I was looking for a corner to post today and I am running low! Or maybe just not looking at my surroundings the right way. Our house just isn't that big. Stand in the middle of it and spin around and you can pretty much see the entire house. It's…uh…cozy. Anyway, I looked at Soulemama's post and decided I'd go the photo mosaic route. How unoriginal. What a uncreative slacker I am today. The first photo is of our old dining room table. Someday we are going to refinish it. Under the paint there is a lovely mahogany table. Is that some kind of sin, painting over old mahogany? Oops. The second photo is of on top of our big bookcase. A jar of beach glass collected from close to where we live (the beach glass, not the jar) and the shells are from Costa Rica. The third shot is a photo wall in our bedroom. Captivating isn't it? Hey! WAKE UP! geez.

Here is the extent of this week’s crafting-a finger puppet bunny. Wow, huh? Aren’t you so very impressed. Oh-ing and Ah-ing over the detail and craftswomanship. Stop drooling everyone. Hold your applause.
I drew a little pattern for the wittle bunny and everything. “Did you really need a pattern? It is basically a rectangle with some ears.” Yes. yes, I did. Everytime I try to wing-it the result is not pretty.
My dear, sweet toddler is not being cooperative in my creative endeavors. I sit at my sewing machine and instantly, nothing but me and the machine are of interest. Little fingers are pulling out my threads, spinning my spool, and climbing on me. Ugh.
I may have to change the name of this blog to:
Colorfool WISHES she could Create
Colorfool Creates WHAT?
I did originally want the blog title to be just plain and simple, Colorfool, but it was already taken, now I have that stinkin’, lurking word creates always taunting me. Such pressure. I may seriously have to change it. I keep trying to be crafty and Keely keeps changing my plans.
This whole attachment parenting thing is working me over and it hasn’t even been 3 years yet. It gets easier right? Someone? Anyone?
