Yesterday was my first day working from home. I started off with a nice wog in the fog. More walk than jog. I have to figure a way to fit in a work out now. No more lunch hour work outs.
I was opting for an easy breakfast, preferably cereal...then Jeremy found the sausage. I couldn't say no. Our breakfasts are usually on the run since I am huslting to get me and them out the door and to daycare before I head to work. I need to cherish this break with them, so I made them pancakes!
Next up, I made some time for crafting. I have been slacking on my Project Restyle. I usually don't get home until at least 6, and by the time I make dinner and do baths it bedtime and I all I want to do is nothing. I needed a quick project to complete during naptime, something I could start and finish. I have been saving all my cereal boxes since I saw this map.
Of course the map project hasn't been started.
I have been wanting to figure out some cheap/free packaging for my Etsy shop 1. because I am sick of buying packaging from the post office and 2. I like the idea of reusing what I have and not creating more trash. So, I got out the ol' sparkly glue and some OLD magazines and got busy. I had a dress to ship today and I thought it would be fitting to use a February issue.
I cannot believe I had a 1997 Glamour. WOW!
I cut it open so it would be easier to work with. Then I just ripped out the pictures and decoupaged them to the box. I love to decoupage. It's super easy and quick.
I went with the Valentines theme.
And now I have something free and cheap to send a package in. I did another one because I worried about sending this one overseas. So I stuck with felt, tacky spray, and kept it simple.
And then we did a dance.
