Still going strong with the digital scrapbook. I am so happy that I am now about to start March of this month!!! I still have some work to do in the middle, like my niece, but I'm real happy with my progress. At this rate I may actually be caught up by the end of the year.

Haven't really had time to sew lately, been spending a lot of time with the family :-) And this past weekend our son decided he had enough of the crib and made a jail break Saturday morning. No bang, thud or anything. Neither one of us even had any idea that he was out, until he was standing in our doorway. He was soooo proud of himself and had the biggest smile on his face. Just stood there for a second smiling and then just said "hi!". I can't say that I was really shocked, more shocked that we made it that far with him being in the crib. So before that morning I took the front part of the crib off, its one of those convertible ones, and made it into his 'new big boy' bed. Nap time was super rough, took 1 1/2 hours to get him to finally take a nap. But after that he's been taking to it really well. I'm real proud of him. I just shut the door and the past few nights/nap times he plays with some of his toys and then makes his way to the bed and goes to sleep. Tonight he cried for about 2 min and then crawled into bed. He is loving the pillow though! He's finally getting some use out of the pillow case I made for him a few months back, Seasame Street! So this weekend I'm going to go and try and find some Elmo toddler bedding for him to make it more like a big boy bed.

I'm hoping that sometime this week, in between all the cleaning I really need to get to, I will be able to find some time for sewing. I have a project I need to start & finish before the end of the month! But if not I'll try working on it this weekend, if I don't get called into work!

Well WOW! Its been a long time since I've posted. I've been super busy with life. Working 2-3 days/nights (yup, putting my insomnia to good use and working night shifts and loving them!) a week and taking care of a very active almost 2 year old.

I've been very busy in my 'new' sewing room. I have a folding table in the guest bedroom that is now my temporary sewing room, I'll be moving it all into my bedroom eventually.

Since I'm so very far behind on my scrapbooking I thought I would try and new avenue of doing things. I'd been giving some serious consideration to digital scrapbooking, easier and faster way of doing things. So to help my decision out, I actually WON a digital scrapbook suite this past Sunday!! So I've been playing around with it and I love it!! Its super easy and much faster than the traditional route. Plus its something I can do at night in the living room and stay in the same room as my hubby! FYI: the scrapbook software is the MyMemories Suite . I really like it and it would of been worth every penny plus more if I

had paid for it! Another plus is that I don't get super messy while doing it, lol.

As far as my sewing projects go I've been pretty busy! I made my son his Halloween costume, will have to redo the shirt as its already getting a bit snug but I'll do that next month.

I also made a pretty cool looking purse for my mom for her b-day, pictures only after she gets it!

Plus this weekend I finished my first button down shirt, and the best par

t is that it totally fits the little man with some room to grow in!

So that's it for right now, hopefully I'll be a little better about keeping up with this. I'm planning on doing some more digital scrapping this long weekend and also playing around in the sewing room of course!!
