What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

On a Roll

Finished cleaning out the armoire and changing clothes over. One more check off my to-do list.

I went up to the attic in search of newborn things and was sad to realize I can't find my newborn girl bin and that much of the newborn BOY things are riddled with yellow staining. I *know* I wouldn't have packed away clothes stained like that. Weird. Guess I will have to head back up there again sometime to scout out that girl bin---and guess I will have my work cut out for me if Smooch is boy!

I did find a few neutral gowns and a "coming home" outfit for either a boy or a girl.

Glad to have that project done and over with.


Yesterdays' all day craft marathon was not as all-day as I would have liked:

Got a late start.
Stayed up town longer than I would have liked.
Came home to a cow escapee.
Spent time getting grain to lure the rascal back in.
Had to fix the fence.
Meanwhile, cut open my ankle on the fence.
Then had to clean it up.
Then had to go out and rehang half the laundry line that had been pulled off in his naughtiness. (Thankfully, no clothes were ruined.)
Finally got into my craft room.
Worked for 2.5 hours...
Used up ALL my hotglue.
Realized I had only bought about 1/3 the tulle I needed.
Then had to meet Matt.

That was the day.

Despite all the distractions, I was able to finish a few super-duper cute projects. (awwwww)

And I am on a roll~I have a two hour rest time window I am going to utilize to keep that ball a'rollin' as soon as I hit the publish button.

I am resigning myself to SMALL projects these days. No marathon coming-home outfits in my future. But that is okay. I am having fun with the small things.

Barring no baby, I will show off some of the projects every day next week! yay!
