Yeah... Yeah.... I Know!

So, I know it's been like FOREVER since my last post... no one has to remind me. I just had no idea that life could get so crazy!!! Plus, it would be a whole lot easier and more fun to blog with the dreams of my new little one here. Isn't she beautiful.

Oh Val, Mommy would take so many great pictures of you with my new Canon DSLR _____ Camera. I left the model blank hunny (you know who you are) so that you could get me whichever one your little heart desires. This isn't a hint or anything but did you know that my birthday is almost a month away. Whew... time flies. I hope that somehow through cyberspace you are feeling just how much I love you right now!

But in reality I don't think I'll be getting one as soon as I would have liked being as we just welcomed a new member into our family. Meet Ms. 47" LG LCD. I guess we could call her Lucy GaGa for short. Yes, sadly at the beginning of this month Casey and I were greeted with the blue line of death.  I'm not sure that that is the technical term for what exactly happened to our TV but long story short Casey finally fulfilled the manly dream of BIG TV!  

And surprisingly (Although Ginormous) she makes our living room look so much bigger due to the re-arrangement of furniture. So he's happy, I'm happy, we're all happy. I must admit, watching movies is so much more fun now.

Oh Josh Lucas you are so drop dead gorgeous!) OOps did I blog that out loud. Ha Ha Ha

OK, so here's some projects I've been working on since we last talked.

Brynley's Room
So some of our very best friends (Jenny and Brian) are expecting there first child (Brynley) this upcoming May. Jenny knew that she wanted to do pink and brown in the nursery but was having a really hard time finding something that just made her heart go pitter patter. We looked everywhere for pink and brown geometric modern fabrics and NOTHING!!! So I had this crazy idea that "Hey, do you think that I could send off some designs and we could make the fabric?" These are the crazy kind of ideas that run through my head all day. As if life isn't hard and complicated enough. Ha Ha Ha

So right away I googled (what did we do before google) print your own fabric... and there it was. The greatest sight ever. Ladies and Gentlemen I introduce you to  Who comes up with all of this? And the search was over. Here are a few of the patterns we will be using in little Brnley's totally custom room.

The three patterns to the left are the ones that will be used for bedding. The top two for the bumper pad and the bottom one for the skirt. And the patterns to the right are just a few examples of some sheets little Brynley will be snuggled all up to durring the night. I designed the Camo one for Brian who is a hunter. I knew his heart would crumble when he read the sayings around the border "My daddy is a hunter." And Jenny absolutely loved that we could personalize Brynley's sheets with her own name on them. Valentine is really jealous of this but I assured him that one day he too will have his own personalized sheet. This project was just so much fun and I was just delighted to ease Jenny's mind with the whole ordeal of finding the perfect fabric. I can't wait to see the completed room once my mom works her little needle and thread magic.

Other than that I've been working on a couple of baby shower invitations and a wedding invitation for a Bride and Groom I was introduced to over the last couple of months. Rachel and Matt wanted something simple, and with cherry blossoms somewhere in the mix. Here is the final version we decided on. It's really unlike anything I've ever done before but I really am happy with how it came out.

Here is the invitation I did for my friend Rebecca. She will be delivering Jacob sometime in early March. She loved them and that's really all I wanted.

Well, I guess that sums up what I've been doing these past couple of weeks. I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. Obviously Casey and I got each other Lucy GaGa but my husband also surprised me with a dozen red roses and a card. And not one of those great value cards either so he did good.

Love always,
