Craft Room Cleaning!

I came up with some more stuff for Ebay! I'm really in the cleaning and purging mood. I've got these lamp shades listed for .99¢! They are great for crafting on and the perfect size for a mason jar light.

Speaking of making mason jars into lamps, I've also listed these lamp kits at a starting bid of .99¢! Check out these items and more! I'm also busy on some new Easter items that I will hopefully have done to list next Sunday night.

And I had to share, we had spaghetti tonight, one of our favorites! Brileigh was trying to share with me when I was taking her picture.

Rylan is a very serious eater, and quick he double fists everything. No time for smiles when you're shoveling it in.

Awww Brett, I think the clean up took longer than the cooking and eating...

More Ebay Auctions

More spring cleaning! I am in the mood to purge! I'm clearing out more things and I'll be adding them to Ebay Sunday night. I've got 14 tea stained flour sack towels ready for crafting.

I'll also be posting these trees in one lot, they are 18" and 2'. Perfect for crafting with! I'll be starting the trees and towels at .99¢!!

I also made up some "redware" eggs to go in this old red wood bowl I had laying around! I made another set of eggs that will be listed in an old cheese box.

I'll be adding some paper clay creations as well. I've got 2 owls and a dog that will be listed tomorrow night. Make sure you check my other auction as I've got a lot of other things listed, some ending tomorrow night!

Lastly, my kiddo's snuck into my room the other day, I guess they wanted to "out do" the diaper disaster from the other day! Brett is the only one that I caught red handed, but they were all involved. Notice the empty toilet paper roll. Yeah that was a new roll only minutes before...

That's what it was outside today! When the kids woke up from their nap outside we went. They have luckily gotten over their fear of grass. That makes it a little more pleasant out there. We do need outside toys though. Not enough out there to keep us out of trouble. I spent my time raking leaves and other dead things from my flower garden, and raking up a winter's worth of dog poo. That is always such a fun job, so much more with three helpers!

And talk about helpers! When they hear me open the doors to the laundry, they come running! They love to "help" pull the clothes out of the dryer. Rylan was showing off again the other day...

We needed to get outside for sure. Inside was getting a little dull. Yesterday I assumed they were playing nice in their room. I finally decided it was way too quiet in there. I knew I was in trouble when I spied a couple of diapers in the doorway.

Sure enough we got ALL the diapers out! They did help me pick them up though.

Lastly I just finished this guy. I new design for this spring. I'll be adding him and a lot of other things to ebay tonight!

Secrets, Soup & Silliness

Hmmm, black paint? What am I up to? Black doesn't go with Spring Time!

What in the world? Here is just a small part of what I'm working on. But it's a secret...

I have to say I am in LOVE with crock pot meals. I can throw stuff together early on in the day and forget about supper until supper time. Broccoli Cheese soup anyone?

And onto silliness. Rylan has found his little escape. He is the only one who can crawl up on my old wood bench, so when he wants to get away from his bullying brother Brett he crawls up here.

Brett says, Hey how'd you do that?

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

I hope everyone has a wonderful & safe "Green" day today!

We're getting so big! The kiddos are becoming a little more independent and they can play together so nice. Can being the key word! We're learning how to share, not that we always want to. I'm really looking forward warmer weather so we can get outside! I'm hoping to have a garden this year too. Anything to help with the grocery bills. These kids are already eating me out of house and home! If I make a hamburger helper meal it feeds them twice, with none for mom. If I make a pizza, I get none as well! The photo below is Brett showing you how much he LOVES pizza. It's number one!

Brileigh loves playing with balls. Her favorite activity is to throw them through the baby gate into the kitchen. Of course once they hit the hard wood floor the cat takes off with them, and that's a lot of fun to watch too! You can see Brileigh's "fang" in this picture. Her other tooth is finally coming in. Thank goodness for that, she looks like a hillbilly with that big ole front tooth!

Another fun activity for everyone is looking at books. We participated in a book exchange and got a lot of great new books. They do destroy a fair share of them, but they also take time to look at them nicely too.

Lastly I got a couple of new things done this week. I've been working on a new "chocolate" bunny and here he is! I'll be adding this guy to ebay and my website soon.
And even though Spring just started, I've already got fall ideas running through my head. I couldn't resist not making this guy after I sketched him out!

Quick Post

We've had another fun week in the Hall house. Influenza this time! Where in the world do we catch this stuff?? High fevers, chills and no sleep. No fear though, we've made it through. I even managed to get a couple of things done. These Easter items are scheduled to start on ebay Sunday night.

I designed these bunnies last week, and I think they are just the cutest. I'm listing them with a basket full of hand stitched eggs.

I also designed this Easter punch needle that I mounted on a penny rug.

Keep in mind these items wont be available for viewing on ebay until Sunday night!
Check out my listings!

That's all for now, it's time to go to bed and get some sleep!
