Working 9 to 5

For over a week now, I have been working full time to help fill in for a co-worker who is out on maternity leave. Kudos to you moms out there that work full time, keep a family feed and dressed - in clean clothes, your house in tip top shape, find time to blog, make fun crafts and tackle so many home decor projects. I survived the first week, but it did take it's toll and now I have a cold to boot, but it's getting much better.

So needless to say I haven't had much time for anything - including blogging.  Once we finally get home - usually after 6:00, make some dinner, clean up, do reading time, baths, get in a couple minutes of play time, it's time for bed and time to start the process all over again.  I am usually on the computer all day at work, who wants to come home and jump on the computer again - know what I mean?     

I do have some exciting news - I entered my Gerber Daisy Specimen Art into The CSI Project's weekly link party last week.

I was Amanda's Pick. So that totally made my day.

I love those daisies.

Ever since I took down my St. Patrick's Day decor my little Dollar Tree frame has been sitting empty.  So I decided no matter how late it was, I was going to do something with that frame.  Isn't it pathetic.

 Can you believe it's been like that for more than a month now?  See, no kidding, I took this tonight.

So I pulled out some of my scrapbook supplies - I keep coming back to this paper combo.

I cut a 3.5 x 3.5 out of the gray flower paper.

Then cut out a 2.5 x 2.5 of the yellow.

Add my Gerber Daisy sticker.

And then use some alphabet stickers to spell out SPRING.

It still needed a little something, so I used my black pen and made some dashes around the edge.

I used a little double sided tape to attach the two pieces of paper together.

And then put it in my frame.

Super simple and now my poor frame isn't empty anymore.  I even made two of them.

Anybody want the other one?  Just leave me a comment and I will randomly select someone on Monday, April 25.
