Finished Moriah’s 1st year scrapbook and bought an album for Bruiser =)  I also designed Bruiser’s birth announcement and I’m so excited.  Now for the work of assembling it.

The last page I’m just not sure what I’m going to do with it.  I have a great breastfeeding picture that I totally love so I may do something with that.  Technically, it’s not the very last page to do.  The last page we want to do is for each of us to write a personal note to Moriah, which times time and quietness to work on something like that, lol.


Finished one more page of Moriah’s 1st year scrapbook August 27, 2008

Moriah’s 1st year scrapbook August 26, 2008

I’m finally almost done with it and have a scrapbook mania planned for this Saturday.  I’d like to have most of it done though before Saturday since I’d like to start working on Bruiser’s announcements and thank you cards while at Archivers.  Today I ordered a whole bunch of pictures since I had to order some pictures anyways for the family and I can’t wait to pick them up and hopefully work on a couple pages during nap time today.  At least cropping the pictures so they are ready for placement on Saturday.  I’m so excited for Saturday.  I love scrapbook mania at Archiver’s I can usually get 4 pages done in a night and just love the atmosphere and the inspiration of the night.


another one done today August 24, 2008

We were in the car a long time today so I brought my knitting and made another diaper wrap. This time in a really pretty pumpkin orange for my fall baby. I just need to put on buttons and weave in the ends and it will be finished. =)

I want to attempt some longies but I need to do some shopping before I can start them so I have to wait until September when I have some money in my monthly spending budget. 😉

I think this week I will do the work of putting the buttons on all the diapers and weaving in the ends so that I can take some fun pictures of them. 🙂

I finished the diaper wrap last night and didn’t really do anything today because I’ve been trying to get the bedrooms ready for Bruiser’s arrival.  I’m trying to get the heavy duty stuff done around here just in case I end up on bedrest again like I did with Moriah.  So, all the clothes are washed and put in the dresser, the bassinet is in our bedroom and now we’re making room to put a mattress in our bedroom for Moriah since she’s been really wanting to sleep with Mommy and Daddy and we figure this will be the best way to get some sleep and to help with when the baby is here.  She was actually calling the bassinet her bed and was trying to get into it today. =)  I think I’ll be taking a break from crafts for now until we get all the bedrooms reorganized and set up for Bruiser and Moriah.


2 works in progress August 20, 2008

I’m starting to work on Moriah’s room since we bought her some new bed linens.  So, I took two painted canvases and I’m in the process of painting over them.  I’ve got two coats of primer on it today and now I’m trying to think of what I want to do with it.  I would like to have some kind of Christian theme and/or scripture incorporated into the pictures but just haven’t gotten the inspiration or ideas yet.

I’ve got another diaper wrap in the works.  My ankles were swollen tonight from all the walking and running around today that I needed something to do while I had my feet up.  So, I turned on the Olympics and grabbed a skein of some of my new yarn and started working on another diaper wrap.  I’ll probably finish this one up tomorrow night and post a picture.
