Hey Em remember these??  From like two years ago??  Well, I needed something to do… The kids {all 5} went back to school after being home for two weeks, and I was going crazy here… The dog and I both miss them terribly… This happens to me after every break.  I honestly LOVE them being here and I feel lonely without them.  I of course could be doing some needed cleaning, but I feel like that is what I spent the entire two weeks they were home doing… Do you know I ran the dishwasher about 3 times a day!  I found this plastic bag up on the top shelf of my pantry and knew it would be the perfect project to finish… The sewing was done, all I needed to do was paint and assemble…

ahhh don’t those colors make you happy?? 

Finally finished…

Here it is with an acorn tag…
