it rained last week

so... last week it rained for a few days...we weren't able to go to the pool.
we were at a lost as to what to do... okay the kids weren't they loved the puddles...but what did i used to do?

oh yeah.
i think i sort of remember the sewing machine and paint and some other stuff i used to have fun with...
i blew the dust off the 'ol craft area in my brain and started to unleash some hounds that have been needing to...well be unleashed i guess. the kids kind of got excited and hovered as i tried my hand at something crafty. i think both parties kind of have missed that little bit of me.
i made something for my house...
exciting!!!!
and i'm editing pictures on how to make it so you will have a tutorial sometime next week.
oh hey and by the way i have a HUGE giveaway on monday. yeah, it's the biggest ever here on the 'ol blog.
uh yeah you won't want to miss it i promise!!!

btw keep the organizing coming! you can link up your progress till the 5th! thanks to the gals who have already shown their progress! it's keeping me motivated for sure! i'm working on my closet and my storage area in the garage... ;) i'll try to add a few more pics (camera was acting up...okay no it wasn't i'm just super lame when it comes to figuring out computer stuff. so i was acting up...new computer means me not knowing what i'm doing for a little while till i get used to the new system...i'm an old dog with no new tricks to be learned when it comes to computers i guess!)
anywho...come back monday and next week for a HUGE giveaway and a tutorial.
have a great weekend!

sorry you didn't get to swim. it is kind of yucky when you can't do your "go to" summer activities. can't wait to see what you've done!

Oh, how I wish it would rain here! They keep saying a 40% chance of rain but all we're getting is the humidity with no rain. I love the rain. I keep telling my husband that we could move to Oregon or someplace rainy like that and I'd be perfectly happy! He thinks I'm weird, lol!

Oh WOW, I hope I am not so BUSY Monday that I miss my visit here! I love a BIG Giveaway!
It has rained here a few times but it only increases the humidity and the temp skyrockets the next day. ARRRGH

Summer = bare feet!! Great reminder of those days.

Heather said...

send your rain to the desert...we never have enough!

Marie said...

How does Dessert sounds?

Yay puddles! It seems we just can't get rid of the rain here. It rains like three times a week in the summertime, and just takes all the fun out of the warm weather.

I can't wait to see the tutorial coming up this next week! I agreed to re-upholster our old set of dining table chairs, but I don't think my mom knows just what I have in mind, mwahahaha! Old ruddy brown, meet pink, lime, and baby blue stripes!

That sweet young girl of yours is way too cute. I want to jump in the rain puddles with her.

It has been a hot summer in Grass Valley where we have a second home but so so cold in San Francisco. The birch trees outside our apartment windows in SF have yellow/rust colored leaves already!

Have a fun weekend. Dogwood

We've actually hit a patch of summer where it hasn't rained every day or even every other day so we hear you on the "tired of rain" front. I'll send you the instructions for the Anti-Rain Dance. It involves cheesecake and a live chicken. :-)

Hi V! I´ve been reding you blog for some time, being the bad-english-spoken that I'am it´s a little hard for me to write something understantable even when I understand perfectly fine when I read....But, today is the day I take some courage and write just to say thank you for inspire me and so many people arond here, yesterday I just buy my very firsth sewing machine! and dont have any idea how to use it...
But.. I will learn... Anyways! take care. A hug from México.

we were camping in the rain all weekend. Thankfully the tent held and no leaks, but still made things more messy than usual. And since I was camping, no crafting at all--just a lot of ordering kids to take off their shoes before getting in the tent. Fun fun.

Can't wait to see what you made.
