Spring is on the way

Thinking of attempting this project today with the girls.

I found the idea here...

Mine probably won't look as cute, or as nicely painted, and I do plan to use cookie cutters. But the girls will get to play with dough and we will make something constructive out of it. First I have to make a trip to the store and I dread that, so we'll see. Before that I MUST finish the laundry.
Does anyone else have a hard time starting a project when the rest of the house is a mess? Or if the dishes/laundry are undone? I feel like I have to get all of that done first before I begin something big and then it doesn't happen!

They are really cute! I hope you post a picture when you are done.

I have the same problem, projects that need to be completed but then I feel that I fall behind on the housework.

I need to get some sewing done today and want to get some yard work tomorrow...but still have all the regular stuff that needs to be done.

I have this routine now that everything must be done before any new and fun projects start. I also have to finish homeschooling for the day so it doesn't slip past without me finishing up everything. Does that make sense?
Anyway..I usually do fun, crafty stuff in the afternoon after everything else is completed and dinner is started. I have time to relax and enjoy what I'm doing.
Good luck with your project!

I am the same way. I even try to make myself do all of my morning routine before I sit down to the computer. It doesn't always happen that way though.
