Get Your Craft On

I am so excited to start this week. I can't say exactly why.

It could be the wonderful treasures I received from my mother in law.

I have great plans for them. I am thinking of painting the metal base of the glass bowl holder black. Also, the funky orange/brown bowl would look lovely as a white dish. I am a little nervous to play with the spray paint, but I have to say, I have been bitten by the craft bug. Something I never thought would happen. Experimentation is half the fun! I can't wait to see what I decide to do, and how it turns out.

It could be that I finally finished the Christmas gifts for our parents.

I hope they like them! I had fun working on them. They turned out nothing like I hoped, but that is because it was my first attempt. I did get to use power tools with this one... mainly an electric sander, but I felt pretty darn powerful with it. Lots of fun even if it doesn't look how I had envisioned it. I figure, the more crafty things I do, the more adept I will be with them. Besides, I think they are pretty cute regardless.

It could be that we finally figured out what was causing Faye's rash.

A few weeks ago, Faye pooped on our comforter so we had to switch it out with our other winter blanket. Around that time she started to get what we thought was baby acne. But it kept getting worse and worse. We saw that it was especially bad after her naps. Making us think it was just heat rash. But the rash was on her face so much, we crossed heat rash off. It wasn't acting like a simple heat related problem. And then yesterday morning it dawned on me. The poor girl must be allergic to our blanket! We have a lovely goose down filled blanket that Jeffrey got in Australia on his mission. It is so warm and wonderful for the Winter months! Sadly, we will be putting it back in storage now, and hoping that is the only thing she is allergic to.

Or it could be the fabric I got at the craft store. I cannot wait to play with it. I am eager to show off what I am planning on making. After it is finished, of course. Mainly because I am too lazy to get up and take a picture of the fabric. Sorry.

This is Faye and me anticipating the coming week. The funny thing about this photo is I couldn't keep my eyes open. I kept anticipating the flash. At least Faye has her big blue beauties open.

I guess I am just pumped to get my craft on this week. If anyone has any great projects or ideas, let me at them. I can't wait to get the creative juices flowing!
