Taking a Break

There are many things happening right now. I haven't been feeling well. I am a little bit stressed and overwhelmed at the moment. My heart just hasn't been here so I have decided to take a little break.

I will be back. I just don't know when, so don't count me as gone. I am hopeful to get my act together while on my hiatus. Nothing serious going on and no one needs to worry. Just a bunch of little things and we all know how the little things can add up and then feel like a big thing. I will still be reading blogs I just don't feel like my mind is clear enough to make good post.
Take care and I hope you are stopping to enjoy the simple moments! Really those are the moments that matter most.

My Kind of Day

I had my nieces over on Saturday so my sister could do some shopping. When I found out they would be coming I knew exactly what we would do... craft!

We started out making snow globes.


Super easy. We hot glued mini ornaments (with the hanger cut off) into the lid of a baby food jar. Filled the jar with cold water and added 1 tsp of glitter. The lid was put on and then hot glue was added where the lid meets the jar.


Next wooden ornament were painted.



Then snowmen were made.


You can find directions here. This was my favorite activity of the day.

Last but not least were paper chains. They are a countdown to Christmas.


A super fun day and I can't wait to have another crafty kind of day.

I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
