Keeping Busy

::twiddles thumbs::

I apologize for the lack of updates lately, but the truth is, there’s been nothing update-able going on.  We’re still waiting for our license. still.  <grumble> So, I figured I’d share what I’ve been doing to keep myself busy in the mean time.  

Remember that pesky old bird project? I decided to pick it up again because the nursery really does need a few more decor items.  I’ve successfully made three more birds.  They don’t rival the perfection of the birds in that magazine pic (Martha, I am not), but i’m pleased considering the outcome of my first.

Up next was operation baby clothes.  We’ve been slowly building our clothing collection thanks to irresistable sales and generous friends.  But they were still lying around in random bags and boxes.  So, I spent an afternoon washing all that needed to be washed and sorting them into labeled bins based on sizes.  ::ahhhh::  My once junk pile of a closet is now an organized baby clothes haven.  Added bonus is that I now have a good handle on what sizes we have enough of and what we need more of.

There's nothing like an afternoon of folding baby clothes to give your ovaries an ache.

 Finally, I came up with version #1 of this year’s holiday card.  I always send out a few different versions and I’m still holding out hope that the one going to our closest family and friends will include a little cutie.

  1. Oh, I love the birds and the card! And you are so organized with the baby clothes. We’ve been trying to do that with what we have, but we’ve only washed a few things so far.

    Now if only these people would get on the ball and get your license finalized already. Sheesh!

  2. The birds and the card both look great!!

    Labeled-by-size bins of baby clothes make my type-A heart skip a beat! 🙂
