A very BIG THANK YOU for all your encouraging words & support for my new shop! It’s been a fun experience and I hope to add more goodies soon! Some in the form of squirrels & lions by special request!

In other news, the baby is getting fat and there are few things I love more than a fat baby {ok, slight exaggeration, there are a lot of things I love more but you know what I mean}! This isn’t a great picture but my picture taking abilities have been somewhat challenged lately. He turned 4 weeks on Monday and he’s getting to be a hefty little guy. I could eat his chubby cheeks & furrowed brow to pieces!

The house is screaming “PLEASE COME CLEAN ME!”

The laundry is screaming “PLEASE COME PUT ME AWAY!”

Today I have broken my very own rule of doing housework before blogging… so I better post quickly and get back to the grindstone!

ps– I just want to let y’all know what an encouragement you are to me. From the emails to the comments I truly feel blessed by this blogging community… can we call it that? I had so much fun on my “pretend trip” last week that my wheels are turning about another interactive post!

    Funny you have a 'clean house' rule, too…so do I (otherwise I could blog surf all day & the house would stay a mess & I would totally miss the window of cleaning while the kids are sleeping!). Your 'shop' things are so cute and I hope you sell lots of your goodies. You have very much (through your posting) inspired me as I bought a sewing machine/monogram machine the other day. I have been working like crazy to figure out what I am doing and it is too much fun! Thanks for posting all of your tips and helpful hints.
    Happy house cleaning..

    what a cute little man! i think he looks like both sissies! our little girl looks like both big bubbas, so i guess the third is the glue that makes us all stick together!

    and my house is screaming the same things yours is.

    You’re a rock star mom with the patience of Job. And you add such an abundance of sunshine and creativity to the “blogging community”. Thank you for that!

    If I waited for a clean house to blog, I would never ever have a post. Ever.

    Seeing your cute baby face makes me want to kiss him all over. Enjoy him! One of my favorite parts of blogging is the cheering squad I feel I have from it!

    I might need to enforce a “no blog rule” at my house until the ironing/laundry is done. 😉 That little Pumpkin is so cute! Those cheeks!!!!! Just like little marshmallows.
