Why I shouldn't do laundry

Hello everyone.  Once again it has been too long since I last blogged but what can I say... I've been busy.  I got paid for the first time ever to sew something!!!  So exciting!  It was for those cushions I've been talking about forever.  And I forgot to take pictures but it was for my nana so I will take pictures at her house sometime soon. 

Alright lets get to the title of this post.  I really do not like doing laundry.  Mainly because of the amount of trouble the kids get into while I'm doing it. 

While I was doing laundry Maggie got into the fridge and helped herself and Alex to some chocolate pudding and then sprayed half of my bottle of hairspray on him.  And I did have a better picture of it but he is also COMPLETELY naked which was also probably with the help of Maggie.  Yikes.  I was only downstairs for maybe 10 min.  Sometimes I feel like it is dangerous to even blink.  lol
And maybe tonight I will post pics of Maggie's b-day present.  I was ALMOST finished making it when she decided wake up at 1:30 am and interrupt me :(  She is turning 3 and I am in denial.  Where did the time go?

Well have a good day everyone!

Mother's Day

Hi everyone!  How was your mother's day???  Mine was great!  I just wish I could have spent more time with my mother :(   I did get to spend the day with my wonderful family though and that always makes my day!  I took a bunch of pictures and about 100 of them are of fish.  lol  Trying to get a good picture of a fish in murky water is not easy.  But they were HUGE.  My kids had so much fun! 
Ok so Maggie had fun MOST of the time.  She hated the helmet! 
And Alex had fun but the helmet was so heavy that he had to rest it on the handlebars.  Poor little guy.  You sould have seen the HUGE smile on his face when we took the helmet off!
Everyone had fun just watching the kids through the windows because it was just too cold to be outside for long :(  This is Louis and Helen (my husbands grandparents) 
Here are the fish.  lol.  Seriously they were big!  My in-laws have this big old inground pool in their yard and they turned it into a pond and put fish and water plants in it.  And if you ask me I think it is much cooler than the pool.  :)

And drumroll please...........

I FINALLY finished a project.  Actually 3 but this is the only one I had time to take a picture of.  It is my mom's mother's day gift.  I made it using this tutorial.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!  And I hope my mom is too! 

Now unfortunatly I will be stuck working on couch cushions for my nana this week and so there will be no new creations for a while.  But I will try to post anyways :) 
Hope Everyone has a great week!
