Just a little...


Wow! I was hoping baby wouldn't cramp my style too much! And really she hasn't. She hasn't cut into crafting or photography time...just into blogging time. She's so worth the sacrifices! ;)

edit: thanks to everyone for the congratulations and lovely comments!

3 Little Witches

3 little witches

I have this hat on my inspiration list, and even though I would still like to make one like it some day (soon?)I was feeling a little lazy and wanted to craft just for the sake of crafting. Do you ever do that? Really I don't know what I will do with these, except leave them on my door...maybe even take the embellishments off after Halloween and let my kids have at them with glue and markers??? I'm even considering doing them in fabric with all kinds of sewn on halloween goodness!

For now though, they are sittin' pretty and giving me inspiration every time I pass the door.

Over on flickr I have been making mosaics of all my favorite crafty pics that inspire me to try some new techniques or projects. You can see the set here. The sweatshirt above left, is my favorite cozy jacket (good for wearing around the house i winter, maybe out on some errands with a t and jeans) but it was getting a little ragged...and stained. So Inspired by the sweatshirt on the right, I cut up some trendy apple/pear material and appliqued over all spots, logos, and worn areas...even added some ribbon to the sleeves.

Here are some other projects you've see and the originals that inspired them (click on the picture to get links to the originals

Just to let you know

False labor may or may not be starting again as I have had 3 contractions in the last 30 minutes.

Oh and I'm craving caramel, I can't login to my bloglines account, one of my sweet sisters took me out to Pei Wei's and I actually ordered something I like!, everyone is asleep thanks to the drama from last night, my car won't start, and I may not have caramel, but I do have pumpkin cookies ;)

I'll keep you posted

Update on baby yet

Last night I started having contractions 10 minutes apart for over 3 hours. I called the midwife on call and she said to go take a warm bath to see if they would stop...well I didn't want to do that (get wet! have to get out of a bath! or stop labor! LOL!) So instead I called everybody and put them on notice and made sure all bags were ready to go, got everyone in bed, including hubs and me, had contractions in bed for the next hour and fell asleep. I didn't sleep well at all, my joints are achy, but my contratcions subsided! UGH! I don't mind waiting the 2 more weeks I have left, but I do mind having "false" labor. (I'm not a big believer in false labor...though I'm sure random braxton hicks get mistaken for labor...this was not braxton hicks...I had to seriously focus through a couple of them and knew I wasn't REALLY ready to go yet because they weren't getting consistently stronger or closer together.)

So maybe I'll be around for a nother 2-4 weeks ;)
