Introducing Eleanor!

Now hang on a second, I thought you said you were getting a nephew. Apparently ultrasounds can be decieving, as I now have the most beautiful and perfect niece.

This is Miss Eleanor:

She was born December the 4th, but I have been too busy staring at her photos and pestering Emily to take more pictures to do much crafting or blogging. But don't worry - the deluge of tiny pink craftiness should commence soon, I assure you.

(possibly starting with a teeny pink bow to girly up that dinosaur onesie - whatcha think?)

But, baby Eleanor does come with a little craftiness already - she was kind enough to model her tiny orange hat before leaving the hospital. I apologize for the blurry photo, but you hate to blind the poor thing with flash bulbs on her first day. If you'll notice in the background, her birth mom is sporting the matching socks I made for her. Love it!

You can't see with all of the tiny hat photos, but she has the cutest little head full of super dark hair. I confess, the urge to give her a baby faux hawk is strong. Perhaps it is for the best that she lives 400 miles away from her Aunt Sarah.

Time is running out!

How's that for pressure? The holiday season is in full swing. If you were planning to make Hanukkah gifts, you're already behind.

You have a week and a half to go for Christmas - if you were planning on homemade gifts, you should be stockpiling caffeine at this point for the inevitable all-nighters.

And if you were planning to purchase gifts, you still need to get a move on - today is the last day for regular shipping with most online stores - including ours.

'Tis the Season to Make Excuses

Fa la la la la la la la la

One more cookie won't hurt...

They'll never know that it's a re-gift...

Everyone's so busy - I can go weeks without posting and neglect to photograph my finished projects...

(are you buying this?)

strums fingers together a la Montgomery Burns


Over Thanksgiving, I finished up making the little orange hat for my nephew-to-be that matches the socks I made for his birthmother. But I forgot to take a picture, so I'll just have to try for a live-action shot after he gets here.

And as the other projects I'm working on are still in progress (what looming holiday deadlines?), how about some more onesies?

They come in a five-pack you know:


(for future reference, freezer paper stencils don't stick that well to areas you have already painted, you may need to clean up the monkey's face a little)

Squirrelly Baby


crap, can't think of another stencil to make, okay how about a Star
