Shh... Baby Sleeping

I've been really into projects lately instead of finishing Caleb's scrapbook and starting on Noah's. I'm so far behind and I don't think I'll ever catch up which is very frustrating but I guess it means I will always have something to do. I found this line of paper from Little Yellow Bicycle the other day and decided to make something cute for Noah's door to let his older brother know when he was sleeping. The colors and the paper are so cute.

It has been hanging here for a few days and it has actually helped Caleb lower his voice and not walk so heavy when walking by his door. So I can say that it was well worth my time in making it :)

A Tweet Birthday Card

I decided to make a birthday card for a friend of mine that I miss dearly and unfortunately never get to see. She lives in Texas and is a busy woman. I just wanted to wish her a Happy Birthday and let her know I was thinking of her.

New Creativity Area

I decided about a month ago to move my craft room from the very back of the house to the large sitting area in our bedroom. I was afraid I would get a little bit of resistance from the hubby but he was so great about it. We started early one Saturday morning and I finished it all within about 4 days! I love the space and I can't wait to get in here and be crafty! Here are some pictures of the new space.

I love all the windows. I love being in an open space instead of a small room. It gave us our guest bedroom back for when family and friends visit and its got enough space for my little one who will be very mobile very quickly! Everything now has a place and its time to use it all and have lots of fun!

First Card with Cricut Expression

So, after many tutorials and reading up on my newest electronic. I finally finished a card that I am in love with and actually pretty proud of myself. I found a similar idea at ScrappinBlogs and just ran with it. I was a little afraid of all the buttons and where I press shift and don't. I just pulled out the paper that I wanted and my mind went from there. I told my husband that this was so much fun and it was probably the best thing he's every bought me... well, except for my engagement ring, ha! Here is what I came up with :)

Happy Father's Day

Fun Father's Day for Caleb and Noah's Daddy. We started off the morning bringing coffee in bed, reading funny cards and giving presents. I've always wanted to decorate one of the 7Gypsies picture trays and I figured it would be a great gift for today. I snapped a few pictures with my cell phone last night before crawling in to bed. Daddy loved his present! It may have helped having these two cute boys as the center of attention.
