Happiness is...Nap Time

I love naps!  It's one of my favorite things.  I just wish I had more time to take naps.  I get so busy that I never have time to just stop what I'm doing and lay down to relax.  Remember when we were kids and didn't want to take naps?  What were we thinking??  I long for the days when naps were a required part of the day.  ;-) 

Naps are the perfect way to refuel.  I think that I am more productive when I have time to stop and rest every once in a while.  When I feel too tired I have more trouble concentrating and I am way less productive.  I would love to live in a place where everything just shuts down every day for a while so we could all rest.  How wonderful would that be???

Are you wondering what prompted this little ode to naps?  Probably not, but I'll tell you anyway.  :-)  Well, I have been thinking a lot about nap time a lot lately.  I made a nap mat cover and pillow case for a friend's daughter this weekend.  I think it turned out pretty good.  Hopefully it fits the mat.  I'm a little nervous about it.  I used the measurements she gave me and added the seam allowance and an extra three inches so it would be loose and easy to slide over the mat but it looks a little small.  We'll see!  Maybe I'll be making another nap mat cover very soon.  ;-)

I made a little Craft Academy drawstring bag to match the sheet set, too.  I thought it would be a nice little gift.  I was so flattered that she thought of me when she needed something sewn for her. 

Makes me happy!

Your nap mat turned out very cute. Now I want a nap and it is only 6:53 AM. Hope you have a great day.

Hotcakes-I have the same problem. It's such a bummer! I know I want to take a nap but I don't want to be up all night so I usually just skip it. Oh well. We can still think about how great it is, right? ;)
