Party in Your PJs #175

Party in Your PJs

Sorry, I’m running late!  I just got home from a 12-hour workday and I’m way behind.  You know, one of those days where everything seems to go wrong.  That’s all right though, it’s all good and tomorrow will be a better day!

But because I’m late, I’m not going to rattle on about anything else, I’m just going to jump right in with my featured blogs from last weeks great party.  First I’m featuring Wendy at My French Twist and her Macrame Wall Hanging. Read more….

macrame wreath

I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that I happen to be a 70’s girl.  Led Zeppelin, 8-track tapes, Star Wars, and lava lamps were popular, but do you remember what craft was also popular in the 70’s?  Yes, macramé!  I love macramé and I couldn’t be happier about the fact that it’s making a comeback.

DIY Blog Challenge

I joined the DIY Blog Challenge this month and the theme for the month is fall/autumn.  It’s the perfect theme for me, I can get a project finished while there is actually still time to use it before we’re on to Christmas! Read more….

Crafty Destash ChallengeI am so excited to participate in the Crafty Destash Challenge this month!  I started digging through my craft supplies trying to come up with ideas and found a package of plastic paint palettes that I had bought for the grandkids to use and here they were still in the unopened package.  But they did spark an idea!

I’ve been working on redoing the grandchildren’s bedroom at our house.  One of the things I’ve planned is for one wall to focus on their creative endeavors including canvas paintings by each of the grandchildren.  So now my thought is to do an artsy wreath with the paint palette and some brushes attached.

Party in Your PJ’s #174

Party in Your PJs

 

Here in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia fall seems to be arriving very quickly.  Some trees are still green, some are starting to show color and some have lost their leaves!

I do love fall, but if it comes and goes at this pace it’s going to be over and the trees bare before we know it! I’m not ready for that.

Fall brings with it lots of fun family things you can do together.  Here are just a few of the ideas I’ve come up with: Read more….

Sentence a Day Writing Challenge…. August 2017

Sentence a Day

 

This is the second month that I’ve participated in the Sentence a Day Writing Challenge.  I’ve tried my hand at journaling in the past, but have never been able to stick with it. This concept of a sentence a day seems to work for me!

So, let August begin…

Aug 1st – Is a Tuesday, so today I am working which means I am visiting my patients and hoping to make a difference in their lives!

Aug  2nd – I sent a text to my son early this evening and received this response “on my way to the ER, Jacob broke his arm”, so immediately we were off to the ER to check on him where we found a super brave 5-year-old little boy waiting to be seen by the doctor. Read more….
