Once upon a time, I was a first grade teacher. Now, I am a happy stay-at-home Mommy to my almost-two-year-old Little Man. He is a handful, but he inspires a lot of creativity, too! When he sleeps, I craft. I am always trying new things, pulling out stitches, and laughing at all of my stupid mistakes. There are plenty of "oopseys" in my craft world along with the occasional "daisy", too!
Michelle wanted me to answer a few questions:
What is your favorite crafting tool or secret weapon? My secret weapon is definitely my seam ripper! I couldn't live without it. I am constantly making mistakes, so I need to rip out my stitches and start over again! Although I have figured out ways to use scissors and even my teeth, the seam ripper is my weapon of choice!
What color are your toenails? Yikes, this is embarrassing! I am in dire need of a pedicure. You see, every time my husband has been out of town for a while, I reward all of my single parenting with a pedicure! The leftover color from my last pedicure is a dark magenta color.
If you were a Halloween character, who would it be and why? A witch. A good witch... you know, like Samantha from Bewitched. I would love to just wiggle my nose and have things go my way! Especially when it comes to cleaning the bathtubs, emptying the dishwasher, ironing my husbands' shirts, oh yes and washing lettuce! (Just a few of my least favorite chores!) I would love to have more time to craft!
Here is a little peek into my world:
What better way to celebrate Halloween than with a tasty treat?! I recently made these Oreo pumpkins:
I just can't stop filling my tiny apartment with Halloween decor! I made this spider topiary
especially for my Little Man!
These 2 quiet books were my big project for the entire year! I also shared printable templates for 9 pages:
PLUS I recently began a fun "Mommy School" program for my Little Man. I share all my ideas on Saturdays, and I compiled all of my latest ideas into one giant "L is for leaves" packet.
I have been hoarding frozen juice can lids for weeks just so I could make this owl matching game.
Finally, I created this little Sunday ABC Book to keep Little Man occupied during church! Come by and print your own. This would be a great stocking stuffer!
I hope you will come by Oopsey Daisy and say hello! Every day is an adventure! Thanks so much, Michelle, for letting me give a personal tour of my little world!
