What 'Ya Doen?

I don't know what you are doing, but me...I'm moving...Again!  Why stay in one place and begin to feel a sense of belonging when you can throw everything you own into a box or the garbage can and start all over somewhere else!?!  

We are packing our bags and boxes and moving from Minnesota to Utah.  I am about 50% thrilled, 50% horrified.  By the end of the month I have to survive a grad party this weekend, Madison's High School Graduation, Emmalee's 8th birthday which just so happens to be ON Father's Day...My anniversary, Emmalee's baptism, AND packing/cleaning this three story house.  I have been totally absentee here on the blog and my FB page trying to just make it day to day.  This picture, while taken 2 weeks ago...pretty much shows exactly what the same room looks like today.

I managed to get the garage cleaned out and piled up all this wood!  I am SO hoping to assemble kits and put them for sale...but honestly, I don't even know how or when.  Still, I am a woman full of hope, so, I will plan to do it.  Maybe the heavens will part, angels will descend, and things will come together before the end of the month.

For some reason these pics all loaded sideways.  I decided to leave them to portray a more accurate view of the Sew*CakeMakers right now.  I have been working on orders.  This is one of the recent Ipad stands sold on Etsy...

We have been reading.  This book is HILARIOUS!  I totally recommend finding it at your local library.  Children's books that entertain Mom along with Emmers, Its a Winner!

I have cut, sanded, painted, lettered, assembled, and shipped a pile of Father's Day frames...I have a couple unpainted kits left and about 2 saw frames if you want one shipped out this week ;0}

We pulled out the fancy pen holder attachment for the silhouette Cameo to address Madison's grad party invites.  It worked like a charm and everyone thought Mads or I had some stinken great handwriting.  Thank you Silhouette for making me look SO GOOD!

With everything going on... Can I just say, I have never been more jealous of a cat before in my whole life!?!  We came home from Church on Sunday to this.  Show off!

Apparently the stress hasn't effected Princess too much.  She is still able to sleep just fine, LOL.

This here was the cause of such a tender moment for me...a little moment frozen in time that would make for a fabulous sappy Maytag commercial.  My big boy, the one begging for a drivers permit at the age of 15...I pulled his laundry out of the dryer the other day and found this guy!  It might sound SO SILLY, but it made my heart glow.  My little baby Eli, even though he is getting so big and won't let me say hi to him out in public any more...he still has toys falling out of his pockets in the dryer.  Awe!

So, tonight I am making a graduation Spot-It game.  Yep.  That is the pressing job that is keeping me out of bed tonight.  We are less then 48 hours from our party and I am sitting here making a card game.  Heaven help us.  I will be back in a few days with fabulous pictures of the party I will be SO EXCITED to have over.  See you later!
