Color Wheel Swap

I have picked out my fabrics (all Purple) and now I need to cut, cut, cut away....
The fabric swap is over at Bolo Heads. I need to get to the post office tomorrow so they arrive in time for the April 23rd deadline. Yikes!

Ms. Robin has Eggs

So the Robin outside my back door has been hard at work laying eggs. Today is day 4 and I am hoping to see a 4th egg or her aggressively keeping the 3 she has warm.

I have completed another project! I purchased a PDF pattern from Little-Lizard King on Etsy for the Fancy Pants Diaper Cover.
And here is how it turned out for me.

Thrifty Stocking

I am back to my coupon shopping again and have come across good deals especially at Walgreens!

New House Guest....Bad Timing

So this morning I go to feed my daughters hermit crabs (another new house guest) and just happen to see out my kitchen door a nest with a mama bird diligently working on it!

We just, this past weekend, started building a deck. I noticed then that either a bird had started a nest or there was just some debris in the corner of the door on the jamb. I didn't think much of it.

Well I guess my first thought was right. Now I don't know what to do! We have to finish the deck and I hate to disturb her work. I know she won't stay regardless once the deck work continues and is complete. I hate for her to lose her nest though...

I just started back at the gym on Tuesday and had a training session. It felt soooo good! So I went back on Wednesday, again felt great! Today I am feeling it. I think I will give my body a day of rest of the hard core stuff and maybe do some Just Dance 2 for the Wii or some Zumba on the Wii.

In the crafty sense I have joined a fabric swap! I am excited!
It is a color wheel swap and it is being hosted by Robyn over at Bolo Heads.

I have also been dabbling in photography lately. I do enjoy it and I have some sessions scheduled this year. I can't wait. My first session will be a newborn session so we are just awaiting the arrival. I am excited! I love taking pics of babies. Then over the summer I will have a maternity session and another baby session. How exciting! I know for certain I have a senior session too for my best friends son. So far I have only done those for girls so I am anxious to take his pics and see what I can do with him.

My most recent victim of my camera was my cat. I don't think she liked it too much but I sure did. As always Click to Enlarge but please DO NOT Copy.

As Usual life gets away from us

It has been 6 months since my last post and that is way toooo long.
In the last half year I have done plenty just haven't posted.
I have done lots of sewing (purchased a new sewing machine!), celebrated holidays and birthdays, went through a job position elimination, been redeployed to a new position (waiting to learn what that is still), had major surgery and now sitting home and healing for about 2wks longer.
Here are a few pics of what I have been up to. Click to enlarge.
