Crafting with Kids at home

So We all know that this blog is mainly Crafts. This upcoming Year of 2015 I will be introducing some mommy chat on here. I hope y'all don't mind. So with that being said I will begin with explaining how I manage to craft and still keep up with my crafty projects while 4 kids are running around my house.

Well I usually set up a time to craft in my Personal Filofax. Because lets face it My children are my life and they will always come first.  Although sometimes my little one who is 7 wants to keep me company I take out the ugliest scrap paper ( lets face it we all have that one paper we hate) and I take out my Fiskars or Martha Stewart punches and just let him punch away. We call it crafting time. Now while Nirvana and guitar sounds(yes we were crazy and got our oldest a guitar for christmas) are blasting from my Two oldest kids bedroom (yes they share a room), I put on my own headphones and get crafty with some of my Fav crafty YouTubers.

The hardest thing is making time. Not finding time. I will make a video, Then go play mine craft with my 10 yr old while the video is uploading.  Or do a load of the unforgiving pile of laundry that I have had since the kids have been home for holiday break, While I upload or edit a video. Mom is short for multitasker.(lol)

Tip 1) If you are crafting and have a little little one don't be afraid to let them get dirty. I used to love to let my 7yr old play with my markers while I was working on a project. Some of my favorite drawings have came from this time.

Tip 2) if your kids are being loud it just means they are having fun. So get some headphones and craft away lol.

Tip 3) if you have a project for a DT due pre record or make the videos when you have the time. With kids things always come up.  I learned this first hand two weeks ago when my little one had a stomach bug

Well this is my Mom life hope you all stick around to see what happens next for this crazy crafty mom of 4 and I hope you enjoy my new 2015 Blog

No blogidays Say What !!!!

Well my Blogidays didn't turn out the way I had planned. Busy schedules turned into busy weeks and now there are only 6 days left until christmas. So here are just some of the projects I have created this month. Between Holiday parties, band concerts, gift buying, gift wrapping, and family time I have managed to get some of my december daily done along with embossing some wood veneer words in gold. Happy Holidays from my house to yours. This is the most wonderful and crazy time of the year. lol

December Daily Day 1

So here I am day 2 of December with my December Daily day one page completed, Laundry still needs to be done, so do the dishes, but who cares when I have just spent the entire morning crafting and editing videos for my Youtube channel. Come on people lets do what we love and forget about all the rest. Ok maybe not forget ( it will just pile up) but put it off for awhile. lol . Love the simple stories line of snap binders.

December documented Blogidays

So December has begun. This year not only will I be busy with my children's holiday activities, but I will also be working on my Christmas Card series, My planner series and My December daily series on youtube. So Talk about a super busy month for me. I will also be trying to do a daily blog.  This blogging thing is fairly new to me. So i am just going to wing it. I have a million things to do and yet here I sit enjoying my cup of coffee while working with my Simon Says Stamps What's brewing set. Trying to multitask while also uploading a planner video. ugh I need more hands
