It's been a while

Hello fellow followers! It's been a while and for those of you who don't know...I have just had my 3rd child. Hailey is 4 months today! Sophia 5yrs old and Juliet 20 months have done such a wonderful job being a big sister to her!

I now am not only into paper crafts but have been getting to know my sewing machine. I haven't made anything too fancy but I've been making over-sized receiving blankets and burp cloths. I will do my best to share some of my projects with you and any funnies that happen from day to day here! Trust me they happen all the time!

Baby Announcement Box

Here's the box that the baby annoucements are going to be delivered in.

I shared this project for the stamp and share earlier this month.

Here are the measurements:

Base: 9 3/4 x 8 1/4

Score at 1 1/2" on each side

Lid: 8 7/8 x 7 3/8

Score at 1" on each side

Here's a link to the original post that I found: Midnight Scramper

Baby Announcement

My dear neighbor just had her baby. I had offered to make her announcements. I found this design online, I wish that I could remember who's it was. If you've seen this design before please let me know so that I could give credit to her great work.

Here are the measurements:
Choc Chip: 3 1/4 x 5
2nd piece: 2 1/8 x 2 1/4
Barely Banana: 2 1/2 x 4 3/4
Bashful Blue: 2 x 2 1/8
More Mustard: 4 3/4 x 10
Score: 2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2,

**TIP** When scoring I scored at 2 1/2 then folded the paper and then lined where I just scored and then scored again at 2 1/2, then one more time.

Here's the finished project. I hope you like it. I will post more pictures once I've finished decorating the inside.

Sophia broke her ankle

How Sophia broke her ankle. We were taking pictures last Thursday with some of our dearest friends who are moving to MO. Sophia and 2 of her other cousins had ran away from us to go and play. When we were calling them back for more pictures Sophia fell. She cried of course but we thought it was because she knew that she was being defiant (not really hurt). She asked to be carried the rest of the day. The next day if she wanted to get anywhere fast she crawled. Her pedi doctor was closed for fiesta. By the afternoon she was walking fine and hadn't even complained about it. On Sunday I noticed that she was favoring her other leg more and thought I need to take her in. Mon & Tues her doc was only open half day and was booked already. Side Note: his daughter is getting married and his office is going to be closed for the rest of the week. So I took her to Texas Med Clinic and that's when we found out that she broke her ankle. Such a sad story for such a sweet girl. Who would have thought a normal fall at a park could do so much harm. Anyway Sophia is doing fine and Mommy & Daddy are waiting on her hand and foot.

Here are a few pictures.

I'm sure our little half pint will be back on her feet real soon. We'll keep you updated.

Quiet Playtime

You know as a parent you want to encourage your child to play on their own. But when they are too quite you begin to wonder. Well this afternoon Sophia was awfully quite, here's what she was up to...

putting on chapstick! She wanted to make sure that she didn't miss her lips, so she got her cheeks too. ; ) Gotta love kids!

Top Note Purse

I have been on Spring Break this past week and was very lucky to have had a class. This is the project that we worked on. I got the idea from Inking Idaho. We made 3 3x3 cards with envelopes and a cute purse to put the cards in. The class was $15. I hope you like the project.
