i just wrote a blog entry and was feeling all warm and fuzzy about my fellow Fiskars comrades…when—
It's gone. That is very…very…annoying. 🙂
But I will smile and go on…and I will rewrite that post another time…I totally lost my train of thought!
As I was looking at Facebook last night and a few blogs– of course people were voicing their political views, etc. I have to tell you…I shy away from politics. Didn't watch an ounce of it yesterday…but just thinking about what's really important to me in my life right now. I'm glad there are lots of folks out there who want to change the world…My thinking is…CHANGE starts at HOME. And that is my focus. My family…if I can raise these kids an empower them with the knowledge and values that REALLY matter, then I've done my job. Trust me, I'm no MOTHER OF THE YEAR…in fact I'm pretty strict (but fun, so they tell me ;). But I know that this is my purpose here and now…and I'm trying hard.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
I've been struggling with a child who is just plain HAPPY! You say, "what?" yeah, she's happy. In her own happy little existence…so blissful in fact, many times– that she doesn't listen, doesn't follow directions, doesn't obey due to the fact that she's in la la land. Hmmm? You know what…she's JUST LIKE ME in so many ways. Seriously….I'm so happy she's happy, but I am trying so hard to instill some responsibility and accountability into her. My motto is …"just do the right thing." …you know what the right thing is…YOU KNOW. So don't you think if everybody in the world just did the right thing, that we would see some serious CHANGE? I do. So that's my little, minute contribution on how we might make the world a better place. 🙂
And that's all I have to say about that. :) Except that I totally loved Stacey Kingman's blog about RICH GIRL PROBLEMS. I'm totally gonna use that one on my girls!
Now that I've saved the world in no uncertain terms…LOL…on to more scrappy stuff. So I've got to clean my scraproom today…and I already know that I have THESE to give away:
I'm sure I'll find a few more goodies to give away. Just post a comment on here…I'd love to hear your parenting advice if you feel like sharing!
Wanna see a picture of me when I woke up this morning?
LOL! Speaking of…I've still been getting up early…today I kinda slept later –till 7 am. But I'll get back on the wagon tommorrow…I love having that quiet time in the morning with Scott. He's such the conversationalist in the a.m…NOT!!!
And finally- I thought I'd share a pic of my new photograpy studio. For the low price of $2 (not including camera, flash, mixer or knife set :) I set this up.
Two pieces of foam core board (purchased 1/2 price at Michaels–one for the bottom and one for the background), one little nook in the kitchen, bounce the flash off the ceiling…it works great to take photos of your crafty projects with a seamless white background, kinda like a white box.
Hey! Did anyone notice I now have switchplate covers? LOL!
