Althought I haven't gotten asked this one word (why) by Chloe yet, I can feel it coming I thought I would Answer the question I have been asking my self for this past year, Why do I do all this crafty stuff?

As simple as I can say, it's because it's a) It's Cheaper than Therapy. b) Cheaper than rx drugs, although dr. pharm d. Daddy says other wise. (most of the popular ones are on any $5 lists)

The real reason why I love to craft and create things is that I hardly make any rules for my self when I do craft. who cares if I make a mistake on something, it was meant to be. Opps a big paint, glue, ink, blob got on to my work, oh I'll well make it work. I seem to enjoy not worring about the small stuff that comes into my life, and when it comes to my "work". I also enjoy the feeling that wow I took this ____ materials and made that! I love it. I also seem to forget about the every day stuff that goes on, and channel that creativity to what really matters my family. So This post really should be a big huge thank you letter for Gar to let me stay home and keep our house a happy home. As Picasso said " Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. That is what I live for.

Some of the things I have been creating this past month, Post of what or how I did this to come, and more

A Hoddie towel, you can't seem to have enough of these...
yes that horrible wall is now covered in a fun shade of purple, and yes I made that curtian, it's made from Eyelet fabric and I love it. Thanks MS (Martha Stewart) for the pattern/advice, from her new encyclopedia of fabric crafts

Chloe Approved Taggie blinkies, (I made one for little miss but doesn't like it) so I went straight to her fav taggie blankie and copied it and sure enough she didn't want to let go, (these are not for her although she should have a back up one.. I am still holding on that she will use the one I made her.)

A Chalk board desk, Chloe loves it! So do all the other kiddos that come to visit

You can sorta see it, the Lilly flower that has finally surfaced. I know this is not my conventional crafty thing but since spring we have been getting the water right to grow these beauties!

And lastly my little herb garden/back yard oasis! I love having fresh herbs just the other night I cooked chicken breasts and snipped some fresh rosemary for the seasoning and wow, I tasted like something you ate at a nice snazzy restaurant! I love taking care of my little herb garden.

I love the crafts you have made. Wish we lived closer and I'd come over to have you teach me all those awesome things. I think your pond is cute. What fun to have!
