So Much to Do

Well, the first week after spring break is almost in the books! I think most everyone in the building is tired, yes even the kids. Most parents will probably enjoy sleeping in tomorrow since their kids are exhausted, but not this mom. I am sure they will all be up by their normal 6:30 AM. I guess they got their momma's sleeping gene, not their daddy's. Oh well, we have so much to do it won't hurt me to be up early.

We are hoping to get the flooring in the back room this weekend, I won't get my hopes up that we get the trim done, but flooring would be another step completed and I am ok with that. KU game starts at 7:49 Saturday night so things will stop by then and all attention will be on the TV. It will be tough to win, but hopefully our Hawks show up! Sunday we have our nephew Coopers first birthday party. How time flies! That means that our little one will soon be one as well.

My friend Lindsey got her baby quilt last weekend so I can post it now. I hated to post before on the rare chance she would read this and see her present. Hope "Mini Mo" will love it! We sure miss Lindsey! What a great teacher she is, I hope her new school is appreciating her talents!!

I thought it turned out pretty cute! Bright colors in quilts set off by white always make me happy! Well hope you all have a great Friday! Monday will come too soon, but I will see just how much I can get accomplished this weekend! Projects, family, food and fun is a great way to be busy!!

Back to the Grind....

Spring Break is officially over (sigh)! Don't get me wrong, I do love going to work everyday, but boy is it nice to be home with the kiddos and get some stuff done. Hubby and I got the back room one step closer to being done. Tore out the paneling, took out a big ol' cabinet, sheetrocked and painted. Flooring won't come in until sometime this week, so hopefully if we can find time, before the KU game, to get it done this coming weekend.

Got a few other projects completed too. I finished an order for a pink sock monkey and patched a pair of jeans. My first ones. Hopefully they are patched cool enough for a high school girl to wear!

Our big girl Avery turned three a couple weeks ago!! How the time flies. She is our St. Patty's day baby!! What a blessing. She is such a little firecracker!! We choose to call her spirited, mostly because it sounds better than calling her a pain in the rear! :) She wanted a princess cake, but I took the easy road and made her a cake with a sprinkle crown and then rainbow jar cakes for all the kids (thanks Pinterest). Her day was a success and now I have a three year old!!

Well, have many more projects I am hoping to make, some involving upcycling some clothes. We will see if anything turns out! If so I promise I will post. I can tell you are all on the edge your seats now!! Have a great one!

Finally....I didn't procrastinate!!!!

Wow, didn't know I had it in me! I finished all of Avery's skirts, even got them ironed and it isn't Friday night at midnight (her party is Saturday)!! The rest of this week is gonna be a whirlwind, but in all honesty that is pretty much how our lives are! Carnival set-up tomorrow, Carnival Friday 5-9 pm, Avery's 3rd birthday Saturday afternoon and then our 3rd annual Irish family feast Saturday night! The best part of it all is Spring Break is right around the corner! Here are the skirts I made for my big girl Avery, hopefully I can get her to model them after the party and get some pics of her in them!

I think they turned out pretty darn cute. I was telling hubby that I love them, but in 30 years when we are looking at pictures I can just imagine Avery saying, "Mom, I can't believe I had to wear those skirts you made!!" Ha ha, I guess only time will tell. Have some new projects that I am hoping to get to soon! Even have a couple orders to fill. Love that! Can't wait for Avery to see her pretty skirts and have a wonderful birthday party!

A Busy Week Begins.......

Well, it is that time of the year! Basketball is over and Jump Rope for Heart is in the books. So what comes next? The Carnival naturally!!!! This will be Windom Elementary's Second Annual Carnival. What fun it will be. There will be food, games and a loaded silent auction table. This year I donated a coordinating sock monkey and apron. They turned out pretty cute. They would make a great Easter present for a little girl. Hint, hint people!

One week until spring break and I think kids and teachers alike are ready. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my job, but a week off sounds really quite nice! Going to be busy though. I need to finish three skirts for Avery's birthday. It is Saturday and I can't believe she is going to be 3 already!! How time flies! Well hopefully you will get to see the skirts soon and as soon as my friend Lindsay gets her baby quilt I will post it. I think it turned out cute, but don't want to ruin the surprise on the odd chance she would read this. Enough talkin, need to get going on those darn skirts!!
