this post is going to be a "goulash" (in my house we call random leftovers thrown in a pan goulash...) of random thoughts, links, projects and musings.

I've been feeling a little stressssed lately. There is just A LOT to do and I have a really hard time actually doing things when there is so much to do (case and point: I'm blogging). My life is so chaotic in a literal sense. I have a pathway in my room leading to my bed, my clothes are everywhere BUT the closet. I HATE folding laundry. I can do loads and loads of it but please don't make me fold it. Since I'm an adult, I fold my own, that's why it's all over the floor...the trunk of my car is FULL of old clothes that are way too big that I need to consign or donate ASAP but haven't yet. My desk (was) a huge mess of mail, projects and random junk, I did manage to somewhat organize it yesterday but it still has a ways to go to be completely organized.

I'm babysitting for 10 days with Nicole. We are tag teaming it and it's working rather well. But when one isn't used to having 3 children and all of a sudden you're in charge of their well being it can be (and is) a big responsibility. I've been babysitting for this family for over 10 years so let's just say the kids are comfortable with me and know what buttons to push ;). Also I'm NOT a morning person so this throws my day off a bit but hey! at least I'm actually falling asleep before 11! WOW that never happens! Too bad I wake up every hour during the night.

Found this website today, it's called How about Orange brilliant. seriously. i love every post (that I've read so far) it's a crafty blog so beware.

Another website that I actually found through the Orange one called 3 eyed Bear. It's 3-D paper projects, I'd never have patience for that but maybe someday.

A necklace that I've been coveting but I'm far too cheap to buy something that "useless" for myself (common, shoes and purses ARE useful). From the website Cinnamon Sticks. 
One can dream right?!

Seeing blogs like, One Charming Party, make me want to step into a blog and never come out!

This is one part of my life I got organized yesterday. It's my YW church binder. 
Maybe that will help keep my projects and responsibilities in some sort of order.

The Valentines I'm making.
It's a print out on a sheet of 8.5x11 paper that I'm gonna cut down the middle and make into a goodie bag. Filled with what? I do not know yet but it will be filled once I sew the sides closed.

I made this sign for our YW theme this year. it's the cover to my fancy dancy binder. Our theme is the 13th article of faith. I keep trying to keep it in my mind (especially this week;))

For our New Beginnings at Church I am making these necklaces for the girls. This is showing a penny pendant but we are using quarters so they're a little larger. I also have to get a slide show down which means scanning pics for the next 4 weeks (not really but there's A LOT)

I got this book from the library. Bad news bears. All I want to do it shove everything aside and just make every single project in this book. Bad idea prolly.

I think that's it. I have wasted enough time today. I gotta go start and finish some projects so I can calm down a little. It's possible I'll post pictures after I finish some of these mounding projects. We'll see though. oh no I just remembered a whole other list of things I gotta do...OY. Wish me luck!
