Ever feel like you’re just okay? Things aren’t great, but they’re not bad either? Just okay? This design is perfect for you if so. Living my okayest life! Let everyone know everything is okay. You are fine, everything is fine, it’s a okay!
Next up in my rainbow dandelion design is dream. Dare to dream. This design is perfect for the dreamer, lover, goal making person in your life. They’re not afraid to dream, and to make those dreams come true. Let everyone know you’re a dreamer!
Earlier, I posted my wish. design. Next up, inspire. Same design with the dandelion rainbow theme, but this is for the person who inspires. Those who make others dream, look up to them, and inspire them to be more. To be better than they are. Always inspire others!
I think it’s time to build my portfolio here, and though I say that over and over, I’m really going to try. Today’s product is my wish. design. This design has dandelions in a rainbow color scheme, with the word wish. above. It’s for the dreamer, the wisher, the person who sees nothing but wishes when they see a dandelion. To them, it’s not a weed, it’s a wish to be made.
Hello all, I’m terrible at this blogging thing. I need to rectify that. Anyways, life is insane, and we have been doing virtual school for almost a year now due to Covid! Our youngest is thriving, it is amazing to see. He started the year off below grade level for reading, but has jumped three levels and is now at grade level. It’s been hard, it’s been a lot of work, but we are doing it!
Enough about that though, this post is about design. I was approached by the local WeCare to create a flyer for their Bake Sale. I had fun with this one, as it’s not my normal type of design, and I decided to try some new stuff and have fun with it! I am excited I got to create it, and hope to be able to make more fun flyers soon. If you are in town, check it out and even donate!
With everything going on in the world and having the kids home 24/7 without a real break, my designs have taken a back seat. I am slowly getting back into designing though, and just made one that cracks me up! It’s sarcastic and funny, I just have to share it!
My newest design is: “I’ll be nicer when you leave!” You know you need this in your life or know someone who does! Check out the mug and t-shirt, don’t you just love this design? You can also get it on stickers, a tote bag, prints, and more!!
Yesterday I forgot to make a post, we were all just emotionally drained, and I zoned out last night when I would have normally posted. So, you will get two days in one post!
Yesterday, the kids weren’t as excited to get their work going. It took a bit of bribing to get them started, but they worked well once they did. Hayden got to do a video chat with his class both yesterday and today, which he loved. It was fun listen to the kids all talk together, they definitely miss school and one another!
For art class, I created Peyton’s Ninja costume. He LOVES it.
The boys also had music class and gym with dad yesterday. They’re enjoying the time home with us right now, who knows how long that will last though!
Tomorrow is Saturday, so we will take a break from “classes.” We only spend about 1-2 hours daily on them as it is, but they need a brain break too. Waiting to see what comes with Covid-19, and learning every day how to function in today’s world, which is something you are never prepared for. I do worry about getting the virus, and we have stayed home almost all week. We did go to the store today to grab Tylenol for the kids (I only had Ibuprofen at home for them), spent a little time with nana and papa, and then home. I’m glad we have such a big yard so they at least can get some fresh air and play, and aren’t stuck in our tiny home.
Hope everyone else is doing well during this time, and stay healthy!
Day 3 of the kids being home, and home schooling them. I feel like I forgot stuff today, but that’s okay, they’re still learning! Peyton did his math work without a problem, and told me tonight he’s doing it first thing in the morning so he can be done and then play all day!
Hayden got some new work from his teacher, so he will be a bit busier now. I like that she is posting links and videos, and giving them work. He needs a bit of a challenge! He is moving right along though, even though I can’t get him to write a journal about life during Covid-19. I’ll try again tomorrow!
Russ took the boys out today and they learned how to find items to start a fire. They also learned other nature skills they would need to survive outside, and found signs of a predator in our yard. They found the droppings with berries, and narrowed it down to a coyote or fox. So, our cat is in for a bit whether she likes it or not!
Tonight’s dinner was Broccoli Cheddar stuffed Chicken and Mac and Cheese. I really liked the chicken! You can find that recipe here: Broccoli Cheddar Stuffed Chicken ( I didn’t make the rice).
After dinner, mom did her art project for the boys. I made them ninja masks. Now Peyton wants the whole costume! They loved them! Here they are wearing them for game night! They’re also showing off their ninja stars that dad made them last night! Maybe tomorrow I’ll be motivated to make a costume, or find the right clothing in the closet for one!
Before bed tonight, we played Scrabble kids edition. Peyton beat us! After that was Would you Rather game where dad beat everyone! It was fun, and I love listening to Peyton as he learns reading. He is getting better and better every day!
Here goes the quarantine during Covid-19, Day 2. We did not have any crying or tantrums from Peyton, but Hayden had a little break down. We learned today that Math is now dad’s subject to work on with Hayden. He’s more patient, and Hayden listens more to him, so tag, dad’s it!
This is how Peyton’s day started. He joined me in bed and did his math homework. He got really excited when he realized he didn’t have to do a math sheet! This boy is good at math, but doesn’t like doing it!
Hayden did his work, and we found out mom is not the best teacher at Math for him. He gets really agitated with me fast. We made it through a worksheet after many arguments and tears. Then dad came out and helped with his math on the Chrome Book and we found out dad is the best math teacher when it comes to Hayden. So…dad gets to do the math work with him now!
Other than that, the boys have had a blanket fort in the living room, done lots of reading, and playing Roblox. They have had lots of “gym” time outside, and expended a lot of energy that way. I can say I am REALLY glad we have a huge yard for them to play in. It makes this quarantine not too terrible.
The end of the night had them curled up on the couch playing a game together. Hayden didn’t want me taking his picture, but too bad! Not long after this pic, Hayden was elbowing Peyton and they were arguing. I don’t know why they play Roblox together, it always ends that way!
