swallows in the sky {interrupted}

Wow. I certainly didn’t mean to disappear from this blog for the whole week. Life has just been pleasantly full.

The swallow mobile for Elizabeth’s room is now finished, but still hanging in front of a family room window, getting lots of attention from the wind. It’s been hanging with a single swallow on it for over two weeks so it feels good to have it done.

***This is now the fourth time today that I’ve tried to sit down at my desk to write, but each time I’m interrupted. Case and point, I’m being interrupted right now by a frustrated five year-old who’s trying to make a mobile of her own. She has me tracing an intricate drawing of a horse and cutting it out for her mobile. And she keeps "messing up the coloring"….which means more intricate tracing and cutting for me.  Ahhhh…but we press on.

Hope you all have a pleasantly full weekend as well. I’ll be back in the new week with more. Tomorrow my mom and I are heading to Baltimore for pre-birthday lunch and shopping. Can’t wait.

  1. Beautiful mobile! I am happy to hear that I am not the only one having difficulty finding time to write (and photograph, and sleep, and, and, and…) with a five year old and a two year old demanding my attention:) Oh but what would we ever do with our time if we weren’t so busy?:)

  2. sweet molly. i’m putting one of those on my list. is it wrong that i hate to do crafts with sam? it always turns into whining somehow… maybe that’s just three?

  3. i love the mobile – and i’m curious to know what material you used for the swallows? i’m also wondering where you ate your birthday lunch!

  4. I love, love, love that mobile!!!!!!!!!! How did you make it? Please share with us. The whole interrupting thing, I have that here at work, and I have a cube so no door to shut or anything so I understand completely!
