It has been a busy week here, School is off for spring break and we have been enjoying some nicer weather, there was even time to fly kites! I have been working on TONS of crafty stuff, but I can’t seem to actually finish anything and what is finished I can’t share, yet. This is finished, the painted owls have been successfully cut and sewn and they ended up exactly like I pictured. I opted to not outline them on the recommendation of comments here and on twitter, see I did use some of that pink shirt. Here is my top secret project (yeah, I know super blurry, but I had to cropped it super small). I’m really excited about this one and I will have a tutorial for this with a downloadable design. I have another top secret project in the works that involves a bucket, but I haven’t had time to start that one yet. Polymer clay cupcake charms, I have been all over town looking for micro beads so I can make some of these with sprinkles. I also have been making decorative pins with polymer clay. I made a mold to make the bottoms of the cupcakes, super easy and super quick! I need to make another batch and take some more photos so I can put together a tutorial. These are part of a new project that I will hopefully be launching soon.Wool crochet, now I just need to felt this one and sew it all together, I’m not sure how this one is going to work out.
I have dismantled an old VHS tape and am working on a small sample project too. As you can see, my big pink belly has started to creep into my photo shoots, I normally edit it out, but I thought I would leave it in this time. I am at the beginning of month nine (give or take two weeks) and things are starting to get interesting around here. I have two little people asking almost every day if the baby is still in my tummy, I’m frantically trying to finish every craft project I’ve wanted to do right now!, I’m trying to do some home improvements/repairs, and I want to landscape my yard…there is a really long list of things that I wanted to have done before the baby gets here, it’s really pretty wild, I don’t know what it is about being pregnant that makes it seem like there won’t be time to do at least some of this stuff after the baby gets here. And the big issue is that we haven’t decided on a name.
Today we are just going to lounge around at home, I think I might wear my jammies all day and maybe I can finish one more project (or maybe I’ll start another one ;-D ) Ohh, and I’m taking name suggestions and also looking for guest bloggers to post Mid-April-ish, (whenever I have the baby), let me know if you’re interested!
