early film school...

Max and I decided to get creative playing some new little snakes he got from my mom and my camera. This has turned out to be a lot of fun and we plan to make more of these.

helping out...

A dear friend of mine is getting married next weekend and in preparation of that we made her a card box. She had first rented a bird cage and then saw some examples of these hat boxes transformed into card boxes....so this is our attempt at that. Last night we laughed, created, and ate pizza, and what a fun night it was!

Last weekend we ventured to Sioux Falls for her bachlorette party. It was a blast...and as much of a blast that it could be with 4 expectant mothers. We all dressed in "little" black dresses and had dinner at Bracco. After dinner we went back to our rooms at the Hilton and played games, laughed, watched presents being open, and laughed.

Here is part of the gift I gave to the bachlorette. I tried to use her wedding colors as best as I could and couldn't help but to to glitz it up with some swovarski crystals.




Here's wishing the engaged couple the best of years to come. Can't wait to help them celebrate some more!!

diaper duty...

It's time for me to get my rear in gear and make some essentials for our upcoming arrival. Here is the first thing I have made and it's more for me than the baby, but oh well!



I found a picture online of a bag I liked and then just drafted my own pattern. I think it will work!
We found out a couple weeks ago that we will be welcoming another boy and all of us are very excited. My pregnancy this time around has been a very enjoyable one. I'm sure when we are down to the last 4 weeks or so I will be ready to be done, but as of now I've had no swelling, no protein in my urine, and no high blood pressure so I can't complain. We have 15 weeks to go and I hope that I'm able to naturally go into labor with no complications!
