Last weekend the girls and I had a picnic at the park.  Now according to Elsie of A Beautiful Mess, picnics should be the new fro-yo date.  Not sure what a 'fro-yo date' is but go check out her list of 10 Things I Love Sunday - Spring Trend Edition.  Cool beans.

 I was looking up at the sky and dreaming about all the things I want to do and how there is just not enough time for it all.  I'd love to give everyone I know handmade gifts for showers, birthdays and Christmas.  I want to make dozens of things to donate to my kids' auction in the Spring.  I want to finish this sweater I've been working on so I can wear it before the temps hit 80.  *sigh*

Quick side note: Sorry for anyone out there who is freezing this January. Yes, it was a beautiful day at the park.

Also in the back of my mind was what to make for dinner, helping my 3rd grader finish her class project...  I could go on but you know that list.  That nagging list of if I did these things we would all be much better people.

But then I look at these faces and remind myself to stop and enjoy the moment.  That other stuff may or may not get done.  The crafty ambition and chores can wait.  Today I must enjoy these goofballs.

Well the afternoon trip to the park was just what we needed both physically and mentally.  I opted to head to the craft room instead of the kitchen when we got home and I got on a No-Sew Iron-On kick (in case you couldn't tell by my recent blog posts).  I made so many that yesterday I decided to re-open my Etsy shop and list them for sale.  I've been wanting to make my way back to Etsy and I gotta say this is not exactly what I had in mind, but for now it's a start.  There is a lot of work to be done, like better pictures for starters, but just knowing that it is up and running feels like I've accomplished something.
