Finally Friday!

I am so happy that it is Friday! This week flew by and I am hoping to get some much needed cleaning out of the way. I am also looking forward to memorizing some basic code for my site. I had so many great posts but was unable to get my content to show up properly. I was able to update a new page: my blogroll! Here you will find the blogs I enjoying reading on a daily basis. A good blog can really make my day.

Sometime this weekend I am hoping to take time to go to the beach. We live close to Santa Cruz. Here is a snapshot.

Here we are in April and it is still Sweater Weather

The sun has been making a small appearance here and there but it is just not enough for me to ditch my cozy sweaters and wraps. I live in central California and it should be warmer by now. The lack of warmth has me painting my new project a sunny yellow. My etsy searches are full of words like “French”, “yellow” and “blue”. My pinterest searches have been mostly about fruit and positive sayings. I guess I will just have to be patient.

Anyhow, I have been doing a bit of spring cleaning around the house and am in the process of weeding through all my clothing. I have kept plenty of things that are out of style or do not fit because I keep thinking I will make something out of them. This sweater is a good example. I have been holding on to it for, well, I probably shouldn’t say…

This week I ripped the stitches out and cut it up. I made an infinity scarf of sorts. It isn’t a long one that you can double wrap; there just was not enough sweater to do that. I thought about combining another sweater or material with it but did not like anything mixed with it. Here is how it turned out.

Now I can be cozy without overheating and I do not have the sweater taking up room in my house anymore.

Creating a Family Binder

As I got off the phone with my son’s new soccer coach and printed out all the rules, regulations, meeting places and times I realized folding it up and stuffing it in my purse does me no good.  It is time to make a binder.  To get some good ideas for a family binder I turn to Pinterest.  Here are some of the different ideas I am tossing around.

Have a great day! ~ lauraj
