These past few weeks have been a whirlwind! My oldest started Kindergarten, and my other is in preschool at the same time. With a few hours to my self during the week, I thought I'd be able to get quite a bit of work done. Instead, I find it even harder to be able to sit down at the computer. The excitement of going to the store by myself has kept me occupied, and yet I still have no idea what to make for dinner :)
Along with trying to balance 2 new school schedules, homework, work and play - my kids came up with an unexpected 'to-do' on their list this past weekend. Last Thursday, just a few minutes before having to leave for school, my little girl spotted the biggest black widow I think I have ever seen, casually crossing our living room floor. Of course, the kids wanted to keep it! I bottled it up for the time being while I did a little research on how to preserve them, and on Saturday we pinned it up for display. My house just got a little more creepy and little more ready for Halloween ;) My little guy has been asking if we can hang it up next to his bed. Ummm... Although I'm not quite sure where it's going to go yet, I wouldn't want to wake up next to this every morning!
I recently added about 60 bolts of basics from Michael Miller:
Mini Chic Chevron
and (Practically) all of the Cotton + Steel basics.
(6 bolts are on back order)
I also picked up the new box set of Riley Blake Basics Aurifil collection. This collection features 12 colors that match perfectly with Riley Blake core basics of solids and shades.
