SUPERHERO....NOT...

I wish I was a super hero...then life wouldn't be so tricky...I'd have enough energy and time to get all the things in my house done that I need to and still be able to have loads of time up my sleeve, and do it all with ease....
Sadly, I am not....

The reason for my long absence is that Jacob has been sick again...he still is, which means I get little sleep because I am up as long as I can stay awake every night watching making sure he doesn't stop breathing! I do eventually sleep and then wake up with a start in the moring hoping that I have not missed him having an episode...It's a horrible rollercoaster ride...

On a better note, Jacob and I have found a homeschooling group that he gets together with every thursday..he evn went when he was ill...last friday he went to a huge indoor playgym and they had a fabulous reptile show...he got to pat all manner of reptiles...needlass to say he is so excited he has found these other kids...me too just quietly as he now finally can experience socialisation with people his own age!

My great nephew turns 1 this week and he is having a super hero party...I was busy yesterday morning making some very simple capes for Jacob, Maddie and Connor...took 2 hours all up to make, which I thought wasn't too bad, and only cost 6 dollars per outfit including the masks!!!If you want to know how to make it just email me...happy to help!!!

I also have been reorganising how my house is set up, which has lead me to do spome painting of some ugly dark wood bookshelves I have, and also now I am going to paint...the colour I am more than likely picking is just behind the bookshelf...I have white lounges from Ikea and I am going to do black frames all over the wall...I already have black cushions...


WHAT DO YOU THINK? Do you like the colour?


Ok...well, better go and get organised for the party..I'll leave you with some photos of what I have been up to...



Oh...thanks so much to Misty over at Creative Itch...I won an incredible mixed media set...



Take care and have a wonderful weekend every one.


Until next time
lots of it

Oh my friend, I'm SO sorry to hear that Jacob has been doing poorly. I'm glad you got into a HS group he likes and hopefully you will start to see some relief soon.
The shelf is Fabulous, BTW. Great work - and cool dream - I love that name! To answer your question, it is not going well. We have had some sad things happen in the adoption department recently and have decided to take the Summer off - unless something happens organically, we will re-evaluate in the Fall. Thanks for asking ;) xooxox
