October in Review- The Goal to Be Productive

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 Stuff:
Halloween Towel Band

Easy No-Sew Ghost Banner

Ghost Candy Stand Decoration

Costumes:
ACU’s from Daddy’s

Home Decor:

September in Review

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.

Halloween Costumes (Cowboy Woody, Angry Birds Beanie, Spiderweb Headband)

August in Review

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!

June in Review

I was able to get some stuff done in June that I have been wanting to do for awhile, the stuff on here is only part of it! It helps when I need to take pictures of parts of my house to do a blog post because then I will actually clean. I don’t think I have ever cleaned my laundry closet before!

I also was able to get around to changing my blog name, and url. If you still want to follow please re-subscribe. I kept the old blog around (even though it looks like this one) so that links to that one wouldn’t be broken. Thanks for coming back and checking it out! I was pretty excited about most of these projects.
