What a busy few days it has been for me. This is the last week of summer before school starts. Sorry that I missed this week’s Tool Time Tuesday. But I had a really good reason. My oldest is away at girls camp for the week. As many of you might recall, we moved into our home nearly 5 months ago now. We had all sorts of plans of jumping in and getting the studio set up and the girls bedrooms all done and ready. Then came reality. We moved in and right away Riley’s bedroom was flooded….. just after I put in brand new carpet. *Sigh* So we pulled out part of the wall, repaired the damage in her room, repaired the roof where the leak was happening and thought we were good to go. Then…. the AC went out. So for all this time, the girls have been living out of their boxes and unorganized rooms. Riley’s bed was in the middle of the room and you could barely walk into her room. So on Tuesday, I got it into my head that it would be really fun to have her come home to a finished bedroom. I painted ALL Freaking day on Tuesday (hence, no tool time tuesday.) I still have a few touches to put into the room and it will be done. She comes home tomorrow afternoon. I can’t wait to see her face.
Monday all the girls start back to school on Monday. Even my baby will be starting full time preschool/daycare. This will allow me to have the days to work on things and then be a mom in the afternoons when they all get home from school.
Speaking of school…. For the month of August, the Synchroblog post was to be based on a pinterest pin that inspired us. Kate has really long hair and she is a total “princess.” She loves it when I do fancy things to her hair. I found this cute pin at: http://www.princesshairstyles.com/2013/08/half-up-hairstyle-fairy-wings-braid.html and she wanted me to try it immediately. Now, keep in mind, that I did this quickly this morning and it was the first time we had tried it. So it will be nice when we get to school. But still, Kate is in love with it and loves me for doing fun things to her hair.
The Artists Synchroblog (August) – The Artists Synchroblog is a group of
bloggers who post every other month on the same topic, sharing our
experience or perspective. On alternate months we undertake a Pinterest
Project where we each take inspiration from a pinterest picture, create
something (art, a meal, a DIY project, etc) and then post about it. Be sure to visit some of the other bloggers that are participating.
