Turns out that there is a limit to multi-tasking.
Crafting and nursing at the same time is NOT recommended.
Glitter and newborns? Not such a great combo.
Spray adhesives and swaddling? Not so smart.
SO - here's what I've been up to BETWEEN feedings...
Remember these cute little paper houses that I got at Hobby Lobby? They are on a shelf in my bathroom.
I finally got around to painting and glittering them. It took me a full week to finish them - since my crafting sessions last all of of 10 minutes now, but here is the finished product:
Let me just say that I'm officially in love with Diamond Dust and Snowtex. They were sooo fun to use and made my little paper mache houses look so fancy!
AND - I managed to get some Christmas shopping done last week. I found the most adorable snowman for my friend and just had to buy one for myself.
Merry Christmas to me!
Isn't he lovely?
He makes me think of the sweet little boxes and preciousness that Cherry from Cherry's Jubilee makes.
Have you seen her blog? She is crazy-talented and currently my Crafty Crush.
I want to go over to her house and (after a cup or two of reaaallly strong coffee - so I'm actually alert) have her teach me how she does all her lovely, lovely crafts.
I've made a few Christmas gifts, but I'm going to have to wait to post pictures of those - I can't spoil the surprise! :-)
