I've had all summer to think about it. Being alone... all alone, for a few hours every day. So next Wednesday the kiddos all go back to school, and here is what I've come up with so far:
I want to repaint some of Kynzies furniture in her room. She really like the color turquoise so I'm thinking that it would be cool to paint her night stand and toy box teal. I've wanted to do it all summer but never really got to it. So it will my first project.
And speaking of paint, I'm going to get the paint on the walls here matched so that I can do touch ups to this house. 6 people, small house, things get a bit scuffed.
A huge project I'm going to start working on, is organizing and saving all my digital photos from the last 5- you heard me- 5 years. I have most them saved on cds, but I would like to save them all one more time so if we get a new computer in the next year (like we'd really like to) my pictures will all be somewhere safe. (anyone have any advice on alternative ways to save my pictures? I don't know much about computers other than whats right in front of me)
I'd also like to make some more picture movies, so the kids can watch pictures from the last few years any time they want.
Another project I'd like to do is make a portable quilted growth chart. (just waiting for my Birthday in October so I can get a sewing machine)
The sewing machine will give me a whole world of projects... and the second thing I make will be t-shirt quilts for the boys. I've been saving there shirts since they were babies, and I have a huge amount for them now. So it should be a very very fun project. I'm really excited about it.
In my spare time... I'm going to practice taking pictures as much as possible. And hope to start a photo blog at some point.
I guess that's enough to keep me occupied for awhile, I hope to have most of these things done by Christmas... wish me luck!
