So I felt annoyed and cranky most of the day. LeeLee slept forever, Mooms finally ran in there and said 'wake up, LeeLee!'
Papa came home tired and cranky and in need of a little pampering so I busted out some products and gave him a little home facial. I didn't want to mess up his relaxation by snapping pictures, but his skin really was glowing afterwards. He was blessed with great skin but he did need some moisture and a touch of exfoliation.
Tonight I was determined to not fall asleep with everyone else and I triumphed! I'll be tired in the morning but I don't care. I needed my alone time! I was playing around with packaging options for my magnets. Some of them I'm going to keep separate but some I am selling as a set. They won't be all super matchy-matchy, this was just a test run.
As I was nursing the boys to sleep I had this lightbulb moment: I would put self-stick flat magnets on the cards to keep the decoupaged magnets in place. Brilliant!
But in reality, the flat magnets were not strong enough to hold the others in place and they slid around exposing the flat magnet and it was a big stupid mess. Grrr...hate it when reality poops on a good idea!
I also made a bangle I've been procrastinating. I wanted to try to wrap the fabric all the way around instead of just covering the top. I also wanted a patchwork-y type effect. It was a giant hassle and I still need to varnish it, but I am happy with the way it looks so far.
Another thing I've been procrastinating was making a card for my friend that I made the baby announcement earrings for. I still need to add glitter to his name, but I'll be done tomorrow and it will be post office ready! I finally made a second earring for the red polka dot milk jug earring I finished the other day. I may scrap the mismatched pair idea and just make two more to match. Not sure yet. I am really feeling red floral-y pattern and polka dots lately.
Lastly I finished a bunch of decoupaged bottle top magnets I started the other day. They're cute and fun.
