Comedy lessons?!?!

Wow, what a busy week it has been and it is only Tuesday!! I have been helping a friend of mine that is a photographer do preschool pictures since Friday and needless to say..I'm not as funny as I thought I was! If someone only had a video camera to record how crazy we act just to get a little smile, they would make some money! ha! It has also been the first time for me to leave Anna for long time. She has been doing great though and my sister lives right down the road so I am able to hurry back to nurse her. She also now officially has her two bottom teeth and she is only 5 1/2 months old! My baby girl is growing up so fast! They are so cute though! I'll have to try to get a good picture of them soon to post.

Things have been busy with Gracious Creations also and I am so happy! I have been working on some custom orders lately...I just finished a sweet pillowcase dress and bib/burp cloth sets for a friend in Baton Rouge. I have a LSU dress to make for friend's little girl (just in time for the big Florida game!) and 2 baby blankets I'm all working on! I love it! The more the better! :) I love being able to create something for someone exactly with what they want because it makes it so special!

Here is a picture of the sweet pillowcase dress I made for my friend Amanda and I also listed it in my Etsy store:

And of course, I can't have a blog post without showing my sweet fritter, Anna. Here she is wearing the LSU pillowcase dress I made her for the Auburn game! GEAUX TIGERS!

Hehe! Well I hope you have a great rest of the week! I'm off to sew! :)

I Won!!

A few weeks ago I entered into a giveaway on one of my fellow EtsyBloggers pages and guess what? I won!! I was so surprised that I actually won out of about 50 comments. I was so excited! I won a great assortment of handmade cards from Cards by Jenna. She has a great variety of all different cards and one to fit every occassion! They are also really cute! I can't wait to start writing all my friends little notes! Here is a picture of all that I received in the giveaway:

You should stop by her store and buy some cute cards and gift tags! :) You can also check out her blog at http://www.cardsbyjenna.blogspot.com.

Thanks so much Jenna! I love them! :)

Fall Fun

I'm so excited it is starting to feel like Fall around here! After Hurricane Ike, the weather has been much cooler and very enjoyable! I can't wait to go walking with Anna! She loves to be outside! I'm so excited about Fall also because it is my favorite season. I love all the smells (pumpkin, cranberry, etc.), the first time I go to get my sweater out because it is getting chilly, and I really love Fall decorations. I just finished up my Fall placemats last night and I love them. I also got a few wreaths today from Wal-mart and put them up. I'm not skilled in the wreath making area. My sister's are much more skilled in that than I am. So these will have to do for now! I like them. Here is the one on my front door:

And here is the one on our side entrance door:

Here is a picture of my Fall table:

I love them so much I just wanted to share! I guess now I should start working on Christmas decorations...lol..Before you know it, it will be here! :)

Blog Carnival

Well, it's Blog Carnival time again and this time one of the topics was to share what your favorite color is and to show it in your work. Well one of my favorites colors has always been blue. I love all different shades of blue- navy; teal; light blue, etc. One of my favorite new listings I have made recently is from Sandi Henderson's Farmer's Market fabric collection and it has such a pretty light blue background with pink flowers and cherries on it! It is so adorable!

Another reason I love blue is because of my daughter's beautiful blue eyes! I remember when I was pregnant I would just pray and pray that she would get my blue eyes (her daddy has brown) and it looks so far like they will be blue! So pretty!

Oh I could just kiss her face off! :)

Well off to bed...Have a great night!

How cute!

How cute is this?!?!

I love this little tutu, from Love, September! It is so cute! I entered a giveaway to win it so hopefully my name is picked! I can just see Anna now all toddling around in it! :)

She has been so fun lately! Everyday she does a new thing! Yesterday she rolled over from her back to her tummy and is kicking and scooting when we put her on her tummy! She is also a little escape artist out of her seats..lol..

What a Silly goose!

Well I better go get ready for our church league volleyball championship game! Go Bethel Bombers!
