Weekend Crafting

Hello new blog followers! 
I saw over the weekend that I gained a few new friends :) I am happy to have you and hope to get to know each of you better. Making new connections is what I love most about this place! 

Once again it seems that this weekend has flown by. I recently reached out and asked for some more help with my kids as the baby approaches. There are some cleaning and chores that I'd like to get done before the baby arrives that I just can't do well with the kids around, or are too loud to do while they nap. I also need more rest so I am just not getting as much done. My hope it that the things that need a good scrub, can get scrubbed now, so that later on it won't be as much work to clean (just a quick wipe down and sweep). 

So on Saturday my sweet mother-in-law (I call her Mom because she is like a mother to me- but on the blog I'll refer to her as MomK), took the kids for the morning. In the meantime I was able to run errands and clean my entire upstairs, and I mean CLEAN. I also purged of some junk that was still lying around from our move. 

The productivity payback however was great, since my body afterwards started having contractions and I felt like a someone shoved a wedge in between my pubic bone (I suffer from pubic symphysis diastasis). So at any rate, thus begins my prodromal labor. It started at this point with Jonas, so I am not the least bit surprised... just uncomfortable. This time however I know that I need to rest, embrace, and relax- with him I did not know that. 

So since for the rest of the day I was literally couch ridden (rest is the best thing for me when I feel this way) I worked on my second Waldorf doll and wig for my daughter. 

I am happy to say that I am done. All I need to do is sew the wig on, trim it, make some clothes, and embroider the face. This dolly will make her debut in my daughter's Easter basket. It will be so hard to wait since I know she want's one so bad. She has been stealing Jonas' little buddy a lot! 

I also got started on my Easter Egg swap that I am participating in with Julie over at This Cosy Life. I am about 1/3 done already and I am happy with my eggs. Once I finish, I will share them with you! 

So here is to a great weekend, minus the prodromal labor part! What have you been working on? 

Always, Nicole 


  1. Nesting is important, but I am glad you know to rest and take care of yourself now.

  2. I completely understanding the nesting instincts, but take good care of yourself! If you need any additional help, let me know. You're more than welcome to bring the kids by for a morning if you need to rest or get things done!

  3. Ah, nesting. Wish I had some of that energy right now. Love that doll, I have never been able to make waldorf doll heads properly.


I love to chat! Please comment :)
