Its been a few days since my last post. I was pretty irritable that night. just a bit overwhelmed I guess. I'm fine now.. still have a ton of stuff to do. I guess I don't organize my time well.. mostly because I'm on the computer too much! anyways. I ended up taking Friday off from work.. We were pretty much snowed in. tony could have dug me out (umm.. I don't shovel.. unless absolutely necessary!) or I could have ridden in with someone, but taking the day off seemed like such a wonderful idea! I didn't really do anything too constructive, well, except that it did take me all day to put valentines away and get Easter out! And, I got started on some tags for a flower tag swap I'm in. I'm really not a paper artist.. so these tags are always challenging for me. But I'm glutton for punishment.. so I sign up anyways! the real problem, which has been a problem my whole life, is that I just cant stand the thought of anyone having fun without me!!!!
I guess, really I did have a fairly productive day.... sort of.
(notice the picture above? that's me, trying to get to the stove to make a pot of tea! This is why my hubby calls them Purana's!!)
So, it is now Easter in my house.. and in my head! I have dozens of Easter ideas rolling around and around up there.. probably wont get to all of them but well see what happens. I have a bunch of swappie things to do first!
I love this little bunny train, I made a couple years ago. Its one of my most favorite Easter things.. You know, I just like things to much.. and I have a ton of really cute stuff.. Every time a new holiday rolls around, I get sooo excited about digging out my bins and pulling out cute things all wrapped up in tissue and paper towels! but with that said, if I'm honest.. I do have to admit that all this stuff also overwhelms me a bit.. I wander around and around my house trying to decide what to put where.. and trying to remember where everything was the year before! It all comes together in the end.. but It really does take hours and usually days before its really done..
Even when I think I'm done, I'll be adding things and tweaking things here and there right up to and maybe even after the holiday is over! then I hate to put it all away again and saying good bye to so many cute things. eiy yie yie!
I got my bunny swap sign ups closed out and partners assigned and everyone should be ready to go! There were 23 really creative folks that signed up.. I even had one man sign up and an excellent artist besides! what a treat! I cant wait to see and to show you all what everyone ends up making.
I have a couple partners and cant wait to get started. Not too sure what exactly I'll be making yet. I have to finish up the tag swaps before I start the bunnies! I think I need to go shopping today.. I have a neat little glass terrarium that I need something perfectly cute to put in. I could make something, but I want to buy some stuff!!. I could wait and save it for what ever bunnies I recieve in the bunny swap! I'm thinking of doing up a miniature easter basket with sweet little things in it.. I do think thats what I'm going to do.. I'll show you when I finish it! wouldnt that be sweet?
So when I finally got through the kitchen paranas this morning and was able to make some tea and breakfast, this is what I ended up having...
It was sooooo goood!!!!! two nutrigrain frozen waffles with fresh raspberries sandwhiched between them. It was so yummy. I just wish now that I would have thought of adding some lite whipped cream on top! now I'm out of raspberries. I think I may have to stop and buy some more though.
I guess thats all for this morning bloggy friends.. I'll be trying to get caught up through out the week. hugs to you all!
Schmush'n a Kitt'n!
