So what do you do....

(Blog post written while waiting Friday

So what do you do when you are waiting and waiting...and excited and waiting some more????
Well I can tell you what I do...I create. It helps pass the time.

We've been sitting here at the house today just waiting for 5:30 to get here so that Kayla can call the hospital to see if they have a room for her. Lord knows I didn't sleep last night because all I could think about was a few quilts I was trying to design up (insert....confusion since I suck at math and can't figure out sizes for nothing) and about waking up and knowing that today my life will change once again....a grandmother.

I piddled with this and that.....did a few chores around the house. Loaded up and went out to eat for lunch and then headed to the quilt store where I finally found the border for a quilt I was stuck on and then bought the fabric for the center squares on the quilt I am making baby Danie. I hope to get some time this next week to at least finish the purple and gold one and maybe start on the Quilt-A-long one. Although another thing I kept thinking about last night was the quilted purse my mom wants for Christmas. I might need to work on that. And then again it is only February have plenty of time...right?

So as the day progressed...and after watching a sneak peak video for the She Art Workshop...I had the urge to paint. So I pulled out 1 of the last 3 canvases that I have and started working on this. Not excactly what I had in mind but I think it turned out pretty neat. Different.
I just know I am going to love learning more in this class...I can't starts on the 28th and even more fun is a new online friend that I have made, Julie of Sew Jewely, is going to be taking it too. Its more fun I think when you have someone to bounce ideas off of, etc.

And then Thursday night I sat watching American Idol and Grey's Anatomy and made Beaded Bookmarks. I made 7 of them and did put them up in my etsy store. I haven't had anything in there in a while. Here is the link in case you want to check out the rest of them.... BOOKMARKS.

I also managed to get a scrapbook page completed but I can't share that one with you until next week. And of course I had to get me a list going for things to complete next week while I am off. Things like 5 scrapbook pages and an Art Journal entry that I am sooo behind on...sorry Rachel :(
I ordered some button making kits yesterday so that I can try my hand at some button bracelets. I would really like to try handpainting on some of these and see how they turn out. Another project to add to the list

And I wonder why I can't turn my brain off at night.

Okay folks.....well it is Friday afternoon...time to wind it all down and head on out. I promise that my next blog post will be full of cuddly baby pictures.
