I'm still here and I'm still crafting

i've been gone awhile (i guess that's what happens when you have a baby). Erica, you amaze me with all your crafting. i don't know how you do it. i thought i would share some of my most recent crafty projects. first, i made oliver an alphabet book/scrapbook. i had the cardstock letters and decided i could make a cool book about the alphabet and oliver. i don't know why the pictures are turned. i tried it twice but i think you can still get the idea.

next, i made this fabric book, again for oliver. this was so easy. i bought the fabric in east aurora.

Finally, this project was inspired by the choo,choo blanket (AKA thomas the train blanket) that nonna made oliver. we were in joann fabrics getting nonna a gift card for her birthday and oliver found the Nemo fleece. how could i say no to that cute little boy? so one side is Nemo and the other is cookie monster (another favorite right now). this fleece tie blanket was so easy, i couldn't believe it. i made it in less than an hour. crazy.

i hope you enjoyed my return to our fabulous blog. i'll try not to be such a stranger.

This is what I did yesterday. The watch is an old Bulova given to me by a red headed high school boyfriend. The chain is a flea market find and the dangles are from necklaces I already had . Is it wrong to use my diamond neclaces like this instead of wearing them on seperate chains? I quess I can undo this and return them to their proper places where they will probably get stuck in the back of my jewelry box and be forgotten.

How is everyone? Me, I'm longing for spring. In other news I joined a real gym and am questioning the sanity of my decisions. Maybe the second week will be easier?
