Happy Valentines

Things have been busy as usual. 2 months and counting until my first show of 2013. I have been trying to get work done in between the day to day and church responsibilities, but today I decided to take a break when my little one came home from preschool. We played outside for a bit. It looks beautiful outside, but it was just to cold to stay out. We decided to come inside and build a tent. I use to love playing in these with my brothers when I was a kid. She has now officially eaten way to much Valentine candy and is a little wound up. The rest of the kids came home from school and now there is much laughter coming from under these blankets. They are now camped out for the night. I am excited that they have a four day weekend and I will get much time to play games and snuggle this weekend.
Saturday, we are headed to our friends house and while the kids have play time Melane and I will get scrapping time. I am looking forward to spending time with them and getting some much needed scrapping done.
Husband came home and told me not to cook or do the dishes, because tonight that is his gift to me. I WILL TAKE IT!  Just wanted to pop in and say Happy Valentines to all of you!
I'm off to have a glorious weekend with the kiddos.

I just can't get enough snuggle time with this sweetie. She has never been my cuddly one. She is always on the move, so I sure do soak it up when she offers.

Playing with Polymer clay

I can't believe how fast this year is already going. January was a rough month for me. My husband has worked a third shift job all the years we have been married and then he does the Ranch work during the day. This year he started working dayshift and it has been quite the adjustment. I didn't realize how much I relied on him during the day to take care of our youngest. She has preschool until 11:30am and he would pick her up and fix her lunch while I would run errands or get work done. In the last few weeks I have had to rearrange my schedule a number of times, because he would not be home to help with Christyn. I hope I will soon get a schedule down that will make both her and I happy. Also, this month my family was hit hard with the Influenza bug and that was no fun. My son injured his shoulder during wrestling and had to take the rest of the season off. It has been pretty hard on him. He is a super active kid and doesn't like not being able to participate in sports. Right now all he can do is run or weight lift his legs. He is not able to use his arm for 3 months. Okay enough about that...  Here are a few wonderful things going on. My workout schedule is officially back on track. Yipee! I am locked in for a few shows this year which I am excited about. I took last year off and really missed it, so I am going to give this a go one more time. I have been feeling super creative lately, which of course is always good news for me. I am just one of those people who is happiest when they are creating something. Speaking of are a few pieces I made last month. I haven't worked with Polymer clay for a while and just felt like trying some things out. I'm still not sure I will have these things available at the shows, but I might list them in my Etsy store. I would love comments about what you think. These would make great little gifts or even use them as cake toppers. Anyways, hope to have more projects posted soon. Thanks for stopping by!
