Knotted Fabric Organic Treated Wood Teething Rings

I saw these on Etsy not too long ago and just fell in love with the idea, and decided to make some of my own.

Pregnancy brings out my inner "Craftinista" (heck yeah I just made up that word, believe it) and let me just say that my brain has been OVERFLOWING with crafty ideas lately. I'm talking pages and pages of sketches and doodles that to any other person would probably look incomprehensible.  Baby stuff specifically, which should come as no surprise since I'm all preggers and whatnot.


As you have probably noticed I just got back in the game of blogging a little here an there after a significant hiatus, so let me get to sharing what the blog has been missing out on and that is just about EVERYTHING I have been doing, including making these teething rings.

At the time of this post these are all available in my Etsy shop, along with more information about each, So go and check them out!

I have a lot more ideas in the works for our baby and for my etsy shop, so stay tuned for that!  Do you have any suggestions for me when embarking on this?  What do you wish you had? What do you love most?  What items for baby are the most meaningful when handmade?

Leave me a comment and let me know!  Help me keep my creative juices flowing!

Preggy Poo Update and Other Whatnots


Is anyone still out there??

Wowzers, it has been a spell (as my grandmother would say) since I have been 'round here.  I hardly recognize the place.  sheesh.

So much has been going on, and I don't even know where to BEGIN explaining my prolonged absence.  All I hope is that y'all haven't broken up with me and my blog for leaving you hanging for so long.

(I like to believe in my own little world that y'all have been waiting around, checking your blog loving feeds and pouting pitifully wondering where I had wandered off to, however, I'm pretty sure most of you are more confused because you don't remember me anymore.  it's fine.... I understand)

Anywho.  Last I blogged I was telling y'all about being all pregnant and whatnot.  Well, things are going pretty great!  I'm feeling much better and that's a good thing and a bad thing.

GOOD: because I'm not feeling sick anymore, and I can actually eat!
BAD: because I can eat again... and it's hard to stop...

I had this issue with both of my other pregnancies, all will-power (when it comes to food) goes straight out the window, and that my friends is a dangerous dangerous game...

We found out we are having a girl, as you can see in my Gender Reveal post here.
And yes, we have a first name picked out, but not a middle name yet, so we are playing our cards close to the chest until we figure that out... sorry for the suspense.

Here's a little collage of where I am in pictures:

I always regret not having many pictures of me during my first two pregnancies, and so I am trying to resist the urge to hide from the camera and take one every week.  So if you follow me on instagram, you'll see a new pic of this ever-growing bump each Sunday morning.

I'm trying really hard to keep exercising and control my food intake as well.  Yep.  That's right.  I'm going to condition this baby to love exercise!

In fact we took this little baby for a run on her SECOND 5K in utero this weekend (no pics from that unfortunately).

The first 5K she tagged along for was the Color Run in Atlanta in April:

Baby's first 5K!

Anywho, That's about all for now.

I've got A LOT of catching up to do on here, for instance we painted and redecorated Bunny's room, and painted the living room and office, and we are working on some pretty cool big projects, not to mention all the ideas I've got for crafting and just wow, so many things.  

Stay tuned for all that madness....

Baby 3 Gender Reveal!

For no reason that we can articulate now, my husband and I were just plain SURE that this baby was going to be a boy.  We had no evidence, no proof, just a belief and a hope....

I did this same thing when I was pregnant with Grace, I was just sure, from the day I found out I was pregnant that this was going to be my girl.  So much so, that I was already adding girly things to my registry well before we ever found out for sure.  

Luckily, that time I was right, I mean, I had a 50/50 chance...

Anywho, the day we went to the doctor to find out baby gender we were ready to just finally be told we were having a boy so that I could start getting things together and making quilts like I did with my other two and so on and so forth.

I made these yummy cake balls with a secret colored center to reveal to the kids what the baby was going to be

literally I could eat white chocolate on just about anything...

So, this is how we told the kids....  

When the ultrasound technician spilled the beans that baby #3 was in fact a girl we were so confused.  We made her check another time and still another after that....

But alas, Baby Girl it is.  We weren't disappointed, we had already decided that we would be overjoyed no matter what we were having, but to say that we were shocked was an understatement.

We had to take a couple of days actually to recalibrate.  We had friends and family practically knocking down our door trying to find out what they told us at the doctor, but we couldn't utter it, strictly because we were still in disbelief of it.

After we got it together and got used to the idea and then excited about the idea we decided we would reveal it to our kids, and thusly everyone else through facebook.

We are Very pleased to be bringing another beautiful little girl in the world to love and pamper!

Have you been shocked by your baby's gender before too like we were?  I would LOVE to hear about it in the comments!
