It's Spring {Texas Blue Bonnets}

There’s nothing like snapping pics of your babies in a field of Texas Blue Bonnets. The pink dogwood tree bloom pictures are so lovely. It's Spring!

Marin's First Book {She Reads!}

No comments:
I'd like to interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to place this monumental event in the timeline of my blog world and recognize the accomplishment of my eldest daughter, Marin Evans. She read her first book: "Mat" and loved it.

The Bob Books series was money well spent. Simple, stories based on simple vowel sounds that add new letters and words as you progress. Plus Marin loves the simple, silly illustrations.

Egg Theme Maternity Shower

1 comment:
I'm fortunate to have a good, on-going relationship with two childhood friends. We've know each other since we were six or seven and growing up we were often referred to as "the three amigos." Well the third amigo is pregnant with her first baby and in keeping with a tradition that WE created we hosted a Maternity Shower in her honor.

What's a Maternity Shower? It's the brain child of Tasha Carter Marsh who can be quoted as saying "the best thing about being pregnant is shopping for cute maternity clothes. Krystina, when you get pregnant I'm going to throw you a party so you'll be the most stylish mama on the block." And she did! My best wardrobe is my maternity collection. The first ever Maternity shower was hosted on March 4, 2007 for yours truly. Tasha's was on September 7, 2009.

Here is an overview of the small brunch gathering we had to celebrate the "Eggscellent News" that Sarah is "Eggspecting a baby."

She Finger Paints!?

No comments:
Okay, so maybe you don't realize what a BIG deal this is, but Marin painted with her FINGERS. My Marin, the one who has a conniption if the paint colors mix, or if she has to use a paint brush that doesn’t match the paint color, used her fingers to SMEAR paint and had a blast doing it. This gal is a painter from way back. Check out her photos from August of 2009. Amazing how much she's changed.

Felt Birthday Hat {For Miranda Panda}

1 comment:

I created this custom, felt birthday hat for Miranda's first birthday. My best friend Tasha chose a panda theme party for her baby girl's birthday. Little ones LOVE to play peek-a-boo, so I thought it would be fun to have the panda on her hat play peek-a-boo.

This is the fourth felt birthday hat I've designed. An enjoyable craft. Can't wait to make one for baby A. Here are the other hats I've created.

Sure! I can Shirr!

I’ve been eyeing this ADDORABLE sun suit on Made By Rae. But have been hesitant because it required skills in applying snaps and shirring. After a few helpful tutorials and an evening and afternoon of sewing, this mama churned out THREE shirred outfits. Two sun suits and a dress for Marin.
The best part of shirring? Watching the fabric magically shrink when water and steam are applied (totally neato). ALMOST makes hand winding a bobbin worth it….almost.
