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.

Tote-Ally Awesome tote and Dandy Lions bouquet

I really wanted to enter the County Fair again this year but it just didn't happen. I was hoping to enter a paper bouquet of flowers but it just didn't work out.
I did make some totes for the teachers and little dandy lion bouquets for the end of year gift for my grandson's teachers. I bought the totes from AcMoore Craft Store and Added an iron on apple swirl monogram design on them. We also added little bouquet of dandy lions my grandson helped make. The tag was made by laying the plain brights that have been drawn on by the Silhouette using the sketch ability and gel pens. The monograms on the totes were a little difficult because the design on the bag was not straight. I didn't take a pic of the actual bouquet we gave the teachers. I wrapped the stems with ribbon and tucked them into the little change purse that came with the bags.

 I had so much fun making the dandy lions that I made a bouquet for me that I placed in a jar I had found digging in the yard. I Google dandelion leaves and created the leaf from an actual pic of a leaf.
I also made some tiny daisies to put in the little bouquets but don't have pics of that yet.
