The Funky Chicken

Honestly, I've been in a bit of a funk lately....aka all of February, and maybe part of January there it is, my too legit to quit excuse for the lack of substantial and hilarious blogs. As per my usual around here...OF COURSE!

I was starting to feel a little less "funked" and then my Baby Bear came down with HELL and we literally did not leave the bedroom, or bed for that matter (except to go to the Dr.), for an entire week. And then we struggled to keep it together for another week after that, and that was the large part of the month. Now I've just been overwhelmed with catch up. As in, catching up to a tornado toddler who has been making up for lost time via dumping everything within reach onto the floor. Again and again and again and again......And eating CONSTANTLY so I feel like I might as well just move in to the kitchen so I can load and unload dishes in my sleep. My organization weeks haven't come to a complete halt, they are just a little side tracked with some of the small projects I've been working on that are less abrasive to my sanity. Not that sitting in a pile of cupboard contents and finding a better way to store them isn't healing in it's own right.

So, now I am attempting to climb out of the dark tunnel that has been my February, hopeful for some of that early Spring I was promised so I can feel a little more sane slash stir crazy but wanting to avoid leaving the comfort of my warm home. I have a few projects that I've been working on, like this bulletin board slash key holder (that I DID complete the next day), and I want to show off the cute ideas all this sick time has afforded me but today I don't have the photos ready (or the cleaning to make the photos viewable) so you'll have to settle for an Iphone capture of my new Spring (possibly Summer) yarn wreath. I really love the colors and I kinda think I could have done better on the flower placement. Alas, I use tacky glue because I'm too lazy to get floral wire and figure out how to do it that way.

I'm welcoming Spring to my doorstep! P.S. This Spring I AM going to sand down and paint this awful, chipped door. Hate.It.
P.P.S. Tutorials for the felt flowers can be found at the lovely blog of Mrs. Priss, here & here. I was doing yarn wreaths prior to finding her blog but I know an entire wreath tutorial as well. Basically it's exactly the way it looks, super easy!
