No Write May

The title says it all! I completely failed to blog or write all month so I have to write this one today. 🙂 LOL

Every month I print out my Google calendar and it has stuff to do all month. Or rather stuff I would like to accomplish all month. 🙂 I still love paper and pen and markers. 🙂 It also goes to my phone of course, Google, you know. 🙂 Well, there is not a lot of marking on it. 😦

Maybe I can justify it with being outside more. Maybe. I did plant flowers but half are already dead. No green thumb here! I do have a neat deck to sit on and have done that more. We are working on our fire pit area which have not used. Dang it. Add that to the list, need to make smores!

I see by my yellow highlights that I only cooked at home half the month. That is not good. In defense on that, we did travel a bit so the weekends we were eating out more. The school week was ok, normally eat out once. 🙂 I can come up with so many excuses! 🙂

I did win my step challenge this month and ahead of schedule! I was exercising! The scale doesn’t say it but I feel good. 🙂

My car decided to break, minor break, but still cost money. It is still a good car. I won’t bash it yet. 🙂

I did make the six-year mark for blogging this month! Yay me! 🙂 Like, every month, I pledge to blog more! Hope everyone has a great month of June! It has already hit high 90’s here, ugh. I think Spring is no longer a season for here. Double ugh.

Cheers to your June! 🙂

Having Fun With Paper

I have wanted to do quilling for a very long time now. I bought the beginning supplies at Hobby Lobby and then bought some boards and tools from an online quilling store. Quilling is making shapes with thin pieces of colored paper. It is done by curling the paper with a small tool. 🙂

A few weeks ago I sat in my living room and made my first item. It was fun and relaxing. I can’t wait to do some more projects with lots of different shapes.

I would like to sell a few once I get going with it. 🙂

This is what I did with it. My hubby has lots of wood pieces from projects so I decided to put one to use. 🙂

I’ve been enjoying the small art projects this month. It is getting my creative juices flowing.

With the end of May brings June, I will dive back into editing my book for the final pass. 🙂 I wanted a break from it.

And I will also be continuing more fun art stuff!

Have a great last day of May! 🙂
