So working full time is taking a lot more out of me than I thought.  I will hopefully start posting more regularly.  I've barely had time to pack my lunch.  My most recent projects have been making a cupcake purse for my niece's birthday and reading some long neglected books.  Hope you have been having some productive weeks as I've been hiding out.

Pants and a dress

So I found the cutest Hedgehog print at Fancy Tiger.  I'm going to make L a pair of pants and H a little dress or smock.  It makes me think of Stargirl an how the main boy character collected ties with hedgehogs on them.  I think I'd like to get some plain red fabric to make a cuff on the bottom of the pants for L, hopefully will get these done in the next few weeks.

Big Boy Bed

So, rather than buy another crib we decided to buy L a regular sized bed, only problem, the kids will be sharing a very small bedroom.  Right now H sleeps in a cosleeper attached to my bed and L sleeps in the crib.  We finally found a loft bed that had high rails all around so L won't fall out.  It arrived very quickly, then I ordered a chemical free mattress for him, which took a bit longer to arrive since it has to be custom made.  Now all the pieces are here and we went and bought sheets today.  Now for Daddy to set it up... I hope L likes it.

Job Hunt

It's depressing.  I don't feel motivated at my work, I still want to do a good job, but it's hard to really care.  I'm very conflicted.  Also looking for another position inside the company does not look promising, there isn't much available right now.  Pretty much any other job would pay less than unemployment, and would require daycare so a double hit.  My husband and I are talking options.  It is both a blessing and a curse to have so much notice before your job disappears.

Well, my little ones seem pretty happy with their loot.  L decided to eat all his candy at once, he didn't have too much.  I worked this morning and my husband is working right now, so we gave them the Easter baskets in the 1/2 hour we overlap.

Hippitty Hoppitty...

I finally finished both bunnies today, just in time.  I know H is too little to know what is going on but I'm sure L will be happy with the finished product. I'm working Sunday morning so I'll give them their baskets after I get home.
