Once again, I have resolved to start blogging again. You know, once every 6 months or so, ha ha. And once again, I had an idea of what to write about this morning and now that I’m sitting here with the laptop open, I don’t have a clue what that idea was. I think I get flakier every day.
I’m sitting here watching my over-tired child (who is supposed to be napping) in the video monitor as he allegedly attempts to nap, but really is playing with his pacis and his glow-worm (which is really a seahorse, but I call it a glow-worm). GO TO SLEEP, Baby Bear! And I am exhausted. EXHAUSTED. I slept a good 8 hours last night (woohoo!) and yet I’m still just totally and completely pooped. As much as I would love for my Bear to have a sibling, I fear I may be too tired for that. I should have had kids when I was younger.
Enough whining, though. Is anyone out there reading? If so, I am sorry for this incredibly lame post. Let’s talk about fun things, okay? Like: PINTEREST!! It’s my new obsession! I lurve it!! Except! I get all these awesome ideas for projects to do and things to make, and I go out and buy all the stuff to do them, and then that stuff clutters my house and I don’t actually get anything done.
For instance: The Enormous Heart Wreath! Here’s what it’s supposed to look like:
(You can find instructions for making this here.)
Looks awesome, yes? I started this little project a few weeks before Valentine’s Day, except I couldn’t find a heart-shaped foam wreath anywhere. There was a national shortage, it seemed: no Michael’s or Jo-Ann had them, even online. I finally found this place and ordered a few, thinking (loftily) that I would make them for a couple of friends, too. When the wreaths arrived, though, they were all broken. Every last one of them. I finally ended up on this site (I think…it looks like the one I used, at least), and by that time, I decided if I was going to be paying for shipping, I may as well go big. Very big. I bought a 3-foot heart in addition to two smaller ones. When the small ones arrived, they looked more like teardrops than hearts, so I decided to go whole hog and commit to the giant one.
Except here we are, well into March, and I’m only half-committed to this thing. Or, really, 1/3-committed.
Sorry it is sideways. I’m too lazy to go back and rotate it. Anyway, I think when I finally finish this thing it is going to have to be a permanent fixture in our house, even though it’s really kind of a giant cat-hair catcher. I shall call it the Enormous Wreath/Gargantuan Cat-Hair Catcher. That’s a nice, catchy name, no?
SO anyway, PINTEREST! Isn’t it amazing? I can waste hours on that site. What has inspired you lately, or what ridiculous crafts have you only partially completed?
