CRAFTING IN THE SUMMER?? NOT EXACTLY . . .



I've been sooooo busy trying to enjoy this time with my children and my husband that I've been totally delinquent in my duties, but read a few great booksamong other things. Before I know it, another year of school will begin and my youngest will start preschool so I'm excited for them but also a little sad. We've been camping, done the polar caves, story land, ocean trips, lake trips, swim lessons, ocean kayaking and more. I will post some


pictures and I promise that they won't include my shorts that I duct taped when I ripped them camping (it was kinda funny, but the pic wasn't mine and I'm certain it wasn't pretty, but i suspect that you can find that somewhere at www.happyhousequilts.blogspot.com)! I've eased my way into crafting with a shirt for Kristen also a sweater I've begun for her in single crochet (ugh, what an idiot, it'll take FOREVER!). Finished the two purses I cut out weeks ago and may list them on ebay today since they're having a listing fee special. Might pull a few etsy items that are stale and see if they'll sell there. Also donated a few things to Loudon Old Home Day PTA silent auction where 100% of the proceeds when to PTA so I hope they did well! I did make a very lame boat when I was camping for our first annual handmade boat race down the stream. I competed against 3, 5 & 7 yo's and I LOST in a very big way! As always, thanks so much for checking out my babble and have a happy day! Now, if only I could figure out this tagging thingy?? . . .
