Daily tidbits

Well life as a mom is never boring!! Between soccer for Jojo and homework and church and playing board games and and and ....well you get the picture.

This weekend we had grandparents in town....that is always fun for the kids. They got to play extra games, go to the park then walk to get ice cream. It was super fun for them.

We also had the Easter production at church. After a week of long practices and four preformance I finally get my husband back. He runs the sounds (well helps anyway)! There were over 150 people involved. It was incredible.

When my in-laws were here my MIL and me did some extreme shopping. Between coupons and gift cards (and groupons) we made our like crazy. First at Fred Meyer we got a Wii game, an i-tunes gift card and lunch stuff for 9 people all for $16. Using a gift card, but still we were pretty happy. Then we went to a shoe store (dangerout). We used our groupons to get dansko's for $25 and $40 (she got sandles and I got clogs). Then I know there is more....we went to Papa Murphy's to pick up pizza and between my full stamp card and my gift card we got two family sized pizza's and bread sticks for nothing.

I am so proud of us!!

Well, that is my fun story for today!

I hope all is well in blog land. I hope to do a give away soon!

Crazy amount of fun!

So I have been super busy lately.

1- I feel like my fingers are pincushions for all the sewing that I have been doing. My husband jokes with me that I don't need a thimble, but a whole iron hand....maybe that is true. I have done my daughters easter dress, and some stuff for the shop. I am so exctied to say that I had my first sell yesterday...very happy about that!

2-My husband has been super busy with work related stuff. So lately I have felt like a single mom....but at least I know that after this week I will not be again....there is hope, a light at the end of the tunnel.

3- The Easter production practices and set set-up are in full swing at my church. So, that means that my hubby is gone for that (he does ligthing, sound stuff) I am helping with painting of the set and whereever else I am needed. This morning came a little fast.

Here is a really bad picture of Ladybug's Easter dress:

Thanks for 'chatting' with me....till next time!

Where have I been??

Well everywhere and no where!! With four kids life is a never ending battle for time and lack there of!! :) I have been sewing some projects, quilts and cloths for my little girl....and stuff I plan on trying to sell!! Etsy is a little overwhelming to me so many vender and so many items. I have no idea how to get notice there! Also I am not very good with pictures so that will not help my sales much....anyway! Easter is coming up and I will be spending more time at the church getting ready for our big production...that should be fun! Well ta-ta for now!
