I am feeling quite euphoric after finally making it to the Dentist this afternoon; or maybe that's just a side-effect from the prescription pain killer he gave me, lol. Either way, I am very happy to have my bothersome tooth out. He also gave me an antibiotic to clear up the infection, so hopefully I will be feeling back to normal very soon.
While I was out and about, I stopped by Michael's craft store to pick up a few items. I have decided that I need to add some diversions to my life. In spite of the fact that we hard-working moms/wives like to claim that we have no time for hobbies (okay, so maybe it's just me), I'm starting to realize that it's actually good for my family when I take a little bit of "me" time. Most of the time that translates into reading late into the night, or baking up something special occasionally.
Well, I'm tired of baking, and I need my sleep at night! Seriously, I thought it'd be fun to add something new. And maybe a bit challenging.
Remember that painting project I have going? **Really Mrs.Darling, I do have a paint project going; this is not a case of talk with no substance** Anyway, we will hopefully finish it up this weekend. Or at least another wall of it. Which is where my "diversion" comes in. I found something online that I thought would be just perfect to use as new decor for that wall (it was previously covered with assorted academic/learning posters). Well, I really didn't care for the price. Guess it's the thrifty blood that runs through my veins. So I thought to myself "why not make something myself that's unique and a whole lot cheaper?"
Okay, say maybe the fact that I'm not particularly crafty or creative could be a slight deterrent.. but I like the cheaper part:)
I can't make any promises about it being done over the weekend. But I do plan to indulge myself and spend a few relaxing hours (at odd times no doubt) getting in a good start. Here are my $20 worth of supplies.
I really hope it all comes together somehow, because it would be so embarrassing not to have something a little impressive to post pictures of when I'm all done; oh the pressure!:)
