ugh.. my children are not giving me the time I need!!!!  Hopefully in the next 4 days they give me at least 1-2 hours!!  I'm going to bed.. I'm exhausted....  can't wait til Little J is no longer a 'newborn'  and doesn't mind laying on the floor hanging out while I do stuff.....   I love holding her, don't get me wrong.. but I could be productive.... I know, I know.. theres plenty of time in the future,and they are only little for so long....   Just must be part of the way I was raised.  you should always be doing something productive..... 



When you start feeling that way, just remember that being a mommy is the MOST productive thing you can do Smiley Not chiding you because I understand exactly how you feel. I have to remind myself that being a mommy is most important all the time.
Also, have you tried a sling or carrier? That was the only way I got anything done when my kiddos were babes.


Now, on a crafting note - I'm trying to decide if I should rethink that project or not. I have 2 ideas and I'm not sure which way to go.

thanks Lisa!  It always helps to be reminded that I'm not alone in this crazyness... I should try and use my carrier more often.  I bet I could get more done Smiley

Glad you got some quiet crafting time! I'm so excited to see what you made up in the gallery Smiley.

I've found that I never end up crafting for the holidays that I initially think I'm going to craft for. I usually go back and forth and brainstorm some ideas and then something totally random and related to another holiday pops into my head and away we go!

This time I was so sure I was going to craft something lollipop related for This Sucks Day but I was kind of stuck on what to actually make. Then I saw the fuzzy grey yarn at the store and instantly thought dust bunny = No Housework Day and abandoned lollipops altogether Smiley.

I switched one holiday for another midstream, too. Sometimes you have to go with what inspires you!

I also had the idea and supplies for one holiday but switched for another right before I started!  I love the versatility of these holiday swaps!

I just had a brain epiphany thing yesterday and holiday project #3 came to me!  Now to find the time to make things.  I'm sick sick sick and in day 7 of a 21-day work week.  Long days too.  March Madness is the bain of my existance. 

Anyway, I am excited to find time for this crafting though  Smiley

I changed my mind yet again for the one project. And I LOVE what I'm doing now Smiley If my partner doesn't like what I've made she can send it back!  Cheesy



Organizer Note:  I'm finally updating the sent/received list in the gallery. Will also give feedback out to those who are done. Please check the list and make sure I didn't miss you. Thanks!
