I have seen the faux metal wall hangings that some people have made. I love them and thought that I would give it a try. This cost me not one penny! It is made out of toilet paper rolls. It took a little bit of time to measure and cut and swirl all the rolls, but I am glad I did it. I just hung it up with a few clear push pins.
This little jar brings back SOOO many memories! My grandpa always used to drink this and it was such a special treat to sit down with him and have a cup of Postum. We always had to drink it the right way. There always had to be a breath of "awww" at the end of every sip. Last time I was at my grandma's house, I noticed that she still had a jar she has been savoring in her cupboard. Mind you, this was discontinued in 2007 :) Well out of curiousity I googled Postum and it lead me to an Amazon link where someone was selling ONE jar of Postum for $150.00! I could not believe it. Then I found Postum website and they are re-releasing it in the Winter of 2012. I am looking forward to getting a jar and teaching my kids the proper way to drink it. I miss my grandpa and I think even having a jar in the house will make me happy.
First of all, I don't want it to come across as I have a terrible life, but lets face it motherhood is NOT easy. I love my children (and my husband) and when they all listen to me, things go very well. Why can't they just realize that? lol - Sometimes I read a quote that I just needed at that moment. This happens to be one. Next time instead of going into the bathroom and screaming at the top of my lungs and then walking out calmly, :) I think I will step outside and get some air and think.
I love music! Somehow it always make me feel better. Here are two songs that I love.
These are just a few things that have been keeping me busy lately. I have been wanting to make this balloon wreath for birthdays for a while. I love the way it turned out and it will be so fun to hang this up for birthdays throughout the year. Here is a wreath that I made for Easter. I don't know why, but I have really gotten into wreaths lately. I think it would be fun to have one for every holiday.
This is Addy. We made easter baskets out of a paper plate. The kids loved carrying them around all afternoon putting the eggs in and taking them out over and over.
Every year on this day for many years she has made an appearance for Jason's birthday. My mom made her for Jason as a joke and she has become "part of the family". Poor Mable had been transported to different places, placed in his truck and hung up so many times that we had to retire her last year. Jason only got a birthday e-mail from Mable this year, but it was still fun to hear from her. Happy Birthday Jason!
