Sorry I've been a little MIA lately.  I'll sum up the last few months.

All summer long people gave us food they had grown.  Luckily, I was kind of "nesting".  I made grape juice, grape jelly, apple juice, dehydrated apple chips, canned pears, canned peaches, and canned tomatoes.  I attempted to dehydrate potatoes, but it didn't work out.  Maybe I'll try again next year.  I was going to take a picture of everything to, but I never got around to it.  And now all the juice, jelly, and apple chips are gone.  :(

Winter has been hard.  Our house has become too small for two active little boys, and there isn't much to do outside in single digit weather.  We haven't had a lot of snow to play in either.

In January, our sweet baby girl was born.  She weighed 8 lbs 10 oz and was 22 inches long. (Although I think they measured inaccurately and she was only 21 1/2 inches long.)  (Sorry,  my internet is too slow to upload a picture today.  Check my facebook page for a picture.)

After baby girl was born, I refashioned a dress into a nursing top by adding part of a tank top underneath.  That's all the crafting I have been doing.  Well, that's it for me.  Are you doing anything fun?  And if you really want to see how my life is, check out my other blog:   Warning: it's a long post.

Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

I tried something new lately and made tie onesies! They are so adorable!  My friend A showed me the tutorial from crapi'vemade.  P.S.  I love that blog name.  I think it's hilarious.  My onesies didn't turn out perfectly, but it's the thought that counts, right?

So, I can't figure out how to get two pictures on the same line.  Here are my two oneises I have made so far, and I love them!  Like I said, they aren't perfect.  If you want to try making one for yourself go here somewhere.  I couldn't find the exact link, but it's on her website somewhere.  She has a template and easy to follow instructions.  I made the pink one for my friend B, who is expecting a her first baby boy next spring, and the "hunting" type one for my friend L, who just had her second boy! I wish I'd made these for my kids...oh well.  If anyone else would like one of these, I would love to make you one! They are a cinch!  However, I don't have the money to keep buying onesies! So, if you'd like to send me money for a onesie, or just send me a onesie, I will make you one and mail it back to you!  (and any special fabric, that you want for the tie.)  Just contact me on facebook messages.  See you later!

p.s. I hate that snails and puppy dog tails  poem.  I think it's dumb.
