Happy Easter!

Hallelujah he is risen! Today was such a good day for the whole family we got to spend quality time with each other on this celebration of our savior rising from the dead after saving us from our sins on the cross.

It really made me reflect on my life and how I can try to be better. There are do many parts of life where I fall short and all I can do is try to do better and pray for the guidance to do so.

I hope everyone had a good day!

Last Minute Easter Ideas

There are SO MANY different ideas out there for every holiday, but I just love the bunnies and chicks and pastel cuteness of Easter. The celebration of new life, of Jesus rising for the dead, and of human salvation is just such a special time. Here are some of the quick projects and ideas that I really liked and I hope you like them too!


























Cute right? And so quick and easy, my type of project.

Good Gracious

It's really easy to not blog. When you're just living life and not documenting everything, it's easy. I'll be honest, I've been really lazy lately with my shop and the blog and Facebook and pinterest and twitter. It's been a break that I really shouldn't have taken because I'm not an established blogger or shop owner and that's not something you can just stop and start without looking unreliable.



So, I'm here to say that I'll be here every week at least a couple times a week. I'm not going to commit to every day just for the simple fact that I have to be there for my kids more than my blog or business right now while they're still young.
 
Another thing I've been thinking in is starting to take my merchandise to craft fairs and shows. It's been a real leap for me to even get my etsy up and running, but now that I'm there branching out to the real world doesn't seem so intimidating.

My kids have been growing like weeds. The boy is finally starting to say words other than just bah, gah, mama and dada. He's been saying hi and no and yay, even Addy :) and of course grandma which isn't surprising considering what a big grandma's boy he's becoming.


The girls are so fun right now, they like to put on concerts and dance recitals for us. Popular songs include Mary had a little lamb, twinkle twinkle, ABC song, and old Mac Donald. And of course every dance recital is entirely ballet, because they're both ballerina princesses.

Birthdays, Anniversary's and Newness

My handsome guys

We're always busy and lately has been no exception. 


Dirty Faced Birthday Boy

The month of February is always insane because it's my birthday, my son's birthday, my parent's anniversary, my brother's anniversary and then all the aftermath of presents to sort through.

Yes, I did make his shirt.

Now that all of that is squared away, I'm getting back into the swing of things.

All three kiddos!
I completed 3 new dresses for the Etsy shop, signed up for 3 ads with my husbands employer and have TONS of things in the works that I'll be sharing with you hopefully soon!






I think the last one is my favorite, just because I really dig the bright plaid, it just screams warmer weather! The other two I wanted to be a little more pastel considering that they'd be worn by newborns and it's Easter season so pastels are always a good way to go for little people.
