Yeah, me too. I didn't even mean to this time! The second round for American Crafter is "House of Order" and it has got me spinning with ideas on all the order my house could be in. I am almost done with my project now, and I'm actually feeling very satisfied by it, but it is kind of a miracle that I've gotten anything else done!
I didn't realize how distracted I have been by this project until last night when I was putting O to bed. In an effort to stall her bedtime, she was making up things to tell me. Then, as I was leaving the room, she said, "Mama? Do you mind...um, can we have a date tomorrow?"
So, today, we planned a date.
While putting my things in order (not for the project, just in general...the organizing thing is kind of addicting!), I came across this little kit I bought on clearance (50 cents!) at the end of the Halloween season last year.
So, our first order of business was to decorate.
Sorry about the blurriness of the pictures. She was so excited, I couldn't get her to hold still!
Here is our mantle:
Then, we put up a "tent,"
And watched a movie.
It was a good time.
I apologize if I have neglected any of you with my distraction. If it helps, feel free to put up a tent, pop popcorn, and watch a movie while imagining I'm there with you. I don't mind.
