Round three would be great in a few months.  I'm still being controlled by a twelve pound baby (yes, he weighs twelve pounds at ONE month - he's enormous!!!) but maybe by then I'll have a bit of free time available (and motivation) for crafting. Cheesy



12 lbs...... thats not a baby, its a toddler  Wink........ my daughter wasnt 12lbs till she was about 5months old (but she was little)......

and I would love to see some pictures of that little boy of yours.... Grin

Okay, okay.  Smiley  Here's Ben!

This is the adorable Baby 4.0 shirt that cjclark made for me in her first swap. Cheesy


Smiles!


And yes, my child is enormous.  I think my breastmilk must be 25% fat or something. Wink  My daughter was bigger at birth than Ben was but she wasn't this big at a month old.  Maybe the feedings every two hours have something to do with it..?

aren't you lucky I can't reach through the screen and nick that little cutie pie.


on another note I found(someone in a swap used this) cereal packets, you know the plastic stay fresh ones.....I kept all mine and washed them out but am yet to try it though I think it would be more food friendly than contact paper( re: not made for food but made for books thingo)

Just a though.

cereal packets are pretty thick too so they should hold up to stitching better also.

I used Mylar recycled potato chip bags to line the sandwich wraps I sent.  I got the idea from here frenchsleepdeprivat ionstudy.blogspot.c om .  There is a tutorial about how to make sandwich bags and tips on what kind of recycled bags work best.  http://www.grafixplastics.com/mylar_what.asp

OMG that baby is adorable!  So sweet!

And thank you all!  I'm trying to make a waterproof liner for a  fabric waste basket ... and now I have lots of awesome ideas.  (Hmm, does this mean I get to eat a big bag of chips?)

yes to cover a waste basket you may need to eat several big bags.  I would be more than willing to help you.

Haha, yeah I noticed that after I took it - that the mod podge was in the picture.  Along with a whole lot of other junk.  My desk is a dreaful mess right now.  Undecided

And thanks, everyone.  I'm absolutely in love with the little fellow.  I did think I would have a girl again but haven't had one moment of wishing he was a girl..he's just so sweet as he is. Cheesy 

I'm having a crafting dry spell right now...but I'm trying not to beat myself up for it seeing that Ben is only five weeks old.  Smiley
