I know, I know....

I didn't fall off the face of the Earth, in case you were wondering :) I have just been totally swamped with my youngest daughter's play... making costumes(then fitting and resizing costumes), painting scenery, making props, and going to rehearsals. She was initially just directing it, but the last two weeks we had to have help from two teachers and she is now in the play too(Rapunzel). Needless to say, I have been very busy and stressed with it(I'm a perfectionist which makes things like this very intense).

Anyway, I really haven't done anything around the house, other than laundry and meals, but I did manage to finally find a spot for the kids hands. I hung it above my black cupboard and then put the boxes that I made under them. I really like the whole display. I couldn't get a good pic to show how nice and warm it looks, but you can get an idea from these....

And I had to throw this one in, because I thought the screen shot on the tv was funny :) They are both looking at me as to say "really, you are taking more pictures of this room?!".
And just another random spot in the family room.
And here is the little owl "leif" that I won in a giveaway, he was made by Gena Hart of Appalachian Doll, check out here Etsy store. Thank You Gena !

And last but not least, here is Milky White, one of the props I made for Into the Woods Jr.
Oh, and wait till you see the marvelous swap package that Tammy sent me. I loved everything and I will share pics with you in my next post. Please forgive me for my lack of posting, but hopefully things will settle down after this play is over, the show goes on Thursday and Saturday, and Sunday I will relax!!!

I hope all is well in blogland, I haven't been keeping up with any blogs for the last week or so, so much to do and so little time.

Until then, take care,



  1. Hi Tiff,
    I love where you put your hands picture.
    That was such a special piece.
    Too bad my little ones are all grown, I would love to have one.
    What an adorable kitty.
    And great job on the prop.

    Yes, try to find time to relax.
    You sure deserve it after all your hard work.

  5. Tiff,
    your children's precious handprints look wonderful framed and displayed like that!
    What a great idea!
    I love the cow prop - you are a very talented lady :-)

  6. Love the hand print....wish my kiddie were small to be able to do that. Isn't it amazing at how much time everything takes these days? Seems like there is never enough hours in a day. Love the cow scene prop...too cool. Hope the play goes well. Have a good day.


    P.S. The owl is sweet.

  7. Ohh ohhh oohhh! Your framed hands look so great up there! I love it! I think you have really inspired me to make one for my home!
    Hope things settle down soon and the craziness subsides!

  8. Tiff,

    Did you get your package from me?

    Carmen and the Primcats

  9. Milky White is fantastic! I hope everything goes well with your daughters play. Kayleigh is playing in the pit orchestra for a high school play this weekend. She's been crazy busy for the last three weeks practicing. She normally plays the clarinet but her music part included the sax, so she had to learn how to play the sax in 3 weeks! Our play is this weekend also.

  10. Oh, I forgot to say home much I enjoyed your pictures!!

  11. Cute decorations! I know crazy and busy life can get - I don't get to get around as much as I would like to on the blog world! Have a blessed weekend!!!

  12. Oh Tiffany, you have been busy. Love the children's hands. Milky White is impressive. You did good mom. Cute little kitty kat :) Enjoy your daughter's play.
