Lovin it :)

It's been wonderful so far. Waking up when I want to... well when my kids do but still, no alarm clock. :) Reading a book for the first time in 4 years, spending our days at the Highland splash park and working on my projects. I love it!
My sister was in town last week and went with all of us to Idaho for a family reunion. We had a blast!
Canyon has had 3 soccer games and while the first 2 were a little rough to watch this last one was so much better! He has another one tonight and he's actually excited to go and to "make 16 kicks". That's his goal.
I signed up for the Battlecreek Boutique again and it's in mid October. I'm excited to introduce some new things I've been working on and to actually have time to really get ready for it.
Canyon starts preschool a week from today and we're getting really excited. We have most of his school clothes bought alon with his backpack so he's ready to go. We get to go to back to school night on Thursday. I really can't believe that he is going to be in Kindergarten next year, its crazy how fast time has flown by!

Yesterday was my first "stay at home mom" day. I don't know if it was becuse I have a giant "to do" list in my phone that is 3 scrolls long or if it was the sense of freedom I was experiencing but... I deep cleaned my room, Canyon's room, Savanna's room, the kitchen and the car. I also tried a new recipe for dinner which turned out to be fabulous and completed two craft projects on my list. It was so awesome!!! Today I am feeling a bit lazier and I'm looking at today's "to-do's" and wondering if I will make it through half of the list. We will see I guess. But I am happy and content and excited to be home. :)

This is my summer wreath that I've been wanting to get to for months and now here we are in the middle of August and I finally got to it! It turned out pretty good though and I'm very happy with it.
Materials: Styrofoam Wreath, Jute Hemp, Felt Flowers

This I've had designed forever and even had the glass and frame bought but finally got the vinyl cut for it yesterday and hung up.

Materials: Frame, Glass, Vinyl

Do you think this would sell? I made one for my mom too and she has 9 people in her family so I know how to customize it per number of people. What do you think?
