I promise, I have been keeping busy

Slime! Wonderful slime!

Big surprise, I have not been sitting still much lately. Because if I do sit still, I have a nasty habit of falling asleep. But I had a decently productive weekend and got all sorts of random goodness done. Luckily for you, I won’t bore you with stories and pictures of me cleaning my entryway.

The kiddo and I spent a good chunk of time doing all sorts of different crafts together. Lots of coloring, painting and playing with stickers. But I also added something different to the usual weekend…we made slime. As usual, the requested colors were pink and purple. While I was playing with food colors, I also made her day with a stack of mini rainbow pancakes. Both were pretty simple things to pull off, but considering my energy levels lately, they make me feel wonderfully accomplished.

I also wrapped up a swap package for the Make a Friend swap I joined. Just in case my partner stops by my blog, I don’t want to share pictures of every single thing I made. (If you are visiting, turn back now!) But there are two things I really love that I can’t wait to share. The first is some rose and chamomile eye pillows. Since they were so fast and easy to whip together, I made two for her and two for me. They also make me really happy because I got to use scraps of fabrics that I really, really love.

My partner also had a doily dream catcher pinned on her nursery board. Some of the colors she requested for her little girl perfectly matched a flower doily that has been in my stash forever. So in an effort to work with what I have and still make something fabulous, I went digging. After some trims, feathers and rhinestones, I have something (I hope) she will be thrilled with.

Besides all these little goodies, I have also been continuing on with the painting for our living room wall. I really want to get that done before the new little guy shows up. I think I may get a bit more done on it tomorrow night and share a picture…or two.
