Who else out there loves Duck Dynasty?? We are definitely fans around here! (Maybe not so much a fan of the major over-abundance of Duck Dynasty gear you see in the stores, though... but that's another thought train all together!)
From the very first time I ever saw the Robertson clan drinking out of mason jar wine glasses during one of their characteristic family dinners, I knew I wanted to make some myself. I love how these fun glasses turned out and they are super easy to make.
I can't wait for the boys to wake up to their Valentines Treasure Hunt! I also can't wait to spend the rest of my life with my best friend, my Valentine. Didn't we look cute down in Mexico six years ago?! I always put this pic up as part of our Valentine decor :)
I've got several different boredom buster/ what we've been up to lately type posts
all ready to go... well, the photos are edited at least...
but, ya know, I'm kind of in the mood for just a random type of post.
So here you have my inner dialogue out for some air I guess. :)
1) Why do I want this blog to grow? I can't say I ever had the intention for my little half-a-blip of the internet to be something that would make money. I can say with absolute surety that competition is NOT what drives me...ever. And there is a massive lot of it in crafty mommy blogville. I have a Bachelor's degree in Public Relations and Advertising... and a hefty discomfort with networking on the side... nice, eh? So, why oh why do I make moves to help this blog grow, to get anyone beyond my own family members see what I share here? I think I've decided that this blog really just gives me something to do... I feel kinda vulnerable saying that, but I guess that's it. Like my intro says, it's a place that makes me happy... so I guess that's it too :) Maybe somewhere along the way a little income as a result and a few more skills in the social department wouldn't be such a bad thing either... :)
2) Today during a Phineas and Ferb re-run, they were at a mall and got all excited seeing the old kiddie toys they used to ride on. Phineas remembers himself being a super cool astronaut during the ride. Zoom out to his older self riding the barely-moving rocket ship and he says, "In retrospect, I may have over-romanticized those memories." Still makes my totally laugh! Who does that statement not ring a bell with?!
It occurred to me recently that Valentines season is always a pretty full time for us- we do a lot of projects together and I do quite a bit on my own too! I love the creative energy I always get- somehow late winter isn't quite so overwhelming as Christmas I guess. :)
Anyway, I thought I'd post some of my posts from Valentines past here in one place...
