Crafting On

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two, post it on your blog, on Instagram #craftingon and/or Flickr and then share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.
crafting on

I have been sneaking in a row or two here and there while loving on my Baby boy (but only a few so I don't miss out on the moment with him). Since I finished C's birthday sweater early it only seemed crazy logical to cast on another one for her. I have been wanting to knit this sweater since C was tiny but never got around to it. Now she is in the largest size of the pattern so I thought I had better run with it while there is still time.

What are you working on? Happy creating!

...and I don't even know it!

best days best days best days best days best days
Baby F has been miserably down and out these past few days. He is very clingy and only mama will do - no one else. In the past when my young ones had been this way I would love on them but not be as present as I should have been, thinking too much of things I felt I should be doing - things that really can wait like dishes, laundry, and blog posts to name a few. In reality though, these are some of the best days of my life and I don't even know it! Time is such a cruel thief. In just a few short years my baby will be too big to wear in a carrier or sleep on my chest all day. I'll be reminiscing about days such as these and wanting them back. So I am going to take the time to savor these moments. I'm going to spend all day in bed cuddling with my sick baby instead of fretting over everything I should be doing. I am going to listen to his little heartbeat and tiny breaths instead of concerning myself with my growling stomach. I am making memories with my baby, and as I have learned the hard way, babies don't keep!
