gal, maybe it's the lack of short bangs. I used to wear one all the time...way back when *wink*. I finally found one I love and I made it! These are all crocheted and super comfy!

My new dish clothes..maybe they'll inspire me to wash some dishes?

Of course there's a bag! This one is little, crocheted with 100% cotton yarn, has a braided strap, a button closure and will soon have a cotton lining with a pocket before it's completely done.

In case you're wondering where Raindrop Bags has gone, or why the site still says under maintenance, I haven't "gone" anywhere..just making some changes. So if you're interested in anything that shows up on here in the meantime please let me know. I'll be happy to work out a sale with you! The facebook page will return in the future too.
