Weekend Recap

Overall it was a really good weekend here! I hope everyone had a good weekend as well!

Friday was spent as home with just Little N. Big N and A were babysitting and had a sleepover at Aunties house after. They got spoiled and Little N got a Mommy Daddy Date where we went out to eat then played in the hot tub for a little bit.

Still able to smile after 14 miles!

Saturday was a Long Run day. 14 miles and Hubby felt great after his run, I felt like I might fall apart. My warm up was an hour with the snow blower. I accomplished 10 miles on the treadmill, an amazing feat considering 2 months ago I couldn’t bring myself to run 2 miles on one! At 10 miles I was bored and my left hip was starting to holler so I switched to the track to finish my last 4. My hip was ok while I walked, but screamed during my cool down. I finished the day with stretches and kept my legs moving with grocery shopping.

Sunday I took the kiddos for haircuts and pants shopping. The rest of the day was spent crafting. Part of my March focus is to focus on just doing one thing at a time, so I spent some lovely time with my sewing machines and made up some adorable T-Rex and football taggies to bring with to my next craft show. It was nasty cold outside, so inside time was amazing! Next step is to keep finishing projects I have started and start listing them on Etsy!

What did you do this weekend? What fun projects are you working on? What not so fun projects?

Stash Blasting

I struggle with buying more and more supplies for projects on my to do list… sometimes far, far, far down my to do list. Last year I made an effort to do more with what I already had on hand. I think I maybe made progress, but switched up my storage solutions so it isn’t as easy to compare.

In order to keep myself accountable, I decided to share, regularly with you, my progress in projects using my stash!

276g of Sea Creatures for Island Play Sets using “scrap” yarn from other projects

So far, this year, I have been working on animals for my Island Play Mats I made last year. They were a big hit as a set, as well as just selling individual animals.

Current stash… “regular-ish” size yarn. (I have a picnic basket of Bukjy and super bulky 😳)

What supplies do you have a plethora of? How do you plan on using them?
