When the kid goes to bed, the clock starts ticking. I only have two hours to do chores and such before he wants to wake up and demand my attention. So I set out to start on the dishes but then I get tired and I go sit on the computer. Do I go write a blog post that I have been meaning to work on? Of course not! I browse Facebook, Pinterest and now Twitter and think to myself that maybe I should do something productive, but I rarely do. I don’t even know what I’m doing that wastes my time but the next thing I know I’m hearing the kid screaming to get up, and my time has run out. Today my goal is to be a little productive during naptime today and tomorrow so I can be ready to get my carpets cleaned and go on a trip this weekend.
Here are some things that I did when I was actually productive this month, hopefully next month I will have even more to show you!
Halloween Towel Band
Easy No-Sew Ghost Banner
Ghost Candy Stand Decoration
ACU’s from Daddy’s
Red Riding Hood
Writing on the Closet

Not much crafting was done this month, I must have been too ambitious last month, and was tired of crafting and blogging this month. I have to get back in gear though, because I get to go to Bloggy Boot Camp soon!
I was able to change up my blog design a little bit, and I created a Facebook page. Here are the few of the crafty/bloggy things I did do in between laziness and being sick.
Celebrating my Arizona Mama Anniversary
Halloween Costumes (Cowboy Woody, Angry Birds Beanie, Spiderweb Headband)
Trip to the Farm
Great Ideas (Using a Suitcase as Decorative Storage, Kitchen Towel Band)
Trench Coat Altered with Corset and Ruffles
DIY Vinyl Gun Decals

As of this month, I have been writing for Arizona Mama for one year. It started off with my decorated burp cloth and kept on going from there! Take a look at my most viewed articles in this year.

Thanks for all of your support and your views, hopefully this next year will be just as productive as last year!
I had a good August, but I did a ton of traveling! The time I spent here was a little crazy but we did make it to the Queen Creek Olive Mill, here in Arizona. While I was home I was also able to create a few other things to make our travels easier. I hope your August went well, and that you don’t mind taking the time to look through some of my posts from this month. Thanks!
