Breaks = Better Wife & Mother

I realized last week that I really need breaks to be a better mother and wife. After thinking about how that can happen, I decided to ask for help. My neighbor Carmen always offers to play with O so I took her up on it on Wednesday. She kept him at her house for a couple hours so I could be home alone to enjoy crafting. During that time, I sewed curtains for my craft bookshelves. On Thursday, my mother-in-law offered to keep O for the WHOLE day. I had a wonderful lunch with my friends and then went to the gym before I picked up O. That was a huge blessing so thanks Kathy! This morning my sweet husband took care of our son so that I could go to Pilates (my favorite). After Pilates I dropped off this cake I made for my friend Lori.  She has been wonderful to purchase 3 cakes from me lately. Thanks for the business and referrals Lori! Here are some pictures of my projects.
