Around here

Does anyone else feel like August is just flying by?! It’s almost over already, where did it go?

The past few weeks here have been busy, but not with much creative stuff. I built a puzzle, doodled a little, hubby got back from 5 weeks of training, we celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary, hubby got sick and I took care of him, then I got what he had and he has been taking care of me. Even before getting sick tho, my creativity was MIA. Today I’m feeling human but I think playing more legos Indiana Jones 2 will be about all I accomplish today 🙂

This is the doodle I have been working on little by little for a few weeks. The notebook I was working in was open all the time, and I would add some too it here and there.

And this is the puzzle I built. It was too big to fit on the table so I built it on the floor. Boy did my butt hurt after the first day! The main part of the puzzle took about 2 days, maybe 3. The sky tho, that took like a week in itself to finish! I’m not even kidding. The lighting we have in the living room is not great for puzzle building, and the sky pieces all seemed to be the same color! It was rough, there may have been unkind words directed at the puzzle sometimes, but we worked it out in the end 😛

I had a lot of “help”, not only while building the puzzle but also when trying to take pictures of it finished….

Waffles didn’t think it was very fair that the cats could walk on the puzzle and she couldn’t.

Thanks so much for stopping by, take care!!


About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!

    How funny…just yesterday I was at my in-laws house and they were working on a Ravensburger puzzle. I flipped through the small insert, that came with the puzzle, which had a collection of available puzzles from Ravensburger. And it just so happens that the one puzzle that really stood out to me is precisely the one I see you built here. I guess great minds think alike? 😉

  2. Your doodle is fantastic!

  3. Love the doodling! I am doodle obsessed right now.
