Catching up...

...whew! Lately it feels like that's all I've been doing! I'm not complaining, mind you, I'm loving the busy-ness of things. Busy always beats being bored, I'd like to think. Remember the early days when I'd have five posts for one day? LOL...it's been a while since I've done that hasn't it!?

Lately it's been feeling like there just aren't enough hours in the day. If only the day could be like, twenty-EIGHT hours instead of twenty-four, I might feel like I was able to do everything that I meant to do in that one day...I've taken to getting up an hour early just to fit in a few more things that need to get done, but my sink is STILL full of dishes and my laundry baskets are STILL overflowing. Interesting...

But I hope all you mommies out there had a wonderful Mother's Day! I know you're mommies every day but it's not every day that people take the time out to let you know what a wonderful job you're doing! And I definitely know you are because I can't babysit my niece without feeling stressed out and tired - and that's in the first ten minutes!

Here's some projects that I did for our Mother's Day - which ended up being at our place because everyone was laughing at me when I tried to make reservations for Sunday brunch the Friday before...yeah well, I had to try. So our place it was for a BBQ and basically, I took everything that wasn't supposed to be in the living room and I THREW it in every other room that had a door that I could CLOSE! It was definitely a hectic day!

Pictures, pictures (definitely on the picture-heavy side, don't say I didn't warn you!)

Card I made for my SIL

My very FIRST explosion (or is it exploding) box! This one is for my MIL. Bad idea to start making exploding boxes three hours before people are supposed to arrive.

This is my exploding box for MY MOMMA!

...and these are my BEAUTIFUL little boxes that I made with TBBM!

A close up of the little cutie patooties!

And these are what's inside them!!!

Anywho...work is a-calling. I'm training a new person today and you do NOT want to hear the stories about that! LOL...thanks for looking!
