Monthly Craft Challenge: Halloween or Fall

I have been a bit of a procrastinator {shock} about working on my crafts for Heidi's Monthly Craft Challenge. It didn't help that I have been feeling cruddy the past few weeks either. But I have a few things to show off....and a few things left to work on that I will probably post about closer to Halloween!

I went Mod Podge crazy this month and made three different crafts using scrapbook paper and Mod Podge! They all turned out pretty cute, but the first one is by far my favorite:

Halloween Picture Frame

Fall Sign

BOO Sign

Fabric {for a project that I will finish eventually}!

Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I have NOT slowly stopped caring what I look like at school drop off and pick up. I did NOT start out the year wearing nice pants, hair fixed, and makeup on....and slowly stop caring what I look like all together. I am NOT now going to drop off and pick up with my 'house cleaning' clothes on, bed head, and not a drop of makeup! I would NEVER go out in public looking like I just rolled out of bed!

I did NOT wait in line for about 30 minutes at a local kids resale just to get Eli a SUPER cute smocked outfit for only $10! I would never wait in line that long just to get a great deal on some kids clothes.

I did NOT ask Jason to get my fall decorations out of the attic the weekend and then proceed to open up the containers, pick about four things out, and then pack up the rest because I just wasn't in the mood to decorate {or constantly get fake leaves out of Eli's mouth for the next two months}!

I did NOT spend the part of the weekend with sick kiddos who took really LONG nice naps! I did NOT use that long nap time to work on craft projects instead of cleaning up my house or folding the clothes in the laundry basket {which have NOT been there for going on two weeks}!

I am having one of those BLAH days....actually it has really been a BLAH week! I haven't been feeling great the past couple of days, so I called and talked to my doctor on Tuesday. I went in to see him yesterday and didn't really get a whole lot accomplished. We talked a little and he changed up some of my meds...but so far I am still feeling cruddy {and maybe a little worse today than I have been all week}.

I have a ton of stuff to do...laundry and dishes that never seem to end! And I really wanted to work on some fun crafty stuff for Heidi's Monthly Craft Challenge. But that isn't going to be happening today {so sad}, and it may not happen this weekend either if I don't start feeling better! Plus, I feel kind of guilty using what little energy and feel good time that I have on crafty stuff when the laundry is piled to the ceiling and fly are starting to circle the dirty dishes in my sink!

I have a bunch of stuff that I really want to blog about too {Henry and Grant playing soccer, Henry losing TWO teeth, some beautiful roses on my trellis, and all my crafty stuff that I haven't felt good enough to work on}, but I am being lazy! I don't feel like editing and uploading pictures right now, so instead you get a random rambling blog post with no fun pictures or anything....I'm sure you are all SUPER excited about that {if you are still reading that is}! I will be posting about all that stuff soon...so at least you have a little something to look forward to {more pictures and less rambling}! And I have been planning {in my head anyway} a little giveaway too, but not feeling great has put that on hold for a while.

The boys have soccer practice tonight, but Eli and I are probably going to skip it and stay home with our feet propped up {I would like for my ankle to be normal size at some point this weekend}. We are doing leftover spaghetti {that my mom made forus yesterday} for dinner....no cooking or cleaning the kitchen two days in a row YAY! So, I guess that is all the ramble that I have for now. Hopefully I will get a post up tomorrow...I really want to share pics of Henry missing two teeth and tell you all the story of how he lost two in two days!
