Naps always upset me a bit. I love them, and sometimes I clearly need them, but I always pick the worst possible times. Sunday afternoon and tons of chores to do? Yeah, that’s the time to crash for two hours. I blame it on the couch. That evil beast is oh so comfy. Pretty much, you touch it and you’re done.
On the upside, I’m not feeling too bad because I did pretty decent with staying on top of things. So how did I do? Let’s recap:
- Vanilla sugar: DONE!
- Transfer the pattern for my sister-in-laws gift: not done
- Make two more afghan squares: one done!
- Hunt down my doll pattern: DONE!
- Felt a wool jacket I have for one of L’s gifts: DONE!
- Bake the dishes I painted: DONE and DONE!
I went to transfer my S.I.L.’s pattern, and realized my fabric pencil is total crap. So when I went out on Saturday, I invested in two good marking tools. I did lose half a day of crafting to shopping on Saturday, but it was worth it. My husband watched L so I could shop totally alone and unimpeded. Nothing slows me down like a potty training toddler new to underpants. But back to the main story. I am now 90% done with buying anything I need for Christmas and my kiddo’s birthday. Now I just need to start assembling things.
I was happy that in the midst of my errands, I did drop off the wedding gift that was approximately one month overdue. Even better, that means I can share with you!
Friday was a great day because the art museum got an Art-O-Mat. For those not familiar, the company takes old cigarette vending machines, gives them a makeover, and loads them with art. For $5, you get one piece of awesome, unique and tiny art. Since the museum is right across the street from my work, three other ladies and I went over there and blew cash for our break. A tiny coptic book, earring, ceramic robots…all came from that awesome green machine.
At home that night, I started to tear into a magenta wool jacket from my stash. I have a gift idea for my daughter, but we will need to wait and see how execution goes.
