Being Crafty

I have been doing a lot of crafts lately to make the time pass more quickly. I decided to buy a sewing machine. I have never used a sewing machine. I really hope it is not to difficult to figure out. It will hopefully be delivered tomorrow.
My craft of the day yesterday was making homemade sidewalk chalk. It was super easy! All you need is plaster of paris (if you don't have any on hand you can make it homemade), water, food coloring, duct tape, and cardboard toilet paper roll holders. It takes a couple days to firm up so we haven't been able to use it yet but I can't wait for my son to try it out. I think he will love it.
Good news! I get to see my husband again tomorrow! Only for the day he has to go back to base later that afternoon but it's better than nothing! I'm going to make us a nice lunch. A salad, honey bourbon chicken in the crock pot, fried rice and for dessert peanut butter fudge. It seems easy enough. If they are a hit I will post the recipes on AWR's recipe website.
I'm also thinking of making a craft blog. I'll think on it a little more before I decide. My husband is going to be doing a blog. I will be posting the link to that on the main site. I think it will be a good idea to have a soldier blog. It might be helpful for other wives knowing what their husbands are experiencing. i know not all men like to talk about their experience in the Army.
