Check Out TreeSunCrafts #crafts

Check it out...one of my friends has a new Etsy shop called TreeSunCrafts. She also has an instagram page.

I ordered the 2020 ornaments. You know, to remember the year by:

When the boys move out on their own, I'll let them choose an ornament to remember their crazy year. Unfortunately I think we're in for more pandemic madness. 2020 was the start of it. 

The boys haven't left home, for quite some time. Just this weekend they ventured out to spend time with their cousins. Our boys haven't been out, since November. My nephews haven't been out, since May. 

All the kids have the option to go to school. Studies have show that they do better in the classroom. Sometimes I wonder if Isaak should be in school. He struggles with getting his work done. On the flip side the quiet at home helps, with focus. We were getting emails left and right about how this kid test positive, and that kid tested positive at their schools. It was making Mica nervous. Mica opted to stay home, Isaak felt the same way. 2020 was a crazy year, for sure. 

Now we have ornaments to remember the craziness. 

Since Theresa knows me, she put extra things in with my package. Who ever knew many years ago that some of my best friends are remote friends. Those friendships started before 2020.  I had some really nice surprises! 

My favorite...the wooden gecko spoon! Isaak has the responsibility of making scrambled eggs, and picks this gecko spoon to use every time.

She threw in two wooden coasters. I actually use them for a different purpose than coasters. One holds my keys, while the other I use for pins, needles and thread. 


She added this wooden Apel's Kitchen sign. I put in our window, but photographed it on a placemat. I kept getting odd lighting by the window. 



Lastly she put these bookmarks. I set them aside to give to Mica at Easter. He's the big reader in the family. I like that they aren't super girly.

Awe, thanks for the shout out! I'm glad you like the goodies. I use those coasters for other things too. I like the groove in them. They are good for holding small things. I tried to design the bookmarks with the boys in mind, but goodness most book designs are super girly. So, I just used several different elements from separate designs and hoped for the best LOL

Allison had the option of going back to school, but I left her home this year. She does better with in person learning, but the risk just wasn't worth it to send her to school. They are terrible about keeping the kids apart and I just didn't feel comfortable having her there daily. She did start a fast food job in November. Thankfully, the interior isn't open, just drive through only, so she's not in contact with many people. They are very serious about covid precautions too. She had a tummy ache last Sunday, but they made her take 10 days off anyway just to be safe (It wasn't Covid. I'm sure it was the start of her monthly cycle giving her issues). I will be sending her back to school this fall for her senior year. Hopefully, most of us will have had the opportunity to be vaccinated by then!
