more updates from the past few months

i thought i would add some more pictures from our holiday's etc. i tried to post one in the previous post but it didn't do what i was hoping... but i couldn't figure out how to delete it.... so now its kind of like a where's waldo. maybe i'll leave a few more hanging around. it's kind of fun-- click on the tiny dot and find a hidden pic! the one hidden below is my hub on a walk through the woods bonding w/ little e... i think it is worth looking for ;-)

if i can figure out to comment on the others i post i will... otherwise-- you can simply enjoy images.

(i'm sorry for my technical deficiencies... i have spent my life caring a lot more about making mudpies -- teapots, doll clothes -- baby clothes... lots of things other than typing and computer skills! i feel like it is too late to make up for lost time... i'm doing the best i can w/ the time i've got)

end of the year 2007

i'm not very good @ this blogging business! i guess between parenting my little one and creating i don't have much time for things like this.

i have been very busy making christmas happen at my house - handmade christmas cards and biscotti... decorating the tree... making the best christmas music mix ever! ... oh yeah- and getting the plague! an evil stomach virus that attacked the whole family @ once... just before our marathon holiday travel.

on the bright side- i will try to post our chistmas card pic... enjoy!

first baby clothes!

these are the cute little shoes... they are lined w/ an old felted wool sweater-- snugly!

here are my first attempts at making clothes for little e... i'm proud as a peacock!

After the first show...(well perhaps it's the 2nd)

i am home dealing with the aftermath of my first show for plain jane stuff. i was in montegomery at the 'holiday market'. it went better than i expected! ...much better than my first craft show experience years ago with my highschool friend - we were 'ladybugs' ... we had very cute stuff-- too cute for the show we were a part of. this time jess and i teamed up again, and while our stuff was very cute the odds were against us! our booth was at the very back of the coloseum in the concourse... very hard to find-- except for our big bright pink christmas trees! i'll have to post pics soon.
i sold quite a few slings and i am so thrilled! i saw so many mamas walking by with tired arms carrying their babies around... or pushing a fussing baby in a stroller. it makes me so satisfied to know that at least ten mamas now have a wonderful way to carry their babies without straining and exhausting themselves. and these lucky babies get to have a special time looking at mama and seeing the world from her vantage point( & best of all-- flirting with strangers @ eye level... @ least my little man is a big flirt!)... instead of staring at peoples knees. there are some mamas who bought a sling to carry around their youngest of many children. it makes my heart warm to think how the whole family will benefit from having a happy baby and a mama w/ free hands!
on my first day home i have been swamped with laundry & grocery shopping... but i found time to begin my next creative quest-- baby clothes. little e now has a super super cute new outfit! pic to follow as soon as i finish unpacking the car (i have my priorities straight don't i?) and get the camera out.
