Update and a Pinned Pretty

Posted by on Apr 29, 2013 in Uncategorized | 8 comments

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!!  Hope you all are enjoying some beautiful Spring weather!!   It was gorgeous here this weekend!  Of course, I am still on bed rest, but we did open the windows to let some fresh air and sunshine in!  Sunshine is always good for the soul! A quick update:  Continued bed rest, and now we are going into the doctor’s office 3x a week, and just going day by day.  I’ve always had healthy pregnancies- so, I am a little stressed out about the complications, but I know we are going to be okay.  My preeclampsia symptoms are not getting worse but they are not getting better.  My platelet count has gone up, thankfully.   However, during my latest non-stress-test baby was not as reactive as doctor would have liked.  So, like I said we...

Bed Rest

Hi everyone and happy Monday!! Today is going to be a short post- but I wanted to give you a baby update. Here I am at 34 weeks I am really sticking out there! I had a good week last week, got some crafting in and some shopping in. Here’s a onesie I made- I know… I can’t stop! Sooo… Good week but then, on Wednesday I started having a lot of contractions, not let’s have a baby contractions, but contractions that lasted all night and into Thursday afternoon. So, I called my dr. to see what he had to say and he thought I should go to the hospital to gets monitored. So I took the kids and met Mr. Pink there, thinking it would be a quick check. Nope. They ran tests, listened to baby- and kept...

You’re Awesome

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!! Today I have a simple card that I actually love!  I am thinking I am going to make several of these for “thank you” cards.  What do you think?   I used a piece of 8.5 x 11 white card stock cut at 4 inches and folded over.  I added a cheap little paper doily–you know how much I love doilies, because they bring so much “pretty” to a project for such a tiny investment. I used chevron yellow paper from DCWV’s Sunday Afternoon stack….love. this. stack.  Some dark pink washi striped tape, coordinating button and solid twine.  The heart is also from the DCWV stack punched with my Stampin’ Up heart to heart punch.  (this is probably my favorite punch in my whole collection…but, unfortunately they don’t make it any more) A couple...

Teacher Gift: Pencil Box

Posted by on Apr 17, 2013 in 3d, Cameo, Crafting, Gift ideas, Uncategorized | 4 comments

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday!  The end of the school year is getting closer, and teacher appreciation is right around the corner–along with a new Pink by Design stamp release—so, I have a gift for a teacher using one of the new stamp sets due for the next release!   The pencil box is a shape from the Silhouette Store by Jennifer Wambach – I just love how cute this box turned out!  Because of the snow days we kept using this year- I won’t be able to send this in to the teachers til June now.  We were supposed to get out in May…but, I can’t complain because those snow days were so nice when we had them! You can fill this pencil shaped box with all sorts of things—I had some Hershey Hugs laying in my craft room from...
