New York Loves My Cooties!

Ok, sorry it has been so long since I last posted! We have been so busy working around here on the house (getting ready for baby) and since wedding planning season is in full gear, I have been super busy with the shop.

Well, I have some fun and awesome news- My cootie catchers were featured in the Summer 2009 issue of New York Weddings!

I just found out about this when a client told me they found me via the magazine. WHOA! I am in the process of actually ordering the issue, since I can't get one around here.

As many of my readers know, I do not plan on working after I have the baby, so we have been praying that God would bless my little craft business, and He has! We are praising God for this new advertisement- He is so good!

Things That Make Me Smile

Okay, so... I'll admit I've been a little bummed lately. The weather temp is back down again and it keeps raining (don't blame me, I prayed hard), I had some sort of freak food poisoning or stomach flu (ugh), and other various personal issues (we've all got them, right?).

So... sing it with me now-
"When the dog bites,
When the bee stings,
When I'm fee-ling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel, soooooo bad!"

10 Things That Make Me Smile:

10. Amish Paradise by Weird Al (check it, homey)

9. Cake Wrecks (best blog e-vah!)

8. Shopping at Michael's or Hobby Lobby

7. The smell of clean towels (lame, but true)

6. Crossing something off a list ("Hi, I'm Type A personality, and who might you be?" and yes- if I do it and it wasn't on the list, I write it and cross it off)

5. A best friend I love dearly (and who never thinks I'm crazy, or doesn't treat me like it anyways, even when I bare my true heart to her)

4. Family (seems obligatory, but it wouldn't be if it wasn't true!)

3. Feeling my darling child squirm inside me (but not the heartburn I'm enduring :)

2. Greg Beyer (every crazy-wonderful-handsome bit of him!)

1. Jesus' unfailing, amazing, life-changing Grace


Spring FEVER!!!

I need spring.

How about you?

(P.S. In addition to welcoming comments, I have a poll up on the blog as well.)
