A house of order?

ha ha. I used to! Brandon came home the other night and asked how my day went. I said, "We had three meltdowns. Logan had a meltdown which made Landen have a meltdown which made me have a meltdown." Unfortunetly Landen likes to be held way too much, I either have to do all the chores with him in my arms or don't do the chores. It can get so frustrating! I'm hangin in there though!

Here's my CPS take from Tami's awesome sketch. I know it's past easter, but I made it before the holiday, does that count??? Loved that little chick! Just some other fun cards I've made this week too.

Oh, and I've been putting this off forever. I've been tagged by three fun gals and it's time I share some random and very odd facts about myself:

1.) I'm HUGE into pop-up books. LOVE Mattew Reinhart and Rober Sabuda. I have a large collection of their books and Logan is only allowed to read them when I sit down with him. I think I would cry if they got destroyed. I even dabble in that art as well, although I'm horrible at it!

2.) I have to perm my hair because the bottom half of my hair is jet straight and the top half is really curly. Pregnancy hormones! What can you do? Luckily my sister is a cosmetologist!

3.) My favorite cereal in the whole world is Rice Krispie Treats Cereal. You can only find it at Super Walmart and I can eat a whole box in two days. (at least it's not in one sitting, which I CAN do might I add :) .

4.)I can fit my whole fist in my mouth.

5.) I am OBSESSED with candles. I love my house to smell wonderful and I have a whole bin filled with candles for every season, month, day, etc of the year!!

6.) I'm a list person. I make a "to do" list everyday and check it off when I've completed something. I often put little things on there like eat breakfast so that I can at least cross off one thing even if I don't get to anything else!

7.) I love projects. I just bought the 52 projects book that Ali Edwards recomended and I love it. I'm starting this week!

So that's a little bit about me. I'm a little quirky I know, but I love it! Thanks for stopping by!

Kandis, these are adorable. The first one with the little tree is my favorite. Love reading about you. I just looked up that 52 projects book and it looks interesting.

Wonderful cards, girl! I think my fave is the giraffe one, but really they are all great. It was fun learning more about you. :) Have a great (hopefully meltdown-free) weekend!!!

(Sorry about the deleted post. I am a bad typist, and it just drives me crazy to see grammatical errors or things mispelled. Just one of my quirks. ;) )

Oh, Kandis! These are all fabulous!

these cards are super great! do you have a sling for the little guy? i just got one (mine is 8 months old) and it's been a friggin' life saver...seriously!
i now do chores with him in the sling, rather than hanging on my hip :) it makes things easier!

Your house will return to order, eventually. It does get better. Amazed that you have time to create, good for you, us mommies need that break for ourselves even if it is only a short time. Loved reading your list too, never thought about putting breakfast on my list. That would make one feel accomplished with something, and I often forget to eat it. Great idea!
