I'm missing you all this week! I'm missing reading and commenting and checking in with my blog friends!! So I wanted to let you know what I've been up to instead. My forever first born's birthday party is tomorrow and I've been up to my ears in errands and projects. Here is a sampling of what's going on....
She's having a camping-themed party, complete with hike, cook-out, s'mores, flashlights...you get the idea.
So. I've been wearing these a lot. My crafting jeans. I LOVE them. They are like my security blanket. They are so worn in, so soft, so perfect. The knees are already shot, so I can be sprawled out on the ground cutting fabric or whatever in them. When I put on these guys, it's business time. Well, not that business time. Never mind.
Sewing sewing sewing.
Aren't you wondering WHY I'm sewing on a brown sock? Well. It's a great craft we're doing for the party. I love it so much I'll do a tutorial on cake & cotton next week.
Here's what else I sewed. So loving the banner. It's a lot longer, you just can't see it.
And I made two super long buntings to decorate the giant tent we'll have on the grass for the girls. Right now they're clipped up to the backyard umbrella so no dogs or small people maul them.
And I ripped a zillion of these strips. She picked out all this fabric for decorating. I'll take pics.
Here's a little of what I'm NOT doing. Some of these dishes are from a party I helped host....um....last Friday.
Yeah. There's a lot more that hasn't even made it out here yet. Next week's gonna be a blast.
And these darn things keep dumping out because no one can find the lid. I wanna throw them all away at this point.
So I'm closing my eyes to the messes for the time being, and I'm hanging out with these guys,
and these guys. (My husband is so artistic. He designed these logos for our "camp" shirts. The grown ups are wearing similar ones that say "STAFF" on the back.)
Which reminds me. I have like ten more of these to iron, so I better get back to it.
I hope you have a great weekend and I'm sure I'll climb out from underneath the dishes/laundry/party-shrapnel to say hello once or twice next week.
