Project Junkie

Saturday, July 10, 2010

I have decided that I like projects. I just plain love 'em. If my children have a project due for school that is remotely creative, I get giddy. If something needs to be assembled - despite the fact that I have a husband in the trades - I am ALL over it. I like hands-on, do it yourself projects. This includes anything that involves planning details. I also love planning parties and decorating. My latest small projects include door posters for my fifteen year old daughter and her camp roommate and a tent for my one year old. My larger projects include planning my son's doubleheader for double digits 10th birthday party and my oldest's 16th country western style party.

I would probably be far more intense if I didn't work full time and go to school. Would it be obnoxious if I talked my husband into a craft room/workshop? My craft cabinet is almost at capacity. I secretly long to be Martha Stewart. My dream is to be an accomplished photographer, graphic artist, interior carpenter and woodworker, painter, scrap-booker, stamper and interior designer. Oh how I love being crafty and artistic. Oh how I love projects.

Time to Breathe

Fourth of July. Happy Birthday to the United States of America! What a great time to be festive with the family. This year, both my husband and I had a three day weekend. Well, part of the family. Our oldest spent the weekend at her friend's new house. We purchased a great playhouse for the 1 year old, attended a parade, set off smoke bombs and snappers with the kids, and cooked out on the grill. A lot. We had breakfast and dinner on the grill. It was delicious! My poor diet is suffering. What an amazing weekend with my lovely husband and children without a schedule to follow. Time to breathe. :)
