There's a lot going on around the Hanwayink household lately, the most major of which is that there's going to be a baby Hanwayink come early in the New Year (EDD Feb 1). This is one of the reasons I haven't posted much lately... my stampy time & budget has been taken over by baby prep.
I have been crafting a bit lately though, never fear. Mostly baby related, but that's just what seems to be going on with oh, EVERYONE these days. or so it seems, at least.
First up, the favors & thank you cards from my baby shower... I have a slight obsession with cows & cow-related stuff, hence the cow paper & milk carton (which I filled with yummy blue jellybeans that matched the tempting turquoise paper). A special shout out to my tweep, depmodegal (aka Stephanie of Dawson Designs) for sourcing the paper for me in OREGON (pretty damn far from NS!), and sending it out.
Next up are some of the new baby cards I've made for friends over the past few months. The blue & brown card was for friends who had another little boy ... (so many boys around here... including ours!), while the pink & green was originally made for one of J's coworkers, but he ended up not wanting to give them a card (??
) so I used it for friends who adopted a baby girl earlier this month. As you can see, I'm LOVING this baby bundle set.. the buggy especially. SO. Damn. Cute! (the poem on the shower TY is also from that set).
This is the thank you card I made for J's parents, who gave us money to buy the dresser for baby Hanwayink's room. I have to give huge props to Lynn Pratt of Stamp-n-Design for the dresser idea. I modified her dresser to mimic the one that we bought for baby (like this, but in espresso finish). And ya, the baby's bedroom walls are a lovely bright green, so I figured this worked :)
So that's what I've been up to, crafty-wise lately. Thank you cards x 30 (so far - I have at least one more shower to go!), milk carton favors x 20, and a bunch of special babies coming into this world have kept me busy. Apparently there's another major card season coming up of which I haven't even given any thought. Ay Carumba!
