I’m Back

So I know that it has been awhile, but I am back. I have been really busy lately with two jobs and not feeling very well. Now both jobs are done and I am feeling better, I am ready to craft and blog all about it.

I have some very exciting news for anyone who hasn’t heard yet…..


I am having a baby boy in mid November. This is why I haven’t felt the greatest, but now I am in the clear for a little while. Nick and I are so excited, neither of us can wait. We have compared this to waiting for a Christmas present that you know your getting for 10 months. We will not discuss names with anybody or tell anyone the exact due date, as we want those for just us. Don’t worry everyone will know when the baby is born right after it happens.

I have lots of ideas of stuff to make for myself and for baby, so I figure I better get started. Here is my list of things I want to make or try to make:

  • Diaper bag
  • nursing cover
  • baby towels
  • burp cloths
  • portable sleep mat
  • wipe bag
  • receiving blankets
  • bibs
  • blankets/quilts
  • dirty diaper bag
  • diaper covers (we plan on doing a cloth diaper service)
  • toys
  • clothes

However, I have a whole list of things I want to make for Christmas this year, but Nick and I are in debate about it. He thinks that we shouldn’t buy do anything for all 9 of our nieces and nephews as neither of us ever received anything from our aunts and uncles for Christmas. I think I could easily make them all something small and call it good. So why don’t I ask you:

Should we give gifts to each individual or should we just do a family gift?

Comment and let me know what you think.
