So far this week, no day has been on schedule and “normal” like I hoped would happen with school back in session! But TODAY, finally some reprieve, except for a doctor appointment for DD3 to make sure she didn’t have a UTI. She doesn’t. So it’s likely a mild intestinal bug or just plain ol’ teething (which I tend to lean towards believing). She is getting her last tooth, a nice big molar. The whole dr. outing didn’t take long, so we were back home in record time and able to take back the day mostly!
Thursday I like to keep as my creative, studio days if at all possible. It felt wonderful today. I set up DD3 with her new crayons and some coloring pages. Then she wanted to paint. Then she found and empty Tic Tac container, and that kept her quiet as she stuffed it with some little foam stick on craft pieces. She was so proud of her accomplishment, and so was I…several minutes of pure quietness!! She was anxious to have her picture taken as I was taking pictures of the cards I’ve made recently, so I captured her with her Tic Tac container all neatly filled.
I needed a masculine birthday card, so of course, I made two. One to give and one for the stash. Pinterest inspired of course.
I needed a few coffee themed cards to mail out. Played with a new Tim Holtz die…I know…I have a Silhouette and shouldn’t be buying die cuts, but there is something about dies and punches that is just so handy and user friendly. Also loving a new 6×6 paper pad from Michael’s of the kraft and gold combo designs you see on the above and below pictured cards.
And another SU Paper Pumpkin card to send out soon,
And two anniversary cards, one to give and one for the stash! Pinterest inspired again.
Still loving my MISTI…used it on these two cards to stamp the sentiment, so I would have no issues since the card was fully made already except for the sentiment! Perfecto. LOVE!
Now it’s nap-time and the big kids will soon be home from school. Dinner is ALL prepped! Some days are win-win! The last late afternoons have brought on quite the witching hour as it’s often called, so I’m going to enjoy a quiet late afternoon today. Sautéed cabbage, onions and garlic (oh, and some finely chopped kale for good measure!) with kielbasa, roasted garden fresh carrots and sautéed zucchini with fresh tomatoes and onions. Yummm. I’m soon going to be missing all this #gardenfresh dinner prep goodness.
