Enjoy Yourself! (or just be miserable)

As a stay-at-home mom, there are a lot of UN-enjoyable things you must do everyday. Toilets, for one. Mopping, for another. But I have found that giving myself a reward for doing these things really helps.
I will give myself a list of things I have to do before I:
-get on the computer.
-watch Good Things Utah.

But then I go and enjoy myself.
Here are some things I did last week to "reward" myself for .... folding the light colored load of laundry, ... :

I made hair bows with Elyse.

Made Katia a Valentine skirt.

Made a pillow case for Jayden.
Went to sew at DSIN's and continued making the Potato Heads. (here is a link if you want to make your own.)
Worked on a quilt with Elyse.

So, what do you like to do after you have swept the floor for the bajillionth time? Pin It

I'm a Jack fan too ;)

I LOVE the V-day skirt...sometime I'll have to tell you about the time that I tried to make my own V-day skirt the night before. I pinned two hearts I'd cut out of fabric onto an old purple skirt. It looked cute! But MY MOM, wouldn't allow me to go to school in it! Now if only I had a skirt like this, I'd be all set! Great job! :) And thanks for your kind words today! :)
