Maintaining sanity with 2 children by making stuff.

Busy as a Bee
Yes, I have been busy lately! There is of course all the time I spend with the children, whether we are going out to playgroups (friends! play! snack!) and getting out to the park now that the weather is warming up, and then I am also trying to find time to cook, bake, clean (some of which I can do with my "helper" (some of these jobs get more complicated and take longer this way), and sew! I have some things going in a new local shop so I have trying to get as much done as I can, but some days I end up getting nothing done. I accept this, and am trying to go with the flow. I decided a good plan will be to try to craft a tiny bit in the morning, since that is when the children are their happiest and most independent. Then we go to playgroup or the park, lunch, naps/quiet time (sewing? cleaning?) some time outside and supper, then bed, and maybe a bit of crafting depending on the night. That's my plan for the summer. Summer is short, so I want to take advantage of it, especially since last summer I was hugely pregnant and it was so hot, I lived in the basement. It's not my fault I gained 80 pounds, that's what happens when I'm pregnant!
And so, here are some pictures of what I have been up to:
