Sure it may look like I only had three things going on but I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm not a fan of being busy. I very much enjoy having one major task at a time that I can plan and execute at a reasonable pace. This is a luxury I have been granted since graduate school and I'm not about to take it for granted. My ability to multi-task diminishes significantly in the winter. Because my brain slows down? Also I'm prone to Seasonal Affective Disorder. Shocking, I know. All of the previously mentioned events happened pretty much simultaneously. Well, at least within three days of each other. Which is why my mind was a mess trying to organize my thoughts and pull everything together. Fortunately everything went swimmingly.
I made giant crepe paper roses! And tissue paper pom-poms!
I had lots of help with the pom-poms, thank goodness.
I was much better at the roses after I had made about six of them.
And I thought the end result was quite lovely. What do you think?
Now that I have all of that behind me I can focus on the major MAJOR event of the month: Z-cakes's birthday. My time for planning grows lean, my friends. Her birthday is less than two weeks away! Now I'm wondering if I should do a family party or a friend party. Or both? Cupcakes or layer cake? New birthday crown? (yes) But as I have said, I am running out of time! Decisions must be made! Any and all input is welcome!
Anyway, while I'm here, I might as well make a list of the things I've been doing instead of blogging lately. Who knows when I'll be back after all.
:: Watching Downton Abbey while working on my embroidery calendar.
:: Playing Words With Friends
:: Thinking about blogging
:: Going to bed at 10:00
:: Helping Z-cakes change in and out of her ballet clothes 12 times a day
:: Making dinner every night, yo! Except on leftover night
:: That's pretty much all I can think of right now.
:: XO to you all
:: Happy 6 more weeks of winter
