Crib note card.

I made 10 of these for my sister, to give as her thank you notes. They are cute irl. I used ep over the baby and crib and then colored with h2o's. On the inside I used pink ep and it had a shimmer to it. So, I then dusted it all over the card. So, the card has a shimmer to it.

****It's not slanted in real life*****

Gothic Arch: Old School

This weeks challange over at the gothic arch site is old school. Now, my lovely friend Louise from the Most wonderful blog Kard Krazy sent me some vintage images. These alpha letters were in them, so, I knew when I saw this challange I would be using them. I have the little saying for a teacher that I really like. So, I added that with some staples and that is about it. Nothing to fancy.

Today is my wedding Anniversary!!

Well, today is the day I married my wonderful husband. Ohhh, how skinny, how young how in love.....Well, at least one thing is the same. My love for my husband. Being away from him for so long helped me to realize how I could not live without him. I am so glad to be home. It felt good to be in his arms again!!

Doing a little better....Ya'll

Last night went a little better. We went to visit Erica & Elizabeth Dawn, yesterday. When I hold her I just melt. I got a little sad knowing she won't know me very well. I wrapped her up tight and held her till she fell asleep. She was so cozy and she was looking at me and really felt like she knew me. Maybee we are connected. Erica made me laugh saying I should stay with Elizabeth Dawn so that I could get her to sleep.

They are on thier way home today. I feel a lot better. Last night I had a normal meal & actually got some sleep. My mom and I did a lot of cleaning. Her more than me....BUT, I did the cat mess so, were

I am looking forward to spending some time with my sister and the baby today and tomorrow. I have not had much of a chance to be with her. I know the trip was more to take care of things then visit, but I have missed my sister sooo much. I know that her home is here and that is okay. Just wish I were able to travel here more often.

I guess when my parents move here I will have to come every summer. I guess you get used to it. With my inlaws moving away and now the rest of my family. It's gonna just be me & dh with the kidlets. I am okay with that. Being out here made me realize that my home is in NJ. When I first moved there You would have never heard me say that. I missed pa so much.

Well, can't wait to tell you about my night witht the baby.....

I am very happy that we are all safe and sound. Last night a few tornados went into our area and it was not something I was happy about.

Elizabeth DAWN Senecal is here!!

This has been one of the longest days. We got the kids to the hospital at 7:30. Erica & Brian were there with Grampy @ 5:30. She was to be in surgery at 7:30 (she was a c-section)but, life happens and guess what! At 1:15 Elizabeth was born. She is just adorable. I can't wait to show you all pics.

She is 8lbs 12 oz & 20 3/4" long. a big cute round baby. Erica looked great. She was having such an easy time. Elizabeth was already nursing & we are all happy about that.

So, I am an Aunt again. As soon as I got to hold her. I bawled like a baby. This is my namesake. She is my last neice & I am so happy to have finally met her.

I am very tired and can't wait to get to bed. Being away from my hubby is very hard. To be honest I have so much more compation for miltary wives. They are a lot further away from the ones they love.

I will be posting pics and a date for the cards for troops as soon as I get home.

I miss everyone..

Another day in the South!

Hey Y'all. My ds thinks it's really funny to say this in an accent. Yesterday was nice took ds to reb lobster (her fav) for lunch and surprised her with a little shower. We gathered (mostly mom did) gifts from family & friends back home and brought them with us. She got some cute outfits and a few things she needed.

I made a list of things that I need to get for her, like alcohol (not that kind) baby shampoo etc etc..

Nashville is a lot more ummm, hilly than N.J. So, when we got back I fell..yup, fell down the driveway flat on my face. Can you say I guess I was not expecting an incline and I just kinda fell over flat....splat....OF course everyone lol, and so did I but, darn my knee hurts.

I have not been sleeping to well. I did sleep more this morning once Avery was up. Last nightafter he fell asleep I went down to chat with ds & dbil. He came down bawling like mad. He woke and could not find me. So, I spent the rest of the night feeling sooooo guilty.

He has been doing really well. He is having a lot of fun. I don't think I will be able to stay at brownies with my neice today. Maybee while she is there I can go to hobby lobby. They were closed yesterday. Did go to a local scrap store. no stamps but, I got a couple things.

Tomorrow the baby will be here. I can not wait to see her. I wonder what she will look like. I wont be able to post pics untill I return, unless dbil helps me out.

I will try to post daily to keep you all informed of what is going on!!

***don't forget to check out 2pp's (two peas in a bucket) they are having another stamp event and the gallery is soo rockin'.

I am here in Nashville!!

Well, I am in the south. It is VERY different from the shore in the north east where I am from. I am on a laptop checking in.

We were in the car for 14 hours. We stopped to have lunch in Virginia. That was very strange. Oh, and Ya'll is now my sons favortite word. We also stopped for din din at the cracker barrell. The hostess said mam' and sir..It was kinda funny.

The drive was not to bad. The last two hours was the hardest part. I got restless and anxious..

Well, I off to hobby lobby and lunch
