Don't worry, I'll slowly ease into it again. We have company coming starting Thursday night thru next weekend. It'll be fun but first my house sure needs a good cleaning.
I'm also getting the itch to create something. I don't have a lot of time during the day anymore so maybe I'll start with some light switch covers. First I have to organize my craft corner so I'll actually have space to work....Details, details...

This is the shirt she is wearing today since our night last night wasn't that great. My fault really. She loves to sleep in our bed and I'm ready for her to be in her own crib. Eventually she got her way and came back into our bed. At least we were able to get a few hours of shut eye.
Instead of spending my afternoons "playing" in my very humble workspace, I am now spending them horizontal between the sheets, happily snoozing with my baby. Hopefully in a few weeks, we'll be back on our feet trying to find time to "play".

I love the look of the nest, the pearl eggs along with the leaf! Stunning!

I did get some coasters listed, but shockingly enough, I cringe at the pictures when I see the listing. This morning after all the kids are up and at em (three up, one to go) I'm heading to Walmart (it's the only place within 30 minutes of us. I dread going there but what do you do?!?!) to get some lights for my light tent. Don't ask me why I've been putting up with it for so long. Guess it's just one of my "charms". After Walmart and grocery shopping, it's back home to do a mad scramble housecleaning. My husband is taking a half day (it was his suggestion, one that I agreed to right away), we're getting a babysitter and going Christmas Shopping. I'm excited! We haven't gone on a date since we moved here.
Maybe if I clean fast enough (have to at least make the place presentable), I'll have time to sneak in my workroom and start on a project. If not, I won't be too disappointed. Hubby has started playing hockey with the guys on Friday nights. They play later in the evening (usually 9 pm), so after I get the kids to bed and shoo him out the door, the rest of the time is all mine! This might be my last Friday night "all alone" so I'm going to make the most out of it!

Here is one attempt I made. Better, but not quite there yet. I only had one light coming in from the right (as you can see the glare) and I think I'll need a second one. It was about 7pm when I took this picture so I'll try again in the morning and see if I get different results. I think I'll pick up another light tomorrow as I'm running errands (can you believe we don't have a single lamp in this house?!)
