Been a little busy

The last few weeks have been fairly hectic around here... hosting 2 birthday parties, out of town company, prepping for baby to come and just being hot and uncomfortable, didn't lead to much blogging. I do have some major catch up to do though.. and hopefully, I can get a little break here and there to do so.

We finally, 7 days late, welcomed little Julia to our family on July 11th. She is so much like her big sister... Paisley is just completely smitten with her, and is the biggest helper and friend to her. They're so cute together:

My Girls

I haven't taken too many pictures yet, but will get on that right away ;).

Once I get Julia on a somewhat decent routine, we should be able to get things running again.

Still waiting

Still waiting for this baby to arrive, we're 4 days late at this point.

It has freed up time to do a few projects I've been wanting to do, but putting off... just simple ones.

Last night I did letters for the girls' bedroom doors:


I still want to put another layer of seal on them before hanging them. Paisley picked both papers from a selection I pulled out for her.

This was a simple project, as I got the letters on clearance at Michael's, traced them on the paper, cut them out, and then modge podged them to the letters. Took all of 5-10 minutes, and each matches the decor of their rooms, sorta.

I also got t-shirts made for the girls last night. Wasn't sure what I wanted to do on them yet... something matchy, but wasn't sure. But since the Calgary Stampede started today, decided to go with a country theme. I decided to stencil them with fabric paint and freezer paper cut on my Cricut. Turned out cute:




While I had the Cricut out, I did up a shirt for my friend's baby boy:


Moose T

Also whipped up this new style of hat, which I'll be listing soon, for her new baby:

Aviator Bomber Hat

All in an evening's work. Felt rather productive last night.

This morning I started on inventory, and found a plethora of products that are complete and not listed yet. I've been fighting with my photo applications, and having difficulty getting things uploaded the last couple weeks.. but hopefully I can get most listed soon. I just have to do it in a really round about slow way... so it takes much more time to complete. You don't want to even know how long photos for this post took. There's a reason they're unedited.
