Happy Spring!

Good morning and Happy Spring, Cricuteers!

All the snow has finally melted from our yard, and I officially have Spring Fever!  The Spring to-do list is ever growing.  I am so ready to get outside and enjoy the fresh air.  We've had several really nice days lately... one that even allowed me to open all the windows / doors and air out my house.  Ahh... the simple joys in life!

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, my husband and I are expecting a new addition to our family.  We had our fourth ultrasound on Friday, and everything looked wonderful.  Baby Boy is growing big and strong.  11 oz. so far!  Average weight for 19 weeks is only 8.5 ounces.  Our little one is still about a week ahead in size.  My husband's convinced we are growing a linebacker.  (Easy for him to say when he's not the one who has to birth this child.  LoL.)

I know I've been extremely absent these days.  I'm still very tired and experiencing a major scrappin' block.  But I'm looking forward to finding my creative mojo again.  I've acquired some fun new Stampin' Up goodies over the winter that I just can't wait to play with... lots of new ink, markers, stamps, watercolor pencils, and other fun goodies.  My crafting budget is way down as we prepare for baby... I have only bought 2 Cricut cartridges so far in 2011!  *GASP*  But I have enough supplies on hand to last me until 2012... so I'm not worried.  :-)

Hope all is well with you these days!  Enjoy your Sunday!

Until next time, Cricuteers!

God is good

Hello Cricuteers!

I bet you thought I forgot about you and this wonderful world of scrapping blogs. Not at all!  However, I have entered the exciting, yet exhausting world of pregnancy.  The past three months have been a crazy whirlwind of doctors' visits, tests, and couch rest.  Our doctors are being overly cautious as my first pregnancy ended in the stillbirth of my beautiful daughter, Faith Rose.  So instead of spending my post-work hours in the scrap room, I've been napping or laying on the couch reading / watching tv.  {Thank goodness for DVR!}  I will happily give up scrapping time for the adorable bundle of joy growing inside me.  There will be plenty of time for scrapping (and plenty of moments to scrap!) after the baby is born.

So if I'm a little absent over the next few months, I hope you will understand.  I'll keep in touch as my energy level allows.

Until next time, Cricuteers!

P.S.  It's a BOY!!  :-)
