My Busy Life

Hey Everyone!

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm trying to get back to blogging more than once a month, so we'll see how I do. I've been making lots of projects lately, but finding time to upload them to my blog has been difficult.

A little bit of what I've been up to.... I've been going to my local Farmer's Market every Saturday from 7 am as soon as I get there until about noon unless it rains. I've been selling my cards, some hair bows and some microwavable heat packs made out of socks and some made out of flannel. It's been fun hanging out with my work friends who also have been selling different items at the Farmer's Market. I'll try to upload some pictures of what I've been selling at a later date.

My granddaughter turned 1 on April 13th and on May 11th, we threw her a birthday party. I think she had fun. Here is her birthday card I made. Her parents call her "monkey" and I was going with an animal print theme for her party. The monkey is actually on an Action Wobble so it looks like he's swinging.

Her cake was special ordered from Wal-Mart.

And here is the birthday girl. Just click on the picture to enlarge it to see the detail better.

I took a onesie and cut some purple material (with iron on adhesive on the back) out on my cricut in the shape of a one. I ironed it on, did some zig zag stitching around the edges and added some buttons in one corner. I also made ruffles and sewed them onto the back of the shorts and sewed on the ribbon that I had tied into a bow. I forgot to bring a bow for her hair. :(

Here is her birthday banner that I cut using my cricut.

And here is one of her gifts that she got from us. We love horses in our family. My youngest son and my mom both have horses, so we thought it would be fun to get her a rocking/bouncy horse and it makes noises too.

And then last but not least, I've been helping my kids finish up their last days of school before summer break. I still have three sons at home and they go to three different schools. My second oldest just graduated. Yay! Two down, two to go and one of those will be next year already.  :)

Here is my graduate:

Well, that is all I am going to share for today, but I will be starting to post my projects so check back often. Thanks for checking in with me today and I'd love for you to leave me a comment.  :)
