As if the desire to sleep wasn't bad enough, but I am hungry too. Baby must be growing, I have been hungry all friggin' day. And really, I don't want to eat anything our home has to offer. Goldfish? Over them! Graham crackers? Already snacked on those today! Rice cakes? Not appealing lately! What I want is a big, juicy, yellow and red organic apple.
Is this one of those late night preggo cravings I always hear about? I have been coveting apples throughout this pregnancy, worse than I did with Maddie. The irony is that I am allergic to them! Oh the humanity! But for whatever reason, I have less of a reaction to organic apples. But damn that apple looks good!!! Of course I ate the last apple Monday and have yet to return to the store!
Anyhoo... changing subjects and hoping to get the apple craving out of my mind...
I have almost completed my Christmas banner and cannot wait to post it! It is made out of embellished fabric flags (Nikki's banner inspired me.) I began this project last Christmas and have been working on it sporadically ever since. I just need to buy some eyelets and string it together. But I am quite proud of it and eager to hang it when the holidays arrive.
In the meantime I have been working on two other projects. The first is a paper Halloween banner. I just have to buy the ribbon and string it. I made two Christmas banner last year. One I kept and the other was a Secret Santa gift. Here is the Christmas banner I made last year (fyi, this one was actually completed and displayed in time for Christmas!)
My other project is three wooden blocks I am decorating. I bought one for each of us. I covered them in coordinating card stock. Each will have a current photo and a baby photo of us, plus other embellishments. I thought they would look great on the mantle above the fireplace. These will take a little longer. I have to find the right photos and embellishments. Perfection takes time!
Well, it is 11:30, maybe it is time to attempt the sleep thing again. Wish me luck!
