It's Been A Long Long Time!

Hello blogging world! Thought I forgot about you, didn't you? I have been gone for a couple years - and my how things have changed.

We moved into a fab house with my own craft space (but it needs to get refurbished due to water damage - boo hoo!) that I love and have gotten crafty in.

The Kid is 3 years old! ZOMG! The Baby is 7 months old. Yup - that's right, a baby. He is spectacular and his big brother loves him bunches.

Once we get our tax refund we are hoping to get the work done in the basement so we can get the playroom and my craft area situated. I have been very busy reading other craft blogs to get some inspiration. Now that I have two youngsters I need to get going on chronicling their lives.

Where Have I Been?

I feel like life has been flying by. I don't have time to scrapbook or create. I really need a craft room where I can leave my creations out and work on them during the day/night when The Kid is sleeping. I hate having to pack everything up if I want to work on something. I miss using my Gypsy. I need to be crafty. I have so much new stuff that I would love to use.

Don't get me wrong, I love having The Kid here,spending my days with him and watching him grow up - he's walking now! He is perfect. Just wish I had a craft room. Maybe some day... The Husband and I have looked a few houses recently. Now is good time to buy - a definite Buyer's Market. But we can't agree, and we don't have to move, so we are not in a rush. One of the first things I look for in all of the houses we've viewed is where my craft room could be.

Like I said, maybe some day...

Whoa! Has is sure been awhile

Life and a mobile baby has gotten the best of me! Can't believe The Kid turned one year old last week! We are having his big party this weekend. WooHoo! It is going to be a good time for sure!

Now on to some fun news. My Pink Stamper is having a great Giveaway here. If there is still anyone out there following my blog, go check it out. Robyn is awesome and so so helpful and creative. I highly recommend her Cricut Fun DVD series.

Oops - The Kid has just managed to pull his pants off. Got to go get him ready for bed.

What has been going on....

Well, The Kid's chickenpox got infected and he had to go to the hospital for four days. That was not fun. He was so miserable and sad and was not eating anything. He is almost back to 100%. He has a couple more infected pox areas that need to heal up and then he will be good as gold!

We were unable to spend Christmas with any family, so we will be having The Kid's 'first' Christmas at the end of January.

We recently joined a local mommies group and will be meeting up with them next week. Excited to get out during the colder months and do some fun stuff.

I have been slacking off on the crafty stuff - with a sick baby and really no place to craft it has been slow. I have been buying lots of stuff though. You never know when the urge to get creative will hit and you will need stuff! I just saw the cutest project here and want to try it. So simple and easy and definitely something I can do once The Kid has gone to sleep. I think I will head over to Target today to see if I can find any of the little mailboxes.

The Kid is Miserable!

Chickenpox has really wiped out my baby boy. He has had a fever since Wednesday and is really not eating anything. He is drinking a lot of juice.

I am hoping that his pox are not infected. Some of the ones on his torso look very strange. The Husband and I are calling the pediatrics dept tomorrow to see if we can get someone to look at them.

Please send good thoughts our way and hope that he will be better soon!

Chickenpox has Hit the Household

The Kid has the chickenpox. :( We are not a happy family. So close to the holidays makes it a little worse. The Kid will be fine, but tonight he is miserable.

I purchased an American Crafts Christmas kit from here and was excited to use it with photos of The Kid's first Christmas. We can't travel to visit my family because The Niece has not had her chickenpox vaccination yet. We are planning on celebrating once The Kid feels better - maybe in January. My Parents are going to keep their tree up and we will just pretend that it is Christmas in January so we can have The Kid's first Christmas. I need to take lots of photos so I can use the new Christmas goodies I just got in the mail today!

Send good thoughts to The Kid for a speedy recovery.

The end.

It's Been a Long Long Time

I guess I have been away from the blogging world. I have been busy with Christmas shopping/decorating.

I went to an all day crop last Saturday and had a great time. I used my gypsy and even had another women asking me all kinds of questions about it. Maybe I made a sale. That day was also the first snow storm of the season. I did 14 pages of The Cat's album. I know, I'm a dork, scrapping my cat.

The Kid is getting big and crawling all over. We finally had to gate him in to the living room. The Cat is not happy. He cannot jump over the gate. We sent out our Christmas cards with a photo of The Kid. Everyone has said they are the cutest of the cutest. I agree.

I just got two new cartridges to upload to the Gypsy. Office Help and Storefront. Think I'll go do that now.
