I think this page I made for the KI Memories blog might be my most fave ever...
I fired up my dusty ol' Silhouette!! For Christmas, I asked Santa to bring me new blades and new carrier sheets, and once I downloaded the new software onto my desktop computer, it was up and running and good as new! Then of course, I have made another Santa wish list for all the new goodies they have: sketch pens, interfacing for fabric, adhesive cardstock, and a tote bag to DIE FOR!...lots of fun stuff to try out if you have a Silhouette and haven't been to their store lately. If you didn't already know, KI Memories has all kinds of cute shapes you can get for your Silhouette, on this page I used one of their butterflies. You can read those details here.
The photo is of Maggie in Pig Tails because her hair has been getting in her eyes, but I don't want to cut it. Today it's in a single Pony on top of her head and she looks ADORBS!
Today appears to be a rare sunny day in grey and dreary North Bend, so we may have to venture out when Daddy gets home! I hope you have a great weekend!! (((hugs)))
I posted a project on the KI Memories blog about a week or so ago, and took pictures of Maggie's room, but I forgot to come here and post them for everyone to see! Aside from the living room area, and my office (mostly) this is the only other area of the house I can say is done...
Poor Maggie, here we move into a bigger house, and she still sleeps in a closet like Harry Potter! :D
I joke, it's actually great! The room is perfect for her, she just sleeps here and maybe will read a book or two in the morning when I am making the bed or brushing my teeth in the bathroom...I like having her close, but still have that privacy. When we first moved, we took the door off, so it was open right to our room...but as she got older and had some repeated sleepless nights with teething, we knew that we needed to put the door back on sooner than later...so now the door is back on, but we leave it cracked open and she always has a fan to circulate the air inside. The added quiet and darkness really helps with her sleep, and she is back to being baby sleep champion of the world! (KNOCK ON WOOD- don't want to jinx anything!!)
We kept the decorations in here pretty simple. I am always looking for a cute rug, but everything I like it too expensive for my non-existent budget...so until I find one on clearance somewhere or learn how to make something on the cheap, we've skipped it. And...one of these days I will get around to swapping out the ceiling light fixture for something fun...it's just the standard rental light right now.
So that's that! She likes it, I like it...so what more do we need!!
I have another project to post on the KI Blog tomorrow, so I hope you will come back and check it out! I SCRAPPED a page...can you believe it?Pigs must be flying somewhere. Booyah!
This picture was in the card that John made for me for Mother's Day...we had a simple quiet day at home, just relaxing and enjoying time together with our little peanut. She is the best gift anyone could wish for and I love being her Mommy. I hope all of you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
Look at little Miss Thing, only 14 months old! The only thing missing from this photo is the "bracelets" she likes to wear (anything round that she can put on her arm). I put a clip in her hair today, and I kid you not, she said "pretty."
