baby – Happily Ever Crafter

A New Bundle of Joy +SU! Stuff :)

I am so sorry for posting so late at night!  I wanted to fill you in…

You are probably wondering (or not, lol) where I have gone the last few days!  Well, guess what!!  My baby nephew arrived on Tuesday!!!  We (my little ones, mom, and sister) were waiting at the hospital for a while on this precious little one to enter the world!  Check out one of the cutest babies that I have ever seen!

Congratulations to my brother and Brittany!!
And, here’s a bit about my day today.  My kiddo’s + one (my daughter’s friend, back left) wanted to do a lemonade stand.  Of course they were not getting ANY sales from our corner of the world so, they insisted that we go to the end of the street.  Well, being the kind of mom that I am it took me a little while to say YES.  I mean, you get me right?!  I would have to go with them and try to stay out of their little adventure with nothing to do but, make sure they do not go into on coming traffic.  I am secretly hoping that they file this away in their our Mom was cool when she….fill in the blank..memory files. 🙂  We made it through and I am happy to report that without spending ALL day on the corner (yep, lol) they each made close to $6.  We came back home and they had lunch (which was WAY late–like 2:30pm) and then I took them to 5 Below so that they could blow their money faster than they made it.  LOL.  
All in all it’s been a great few days.

Sweet Noah’s Ark Baby Card #2 (My Favorite!); Stampin’ Up!

I did it again!!  I guess I will need to put MERRY MONDAY on my calendar and SET A REMINDER!  Hang in there and I might get it together.

Here is another baby shower card that I created last week.  I mentioned to you all that I had a baby shower for my brother and his girl friends baby this past weekend and it went so great.  I will say (as most anyone who plans or help plans such an event) that I am slightly happy it’s over.  LOL.  It gets a bit stressful when trying to figure out who meant to RSVP and all.  We just wanted to be sure that we had plates, cups, food, favors, etc. for everyone.  Luckily we had plenty of everything.

Isn’t this such a sweet card?  I know that I said this already but, I just love this stamp.  It retired last year and it has gotten more use in the past week than it did in the last year!  Crazy.

I used the NEW Blendabilites to color the images.  LOVE these markers and YOU can now order yourself some too!  See the link below.

I’ve listed this card and a few others in my Etsy Shop if you’d like to hop over and see those go HERE.  🙂

Guess What I Am Doing This Weekend! :)

A BABY Shower!!  My nephew is on his way soon so, we shall celebrate with gifts and a party! 🙂
Here is a card that I made to match the wrapping paper (of course!).  This stamp is retired now but, I don’t think I will ever part with it.  I love it!  In fact, while creating this card I made a few more that I will be listing in my Etsy Store next week! 
 Here is a look at the inside:

I am going to keep this short because I have to get to the store for a few last minute things!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I Have a Project to Show You Today! :)

Today is the kid’s LAST day of school for the Summer.  This year I am actually excited!  I am ready to relax and enjoy their company.  As time goes on I am realizing how fast time goes.  I feel like I am going to blink and they will be heading to college.  Whoa.  Now that’s maybe a bit too serious, lol.  Hopefully, you understand what I am talking about.  I now have a FIRST grader and a FOURTH grader!
One good thing about my current situation is that I get to help plan a BABY shower for my brother and his girlfriend.  This is the first baby on my side (besides my own) so, I am super excited.
I can NOT wait to hold that little bundle of joy.  He will be named after my Dad (who passed away 20 years ago) so, that is pretty neat!  In fact, he and my son will have the same middle name. 🙂
Here are the invites that I came up with.  I had to keep it kind of simple because I had a few to do.  Yep, I completed 70 of these little gems!

I have to address these puppies and get them in the mail this weekend!
Have a great Friday and if you are like me~Enjoy the beginning of your Summer Break!
