pictures of our late happenings

The first photo is with me, Aunt Amy, and Bella, who is wearing the cutest hat on earth, made by my mom. Find hats as cute as this at The second photo is me and Asher, the third is of us going Christmas tree shopping!! And the last one is Bella's first birthday party. I was in denial for about 2 weeks!! I can't even believe she's a year already!
And yes, you all guessed what my insanely clever picture from a few posts ago was!!! I am about 6 weeks along with baby #4!!  Pray for a good, healthy, non-morning-sickness pregnancy for me and grace for my kiddos as they deal with a moody mommy. :-)

Bless you guys!

5 things I love Friday!

1.  Watching the IHOP webstream.  Many days I forget that it's there and when I remember, it is like a kiss from God!

2.  Watching episodes of Monk, the Office and Gilmore Girls on hulu. The only 3 shows I could watch over and over again and laugh every time at all the same jokes. (ok, the office can be off color, but when it's not, it is flippin hilarious!)

3. Selling things in my shop (hint hint.)

4. A good book.  I just finished the most informative book about autism that I've read to date!

5. the Bible, since we're talking about books. :-) I just started reading through it again.  Just. I'm on chapter 2 in Genesis. Love it!

Bonus photos!: 2 of my newest creations in my shop

  dont you just love the elephant on that blanket?!

i absolutely love the retro flowers on this diapers/wipes travel case. Tempted to keep this one for myself!

New Stuffs I makes.

Attention friends! You have another 3 hours to enter the giveaway here and then at 6, I will draw a winner!!

I started making a new kind of item: I go thrift shopping and fine nice, cute kids clothes. Then, I bring them home, wash them, and the sew on cute little animals or shapes that make it even CUTER!  Then, I post them in my shop. :-) Here are a few examples of my latest obsesison! I tell ya, it feels dang good to make old things new again.  And did I mention that they're CUTE!

These are just a few of the other things I've made lately. When motivation hits, I run a marathon with it till I burn out. Probably not the best way to do it, but it gets'er done!

Oh yeah, one more thing....Do you know what this is?!
