Today I woke up to an amazing turkey breakfast with all the fixins. We had Thanksgiving lunch with Big daddy's family , and had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with good friends. We ate, laughed, and laughed some more. The only drawback to not hosting is no leftovers. So the family made a gorgeous dinner/breakfast that I was lucky enough to wake up to. The boy wrote out the place cards himself, grandma and the divas made the penguins, and deviled eggs.
the plate is mine and has turkey, whipped potatoes with cream cheese, half and half, as well as butter. Smothered in turkey gravy made with half and half. (see a theme here?) creamed cucumbers and onions, dressing, deviled eggs, and the adorable olive penguins that I saw on Once upon a plate and showed my kids. So a wonderful way to wake up, and a delicious start to my day/night.
so the holiday season is kicking off with a bang business wise for me, which is good, but I really have to keep on top of things, make lists, and stay organized to prevent frustration, and procrastination. I have been busy dyeing and am looking forward to stocking everything.
I will end this with a few photos of my dyework this last week. I am out of energy, Sundays are my happy. but worthless days.

My first meaty post here on blogger. I had recently started a meager blog here, but this works a little better with my site and is waaaayyyy pretier.
So this week I have been playing a bit in the kitchen. Those of you who know me can stop laughing at any time. I tried these yummy potatoes that my whole family loves. It was encouraging and inspiring. I have made choc chip cookies twice in one month! It's nuts, and a little bit fun, and Mason just loves cooking with me.
The boy has had a wonderful time this week. He turned six yesterday. We made his cake together, pics to come. Grandpa Ken would surely smile at his namesakes resemblance, and affinity for Birthday week. Last night before he finally wound down to sleep, he told me "mom you rock, this is the most awesome birthday ever! I'm sorry I didn't think it would be cool." It definitely felt good that for a few fleeting moments I still maintain the ability to impress the kids. I know the day will come that I don't, sooner than I want. Just another reminder to be thankful for the time I am allowed to spend with them.
Okay so the suburban hermit does in fact dye. More on that later when the hermit heads to bring home the bacon. Hopefully there will be a lull, and I will be able to share a bit. For now I need to nap before the night shift.

I started this blog to start offering my crafting tutorials, my first official being, “Scribbles & Giggles” aka: marbleing with shaving cream.
I am all over the map with my crafting. I dabble in a lot, excel in some, and forget about a large amount of things I start. I can be a flake, just ask my husband about the $1000 embroidery machine I just had to have. In a year it has maybe seen 4 hours of use. (can you see my eyes rolling to the back of my head yet?)
So if you are like me, and need instant gratification with your crafting prowess, than stay tuned my first tutorial will be coming soon.
