Well, hello there.
It's been a while.
In fact, it's been so long that my flickr pro account expired,
picnik no longer exists and the user interface of blogger has completely changed.
True story.
It took me a minute to navigate my way around you, old friend.
Oh, how I've missed you.
I've written countless posts in my head, none of them making it anywhere near paper or keyboard, so I really have no proof of them.
Or can even remember them, for that matter.
Whatever, they sounded fantastic in my head.

As always, I've been making things.
I love making things.
Here's the latest of the things that got made:
(And I just love quilt rolls. They are so fun. Like a little swirl of cozy, no?)

This is a custom crib bedding set with crib teethers. 

This is probably one of my favorite color combos. It's so bright and fun, but not babyish.
Well, a little babyish, but not in a regular 'baby' kind of way-
more like an 'I'm an awesome baby' kind of way.
Or something like that. 

These crib teethers were super fun to make.
I used all the fabrics that were present in the bedding set,
then added some other coordinating fabrics from my stash so it wasn't too matchy-matchy.
And I also used mismatched buttons with elastic closures.
I love the end result and should probably make some for Ellie.
She has two whole teeth. 

I also took a horrible picture of the crib quilt,
and it just so happens to be the only one of the quilt itself.
So please, enjoy this awkward and slightly confusing picture: 

Here's a shot of the back of the quilt. 

And the hand-stitched label.

Here's a birdie mobile.


And a standard pillow sham for later when crib turns into toddler bed.
(Talk about thinking ahead!)

That's it for now.
I'm going to ease back in to this old comfort.
I enjoyed my little hiatus, however I'm so glad to get back to this.
It's a nice place for my to empty my head.

And in case anyone was curious, which I'm sure you're not really but I'm going to tell you anyway because I can...
Willow has hair long enough for a ponytail.
This is a big deal in our house (for her).
However, she will rarely never let me actually put it in a ponytail.
She's a strange child.


Willow also broke her leg and is in a cast over her knee.
She jumped from 5 stairs up. And missed the pillows.
She's about 1/4" to short for the crutches, therefore cannot walk.
The knee of her cast has been worn flat, as well as the top of her foot from scoot-crawling all over the place.
She's a trooper.
There's about 1 week left of this cast business and then we're free as two birds with no cast! Yay!

Ellie is getting big too:
She started walking the day before her first birthday.
It may or may not have had something to do with me threatening her to walk before she turned one.
She's a smart kid.
And she still only has two teeth.

She loves clickers, phones, and food.
Emphasis on the food.

Life is good.
What's going on in yours?
Let's get reacquainted.
