I’m sure it’s around here somewhere.

I seem to have misplaced my motivation lately.  My house usually looks like a hurricane went through it, I’m usually dressed and out of the house by, oh, I don’t know, 1:00. Maybe. I find myself sitting in front of my computer googling “how to get fit post-pregnancy” while simultaneously eating a cinnamon roll with 2 tbsp of butter melted on top and drinking a 16oz. hottie with coconut flavoring and whipped cream on top. HA! And the worst part… I don’t care! I really want to though, so I’m working on that. My big problem is this right here.


I mean, seriously, just look at those cheeks. Can you really blame me? Those babies need to be kissed on 24/7. Oh and then there are these two.



You would never know that those handsome little faces can cause so much mischief!

But anyway, my point is, I have zero motivation right now and with my shoppe starting to take off (can I tell you there is no better advertisement then toting around an adorable baby with a big ol’ flower in her full head of hair?!!) I’m finding myself with little time to take care of the things that probably need to be attended to. At this point I would like to give a shout-out to my amazingly sweet hubby who has yet to mention the fact that sometimes you can’t see the floor in our living room, and still says I’m beautiful even though I feel anything but.

So I’ve decided that it’s time I start making a few changes and I figure that starting with myself is as good a thing as any. I’ll tell you that the Spanx just aren’t holding it all in right now. Speaking of Spanx, isn’t that just a miracle garment in itself!! I’m going to have to give them their own post later on. Here is my problem. What do I do to get myself going? Obviously the googling did nothing to help me. It’s cold outside, gyms are expensive-o, and my double jogging stroller doesn’t hold all of my babies anymore. I can put the little miss in the wrap and push the boys, but again with the cold outside. Would you like to hear any more excuses? I’ve found I’m pretty good at coming up with them.

My decision right now is that I’m going to start doing Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred.


Have you ever tried it? One word- Brutal. I fell down once trying to do high knees. I like that kind of workout because that means it’s working. Right?? Haha. Oh well. So here’s to motivation. The cover says I can lose 20 lbs in 30 days. Not likely that I will do it in 30 days, but I’m currently 7 weeks post-partum and my goal is to lose 20-25lbs by February, or March, or anytime before baby #4 makes its way into the oven. See? I’m flexible. And now I’m curious, to all you mommies out there, young or old, new or seasoned, what do you do, or do you do nothing at all? I’d love to hear about it, let me know that it’s not just me!

Here We Go

So, it's been a while.  Life has kind of taken over, and I'm okay with that.  My family is where my priorities need to be.  This craft blog was started with a lot of high hopes, but it was also started having no idea what it takes to keep a blog like this going.  Coming up with enough projects to keep content up takes a lot of time.  A whole lot of time.  And with 3 little ones now all 3 and under, I wasn't having a whole lot to spare.  So I took a hiatus for a while, not sure if I was going to come back at all.  But I miss it.  I miss the interactions with readers, having something outside of my home to be involved in.
So I'm back, but things are going to be a little different around here.  I'm still going to be doing some crafts every now and then, but I think I'm going to add a little more life into my blog.  My experiences as a mom of 3, a wife to a sexy soldier, a newfound shop owner trying to figure out the ins and outs of growing a business.  My life consists of Batman and Superman, failed attempts at pottytraining, trying to keep a clean house with rugrats running rampant, making goodies to satisfy a housefull of sweet-tooths.  I would love for you all to join me as I try this out.  I want feedback, interactions, opinions.  I hope that you stick around!
