enough of that, it's craft time! we're hosting thanksgiving again this year and i wanted to add some cheap decorations that i could leave up for christmas too. so i decided to make some festive flags!
step 4: hole punch the two top corners of each flag.
step 6: measure the width of where you want to hang your flags and add 5" inches to allow for a little droop. i added only 2" for the strings over the doorways for those unfortunate tall people that walk into my house.
step 7: string your flags and enjoy. :)

"no jumping on the couch. if you don't stop you'll have to play by yourself on the floor. 1.... 2.... 3.... okay, sorry. no more couch!" (whining)
"joey! no barking! you bark again during audrey's nap and your voicebox is mine!" (sulking)
"audrey, get your hand out of your pants. no nakeds today. i said no babe (grabs hands) we don't do that." (whining)
"no, i already settled on making this for supper. i don't have time to make that." (sulking)
"we don't play with mama's stove, it's not a toy. no climbing. if you don't stop you'll have to leave the kitchen." (whining)

so instead, i decided to paint some mini birdhouses. i was in joann's, pacing foggly, and saw these wooden birdhouses for $1.00. boom! bam! i slapped my husband's hard earned money on the table and drove home with a plan. i bought some sheets from target a few months ago and wanted to carry that feeling elsewhere in the room.

i was walking around joann's today with a foggy idea of a project to make. i kept walking through the same aisles again and again. touching fabrics. matching up colors and patterns in my mind. i still can't decide if i want to make throw pillows for the living room, a huge floor pillow for audrey (to someday sit and read on, but meantime jump on) or a comforter for her big-girl bed. i stumbled and was humbled by this crazy talent on etsy today. i love the texture she gives to these pillows. i don't have the talent or time to make anything like this, but the little poppy pillow looks feasible.

i am rethinking my blog and where i want to take it. when i was pregnant i told myself i would never just only talk about my baby and motherhood. being audrey's mom is an enjoyable part of my life but so is being michael's wife, so is being a crocheter of baby blankets, a lover of sushi, an admirer of super cute shoes and other such silliness. i'm still jenny with jenny's likes and dislikes. as audrey begins to detach her identity from mine and find her own individuality, so again must i. hopefully my blog will show that.
