“Surprise…there’s a Baby Shower”

Posted by on Aug 29, 2013 in Cameo, Crafting, Gift ideas, Uncategorized | 6 comments

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!  Yesterday was an early out for the kiddos- so I took them to the pool to beat this hot week.  The water felt great!  Here’s Alexis peeking at me, and the only picture I got of the swimming action, since I couldn’t have my camera when I was in with Grayson & Jaxen. Then last night, when Mr. Pink got home and things settled down (when the kids went to bed and dishes got done) he said, “Oh, hey…there’s a baby shower for  [insert important work related name here] tomorrow night.” Umm…there is?  Apparently, he forgot to tell me.  But, you know as well as I do I wasn’t going to be able to show up at a baby shower without something I made!  Especially, because this same woman saw the awesome football blanket...

Keep Calm

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday!  Hope everyone is having a great week!  We are having a heat wave here in Iowa, and it’s been almost unbearable to be outside too long.  I am thankful for air conditioning at home & at the kids’ school.  Not every school has air conditioning around here, so kids have been getting out early, or teachers have resorted to popsicles as well as ice cubes & water during class. Speaking of school I wanted to make some tumblers for my daughter’s teacher and her other 3rd grade teaching team members.  So, I made these KEEP CALM tumblers, quick and they LOVED them.  Now to come up with something cute for my little 1st grader’s teacher!   I really love the purple tumbler for some reason-and I am typically not a purple girl.  You guys...

Happy Friday!

Yay! It’s Friday!! It’s been a long week with our new schedule of getting the kids to school, and working out at 9:00 am and taking Grayson swimming after that. This is the first week he’s been in a pool and he LOVES it!  He coos and splashes and I sing to him.  The water is heated a little bit, so there isn’t a huge chill for him when we get in, which is nice for both of us!  We usually stay in for a half an hour, and I just let him splash as I float him along close to me.   (His face in this pic doesn’t look like he is enjoying it as much as he is!) So, everyone has had a pretty good week and I even made into my (messy) craft room a couple...
