Since Monday of last week I have kept the deep cleaned bedroom clean, sorted through in-between-pregnancy and maternity clothes, cleaned and rearrange the living room, done lots of dishes, turned 6 of the 21 bananas in my freezer into muffins and bread, been more creative with dinners, AND read a book and a half!
Another project I worked on was our 2015 photo book. I pinned this idea on Pinterest before we were married where at the end of every year you take especially memorable pictures and print them in a photo books. So much easier than scrapbooking or photo albums, right? Wrong. Well, maybe if you use a site other than shutterfly? One thing: I h a t e shutterfly. For no particular fault of theirs besides their site being slow, hard to maneuver, and oh so tedious. I mean, I just want this frame black and this one purple, and I want to choose a square of color and cut it down to the size I want. So really I want to be scrapbooking and not using a computer program but scrapbooking is so expensive.. And so it turns out is shutterfly when you decide "Yes, I'd like to have a hard cover on my photo book" that is what makes it a book after all, isn't it? Then to see they charge $16 extra dollars for a cover, I mean, really? It's a photo book, the advertised price should be including a cover. Oh well, our family photo books will just have to be coverless.
In other news on the project front: I have worked a lot on my braided tshirt rug and was sewing it together when my sewing machine began giving me troubles. I have maybe a quarter of it wound up and sewed and in that time I've broken 4 needles, I believe. At this rate that is just going to be too many so I have set the project aside until I decide to keep replacing needles and just keep trying, or force myself to sew it by hand. Its a big rug, guys, this decision takes some pondering.
Thanks for popping by to see if I rejoined the blogger mommies ;)
