I had a blah weekend…
picture lots of moping around
and even thoughts of deleting my blog all together.
There were a few different things that triggered it…
but a really good friend:-)
convinced me that I would be crazy
to give up doing something I love doing.
This blog has been a great creative outlet for me…
sometimes I feel like I bore everyone
that lives near me with all my crafts.
Blogging has been so awesome
because I can share my craftiness…ie. craziness
and baking with people who love to read about it.
So, the blog will continue:-p
Even my kids love crafting…
here are their Awana cars for the big race.
Cam designed his own car this year and won 1st place in overall design.
Every year my poor kids struggle with winning races…
so we googled it and found out how to make the wheels go faster.
It really worked!!!
Cassie and Caedon were in the top 6 for speed,
and Cassie took 3rd in her division in speed.
It was a good year for the Grand Prix…
except for my little guy…
he came home and cried because he didn’t win a trophy like the older 2.
My sweet girl went in her room and got one of her old ones and gave it to him.
It made his tears dry up right away….
makes a momma proud to see how sweet they can actually be to each other.
(usually they are trying to get on each other’s nerves big time)

Some more craftiness…just because:-)
I helped decorate for a shower this weekend.
And since I have seen a ton of coffee filter pom poms everywhere…
I wanted to try my hand at them.
They are super easy and sooooo cute.
Now I don’t recommend the natural filters…
I think they looked like hanging brains:-)
But the colors went with our old fashioned theme.
Don’t look too closely at the picture…
there should have been another set of 3
in the very middle, but I ran out of filters:-(
I am definitely going to make more of these for my daughter’s room,
but I will be dyeing them purple and pink…
how fun will that be?
Yup, definitely looks like a brain or maybe a sea sponge???
