This One's For Darlene!

I started this project just before I left on my grand Hobby Lobby Adventure to Statesboro GA. I finally finished it Monday morning! This is NOT a difficult project but things are a little crazy in my home lately... I don't remember being this busy when my child was little. Here I am today with two over the age of 18 (The Boy and his fiancee The Girl), two kitties inside, two puppies outside, a divine Mister and a never ending TO-Do list... Of course the twice daily round trips south (each 45 minutes one way = 3 hours daily commute) doesn't help much when it comes to creating more hours in my day to create and play.
If anyone has the answer for all of us struggling crafting diva's please share! Cause I ain't figured it out yet... *smiles* Have a wonderfully blessed and creative day!

I think crazy is a good description, and I know that many of us feel our lives are the same! Your garland turned out beautiful--enjoy it!

WOOHOO girlfriend...I feel like a celebrity with your title today!!!! I absolutely LOVE your ragamuffin garland!! GREAT, GREAT job on it!

I can play, blog and craft so much because I only work (outside the home) 3 hours a day and my commute to it is about 15 minutes. So I have a lot of time at home while Lexi is in school or at one of her many "practices" for something or other to piddle, keep house, craft, read or whatever I want to do.....Yep, right now life is good...no GREAT!!!

Well, even though you don't have a lot of time, it sure turned out great! I've heard there's a Hobby Lobby in Charlotte, but I haven't been there yet...FIELD TRIP!!! Are you going to the Christmas show at the Merchandise Mart?

Great garland! Love the touch of the F-A-L-L letters! No matter how long it took, it was worth it! As for me, I just squeeze it in when I can! Life is crazy! LOL! ~Rhonda :)

The garland looks great.
Sorry I don't have the time management problem solved either.
Let me know what you find out.

I know how hard it is. I was a stay at home mom and babysat kids. Now my kids are 20 & 15,and I work. I have NO crafty time, it makes me so mad, I wonder how I used to do it , shouldn't get easier? (found you through Susie, she LOVES your blog)

Your garland reminds me of, fall leaves falling. The beautiful colors of Fall....
I'm in Seattle, in my hotel room trying to catch up on my fav blogs. I had no idea you got a new kitten.
Those pictures were adorable. It made me a little misty cause I know that void of loss, but this precious kitten will bring you so much joy. You'll be reminded of great memories shared with Sylvester. Did I miss kitty's name?

Sweet Wishes,
Sara

P.S. I did post before I left. I know I'll be bring back a lot of pics.

Oh, that's beautiful! You're very talented, that's for sure.

The pumpkin carving in the previous post looked like so much fun. Love the picture of your cat "supervising" the whole thing. :)

Many sweet blessings!
