Crafting Attempts

As probably everyone who wanders into this blog has figured out my husband is in the Coast Guard. For our family that means he works 24 hours on/24 hours off and everyother weekend. And by working I mean gone away from the house for a full two days. So that means pretty much half of the week its just Madeline and I, and the other have we have a husband/daddy around. I am insanely afraid of the dark and hate nights that Taylor isn't sleeping here (and of course I miss him during the day too!) but I have finally started to accept this is military life and I am getting used to it. So half of my nights I have a lot of free time (Madeline goes to sleep between 7 and 8.. I go to bed usually between 12 and 1.) I'm not a tv watcher so a lot of my time has been spent reading crafty people's blogs. So I have decided to try my hand at it and I made my very first Christmas ragamuffin garland! I am still going to hang an ornament or two on it, I just haven't decided which one yet. I tied mine around the lamp that is beside my front door. Although it isn't as full as I had hoped (I cut my strips too short evidentially) for my first attempt I am very pleased!

Note: This table would normally be filled with my little odd collections, but my 15 month old enjoys taking all of those things off this shorter table. So it is bare..
