31 Days of March

Okay- here we go.

So I have written three lists the past few days. The first one ended up being almost purely house projects I wanted to finish. As I looked over the list, I got really disillusioned and thought "wait a second, I was hoping to get some fun things done this month and this all looks like a bunch of chores I keep putting off." So then I made another list that was all fun. And then I felt guilty and decided that maybe I should merge the two. Then Brook took the list and colored on it and hid it somewhere that only she knows, so I'm going to wing it!

Here's my March:
1st-- Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies
2nd--Mod Podge Shoes
3rd--Cross-stitching a Sweatshirt *repeats each Wednesday*
4th--Paint 6-panel doors
5th--Tutu T-shirt & Onesie
6th--Caulk moulding in Hallway
7th--Chocolate Fudge Layer Cake
8th--Fix Living Room Curtain
9th--Crocheted Bow Headbands
11th--Cardigan Makeover
12th--Paint Laundry Closet
13th--Caulk Laundry Closet Trim
14th--Hot Corn Dip
15th--Organize Pantry
16th--Set up Food Storage Tracking Plan
18th--Redo Kitchen Board Saying
19th--Make Ornament Wreath
20th--Caulk Living Room Beadboard
21st--Chocolate Cups
22nd--Painted Jeweled Tops
23rd--Recover blue suitcase
25th--Make Playroom "Art Gallery"
26th--Pearl Necklace inspired by Cookie Lee
27th--Plaster Roses
28th--Chocolate Sea Salt Truffles
29th--Make Playroom ABC Art
30th--Nursing Cover

I've included links to all the projects I've found from various blogs that I'll be working on this month. Some of them I'll be following closely- others are just inspiration! Hey, if you get inspired by any of these, gather the supplies and do it with me!

P.S. I'm on the hunt for a good kitchen saying- anybody got some help for me there?

March 2010

I have a plan. I have been thinking lately at how I often come up with wonderful ideas and projects that I want to accomplish, but somehow they aren't materializing like I would hope they would. So I thought over this and decided that March is my month! Here's what I'm going to do.

I've made a list of 31 projects that I want to accomplish- one for each day. I'm going to calendar them and post the list. I'm hoping it will help keep me responsible for doing them and I think having them organized will also help with the "what should I do today... " as I blog search and lose track of time, then just give up completely after wandering aimlessly for 2 hours.

So expect the list to appear on February 28th!

Anyone want to join me?

Happy Valentine's Day from the World's Cutest

Now picture a lollipop in Brook's hand. I had to just post the original picture because the picture that I took of the picture? Not so much- it really didn't turn out. But I loved the idea- found it several places on bloggyland. Got to LOVE everyone's creativity out there! My new favorite site? This gal finds it all for you! She has a great archive too! So organized!

Fun Weekends & Whiners

Don't you just hate when kids get sick? Brook had bronchitis AND pink eye last week. Both! At the same time! Shockingly enough, Ellie never caught either of it! Hallelujah! Anyway, we went to McCall for Ben to go skiing and us girls to hang at the cabin for a relaxing weekend with Ben's family. It was really nice to get out of town and just enjoy some snow and guilt-less crafting, since I wasn't surrounded by my dirty house calling out to me to clean it! Hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend!

Potty Training

**UPDATED** Thank you dear friends for your support! She just decided on Saturday that she was a big girl and hasn't had an accident since! Let's hope it stays! Thank you for your advice! It was all wonderful!

Oh My Gosh. I hate it. Seriously, why can't they just instinctively learn how to use the potty when they reach the age of two!?!?!??! We were doing so good for the first few days and now she has yet to actually do it right for the past two days. Nothing but wet pants. And some other pretty horrible situations. I am totally at my wits end with it! I feel so frustrated too because I KNOW she knows when she has to go now and she knows she should be doing it in the potty, but she just doesn't!!! Any tips from you other way better moms out there?

I came out of my craft room to find Brook reading Ellie a story- sisters are the best!
