Well I did it...

I finally did some crafting!! Thank goodness, I was starting to go a little stir crazy! I made a frame tray using Lemon Tree Creations tutorial which is such a super cute idea, see here. I didn't do it exactly the same, for the simple fact that I am impatient and didn't have all the materials on hand...Anyways here is my version with pictures as I went, well except for one step, I forgot to show a pic of painting the frame...oh well :)

Not too shabby, not as good as LTC, but close enough for me...

Here's a new wreath I threw together for our front door, its kind of plain, but I like it bc we have four birdies in our family now...

And two things that make me SUPER DUPER in LOVE...

Whew...i'm tired...nite nite

Things a brewin...

Hello Hello! During my daily craft blog searches I found two very cute craft ideas that i SO want to try! Here's the first one from Get Your Craft On...check it out...NOW...ok are you back?!? Isnt that a cute simple idea! And the other project is from Lemon Tree Creations...again, check it out NOW....k, my turn....SO CUTE, right?!?! It would make a great mothers day gift. I know what you are thinking, those are easy!! and should only take a day, maybe two max.....phsisshh, ya right...not in this household. Between taking care of a newborn, a toddler, a husband, two dogs and a beyond messy house, not to mention a bday party for the toddler......these cutie patooties will have to wait....insert pouty face here....

Seriously, my goal is to have them done by the middle of may, i'll post pics

Pitiful Pearl

That pretty much sums up my blogging abilities. I have done a few crafts here and there, I even took pictures but haven't uploaded anything yet...my blog is...well...pititful! I'm 37 wks pregnant with baby #2 and I'm kind of freaking out. Not in a bad way, just really wanting to be prepared, if possible. Anyways, its not much of an excuse, but it will work for now. Hopefully in the next weeks I will be more active with the blog!

Late Night Crafting

Well since baby girl and I were sick on the couch all day today, I had A LOT of time to browse all the wonderful craft blogs. This really got me in the mood to make something...anything! So I decided to make a little bag for my little one. I used a combination of two tutorials...

So here's how it turned out...


here's a close up of the flower on the strap...it was actually an afterthought, I messed up the strap, so a little snip, a little sew and.....


I hope baby girl likes it...we'll find out tomorrow

Good Nite!

Well I didn't believe the weather channel yesterday, but I'm SO glad I was wrong. Snow is awesome, especially in TX....we hardly ever see snow! Below are a few pics of me and the kiddie playin in the snow....

As far as crafts, for some reason I am ready to get into the Easter spirit. It's one of my favorite holidays and I have some craft ideas a brewin'...

Happy Snow Day!!

Diapers & Wipee Case

Well I hate to say this, but I lied! I was going to make a d&w case for my SIL, but I didn't have enough girlie material...so I made one for myself! :) I used the tutorial from Make it and Love it, and this is how it turned out.

Not too bad. Hopefully I will get some more materials this weekend and make a girlie d&w case.

OH! And I read a cartoon today that helps describe my current pregnant state of mind...

"I can't sleep, breathe or walk...how am I suppose to have the energy to glow!" I think that says it all. Today marks my 34th week....6 more weeks to go.
