Feeling that Itch!

So, I know it's been over a month since I posted anything.  I do have a good reason!  I have been adjusting to my new daycare business.  It's a long long day of keeping lots of kiddos entertained, happy, fed, and relatively clean :)  I've got 5 kids under the age of 3 years old and they are wonderful and hilarious and I love them dearly; however, they are stealing my crafting and blogging time with their adorable shenanigans.  Little Baby Bear here is all the explanation I need.

 What is it about boys and dirt? And now to what's been on my mind.

Every couple years I get this itch, an itch for change.  Not just any sort of change, a big change- something dramatic.  When I was growing up we moved every few years, or sometimes more often.  I think I got used to the change, and I even liked it.  Now we've been in our house for nearly 4 years, and I'm getting an itch.  My wonderful husband doesn't understand it, he is just fine with things staying the same.  He just shakes his head and helps me move the heavy stuff when I decide to rearrange the furniture in every room of the house.  He was slightly less understanding when I stayed up late redesigning my blog, but he conceded when I told him it was a late night or a can of paint.  (Anything to avoid paint!)

I have to say that I am pretty happy with my new look here.  I wasn't quite sure what I wanted at first, then in my googling I found and found everything I didn't know I was looking for- for free!  It was very liberating to redecorate the blog, doing something for me and the blog and satisfying my need for change.  It's really quite powerful, if it's not satisfied by simply watching my baby grow into a little boy in just 8 short months. He's started eating people food, and he loves it so much that he's now scrounging for scraps of food on the floor under the table like a little puppy.  Chances are if he's not climbing up my leg, he's heading over for a meal under the table.

I have two new(ish) projects to share, one of which hasn't been photographed, and I want to do it justice.  I'm not sure of how much I'll be able to craft for a little while, so I'll post when I can.
