My bracelet above raises awareness about CDH. CDH is a life threatening birth defect that affects approximately 1 in 2,400 births every year. My cousin David and his wife Ashley’s precious angel Maxton was diagnosed with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) at his 19-week ultrasound. He fought hard for 18 days but earned his wings on March 21, 2009. You can read more about Maxton’s story here.
I am SO pooped right now! I woke up at 5am this morning to finish two little nursery paintings for a baby shower (actually a “sprinkle”) for two of my friends. When I got home from the shower at noon, my husband and a bunch of friends surprised me with a birthday party! I had the best day hanging out in the pool with our kids, drinking margaritas and grilling out!
I made these little crinkle tag toys last night using the tutorial at Joy’s Hope. Such a cute and easy idea for a baby present! I’m going to a baby shower tomorrow for my two friends Monique and Seena and I’m so excited to give these to them!
I made these cute little shorts but they seemed so plain that I added the little lace border at the bottom. I love the lace so much I’m going to have to find more! Don’t you think the shorts look dainty now?
I’ve been looking everywhere for a wooden paper towel holder that I could use to hold up the dowel that all my ribbon is organized on but I haven’t been able to find one! I got fed up today and just hung the dowel below one of my shelves using string…and I’m really happy with the way it turned out! I feel much more organized tonight…..
If you are renovating a home, building a home or just renovating a room….. before the drywall goes up…… TAKE PHOTOS of what is behind your walls! My framer told me to do this and I can’t even tell you what a lifesaver it has been! I’ve been have this musty smell come out of a few of the light switches and under the bar sink in the kitchen. By posting my question and the photo below on a DIY website, a plumber was able to help me pinpoint what was wrong without me having to tear out all the cabinets!
