Since Cason’s been teaching Aubrielle how to sew, I commissioned them to assemble my little pennants together after I punched them out with my Fiskars punch.
I have to say that I’m pretty proud of my little chick, who, for some reason, has taken to sewing and loves it! Cason is the one who taught ME how to sew, after I asked for a sewing machine a few Christmases ago (No kidding. His mom made him learn when he was young). I swear this guy has got an overabundance of patience to spare, so standing beside and helping Aubrielle, while she sews straight lines on her first pair of pajama pants, was something both her and him have loved to do together after she gets out of school each day. Typically our little 5 year old jumping bean has a hard time staying still, but surprisingly, will sit and concentrate on sewing for really long periods of time.
I snagged this short little video of her assembling the pennant garland all by herself, because I thought it was so cute.
the girl can barely reach the pedal. ha!
While flipping through some books a little while ago, I came across this quote below and was determined to have it somewhere in my home. Unlike Cason, I struggle daily with patience. It’s not that I lose my cool or get mad at anyone… I just have a hard time waiting for things to happen, or not getting a list of tasks completely done at the end of the day.
Cason frequently reminds me that slowing down, taking some time to let things work out on their own and not worrying about them, is sometimes the best way to get through my day. Easier said than done, for me, but I’m trying to embrace this way of thinking; because the latter only stresses me out.
Okay, so now that I’ve shared some of our Spring ideas with you…I want to see YOURS!
Have you done any Spring cleaning, reorganizing, decorating, DIY’ing or baking that you want to share with our readers!?

There really are no guidelines or requirements, I just think it would be fun for all of us to share what we’ve been working on lately. There are so many great posts out there that I know I’m missing, so do me a favor, and put them here, so we can all see them!
