I'm trying not to freak out over this move, but...I'm kind of freaking out! So, instead of gettting organized and putting things in order, I decided to get my August Counterfeit Kit together. (I work better under pressure, so if I leave things to the last minute, then my stress level increases and... well, I'll keep telling myself that, hahaha!) Here's this month's inspiration kit:
And finally, the part I'm most proud of, some hand made felt embellishments:
What do you think? Now that I'm seeing them from above, my rainbows look a bit crooked, but overall I think they're pretty cute! I have the pinwheel instructions pinned here, and the rainbows - well, I know I've seen them somewhere, but I searched and searched and could not find the exact ones I used for my inspiration! Anyway, I would love to give credit where credit is due, so if these are your rainbows, please let me know and I will amend this post.
Sigh, I think all the kidlets are finally going to sleep - Brenna's been an absolute beast these past few nights, staying up until 10 or 10:30 p.m. I don't know if it's the heat or if she's getting some molars or what! Maybe she's just pushing the boundaries like a typical 2 and a half year old.
This should make you laugh! As promised, I went to the walk-in clinic to get my thumb looked at. I had all three kids with me. Now Nolan tends to be a real hypochondriac, and he kept asking if I was going to die or if I would need surgery, etc, and he was pretty much in tears whenever the subject of my thumb came up. Well, the doctor I saw is from Madagascar and has a very thick accent. He didn't know what was wrong with my thumb, but he said it could be a ganglion. Nolan gasped and almost started crying right there, he thought the doctor said "gangrene"! I couldn't help it, I just had to laugh!!! I know the situation is not really laughable (I've talked to 3 doctors now and none of them know what it is just by looking, and this third one wanted to refer me to a hand surgeon) but to see Nolan nearly pass out because he thought my thumb was going to be amputated, well, that just made me realize how much he really cares! Seeing that we're moving so soon, the doctor suggested that I go in to the clinic RIGHT AWAY as soon as I get to Vanderhoof and they can refer me on from there. What a hassle! I'm pretty tempted to just take matters into my own hands - a bottle of wine and a sterilized needle and I'll drain the damn thing myself! That would probably be pretty stupid, though...
Well, the movers get here Tuesday to start packing things up, so I'm not sure what I'll be able to do with this kit before the end of August. Here's hoping I can get in at least one page, from our new (rental) pad, before the kids start school and everything gets all fall-ish. Wish me luck, and I'll try to keep posting comments even if I don't get any crafting done! Hugs from Roxy!!!
