Time for Beading

I still haven't had a chance to work on any crafts lately (hence the lack of posts) but I'm hopeful that will change soon.

My work schedule has changed so that my daughter won't need to go to daycare at all most weeks. However, my husband and I are planning to take her for a few hours a week anyway so that she stays familiar with the other kids and staff there. On the occasions when she does need to go, we don't want her totally freaked out because enough time had passed since the last time she was there that she doesn't remember the place at all.

On those days when she's at daycare and I'm home alone, I plan to get some work done. It won't be tons of time, and truth be told, I feel a little guilty about sending her to daycare while I'm sitting at home, but I look forward to being able to get a few projects done.

Entering a Fun Phase

Because my schedule has been hectic, I haven't had a chance to work on any crafts lately (or to even blog about them), but I have a sneaking suspicion that completing projects may gradually get a little easier.

Right now, working on anything when my toddler's around is tough because she gets curious about what I'm doing. She's been known to shake the tray table that holds my beads, sending those teeny tiny things all over my living room. I also have to spend the whole time guarding my tools so that she doesn't pick up my flush cutters or some other device that she could seriously injure herself with.
Today, I put her in her high chair and gave her a piece of paper and some crayons, and for the first time, she created her own craft, even if it was just a white sheet of paper with a bunch of scribbles on it.
I know she won't be beading, knitting or doing anything else that complicated anytime soon, but I think we're getting closer to the day when that's …
