Special Request for a Little Girl
I have to admit, I don't think I did my daisies exactly "correctly" but I won't tell if you won't tell. ;) It just worked out better the way I did it, and I think it looks great. I finished it up and I had my Sara try it on to see how it would look. Ooooh, I thought it was super way cute, and I told her to go look in the mirror. She came back with her shirt up over her chin and said, "What? I don't have anything!" lol. That meant she wanted it. Of course I told her I would make her one too, and I did.
Here are some pics of the Daisy Chain necklace with lots of multi colored flowers. Makes me think of a spring time garden.
I had a very long, but good, day today. I only got a few hours of sleep, so I was real tired which concerned me. I was wondering how well I would make it through the day because when I get tired I don't function well at all. I'm not one who can power through. Nope. My brain says, "Overload!" and just shuts down. Kind of frustrating sometimes. Sometimes I can only last an hour. Today, though, I lasted almost 6 hours!!!!! Holy cow, that is some kind of record for me! I went to a card making class with my good friend Beth (she sells Close to My Heart scrapbooking supplies). We made 5 different cards, and they were all beautiful! The kids were supposed to stay in the bedroom and watch a movie on the DVD player, but the player wouldn't work. Pretty soon Sara made her way to the table and Beth was very tolerant and gracious and let her join us. Matthew stayed in the bedroom and played Sara's Nintendo DS and didn't complain one single time through the entire class!!! Such a good natured kid. Never causes waves.
After the class was over and the guests had left it was the kids' turn for some fun. Beth has a swimming pool and the kids got to go swimming! They had such a good time and played so well together. It makes my heart happy to see them get along so well...you can tell they'll be very close throughout their adult years.
So that was my day. How about you?
