She is here.

I am going to be back posting a bit because someone special arrived on Sunday, January 23rd, 2011 at 9:29am.

She weighs a whopping 7lbs 9oz (kidding about the whopping part) and was 20.5 inches long.  She is beautiful and so snuggly.  I finally got my "all natural," birth center, birth with the help of some wonderfully marvelous midwives, my amazing doula, my fabulous husband who I couldn't have done it without and my wonderful mother.  Labor was only 6 hours and yes it hurt but totally doable, why I didn't do it natural with the other two in beyond me!

I'd like to introduce my sweet Isabella Rae.
 here she is only a few hours old and already at home!

tired, but happy daddy and L, who is now a new BIG sister!
big brother R, and mama.  recognize the green and purple blanket granny squares?  I posted them a few weeks back.

the newborn wrinkles are slowly ironing out...01.24.11

  baby Bella's first sponge bath...

who can resist baby feet?  precious.

01.25.11 - three days old

and a crappy cell phone picture, but too cute not to post - 01.28.11

I will be posting weekly updates of her on Sundays (when I can).  Since life with a newborn, toddler, first grader and my school is just too crazy for me to fit in any craft time, I hope you don't mind the baby overload.  No crafting is sad, but oh well, that's life for now.  One day I will create again and blog about it.  But for now, enjoy some cute baby pictures and if you get tired of the lack of posting around here, and leave, I completely understand!  :o)

Happy New Year! (a little late)

Can you believe that it is 2011?  I can't.  It just seems like yesterday we were celebrating 2010.  Another year goes by!

In honor of the new year I would like to present my first project for Project Restyle.

I started with this, which I made a while back in Style School.
 I decided to give this styrofoam circle some new life for the holidays, I removed the old yarn, buttons, and paper flowers.

Nothing new was purchased for this wreath: I used vintage yarn, vintage glass ornaments, some glass ornaments from my tree that I bought last year, and lots of hot glue to throw this together.

It is based loosely on this wreath.

I love it!!

I love the colors, although its not the traditional "Christmas" colors, I adore green/aqua, silver/cream and pink together.  In fact, I love it so much I just might trim my little tree in this color scheme next year!
