Still waiting...

It has been a while since I've blogged, but things have been very busy for us trying to prepare for our second child. I"m due Feb 10th and I'm so ready to have this baby. This pregnancy has been a lot harder on me mentally and physically. On a positive note we finally have a name for our baby, which seemed so much harder to choose this time around. I also did a very big shop update, so please stop by and check out the new items I've posted. Hopefully in my next blog entry I'll be introducing our new little guy :)

My husband and I watched this movie over the weekend and loved it. It was a very touching story with a strong message about how this earth could eventually end up if we don't take care of it now. I wouldn't recommend it for small kids, since there isn't a lot of dialogue and its a bit slow in the beginning. I feel like watching it again right now...
Birdee Pillow

So I had a little time on my hands a few months ago and I started working on this little bird design. At first I had planned to make this into something I could hang up on my wall, but once I was finished with it, I just put it away and forgot about it for a while. Well a couple weeks ago I was cleaning out my craft area and doing some reorganizing and found the design I had worked on decided to turn it into a pillow. This is the first pillow I've ever made and I"m very happy with the end result. I plan to make a pillow with an owl on it very soon. I did put this pillow up in my shop...since I'm not sure where to put it in my own home.

Sunnee Sol or Lazee Daisee

The other night I decided to make something new. Its a little chew toy for a baby. The center is made out fleece and I used some left over Amy Butler fabric scraps to make the petals. I also attached a loop so that moms can clip it on to something so the baby can't throw it somewhere. My husband said it looked like the sun and thought it was very pretty and a great toy for a little one. I decided to name it Sunnee Sol, but I might change it to Lazee Daisee.

Oh the mind of a pregnant woman...always undecided.

Getting stuff done

I have a craft show coming up in December and I've been cutting, sewing, swearing, stuffing, and having some extreme hot flashes trying to get my pieces done. Last night I cut out a ton of my owls and I can't wait to bring them to life. Hopefully I'll have a shop update very soon before the holidays. Until then enjoy a sneak peek of what is to come.

The Bumblebee Costume

A friend of ours was so kind to lend us a bumblebee costume for our son to wear for Halloween. At first he didn't like it and then he had a change of heart. He looks so cute.
