Years ago I started making r-shirts for our girls to wear for Father’s Day. But two years ago as they were getting older and our lives were getting busier, I stopped making them.
Then while I was talking with Mr. Byrd this year, he brought it up. It turns out that it had been one of his favorite things about Father’s Day each year.
So this year I brought the t-shirts back. And honestly, can I say that I am so thankful for Cricuts and heat transfer vinyl? In the past I spent way too long hand cutting out freezer paper stencils.
This year I let our youngest pick out the shirts which is why all three girls had rainbow holographic shirts that read, “Dad’s Favorite.” I should have made some for the dogs too.
Thankfully you don’t need all your toes to make t-shirts because recently, I tried to remove one of mine (on accident.)
I would try to explain what happened but all you need to do is read the name of this website and you’ll get the gist of it.
However I was at church by myself when I missed the box I was trying to cut with a freakishly sharp box cutter and instead cut through my shoe and into my toe. Thankfully one of the staff members at church is also a nurse and was able to come running. However on the bright side, I got to add bright pink stitches to my shoe to sew it back together, which I kinda like and I got a tetnus shot out of it. Now I can do any type of metal crafting I want for the next 7 years…..
The bad news is that a tetnus shot won’t keep me from tossing my sewing machine across the room while trying to sew through some impossibly thick rag rugs. I don’t know if I’m ever going to finish this project but I will tell you that finding leather purse straps for a DIY tote bag will cause a migraine. Don’t worry – I’m not really going to toss it across the room, mainly because I don’t want to repair the drywall.
In my downtime lately I’ve been painting.
But I don’t have much downtime because it’s summer swim season.
So if you can’t find me, look here…
because my kids are setting the pool on fire. We are so proud of all three of them who have had phenomenal seasons.
And if you can’t find us at the pool, chances are that you can find me at Michael’s Camp Creativity. My 9-year-old is in love with Camp Creativity. We’ve done two crafts there so far and she has a calendar planned of other ones she wants to go to. If you’re not sure what it is, it’s a very affordable ($3) craft time for kids at Michaels during the summer.
So far she’s made unicorn slime and a fire breathing dragon. This week she’s missing making the clay pot lion because she’s visiting her grandparents and she’s already told me how bummed she is to miss it.
If you want more information about Camp Creativity, check it out here. They’re not paying me (or know I exist) but I think it’s an awesome way to get kids out from behind a screen this summer.
There you go, life lately with all toes intact. What’s going on in your life lately?
