I'm Baaaaack...!



Did you miss me? I'm loving mommyhood and kissing baby chubba cheeks all day everyday :)




I've been meaning to show you some of the handmade goodies we received as gifts for Clayton's nursery...
My sweet friend, Tricia, is also an Art Teacher-turned Stay-at-home-Mommy. A gal after my own heart, she also gets a little giddy when they start putting out school supplies at Target... Isn't this a cute idea to use crayons? I love shadow boxes. Tricia is so full of cute ideas.
These little guys are just a few of the sweeties my brother's girlfriend, Crysta, crocheted for my boys. The lion is actually a rattle and he has the cutest little tail on his back end. (And, yes, I did have to dust the rocker before I could snap a picture...it's the life of having a newborn)

And here's a little something else I've been meaning to share. I was published for my very first time :) This is the 2011 Sewing Calendar by Accord Publishing. It folds out and is F-U-L-L of cute sewing projects that take a few hours or less to complete. My feature is the summer roadtrip pillow tutorial in my sidebar -->


The cool news, is that I'm going to give one of these calendars away on Monday, so come back and enter, okay? Have a great weekend! I'm off to squish some more kissable cheeks.
