While my hubby had a day with our oldest Erika, I've enjoyed a sunny saturday with my baby girl Abigail. While I decided to snap some pictures of her beautiful face, she just kept on posing and coming up with different looks on her own. Love this little monkey.
The lace socks was one of my recent project. I saw a picture of the similar onces and had to make some for my girls, especially that lace is so in style right now.

I know Easter is over, even though eggs have nothing to do with Easter, in my opinion, but that a different subject.... any how I currently have for sale a beautiful, colorful set of 5 Crochet Wooden Eggs- $30
Use them as a teethers for your baby, as toys for your toddler, or simply decor in your house.
These eggs are totally natural, and crochet over with 100% Cotton Yarn.
Beautiful, but windy, day spend at the Newport Beach, OR with family and friends. We were able to visit the Yaquina Head Lighthouse and climb up 144 spiral steps to see the amazing light system transported all the way from France.
That week I found some extra time to actually sit down and knit a beautiful POM POM Hat for my little girl. Its one easy hat to knit and I absolutely love how it turned out.
My baby is going to turn 3 years old in August, which is soooo unbelievable. She's never been a pacifier lover, well actually never cared for it at all. But it was the cutest thing when I pulled out a pacifier that I've purchased for the new baby, she got so excited and wanted to take it. Once I've attached it to the Eco-Friendly Pacifier Clip Holder and let her model it for me, she would not want to let go of it, and was walking around house, acting like a little baby. I do miss her as a baby, but every age stage is awesome and I actually enjoy her troublemaker stage right now. :) I mean it....
Take a look at the new, currently available in my ETSY SHOP, Eco-Friendly Pacifier Clip Holders- Beaded
A friend of mine from the Hope Floats, has made me feel special every day of this week for my birthday. I've seriously enjoyed every little surprise gift that I would get daily on my front porch. As if she has been reading my mind and remembering everythiing that I needed or wanted thru out the year. She is a special person, that I am so lucky to have met 10 years ago. Once I am out of ideas for any occasion or a birthday, I always think to myself "what would Nada do?" Truly she is the only mom I know with 4 kids under 10, that is so busy helping others and live to make others happy. I beleive she is a true example of what God ment, when he called us to serve each other.
On the morning of my birthday, before I realized myself what day it was, she was knocking on my door, with the yummy, homemade sandwiches for my whole family, homemade baked goodies and a can of coffee. I would never think of that, and how much a person might enjoy that special visit.
On Monday, my husband noticed a small bag on the front porch, with some awesome, new make-up by Sonia Kashuk.
On Tuesday, was came for some breakfast, and brought another small gift. A unique butter holder, that she purchased on her recent trip to Canada. She is originallly from Canada, and I've always admired the unique, beautiful accessories that you can find in Canada.
On Wednsday, I discovered another small gift bag, with some handmade gardening labels and herbs to match it. See for yourself, its adorable and I already put them to great use in my garden.
On Thursday, I've noticed a curling iron hanging on my door, that I've been wanting to buy. Plus my old one was just cracked after our recent Hawaii trip.
Today, she stopped by again with the most awesome, personalized to me neckalce. Did I mentioned that she handmade it herself.
So please tell me when does this woman finds the time (with 4 small kids) ideas and craftsmanship??? Huge insiration to me and I bet all of her friends.
Today, I bearly slept. I've been experiencing shortness of breath, especially at night, and have a hard time finding a comfortable position to fall asleep. Plus the baby seems to be wide awake and having a party all night long. So I found myself researching and looking up on my phone more about the "Hunger Games" which I did not know anything about. I was just curious what drives so much youth and adults to these book publications and movie productions. Something I have not interest too, not will allow my girls to be part of when they are at that age. **** Its my personal choice and opinion after some research.
So by the time the morning rolled in I was exhausted, sleepy and grumpy. Still having difficulty to grasp full lungs of air, I've enjoyed a breakfast with a great friend of mine, to stopped by to visit me. Since it is sunny out and dry I decided to dress up the kids warm and go to out do some long overdue gardening. I've purchased some tulips that needed to be planed in the ground soon. I couldn't tell you how much my girls and I've enjoyed planing, digging in the ground, killing weeds and watering. I think we've been inside for too long and I really needed that gardening therapy and to breath some fresh air. Even thought its cold out, I love the sunshine and seeing my newly planted flowers and herbs.
My latest project was finally finished today. I love these wooden beads and the uniqueness of it when its crochet around with 100% Cotton Yarn in different colors. This necklace is currently available in my Etsy Shop.
Available colors of yarn.
I've also made some Eco-Friendly Teethers for Babies:

Several things have happend since my last post.
I have been busy being me (most of the time)... knitting, crocheting, sewing and crafting. I'll post the pictures later of my most recent creations. Holidays are always very busy and I've been taking a bit of a break from blogging.
We've recently took a trip to Hawaii to visit my sister and her family and also to take a break from this NW lovely rainy season. (pictures to follow)
The main reason is because, I have not been feeling my best... We are expecting Baby #3....... Due June 8th, 2012.
IT'S A GIRL!!!
Since I've been nauseas, tired, moody, almost at the fanting stage, not able to sleep and every other pregnancy simptom you can think of. (except throwing up.... thank GOD) I just can't wait to meet this little bundle of joy and put these 9 months behind me. I've been feeling great thru out my first two pregnancies with my girls, so this is a bit of a new experience for me. But can't complain too much, the baby is growing, kicking and definatley a happy baby inside of me... so I can' t be more blessed and excited.
