A little something girly...

I have two little boys here at home with me.  Two little boys under two in fact.  After playing trucks, making monster noises & cleaning up lots (& lots & lots) of messes, when I do get a few spare mintues to do some crafting, it's usually something girly.  Unfortunately I don't always have someone girly to try out my creations upon.  Hence what took place in our house today...

Yes... that's my handsome little guy modeling some headbands I whipped up today.  Hey, I needed a teensy tiny little head & his fit the bill. He looks a little 'less-than-thrilled' with the whole ordeal.  (Probably not nearly as 'less-than-thrilled' as my husband will be when I show him these pictures though.)

Oh, & just to quelch any fears, the headband in the top photo has already been disassembled & is awaiting it's purpose elsewhere... somewhere a little less crazy & a lot less Carmen Miranda-ish. 

Considering it's been an entire week since I've sat down to blog (two little boys under two apparently has that effect on your blogging life), I'm excited to say that I actually purchased the pattern for those cute little dolls I am planning on crafting.  I purchased it, downloaded it & even looked at it on my computer screen.  That's as far as it's gotten.  No worries though-- it's on my to-do list.

But this year is going to be different...right?

Last year on January 1st, I made a resolution to take a picture  Guess how many days I *actually* took the pictures & documented them.  Um, not once.  Not even on New Year's Day-- the same day I made the resolution.  Good grief. 

But this year... This year things are going to be different.  I'm making realistic goals.  Drink more water (check).  Read more books (check). Save more money (check--I must say, winter at home with two-little-ones-under-two is rather good for the wallet). Stay off of Pinterest & actually get some things done (hey now, I said realistic).

That being said, I'm also restarting a blog.  I'm not making any outlandish statements like telling myself I'm going to post everyday...(Gosh, there are days when I'm lucky if I get to brush my teeth) but every once in a while is a good thing.  And who doesn't like good things? 

Oh, I'd also like to start crafting more.  Starting with these little lovelies.  I love them.  I want to make one for every child I know.  (Okay, okay.. again, I have to remember--realistic.)
