adding a little summer color to the living room….by super easy envelope pillows-easiest way to brighten up a space, even cheaper and way easier than paint! Just to give a little pop of color. I always at least try to use home decor fabric-since it is thick, can handle wear and 2 boys…also washes great!
I love new babies. their baby smell, their baby toes, their baby clothes…and making baby signs for their baby rooms –I am headed out to see a friends new baby he is 15 days old and oh so cute…with OH SO MUCH hair!!
(hoping to get some cute baby pics up soon)
I got some–I got some
look at those baby toes
such a sweet face
he loved that he “made” him fall asleep
Brayton just absolutely adored him
we can TASTE it I can’t tell you enough how much I love berries/fruit, taking the boys berry picking, making jam, and just overall enjoying what earth grows for us. I am so excited for this summer, my goal is to can as much as I can…or as much as I can store
We don’t have a “garden” like I would love yet..we have too many trees which in turn equals too much shade-but we do have a strawberry plant that the boys LOVE! Yesterday Brayton and I got 5 yummy yummies.
My mom used to can a lot so our goal this summer is to start with green beans, then i believe it’s cherries, plums, jams, pickles, peaches, pears, (and anything else I forgot). I am excited to get to spend some time in the kitchen with her.
We have been running around like chickens with our heads cut off, I should know better because every year June 1st it always seems like life gets a little crazy. Our next couple months looks like this… 6 days of kindergarten left for Mr. T, one month and 7 days till his Bday party, and in between is Father’s day, my father-in-laws 60th bday, motocross races every Thursday, (our washer quit) and to top it all off I have been working a LOT more the past couple weeks, with graduation right around the corner we have been CRAZY busy!!
I have managed to get a few things done this week though–I made a tote for Trenton’s teacher, we will give it to her the last day of school. I am SO proud of the way it turned out.
I got the pattern from my favorite place to get tutorials, MADE she is so clear on her directions, she adds TONS of pictures, and her fabric choices are so stinkin’ cute. (while I was sewing the bag up I had Trenton scroll down the page on the tutorial for me, he said, “oh this looks easy momma, you just sew the fabric, then sew the other fabric, put one of the bags inside the other one, add handles and sew it again, DONE”) I couldn’t have said it any better than that myself, she does make it look super easy, and it was. It took me maybe an hour total-and that’s with interruptions from 2 boys the part that took the longest was cutting the pieces out.
I have to get some more ink…(seems like every time I need to print something I have to get more ink) but I am printing this cute little tag to go on the outside of the bag,
go print one here
I am probably going to pick up the stuff for the inside this afternoon, I was thinking cute pens, hand sanitizer, little pocket pack Kleenex, maybe a magazine, and a chocolate bar I will try to take a picture of the completed project before we give it to her!
I have been trying to cook healthy, save money, and get food on the table before 6 pm..so my answer is freezer preparing. That is what I have chosen to call it because I don’t usually have to “cook” much before it goes straight into the freezer.
