One of the first rules in blogging is nobody wants to hear you apologize for not blogging. Because I'm quite certain no one is waiting with baited breath for me to drop my next post so I won't apologize for being mostly absent.
Since the kids have been out of school, I, um, apparently don't have time to work anymore or much of anything else so that I can cart my kids around town to all of their activities. Right? You are in this same boat with me I'm sure...and I would not change
any of it most of it for anything in the world. There is just something about summer, unscheduled pool visits and late nights playing outside and impromptu ice cream stops that just make life very happy.
Via my iphone...and for the benefit of my kids someday, when they read this and when they complain to me about how busy they are with THEIR kids - oh please girls - your Momma has SOOO been there.
The videos we made for Simplicity will be available on their website, available to retailers and my understanding, at kiosks in JoAnns where they will be selling these Simplicity machines.
Candie does amazing felt work and jewelry designs that are fabulous! And she's a hoot! You should visit her blog and check it out - it was a whole new world to me to see the work she does.
Carolee was a blast to talk to - her daughters all work with her in her scrapbooking business that now includes fabric and ALSO clothing?! She has a boutique line that I love, love, love! You'll find Carolee's fabulous stuff here at AdornIt! Click on the Boutique section to see the fabulous clothing they have - I swooned!
I had to promptly hang it in my peas room afterwards...please tell me your kids have hundreds of stuffed animals on their beds too, right?
As a reward, we let the girls get ice cream from the ice cream truck. It was funny because my girls were like, "What's that music? What is that??" - living in the country, they had not seen an ice cream truck before. They loved it!
In between all of these things in the last two weeks I tried, although not very well, to work at my day job too (had to take vacation days just to take care of my family!). If you've emailed me or requested something...I will get to it eventually but it would be a good idea to message me again as a reminder. Just sayin'...
I'd like to say things are winding down but swim, swim, swimming this week, 4H sewing clinic and sleep away camp later this week. PLUS...I may or may not be filming some sewing classes to offer online!
What are you up to this summer?
