On March 19th, Bella made some brownies mostly by herself! She loves to cook and bake, so we included it in our homeschool day. Daddy very much approves of this, lol!!!
Can you tell she's happy???
While Thomas was home on leave, Bella opened up her "salon". Here she is all duded up, because you have to be "glam" if you are running a salon, of course!!!
Doing Daddy's hair (what hair???) just so!
Well, now it's time for the Spring Craft Fair photos. Although I love to craft and be around others who craft, I think I'm pretty much done with fairs. It's A LOT of work and stress, and I made less money at this one than the one I did two years ago!!! (It looks empty around me as we got there early to set up. Some sellers weren't even there when the fair started!!!)
I had two tables, and even though it looks like the one in the foreground is mostly empty, it's really not - only the weird angle I took the shot in.
Didn't sell ONE of these!
Or any of these!
Or any of these!!!
I think I sold one pencil. Maybe two.
Bella has reading everyday (1 -2 chapters or so), and she really likes being able to use the Kindle app on her tablet to read books. I got a quick snapshot of her reading on her bed! She is on her 15th (!!!) large chapter book since starting homeschool two months ago! Most of those she read without being told to because she was so "into" the story. So I've managed to turn reading into something fun, along with math!! *happy face*
My latest obsession, lol, is with Elizabeth Craft Designs!! I'm pretty sure I first started hearing about these items on YouTube, when Karen Burnistan stopped doing things for Sizzix (and Stampin Up), and moved into a partnership with ECD instead. Then I started seeing finished cards on Facebook. Oh.My.Goodness!!! I had to get some stuff!!!
Copic colored glitter flowers!
I knew we had a craft shop on post since we moved here, but I never actually made it into there until last week. They have a lot of room to carry many things, but mostly it's empty space!!! They have a little of this and that, but not much of any one thing. The paper crafting section is ridiculously small!!!!!! But! I did find something that I had never heard of before - glitter embossing powder!!! So cool! I picked black, because it looked the prettiest, and when we got home, I tried it out!
We took half a week off from homeschooling before the craft fair so I could
OK, I think we are all caught up now. Hopefully all this pollen will GO AWAY soon, and I can stop blowing my nose and rubbing my eyes raw! I have lots of things I want to do around the house and crafting projects I want to dive into as well. Never enough time for everything, right??
