Another Layout!

Here's the layout I said I was going to do of Pickle. I am so happy with how my layouts are turning out lately, especially these last two. I think I'm getting back into my groove. Thank goodness!

RIght now I'm working on some Halloween embellishments for my Etsy shop. They're looking pretty cool, too. I should have those up in the next couple days.

Hey, I scrapped again.

My comment at the end of my last post about my "big ol' belly" inspired me to do this layout. I just love how it turned out. I'm all about happy, colorful, busy layouts! It's my new favorite.

I am going to scrap more today. I took a super cute photo of Pickle a couple days ago that needs to be on a layout. Have a great day!

Latest Projects

The other day, I randomly decided that I wanted to embroider something. I don't know why I never thought of doing it sooner, seeing as I sew on every papercrafting and scrapbooking project I do. I took Elsie's online class back at the enf of last year, so I pulled out the super cute embroidery patterns she provided, and made this to go over the changing table in the nursery:

The frame and, of course, the underwear are from Elsie, and I just traced a computer font for "change me". I still need to get an oval hoop of cute frame to put it in.

I've also FINALLY added something to my poor, negelected Etsy shop. Nine new things to be exact. These are my absolute favorite:

I also found out a couple days ago that two of my felt brooches are going to be in the February/March issue of Simply Handmade! I can't wait to see them.

On the baby front, all is well. I'm 37 weeks now, and lugging my big ol' belly around. I have the hospital suitcase packed already, just in case, and Chad is installing the carrier bases in the trucks this weekend. I feel pretty decent, but there are all those end-of pregnancy aches and pains to deal with. It's getting so close, we're pretty excited!

And now, since my body is cooperating and letting me be comfortable in this chair for a while, I am going to do some scrapping!

36 Weeks

Just had my last ultrasound this morning, and look what we saw:

That's our baby! I haven't had an ultrasound since 20 weeks when we found out he was a boy, and they couldn't really get us a clear picture of anything that looked like a baby..other than the "necessary" stuff. You can see his nose, puckered lips, chin, and little hands balled up. It's so exciting! And he's definitely a boy...they showed up some very clear proof of that.

I'm feeling pretty good in general, but I'm getting uncomfortable, especially at night. No complaints,'s all worth it. I can't believe he's almost here!
