OH MY GOD YOU GUYS!! Chris Gorham just talked to me on twitter again! He tweeted this:
Then I tweeted this:
And then he said THIS:
okay...where was I? Oh yes, I'm an emotional eater and I've been changing my ways. I can no longer take my feelings out on a bag of cookies when things are stressing me out. I've had to find other outlets for my stress. I made a short list of things to replace cookie eating with and this is what I came up with.
Exercise and Sex had to be removed from this list because I don't like to get sweaty and
I can only call the dishwasher repair man so many times my husband isn't always home when I'm stressed out. This leaves Crafts, Reading and Cleaning. I'm currently reading three books at the same time....got that one covered. And every time I think Calvin's going to lose this job I start throwing stuff out, organizing and cleaning. This brings me to the craft projects I've been working on. They were both Valentine's Day related so I was under some pressure to finish them.
I made this felt pillow by cutting out circles, folding them in half and quarters, sewing them shut...then sewing them onto a piece of felt that I turned into an envelope pillow cover. It looks so cute on the chair in our family room....but I can't get the kids to leave it alone.
I saw this felt heart garland featured on Tatertot's and Jello and I knew I had to make one! I didn't add as many embellishments as Frills, Fluff and Trucks did....but I think it turned out pretty cute. This seemed to take me longer than it should have because the kids kept stealing my hearts. And that glass vase on the mantel...it had MandM's in it at one time. Note to self: Don't decorate with candy.
I've had a few people ask me if I was going to be putting my Chore Charts in my Etsy Store. I wasn't planning on it but I've decided that if anyone is interested in one I'd be more than happy to make them on a special order basis. If you are interested in buying one...they are $24.
Happy Valentine's Day!
