Happy Weekend everyone!! I am gearing up for a day of watching my little baby nephew while my sis packs her house (moving day tomorrow). It's actually the first time I will have him all to myself. My youngest is 3, so it's been a while since I was in full on baby mode. A bit scared, but mostly excited. He's so adorable, it's impossible not to smile when I'm with him :)
I have been busy crafting lately. I had a few "pomathons" as they have previously been called. This is when I make a zillion pom poms in one sitting (usually while watching tv or a movie after the kids are in bed).
You can now find Patriotic pom poms
Etsy shop :)
YAY for happy pom poms!!
I also want to report that there is now a Hobby Lobby in the town over from me. Woohoo!!! AND, my mom got a job there (cha-ching...employee discount here I come). My sis in law and I could not be more thrilled to have this craft supply mecca in our backyard - finally!!! Here are a few things I picked up on my first trip to the "Hob Lobster." I used a gift card that my sis in law gave me for my b-day back in March (can you tell we have been dying for it to open, ha ha).
I got this cute rustic metal basket. It was $4 and then 40% off. Um - yeah. Awesome! Oh, and I also got a big bag of shells to fill that glass vase in the background. It came with that big shell on my stack of books too. I love me some summer shells :)
I got this cool burlap vase/candle holder. It has some sort of longitude/latitude stenciled on it. $6 - 40% off. Yep!
My regular priced item that I used my 40% off coupon on was this cool caddy. I plan to use it on my desk with glue gun sticks, pens, etc. I think it was $7.99 - 40% coupon. I can't wait to label it and get it loaded up :)
I also purchase my very first paint-by-number set. I am so excited to find a peaceful moment (RARE peaceful moment) to get started.
And lastly, I recently decided to switch all of my gallery wall frames to white and gold. They used to be black but I think the white looks much lighter and brighter. Perfect for Summer. The two wider white ones (top left and bottom right) came from Hob Lob. Frames are on sale there every day (which means they are marked up to begin with but ah well, what can ya do).
So, that's it. Wish me luck babysitting ;)
Check ya later gators! ha ha.
