If you read my post yesterday, you know that I am having a really hard time focusing on getting anything done so I consider these projects to be great accomplishments (although maybe not very crafty!). From catching up with Tara, it seems that I am not alone in this craziness, which makes me feel a little better. :)
My son and husband presented me with four Boy Scout uniforms that needed complete patch sets sewn on them to get ready for the Boy Scout Jamboree this week. Here is what my dining room table looked like:
This was not a fun project because those patches are all different shapes and my nylon thread kept breaking. I did laugh out loud however when my husband volunteered to sew them on using my sewing machine...He has never sewn before! I should have let him try for a little comic relief to my week! :)
With two high schoolers, our calendars are getting a little busy. It's important that we know where everyone needs to be so we can get them there or pick them up. (It's bad to leave a kid stranded at high school after tennis practice....not that I would know this from any personal experience...) So I picked up a few fun boards from Kohls & Target and created this communication center:
Now if it's not on the board, it doesn't happen.
#3: Strawberry Pie and Strawberry Jam!!!
If you read my post from Friday, we went strawberry picking last week. The berries were delicious and so were the fixins' I made with them. Yum!!
I did make a trip to Hobby Lobby this week and picked up some fun crafting items that I hope to get too VERY SOON. Just buying them makes me happy because they are all so colorful and pretty...and that will have to be good enough for now.
