Changing up the blog. Right now I’m not doing much sewing. I’m mostly working and spending 2.5 hours commuting to work daily on public transportation so I’m doing lots and lots of reading. I think I’ll be sharing a little more of the books I read and life type things and hopefully incorporate some sewing and kids crafts from time to time as well. But at the same time I kind of want to keep it mainly sewing and craft related. Hmm..
Up dough. Every time I make a batch of bread, I think to myself “Why don’t I do this more often? It’s so easy!” But then I don’t. I need to change that. Homemade bread is so good! (And even mixing and kneading by hand is easy and oddly relaxing).
“I’m the littlest Christmas tree! Ho ho ho! Hee hee hee!” My 6-year-old had her first Christmas concert at school and performed that song with her class. The song is stuck in my head after listening to her singing it for weeks on end! Silly Bean was fantastic btw. She is so shy at school the teacher is always saying how during oral presentations she turns bright red and talks so quietly no one can hear her and during class she sits quietly and never says a word. (Hmm sounds familiar) But here she was during the song singing along being on point with all the movements. Out of roughly 30 kids there were five others who were also dancing along the entire time, but she really was the star of her group! I was expecting her to be like some of the kids who were kind of shell-shocked being in front of the strangers
(And you know what? I still would have been proud of her in that situation too for standing up in front of all the people watching. There’s no way you’d get me to go up on stage and dance to a song in front of strangers).
