Pay it Forward!

Well, I've let something SLIP throught THE CRACKS!!!!! Big-Time! I know, you're so disappointed in me!

So, back in October 2009 (yes, 14 months ago!) I decided to play the Pay it Forward Game with Beth. Last week, I received my gift from her . . . but I have YET to do gifts for others!

I actually didn't have anyone sign up, so let's try this again!


1)You must have a blog! (Sorry, I don't make the rules)!

2)You must comment on this post stating that you want to play (please leave a way for me to contact you, either through your blog or by email)

*This is for the first 3 commenters.

3)If you are one of the 3 lucky ones . . . I will make you a little something and send it to you! I believe I techincally have a year to do this, but since I am so far behind, I will try and get it out REALLY soon!

4)You will put up something on your blog with these rules, and send a little handmade something to the first 3 commenters on your post in the next year. Then they will do the same and the cycle continues!

It's like those crazy chain letters from high school (send this to 14 people or you will never be loved!), but I think getting crafty things in the mail will be WAY better, don't you?!?!

Please help me out!!!!

Here is what Beth sent me, a GORGEOUS bag (I've already started to carry it everywhere!)! Included were some cute oragami wreaths, some Best Press (yea!) and AWESOME candy (which I promptly scarfed down. Hey, I'm pregnant . . . I have an excuse!)

I LOVE them!!! :)

I hope you want to play!

See ya!

PS - there is a button, but I don't know how to do buttons yet, so you can grab it off of Beth's post! Just don't ask me how to do it! :)

Happy New Year!

I know, I know. It has been a long (long, long, long, long) time since I last posted anything! I was totally unprepared for pregnancy!

We have been blessed to have a relatively easy pregnancy, compared to what some of my friends have gone through, but there is a LOT that no one tells you about!

Just to get you caught up, we are still due February 7, and we are having a little girl, Alison Grace! Now, I have been doing a lot of crafting for her (well, a lot for me anyway), but I'm still better at starting things than at finishing things, so there's not much to show for it yet. Over the next few weeks, though, I hope to show you some of the amazing things others have made for us and the wonderful nursery that S has put together! I'm sure things will fall into place in the next 5 weeks (ack!) Right?

Anyway, I do have 2 New Year's Resolutions . . . to eat healthier and to be more organized. (I think these two things are going to come with the territory this year, so they should be easy to keep, right?) Maybe the blog will help me be organized with my crafty stuff!

See ya soon!

PS: I got a new present for Christmas . . . expect my pictures to be MUCH better this year!
