Wherein another friend takes pity on my abject craftlessness

Tuesday is my SAHM day. I love it. Love, love, love it. I bustle around the house cooking, cleaning, folding laundry, playing with the children, losing my hearing as a result of the world's loudest screaming being unleashed directly into my ear canals, reading stories, listening to soft rock (loudly, due to the aforementioned hearing loss). Liam and I go for a walk while Soren is in preschool. Our next door neighbors usually come over and hang out for a while. The children are provided with three nutritious meals in a single day. It's fabulous. I feel like I'm playing house and just completely rocking the hell out of it.

Today was even better because my friend Pam came over, lugging huge containers full of craft materials, including her Silhouette, and we had a wild crafting palooza.

The results:

Soren made this from a kit I ordered from Oriental Trading Company.

He also made this bug out of pom poms and pipe cleaners.

Pam was kind enough to let him use some materials to make this frightening display.

And we grown-ups made scary word... things. Mine would have been prettier had I thought through what black vinyl lettering would look like against a black and orange background. And if I hadn't put two blocks of the same size right next to each other. Also, as I scrutinize this picture I realize the "Y" is backwards. 'Cause I'm just that awesome. (I thought it looked kinda weird!) Anyway, Pam's was much cuter and said "BEWARE." (Possibly for BEWARE: RACHEL IS CRAFTING.) I think it's adorable anyway, though. Warts and all. Witches have warts, right? So it's totally appropriate for Halloween.

Thanks, Pam!

Dear Rachel ~

Your pictures don't work. Please fix.

Love, Tianna

Fixed! Thanks for the heads up, Tianna!

Perhaps it attributable to my own uncraftiness that, until you pointed out your "mistakes", I thought your spooky sign was professionally flawless.

I thought the sign was amazing!

But I'm comforted to know I'm not the only perfectionist around.

I love all these recent posts--so much delicious vivid information.

Tell more! More!!
