Hi everyone and Happy Friday! It’s been a fun week here on the blog this past week–thank you all for your sweet well wishes and congratulations with the announcement of our pregnancy!  We are so very excited- and I will be sure to keep you updated!

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!! Last week, the kids convinced me to put up our Christmas tree before we left for our 5 day Thanksgiving celebration.  After we go back, I’ve slowly started to pull more Christmas decorations out for the rest of the house.  So, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here, minus the snow of course.  We haven’t seen any of that yet! How about you? Is your home beginning to look a lot like Christmas? While we were celebrating Thanksgiving my mom and sister asked me to help make them a tree skirt, similar to the one I made last year, and that was published in this month’s Simply Handmade magazine. So, we went to Joann’s to pick out fabric while it was still on a great sale from Black Friday weekend!...

Do you remember when I made these pretty frames…and I didn’t tell you what I needed them for….  Then….remember when I made this card?  Some of you thought…I was trying to make an announcement…..But, I wasn’t….   Well….here are the frames and an announcement It’s true, #3 is on the way, and we couldn’t be more excited! We used the picture above to announce to our friends and family. We have been wanting a baby for a couple of years now, but couldn’t decide if it was the right time— The kids have also been asking us for years to have another sibling…and so we decided that it was, ‘now or never.’ My...

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! Today I want to stress how important it is not to forget the small businesses out there during the holiday season. I am a small business owner, so I know how every sale counts! It’s easy for the little guys to get lost in the shuffle among the ‘big boy’ ads and sales. I am not saying I won’t be making any purchases with the big boys, but- I am going to try to keep most of my shopping at small businesses. I would rather see my dollars helping a families put Christmas dinner under the table, a mom to put gifts under the tree for her babies and a dad to put a special gift under the tree for his wife- or in this economic time…maybe it’ll just help with keeping the heat...
