First Day of School

Myriah is in 10th grade! Can you believe it? I can't. I am so proud of who she is growing up to be. My baby, Emily, is starting her first day of 4th grade. Look how beautiful my little chickie is! ugggh - They are growing up so fast.
I wanted to accomplish a few new routines starting today as well. I tend to wear myself out thinking of all the stuff I want to do and how I want to live. As a matter of fact, I think about it so much that I tend to let myself down but not accomplishing my goals. Though this blog I am sure I have already approached this discussion. So let's try this again.
1. I need to do some sort of exercise everyday. Everyday. I need the energy, the strength and 15 pounds to go away. I have clothes that have been waiting patiently to rejoin my current wardrobe.
2. More art, less internet. Plain and simple. I love looking at everyones blogs, reading their inspirational stories, and enjoying their tutorials. The problem is that there are just so many fabulous blogs that I spend too much time looking and not enough time doing.
3. Yep, I am a terrible housekeeper. Do I want to improve on this? hahaha I guess so!
Enough for now. The first day of the new routine is half a pass and half a fail. I did get on the treadmill, make school lunches, but I have been on the computer too long! (I am making a post - so that should count for something!)

Emily's art box turned out cute. Thank goodness she still lets me make stuff for her. Myriah is even letting me work on some of her folders! Woo!

I love this cupcake! I made it for a friends birthday and I think I will be making many more! What do you think?

Summer Time Pretties

Here are some of the necklaces I have been working on this summer. There are several more to show- and I will. I am re-doing Em's room so pictures will be coming soon for that too! Jewelry, upcycling clothing, paper mache, and lots of rosettes seem to be the lot of what I have been working on.
