Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on}

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

I pulled the socks I am knitting for myself out of a short hibernation and am just beginning to turn the heel. Adult socks take a lot longer than baby or toddler ones. I hope I can keep up my enthusiasm for them so I don't end up with just one sock!

What are you working on? Happy creating!

Out of Order

sleepy chubs and me (exhausted and in my old falling apart but very comfy sweater) kitchen window Do you see the robin perched on her nest? Do you see Mama Robin perched on her nest? cooking with baby f smiles

God, husband, children. I know how my priorities should go but it seems I have them all out of order or one barely existing at all. With all of my energy and focus on gently raising my children to make a difference in this world I seemed to have forgotten my poor husband. It became very obvious over the weekend. How easy it is to get lost some days. He is the reason I am fortunate enough to be a mama in the first place. We are a team, he and I, but I admit I have not being giving him all he deserves. I need to work on setting things right and continue striving to be the mama God called me to be, but also be the wife my husband needs. Balance can be such a tricky thing!
