At least for the summer anyway. Does that make me a bad Mom that I feel that way??? Especially in light of the fact that I have one child, albeit with multiple personalities, which makes it seem like many, many more. Ok, she hasn't been officially diagnosed with multiple personality disorder, but I have strong suspicions. In my desperate trepidation in which I face the next 2 months, I went and checked out Rosie O'donnells Crafty U book for kids, and let me tell you, if you want to make your life more difficult and messier, go out and buy this book, and do the projects inside with your kids. I wanted to be able to keep her occupied for awhile independent of me, that was the point. I work at home for goodness sake. Sheesh. Ok, in case I'm sounding like the most unmotherly mother around, how's this for motherly?
Yep, I baked cupcakes for her last day of school, and wrote all the names of the student's on them. C-R-A-Z-Y.
We have been busy 'round here lately. Liv had her dance recital Saturday night, and here are a couple of pics of her in her jazzy costume. (I'm crossing my fingers she picks ballet next year...)
I'm also getting ready for a craft show on Saturday, which I decided to do at the last minute. So I'm sewing like a maniac trying to get a respectable number of items to sell. I also am very unprepared for the logistics of the whole thing, like display arrangements, tables, clothes, etc...I've only done one show before, so I'm not really proficient at it. Everything is at such loose ends, I can't actually picture myself pulling this off. I may go mad in the process. I'll let you know.
Here's a couple of new purse designs I've made for the show:
I'll have a full report after the show...if I'm still sane that is.
