I am a mom of older children and have noticed that the time has come when I do not have the hustle and bustle of little ones constantly around my feet and life now seems to be a bit of a let down. Well life has changed and now I have more hustle and bustle then ever. I am the Grammy Nanny to my 3 grandsons.
I was savoring the time that was mine and now have to share it with everyone all over again. The growing pains are upon me again and trying to define who I am again. The upside is that I get to cuddle little ones again! I still haven't truly learned to hug myself yet nor to be understanding to my own feelings. Did anyone notice how hard it is to be nice and understanding to yourself? That being said I hope that you will be part of my journey into yet another part of my life.

A little embriodery fun

Here is a free printable pattern for embroidering mustaches. How fun and silly is that. How bout a bunch on the edge of a pillow case, a big one stitched on a sofa pillow. Would be fun.

This is seems like a fun thing to do at work or amongst friendly neighbors
You leave a treat with directions that you have been booed and then they do it to someone else.

What am I up too lately?

The next part of my life has brought me to be able to do things that I love. I am allowing myself to be creative. It is difficult but am loving the journey. It is so wonderful to meet other creative souls. It seems that when creative people come together there is a spark that flows between each other and really grows to a warm and inviting fire. I love seeing what other people are creating and sometimes it is even more wonderful when I can look on thinking that I was able to help create a foundation for their creativeness. I have a Facebook page called What To Make Today and am trying to make it about sparking ideas for anyone to be creative. I am even expanding from Wilton Method Instructor to PaperEd instructor. This is so exciting to me. I meet some of the nicest people. Come visit me on Facebook and see the pictures of what my students are making.
I would also love to learn how to link Facebook with my blog and vice versa!!
