Our crazy life.

Hello all you peeps out there.  First, there was not a lot of excitement about the fall scrapbook.  WHAT is up with that?!  But for those of you who ARE excited, I will be ordering 25 kits, and first come, first serve. I'll post it when I get it together!  

Next...I am so happy to announce that canvases went out to Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and Idaho today!  I also sent out necklaces to south Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama, and ummm... I dont' know.  Can't really remember them all, but you can see I am steadily working on the orders!  

third.  It is the story of my life to overextend myself.  I just do.  I don't know why!  Soooo, to all of you who are still waiting on your order, rest assured, I will get to it.  When I am nearing the end of this super long list, I will post to see who I could have possibly excluded (or LOST).  If you have any concerns that maybe you are in that group, email me (mgroves11@comcast.net) and I will let you know yay or nay on your being on my extremely disorganized list.  Can you say PAYPAL!?   THAT will definitely be in order before my next circus begins!  

And speaking of circus... 
Ellie put this little get up on all by herself!  Isn't it creative?  To say the least. 
For some reason, she is really into wearing headbands around her head, "like MaryAllison"!!

This is me.  Working my little fingers to the bone to make necklaces to ship out as soon as possible at the first of this work week.  I think about 5 or so orders have gone out, and about 15 more are VERY, VERY close to being ready!  
Here we are working across from each other at the extremely dirty table!  And please notice the SHEET hanging from the window because my husband is a vampire and cannot tolerate any light in the house.   Oh, and there is that ugly brown chair! 
My baby girl really LOVES to "make jewelry".  She would rather use my jewelry tools than play baby dolls ANY ol' day! 
While we played at the table, Dad and Gabbi played in the den floor! 
I think I need to help him work on his hamstring range of motion!  Dude!  
Well, this is our crazy life!  It is a pretty fun one, really! 

Here's to you wearing a headband to work tomorrow.  You can do it. Be brave!

Melissa said...

Ellie is so cute! I wish my little one would get that girlie side to her!!

Mindy said...

You are a rock star...and Ellie is well on her way to being one, too!!!

Lindsay said...

Ok, Todd, come on! I mean, let's get with the hamstrings range of motion program. Your wife can still "split"......we can't have you getting all old and stuff! :))

As for the jewelry making queen.......yes, you MO, not Ellie.........I hope my fun necklace from Tucson is in that pile?!! You remind me of me, if I'm not making a tutu, sewing an outfit or teaching..........it's just not me! And, there is always some sort of mess in every corner of my house!! If you can find my kitchen table you're doing good!

E is about 15 years ahead of herself! She cracks me up.........Love that kid!

I don't know how you do it. I'm exhausted just from reading your post! :-)

Kelly said...

Ok so how much are the necklaces and how do we order? Inquiring minds want to know!!

That is such a cute post! I love the photo of Ellie with you at the table with her pointing at you. She is telling you just what to do and how to do it! Love how our kids rule the roost!!! Your crazy life looks pretty darn good to me! Have a good one...

Since you aren't coming tomorrow, instead of cleaning like a maniac today, I am working on a canvas I have been fooling with for awhile. Like four months. I know. I put it up and made myself get other things finished so people would actually think I was an adult!

Love the pics as always. Have a great day.

YAY!!! I think my necklace is in that pile of stuff!! I can't wait to see it!!!!


Ellie and Bree would hit it off big time! She is truly my girly girl, however, w/a college aged daughter at home we have to keep the curlers, makeup bag up high! She loves to walk in high heels and no doubt idolize BEYONCE!! If Beyonce is anywhere on the tube, she stops dead in her tracks and say "MOMMA LOOK BONSAY"!!

Love those girls! Ellie for sure is a fashion queen!

I'd love another kit, but, I'm trying to save up so I can get you to make me a "Believe" canvas for my craft room I'm planning.

Plus, I went to two Targets up towards Memphis Saturday and, uh, sorta went wild in the scrapbook clearance. I so wish we had a Target.

I am totally excited about the scapbook kits. I love them. Do you think you could maybe post the tutorials again. I know they were super helpful and were on the old part of the blog. Those two little darlings are a mess.

Ellie looks like she should have a crystal ball in front of her reading people's fortunes! She is too cute.

Why does Todd like like light in the house? The first thing I do i open all the blinds. Can't stand things closed up!!!!
