The butcher, the baker, the candlestickmaker.

Or maybe it should be the camper, the baker, and the biggest mess-maker. We had a busy weekend last week on top of a bunch of fun freelance jobs. I'm working on a magazine article, and 8 more Cricut projects with the new Picturesque cartridge. So fun! But tons of work! Have you ever been camping with a 5 mo old?!? I was scared of the bears. You can lock most of the food in the car, um... just not the baby food. I asked Dave if bears liked milk, and he said I should only worry about the baby bears. Nice.

Penny went to a birthday party for her cute cousin and got to get all dressed up. She loved it.

She even made sure to taste test her present. We watch "Hell's Kitchen," so she knows how this is done.
I just finished 8 projects using the "A Child's Year" and "Stamping" cartridges a couple weeks ago. I'll have to see if they're out yet so I can post you a preview of the projects! They turned out so fun! I've been scouring the internet to see if my "Pink Journey" cartridge is out yet. I've heard it's packaged with some kind of pink cricut? If you see it let me know!
This is my mess before it really started. It's nice and cropped so you can't see the rest of the room. Dis-a-ster. And yes, I did make 3 trips to Hobby Lobby in the last 24 hours!!! ;) Mom watched Penny for me during the last trip and the sweet workers were concerned when I walked in without my baby. That's when you know you've been there too often for too long.


Whew! Time flies.

I can't believe I haven't posted an update in 5 months! Yikes! A few people had asked to see my birth announcements; and you are getting to see them before the family since I haven't actually mailed them yet. Whoops. My excuse is that I'm still trying to design my envelopes. I love pretty envelopes. We did finally settle on a name (yes, it took me a week to decide; we literally named her on our way out the door of the hospital 5 days after having her)! She has kept me busy, and I've been busy working on all kinds of fun things for Making Memories, Provo Craft, Cricut, and a little magazine illustration here and there as well. So sorry for neglecting you dear blog!

DH is getting to be mom for a day whether he likes it or not because of his smart a comments to a friend last night (about me just sitting in bed sleeping and nursing all day, um yeah. HA!). We'll see how the day goes. It could be interesting. He's making me breakfast right now. ;) Good husband.

I've been working on my photo skills more than my scrapbooking lately, but have plenty of scrapping to catch up on now. I feel like I need to make some more cute photo frames/brushes....

My mac is back from getting the graphics card replaced. It only took me 4 months to get it to the apple store for a three day repair.

OH! and we moved. I knew there was another biggie that I was forgetting! Tons of work, but I'm glad it's all over now.

So to catch up on the babe:
The "coming home" shot. I love big bows.

She loves her swing, and so do I. (couple weeks old)
I think I really captured her true love of nightgowns, don't you think?4 months and enjoying a little tummy time.

4 and a half months and already sitting up! This girl is going places fast!More updates to come soon, and hopefully a freebie in there somewhere too! Thanks so much for all your wonderful comments and emails.
