Since I've been away for a bit, I thought maybe I would update you guys a little on what we've been up to the last month or so.
First of all, I'm excited to say that I was in two more magazines! Yay! The first is a lovely Australian magazine called "Bella"; it's geared toward adolescent girls and is very positive and uplifting. Not to mention just beautiful to look at! I absolutely loved it, I wish we had more publications like it here in the States. I created a hanging word decoration(got to think of a better name for that!) tutorial for them. Thanks, Bella magazine!
I was also in another issue of Altered Couture. I love them for having me back so many times, what an honor. I just love the magazine, and the editor, she's amazingly kind. They featured this tee refashion I did last year.
In real life events, we've had a great autumn season! Paige and I went to a huge pumpkin patch with some friends where she picked a baby pumpkin, pet some furry friends, and climbed the biggest mountain of hay bails I've ever seen. Which, incidentally, gave Mommy a few small heart attacks, but Paige had fun.
We got to visit family a little, and Paige enjoyed leaf-jumping and orchard picking with her cute little cousin, Jack.
We also went to a costume party with friends at Church! Paige went as a Park Ranger...
Apparently, I went as "Frumpy Sweater Woman".
We did a little wedding coordinating. Fun! The wedding was planned in a week and a half. I was the coordinator, photographer, invitation-maker, decorations sponsor and anything else you can think of. Our budget was...nothing, so, I'm embarrassed to say, the entire wedding came out of my craft room. How is it possible that I've hoarded enough treasures to create an entire wedding out of? Yikes.
Paige was the flower (leaf) girl. She loved it. She took it very seriously, placing each leaf gently on the floor, all in a row. :o)
There has been Christmas cookie decorating:
And Christmas tree decorating!
And even a little of this:
And of course, homeschooling, housekeeping, gift-making, Church family things, and I don't really remember what else. Sometimes I feel like my life is a little too busy, and sometimes I feel like a lazy bum who doesn't use her time as wisely as she should. Maybe when I'm in my thirties I'll be magically organized. ...40's?
P.S. By the way, I really do have a husband. I know he's never in the pictures, but he's there in real life. He's just not a big "post photos of me on your blog" type of guy. :O)
Have a wonderful day, now!
