Tomorrow is Christopher's first day of fifth grade and he's pretty nervous! And I'm envious of you moms who have children that are excited and can't wait to go back to school! I'd even take the child who is not ready to go, but willing! For a child with autism, change is very difficult and this past week has been hard on Christopher. For me and his dad too, who are dealing with tantrums everyday. So...I'm really looking forward to when he settles in and starts to feel comfortable with his teachers and new schedule! Soon! Deep breaths! Craft! Repeat! :)
Today I have an altered project to share. I haven't done one in a few blue moons!
This little colorful bucket is for the craft room, to hold pencils, scissors, etc. I used the Nifty Notions line from Doodlebug Designs...perfect for this project!
This pinwheel was a breeze to put together with a cool new die I got from My Favorite Things! And it actually works! Oh how I love this die!!! :) Too fun!
I also can't get enough of the Doodlebug Boutique Brads! They are the cutest brads available!!!! Look at the little scissors on my bow!!! Cute, huh?!?!
Oh, before I go, I have to tell you about an EASY recipe I made last night for dinner. It was so easy that I read the recipe several times because I was sure that I was missing something!
This is Spaghetti alla Carbonara with Peas and it's so delicious! I found it on Pinterest! I've found so many great recipes and food blogs on Pinterest, this one from Closet Cooking. Give it a try...you will not believe how simple and flavorful!
Have a super day! :)
