Recovered…

Well I never got to any crafts this week but I did get Mike’s office chair covered. It was such a disaster from the kids spilling on it so now it’s fresh and clean and a darker color. Not bad for a chair that’s 15 years old.

I took out my fabric, thread, sewing machine, scissors and pins. I am going to make something like this…

The kids and I are going to make these…

Here is another super easy craft we’ll make too, it’s from here, Martha Stewart crafts.

Crayon Hearts

I love Valentine’s. I love hearts. I made a mobile a couple years ago so we’ll get that hung up and I’m sure we’ll come up with a few more goodies.

Tomorrow I’m taking the kids swimming at the gym. It’s just something we don’t do very often and Mike is off too so we can go and play, I can swim a few laps and we’ll all be ready for a good rest time after lunch.

Take care my friends and have a blessed night sleep and a wonderful weekend.

The chair looks far from 15 years old! Very cool job! :)

The hearts made me realize I'm single. It's a good thing, too. Haha, but it's you, so I don't mind telling you what I'm thinking. :)

I make sure I wish my sister for Valentine's each year, so this is my reminder. :):) Have a happy swim!
