{first day fun!}

Yep…first day of school for everyone in our area…

For us, we've had a crazy start this year. The older two kiddos started on separate days and the two youngers (as I like to call them) started today, sorta!! No real school work, but I will show you what we did in just a second!!

First, let's show off the kidlets. 

yep, the obligatory pictures of the first day of school…

Wildness aside, even though I didn't have time to really sit in the craft studio today (*GASP!!!*), I did take some time to take some pictures of some works in progress (WIPs).

and my last little secret that I wanted to spill tonight is a little fundraiser I'm doing!!

Our little homeschool is called Brazos Wood Academy, and this year, we are doing a fundraiser for some new books for us this year. We want to raise around 300$ to finish off our book needs for this semester. And one of the products I'm offering for this fund raiser is a new coffee cup cozy!! yay!!!

    I hope you get sewing time today! It can be so hard to juggle kids and creating, can’t it?
