it's been awhile...

Crazy busy life has only gotten a little more crazier and busier. My sister and I have started our own little shop where we sell our creations. Here's the link to our online shop: and here are a few of my favorite new things...bib necklaces!

New opportunities...

I've decided to take on a new part time job...I can practically work from home in whatever attire I choose...almost.

If doing all the book work, insurance work, invoices, bank runs, childcare, house work wasn't enough...I'm now a Scentsy Consultant. I had thought about joining for a while and took the plunge! If you have never tried a Scentsy system before, trot on over to my website and check it out...and let me know if you have any questions! It's hard not to fall in love with these products! Now back to work I must go :) CLICK HERE

a lack there of...

Things have been pretty busy in our house. Seems like Christmas came and went, but it sure was a great one! My husband got me the slr camera that I had been wanting, so we have been busy playing with that!

Poor Max and Kole are getting sick of my "photo shoots", but they better get used to them!
One of my best friends made Kole a cute little onsie, and I couldn't resist handing him a spoon. He wasn't very interested in that!
Camo is a MUST at our place.
Max likes playing with my typewriter, so I popped the lenses out of my old glasses and let him goof around!

I really liked this picture of Max. I'm really trying to figure out lighting and the best settings for everything, but you just can't beat natural lighting...I think the lighting contrast on his face made for a neat picture!
Well, this post wasn't the most fun, but it let's me explore my hobby of photography!

some of the others...

Here are some of the other pictures that Sarah @ Koerner Creations Photography did. I can't wait to see the rest of them!

welcome little one...

This is our newest little one! We welcomed Kole Ellsworth Baker to the world on September 22nd, 2010 @ 6:11pm....on our wedding anniversary! What a great gift he is!
His older brother couldn't be any happier!

Today we took newborn photos. He is 6 days old already!

Welcome little Kole, we love you soooo much!

Wow, what a crazy whirlwind the past couple of weeks have been! The first of September brought about the news of one of my best friends having her baby 3 months early. We pray each and every day for Jenny, Justin, and their sweet little Kaiden. He has been such a strong little guy, and we pray that each day he continues to have that "fight" in him!

Two days later my "pregnancy buddy" Kara had her adorable little boy Robert. We were only a few days apart with our pregnancy and she ended up going 2 weeks early, so now I almost feel alone in a way...she just reminds me that she has joined me on the "mommy league" which is so very true!

Here is the quilt that was made for Robert. He was a surprise and we were all thinking girl. I hope this quilt is boy enough for the little guy!

I am at a stand still on my waiting game for our little man. I could go anytime and I certainly feel that way. I am currently 3cm dilated and only 1 small cm away from being in "active labor"..BUT, my doctor is out of town this weekend so we are really hoping I can at least hold off until Sunday night. We will see. If all else fails I'm scheduled for an induction on Wednesday morning at 5am due to the fact that my doctor will be gone the 26th-Oct 2nd for an convention and I really hope to have him deliver.

Other than that I have been getting last minute things together, bags packed, and arrangements made. I worked on a quilt yesterday getting the main top finished with borders left to add. I bought the fabric last year on our quilt guild trip to Omaha and every time I open my sewing armoire it's screams my name. I figured any quilt work would help keep my mind off the waiting game!

thinking of others...

That's how most of my quilts start off. I've been busy busy making for others. First off was a new batch of paci-clips to sell at the Little Red Hen.

Then a girly quilt for one of my best friends.

Then a table runner for part of a wedding gift.

A couple more baby quilts (I can not share yet)...
And a quilt for a friend (which I shipped before getting a picture of )

These were all made in one week. I am pretty proud that I have the energy to keep up with all of it too. This week my list consists of making an October birthday gift, working on a quilt, and re-binding a quilt that needs some love!
