Baby Fun!

I had planned on trying for better pictures, but this is as good as it gets this weekend. The pants are the basic newborn baby pant from Made by Rae and the top is my design.

It's hard to see, but the closures at the shoulder seams are snaps.  On Friday, I received my order from The Snap Source.  I had been thinking of trying this snap setter for a while, and finally ordered the snap setter and various snaps.  Oh my goodness!  Easy and quick with great results every time.  I put the snaps in 6 bibs that I had made & they all turned out perfectly.

And now for the back view with the cute little pockets:

Linking with sites below. Go check them out for lots of wonderful inspiration!

Humility in the Midst of Gloating?

There are so many great blogs with wonderful ideas.  I honestly am humbled that my little blog has recently received some awards from some new followers.  Before continuing on with the requirements, I need to take some time, because:
  1. My day job is crazy right now.  (And that's what I should be working on right now.)
  2. I need to think of 7, yes seven!, things to share about myself.  (I really don't know what to include right now.  Three things maybe, but seven?!  Honestly, I'm not that exciting!)
  3. Sewing also needs to be done, with two baby showers coming up.  (But, that is a fun distraction in the midst of insanity daily life.)
  4. The beings in this household need attention.

I just LOVE this face!

Ruffled Butt

I think it needs one more ruffle on the bottom.  What do you think?

Easy Valentine's Activity

My 3rd graders made these last year for their parents.  They just pressed their painted palms onto regular copy paper.

This year, we have some fancy-schmancy paper that a parent donated, so they should turn out even cuter!

It's a Girl!

Amy & Rich are having a girl! 

Back in November my sister Susie announced that she was going to be a grandma.  She had a feeling, for whatever that's worth, that it would be a girl.  I made a bib.  

And then another...

  ...for this new little midwest girl.

Blog Following Swap

Or: How To Find Some Great New Blogs and Ideas

And...maybe gain some new followers in the process!

As I was reading some of the blogs that I regularly read, I happened to find Homemaker on a Dime.  Check out her linky party!  Be forewarned:  You'll want to check out all of the partiers' blogs.


One of the blogs that I followed from this party is Joy, Junk and Juxtaposition.  The name of Karen's blog sucked me right in, and I love the picture in her header.  I'm hoping that her posts on lamps will give me some much needed motivation to finish a lamp that I started to tear apart last summer.
