So for the record Ethan has been potty trained for months and months. It's just that I finally put the finishing touches on the scrapbook page last night. Funny story, I made the background of this AND it's partner in the two page layout about 6 months ago. Loved it, never got around to adding the photos. Well last night I decided to add photos (these are just from around that time, I didn't want to do potty pictures) and I could not find the second page to this layout. I mean it was just gone. So I started cleaning. I mean not straightening, which I do in my craft room every other day or so, but CLEANING. Dumping out drawers, sorting pens, straightening cardstocks, reorganizing, heck I even sorted my two huge tins of buttons into color groups in clear jars which I lined up on a shelf (cute!). So I have a SUPER clean craft room now. Found tons of stuff I thought was gone forever. A few things I forgot I bought, (I have two packs of that super hot clear cardstock.) But no right side for this layout. So I just shrugged and went with a one page layout.
I decided I'm going to make one two page layout for each month. I did that for the first year each kid was a baby. I'm going to do it with whatever random photos I have for the year. Then those 24 pages will make one scrapbook and I'll move on. I used to make probably ten pages a month. Then I got overwhelmed and just quit. Well, DRAMATIC slowdown. I mean if you go backwards in the book this is in within a few pages Stephen is in diapers too. Lame. So this one layout a month thing, it sounds do-able. Just need to print some January pictures and get it going.
I finished the quilt top for the swap I'm in. It's a secret swap, so my partner doesn't know they are my partner and I don't know who is sewing for me. I love this kind because I can show what I'm making to the group on Flickr and on my blog. I'll probably quilt this in a meander with pink thread.
In Other News: I have a crazy busy rest of the week. I might squeek one more blog post in later today (might show you my buttons in jars too because it's AWESOME) then I won't likely post till Monday. I'll miss you guys. I won't likely be crafting either so I'll miss that too.
Also: I think I'm going to join the gym. It's a weird thing, I really want to. I've been praying about it and I feel like I should. Also Roniece is going to join up with me. We plan to go in evenings, after my kids get to bed/husband gets home. The weird part, Brian really is bummers about it. He doesn't believe I'll go, that I won't do the working out. He's generally downers! Which, for those of you who know Brian, is so odd. He's a GREAT husband, my best friend and tremendously suportive of me. He's throwing off my game with this talk of me not doing it. He's all, "Prove me wrong" but I don't want to carry around a spirit of trying to prove him wrong. I want him to say, "I know you can do it" and then try to prove him RIGHT. So I'm still thinking I'm going to do it, only I guess I'll do it without Brian's support.
