Pillow Making

The whole entire month of June and into July, I have been making pillows. I seen this pillow pattern and had to make it. You can see the picture of the pillow I made in my last blog post below. When my grandaughter, saw the pillows that I was making she just had to have one. So, I found another pattern (here) that was more kid friendly and easier to make and made all 6 of the grandchildren a pillow plus one extra for a prize for my daughters baby shower. 

I made 2 pillows for the gift exchange and 2 for a friends birthday, plus 2 practice pillows that I am keeping and am partial to even though they are filled with flaws. Now these pictured. I'm all pillowed out now but have to make more. My daughters want some and I have to make one for my niece. She loves to be included in everything.

When I gave my 3 year old grandaughter her pillow this evening, she was happy, but wanted to know where her blanket is. She is under the impression that I am making her one. I don't know where she got that other than pillows go with blankets. She loves to look at my material and pick out her favorites and tell me to make this or that. And, of course, she expects me to make it right then and there with her help. She's a character.

Face Wash

Why have I not ever heard of this before? I have acne prone skin. Had it every since I was 9. I've tried every freaking acne face wash there is and nothing has ever worked. So, here I am in my 40s and finally my skin looks good. For three weeks now. I love it! No acne. No dryness. Smooth and healthy complexion. I really do look younger. So what is this? I don't know if I dare say. I mean why would I want others to look good too. lol. Oh, it is:

castor oil and olive oil
What!! Why would you put more oil on your face to help with oily skin, you say. I thought it was gross too. But since I have tried everything anyway, I gave it a shot. And I was sold on the first "washing".

I found this on a blog that I follow: Simple Organized Living. I think I found the blog on Pinterest. You find so many neat things on that site that you might otherwise never have found. On Simple Organized Living, the oil cleansing method was linked and referenced too.

My Little Girls Birthday!

Today is my oldest child's birthday. She is 26 years old. Not a little girl anymore. Although, she will always by a little girl to me. She has a lovely disposition and it amazes me how she turned out that way having the parents that she has. We are anything but lovely. lol. I am looking forward to watching her grow even more into the woman she will become. I love you, Patricia Marie O'Donnell, with all my heart!!

Thank You, Hubby!

As I was reading my posts in FB this morning, I ran across a link about dads and I was thankful that I have the husband that I have. The link was to a blog post, titled, Calling all Dads, from the blog, Dad Revolution. The post was about how the government census classifies dads and how society still thinks of dads as babysitters.

I am thankful that my husband has changed plenty of diapers for all four of our kids. He has made bottles, gave them baths, walked the floors with them. He cooks, does dishes, and picks the house up. He will do laundry also. He does have many faults, but, all in all, I choose to put up with them in order to experience all the goodness that I do get. Also, now that the kids are adults, they have a great relationship with their dad still.

Now we have 6 grandchildren and they all love him dearly. He gives them plenty of attention, kisses and hugs, and shares his coffee with them. Also, when I watch the kids for my daughters, I can count on him to help me take c…
