I have to accept it, fall is here!
I've started working on organizing all my crafting goodies, but was itching to do something crafty yesterday. My 7 year old's applique shirt with her initial on it-that she wears all the time-is getting to small for her. I found this tshirt at Target on clearance and with a scrap of fabric, dressed it up a bit. Quick and easy and cute!

The corner of my bedroom and my closet shelves look pretty much the same.
Hard to work on a project at night when you know you're going to have to search for the supplies you need before you even begin.
So, I'm determined to become more organized or, well, at least know where all my craft supplies are at any moment.
Enter this cutie....
I got it from a friend who already had one and my husband is all set with his tools (yes, he has a workshop and has a garage for his stuff, but I don't resent that, not too much at least) and doesn't want it.
It has some really neat compartments and drawers that I think will be great for crafting supplies.
I can see all my bobbins in one place, scissors in another. Thread, beads, scrapbook paper, all with their own special place.
And I can bring it around with me from place to place and store it out of site when it's not needed.
How perfect is that!!

Just plain craziness with the back to school schedule, lots of meetings for me, some cell phone problems, a microwave malfunction, a washing machine that sprung a leak and my 10 year old broke her arm playing soccer at school.
Luckily, most of them were little annoyances.
Thankfully, my daughter is ok. Could have been worse and I'm just glad she's fine. After a trip to the emergency room followed by a trip to an orthopedic doctor, she's sporting a splint and sling. She's still in some pain and can't write because it's her right arm, but she adjusted to doing most of the things she needs to do and is getting more frustrated as the days go by that she can't play soccer for a bit.
And, since our laundry is piling high and ready to take over, brand spanking new today to my laundry room....
this baby, with the matching dryer. I'm not sure if I'm going to be doing laundry or taking off for the moon with all the buttons and lights and controls!

It's been a bittersweet, nostalgic, feeling like somethings out of place kind of week for me....missing the girls during the day and wishing school hadn't started....... .but then secretly being a little thankful for school when I'm enjoying the afternoon while my son naps and after they've been home for 10 minutes and already fighting with each other.
So...the baby and I have been hanging together.
Playing outside, taking walks, flying through the grocery store with just one child contained in the shopping cart.
He's happy he doesn't have to share any toys during the day.
But cries when we drop the girls off.
