still here

I promise. Sorry that I have disappeared for a bit. It's been crazy. But when isn't it? It does seem to have picked up in the craziness, though. Am I right? So a re-cap with some pictures to prove it.

For Bug's 30th he wanted a work party. And no, not meaning invite all his fellow coworkers & bosses over for a fun little dinner party...around here that means invite the family to bring their work gloves and muscles and tear up our house some more. For his big day we said our goodbyes to the hot tub & our bouncy deck.

For Mother's Day, its a bit overwhelming. It's all homemade craftiness around here. Scrapbooked pages for all the grandparents, and a shadow box for my mom who lost her mother a few months ago. After such a long week/day, I have deemed this upcoming Sunday as my day off since the real mother's day wasn't so much.

For the other's days in between, time spent with family attending my nephews kindergarten program (loved every minute), working out in the a.m. with my friend, HOBBY LOBBY opening up in the quarry (proof prayers do get answered), trek prep, completely reorganizing my craft stuff, getting my back in whack, too many church related projects then called for, and cooking up more craft ideas to keep me plenty busy.

Craft projects like: make more ties for this irresistible sweetheart. Who has suddenly become 6 months old. How does this happen?

And now: back to reality. As we speak (or more like as I type) Bug is digging away again in the basement, filling up buckets to fill up holes in our yard. The good wife that I am, I am going to go hold the flashlight for him. (if you thought I was going to crawl in the hole & dig with him, then we must not be as well-acquainted as I thought).

Ta ta for now.


  1. Oh, how I love that tie! It's fantastic. And, are you kidding me? You have trek this year?!?!

  2. Our little boys need to play! He is so cute. How did your young women craft turn out?

  3. LOVE the tie! Life is busy!

  4. What?! Hot tub is gone? Why? I thought you loved that thing. Just reading how busy you've been has me tired- really. We truly are living the extreme opposite lifestyles right now, aren't we! I could use a bit more to do, and you could definitely use LESS to do:)

    Miss you!

  5. Hot tub gone forever? Or just moved while doing work? We would have come helped. You are a very creative lady! Love the ties.
