Change of plans

I posted on my idea for organizing my craft area. I took the Target cubes back to the store today. When I bought them I did not know that the drawer rails were made of plastic. I just didn't feel that the plastic would hold up well to a lot of use so I didn't want to even assemble them and then they not last well. I bought 3 more Sterilite drawer organizers. A 4 drawer one and two 3 drawer ones. I'm hoping that I can get all my supplies in them and then use the 8 1/2 x 11 -3 drawer ones I can then use for all my wood mounted stamps.

Every time I try to get started organizing my mess I get so overwhelmed & frustrated that I end up giving up. I decided to day that I just need to pick one thing and straighten it up so I scanned a folder full of receipts today and then I trashed the originals. I had kept them so I could do a home inventory and so they are all scanned & added to the inventory on my computer. I found this free home inventory program online. Tomorrow I will decide on the next thing to do.

Unfortunately that is all I got organized today. Youngest had an allergist appt. this morning. We changed his doctor so they retested him and discovered that he is allergic to 35 out of 40 things. Also had his blood drawn for the first time. That was just loads of fun - NOT! Made my return to Target and then started going through the receipts. Both boys started karate this week. I am going to be at the karate school 4 days a week for the next 8 weeks. I have to get photos of them. They have each had 1 class each and bad mommy didn't take any pics yet.


  1. You will feel so much better once you are all organized. The hard part will be STAYING organized!

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Symptoms of Menopause:

Guess who is Sewing...

Look what I made!!! I have not done anything creative in a very long time. Don't ask me what made me decide to give sewing a go again because I have no idea. The pattern for this bag is from Alicia Paulson and is called Jane Market Bag, you can find it on her website for only $6. It was so easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend that you have a larger cutting surface and ruler to make it easier to cut the pieces out. My little 12x12 cutting surface and 6x13 clear ruler made cutting the pieces slightly difficult but not impossible.

Don't you just love the red fabric! I purchased the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a couple of years ago to make an apron and since I had some left over thought I would use it for my first bag. The pattern calls for the use of 4 different fabrics but I decided to just use the 3. The inside of the bag is lined with the same black and white check fabric I used on the handles. These are so cute & are a great size so I will definitely …

Must Read Monday: Reapers Motorcycle Club series

A friend turned me on to the Reapers Motorcycle Club series by Joanna Wylde and I loved it!! I was so engrossed in the stories that, not only did I pull all night read-a-thons, I actually dreamed about the characters. Definitely cannot remember being able to say that about any other books I've read. The dreams even included my hubby being a Reaper and me as his old lady which surprising seemed like a perfect fit for us. I will add that if you have a problem with rough sex or women being called "property" then these books will not be for you. 

Book 1: Reaper's Property tells the story of Horse and Marie. Marie's brother steals money from the MC and after Horse takes one look at Marie decides to kidnap her as motivation for her brother to repay the money. Even though I loved the series by the end I will say that this one was not my favorite book or couple and honestly I almost did not go on except for the reassurance from my enabling friend Janice that they got be…
