I did indeed rest all day yesterday. I missed a day of crafting, etc., but I did wake up this morning feeling much better. I even cleaned my craft room after I was done. Vacuum and all! Everything is in it's place and looking shiny new. Well, everything but my ribbon dowel. That thing is a nightmare and I think I'll wait to enlist some help. I have the wall unit thingy that so many scrappers have and I would love to meet the dingaling who designed the ribbon dowel for the bottom. Most of my ribbon spools are too small to fit. I sort of forced them on the dowel originally. Anyway, like I said - what a mess!
I have to find the video I watched for accordion flowers. I made my first one this afternoon and can't figure out how to get it to hold it's shape. It's looking more like a giant cupcake cup at the moment. I didn't trash it because I think I just wasn't listening to what the tutorial lady said at the end of her video. So back to You Tube for me tonight.
I`m having a rare break right now. The house is so quiet. All I can hear is the living room clock ticking and the occasional car driving by. The children all went to the mall to look for a date outfit for my oldest daughter. It`s not often that a mom gets this solitude. Heaven help me, but I miss them and I`m ready for them to return home. It`s a gorgeous spring day so when they get home it`ll be pork chops on the barbecue.
Seize the day!
