Helpful kids

My DD's were trying to surprise me this afternoon by being helpful - I wish they'd stop! First my older DD "helped" me by weeding the garden - she walked into the house carrying a tubular (my Echinacia) asking me if it was a carrot - if it was it didn't look like we could eat it yet - or a weed..... AHHHH!!!!! She planted it again but I don't know if it will make it or not. Then my younger DD "helped" me by refilling the bird feeders - there was birdseed spread throughout the garage - and the birdseed container is right by the garage door! I still don't know how the birdseed got spread everywhere. After that I told her she could help me by sweeping it all up - she didn't think that was as much fun. I know they were trying but couldn't they do something less trying for me????

I made this card last night and - though it turned out fine - it wasn't anything like the card I was aiming for - that ever happen to you?

I did want to watercolor the picture using the watercolor crayons but the colors and the layout weren't at all what I envisioned. On top of that I was thinking I would use it for a stamp camp and then realized that I used the last of those hodgepodge labels (will have to order a new box) and only have 2 more paperclips so not enough of those either. Oh well - it's a pretty enough card and I am sure I will find a use for it but it's back to the drawing board - or should I say stamping desk!

lol I don't have better self control when it comes to chocolate. I just knew that everyone getting their swap without the chocolate wouldn't look good on my part. Love your cards!!
