One of them days...

Today was one of those unbearable days where you just want it done and gone. We are out of everything and I am thinking of waiting till mid night to see if our paycheck came in and go to the store and get what we need so I can have a warm breakfast for everyone. I do have to admit it, I did good on stretching on what we had left.

Lillian had stayed the night at her friend's house and when she got home my brother took her and Emma to moms to go swimming. Which helped me get the house clean and got some quiet time. I even got some ingredient together and made sugar cookies.
I wish Matt was in a better mood. I let him sleep till noon and then he took a nap at 130 till 5pm. I should of let him sleep cause he was really unbearable to hang around. He didn't have any patience with me or the girls and got mad cause He had to do the kitchen. Which I had started and I needed him to finish cause he's been telling me for the past couple of days he would do it. I hate talking to him when he is cranky and short tempered. So I ignored him the rest of the evening and eventually he went back to the room and I am guessing he is asleep. I really hate it when he acts that way but if he is like that all the time there is no way in heck I will stay around so its a good thing its just once in awhile he is like that.

I am hoping I get a job soon, I am sure that will relieve some stress. I am looking around for another place to live, our lease will be up in August and I need to find something that isn't going to cost us more than we are supposedly "saving". I am considering on Copperas Cove, some of the places there are actual houses and the same price we pay a month. It would be close to Fort Hood and it will benefit Matt going to work and When I get a job on post it would be easier.
I am just unsure of the safety, crime rate, and schools there. I am not really to familiar where some streets are.

But any who I did may a cute little wallet. :D

I think I did a good job with doing the pattern myself and using red felt and scrap fabric. I might be adding a little bit of embellishment. But not bad. Also Charlie did a good job being the background model dontcha agree. lol. Well I think thats it for now. Its after 10pm and its nice and quiet. I think I will make me some coffee to keep myself awake for my little mission tonight :D Later gaters.

job hunting is depressing

well I found out that the way I budget for our bills and stuff is not going as well as I hoped. So I have no choice but to buckle down under the pressure of todays failed economy and find a job. I been applying online at several locations and what is making me annoyed is the "assessment" test. I answer honestly but apparently its not good enough and I am penalized for it. I have great leadership and management skills but of course thats isnt enough is it.
My husband is in the military and he told me if I applied at AFFESS I should be able to get a position with them soon because I am a spouse of a military branch.
So I hope I get something soon cause IF I really think about it I am ready to return to the workforce and it would be great to bring home some money to help with bills and have extra for special treats for my girls.
According to the website I should hear a reply from them in 3-5days so I hope I hear something soon. Next on my worry list is finding someone to watch my daughters. I could employ my brothers to watch them and depending on my pay I will pay them this way they will have like a summer job. Once school starts back up Lillian will be fine and I just need to find day care for Emma. So wish me luck guys cause I will be needing it.

cupcakes and things

well I thought I would add some projects that I am been working on :D I am sure you guys will enjoy some of these projects.
this one is a pillow and two bean bag set that I made for my niece as well as the orange flower clip that I made for her.

The white felt envelope I made out of white felt and did the blanket stitch and added a couple of buttons for the closure.

The two cute plushies you see-which I love- were done in an 20 minute each. The cup cake one I made for a swap and I hope my swap buddy will love it. The coffee one was inspired by one of my buddies on cutoutandkeep.

I really had alot of fun with all these and these were recent projects I also made a "sexy box" out of my cell phone box. lol.

Not sure what I will put in the box but I will find something. :D

crafting is fun

I must tell you the most fun thing about crafting is having the right organized chaos to do so! And Here is my happy organized chaos below :D

See how lovely my new organization for my crafting. My hubby brought this home one day from work and I love it. I got to go through a bunch of boxes, drawers ect and fill up one of these cabinets with all my goodies. Not to mention I dont really need to restock on certain items since I can always see where everything is. :D.
This comes in handy since my store is finally open online :D the site for that is here.
