So today I got up before the sun bent over and showed it's crack :). I was up cleaning. I know, I know you want to know why the hell would I get up that early when I do not have too to clean the house. Well because I discovered that getting up at 730 to get Super Hero N up for school was not helping me out. I was stressed and I ended up cleaning all day for some reason. So today I tried something new. I got up at six cleaned the living room and dining room (Super Husband cleaned the kitchen) and vacuumed. By the time I was done it was time to get Super Hero N up and I was less stressed...more tired but you can't have everything you want. This means that I am able to prep dinner earlier also.
I am back into Roller Derby, which I almost swore off of after the horrible experience in Germany but decided that I still loved the sport and was going to give it another go. Which ends up being the best decision I have ever made because I am in LOVE with Roller Derby. I love skating I love doing something physical and it gives me an interest outside of the ones I already know I love because I tried something new.
I bet you are wondering what craft I have been working on lately and I can tell you that I have been working on decorating my house. Yes, this is my first house and I want to make it pretty so I am taking care to make sure I do what I want so that I am not itching to change it after a couple of months. I am in love with accent walls and we have decided to do an accent wall for the living room/ dining room area. It will be Orange. I kind of want it to look like this:
But without the space furniture. Because most of the things in our living room and dining room are dark wood and black in color I feel it will give it the bright, warm feeling I have been craving in the house.
Besides the decorating my house in wild colors reminiscent of Punky Brewster I have been doing various projects for my little people. Super Hero L's birthday is coming up next month and I wanted to make him something along with the Leap Pad we are getting for him. So I found some Thomas the train fabric and I am making him a blanket. In the middle of the blanket I will have his name that will be made out of the fabric of his baby clothes. When I am closer to be being done I will post pictures and explain how I did it. I do some quick sewing last week because Super Hero L has been carrying around his monster everywhere
He wanted to put his Monster to bed when he does and asked for a pillow and a cover for his monster. So with fabric I had left over from other projects I put together a cover and pillow and here are the pictures of them.
In case you are wondering I made monster from a pair of derby socks I only wore twice because they were too tight. The boys got them last year for Christmas Eve. Super Hero L lost his eyes.....
I didn't do anything fancy with the pillow or cover but I did hand stitch everything which is much easier than I was led to believe.
Well I hope you enjoyed my projects I have one that I will be posting tomorrow that was for my in home preschool. For now please
