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.

Sorry to be a bit boring and repetitive here, but I am still working on C's belated birthday sweater. I am nearly finished with the body portion so maybe it won't be too much longer until it's finished.

What are you working on? Happy creating!

Blurry, but caught a happy face! not so sure, mama Lavender the shark car lavender It's about 12:30am my time and Baby F just now finally fell asleep. Our days have gotten a lot better and are full of more smiles but the past two nights have been full of tears (both his and mine). So, I apologize but this post is short and sweet, more photographs than words, as most of my posts have been as of late.

Little L took part in his first ever pine box derby over the weekend. It was with his Trail Life USA troop. He joined Trail Life just before his fifth birthday this year, something he had been begging to do since his sisters joined American Heritage Girls (Trail Life is basically the boy equivalent to AHG, like Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts). He and Kevin worked hard together to design and create "Lavender the Shark car" for the event - would you have expected anything different than a hammerhead shark?! Something tells me he won't ever forget his special car or that day.
