Has it really been 2 weeks?!

I can't believe how long it's been since my last post! I am still here, I may have a fried brain and on the verge of a complete breakdown, but I am still around! Life has not allowed any time for crafting right now, but I do have some fun things to share.... My baby is now 1! I'm sad by this. I feel like I didn't enjoy all his babyness while I could. However, he's a blast! I love watching him sword fight and play chase. I love the "drunk" looking walk and the interaction. I just can't believe how quickly time is going by with him!
The 2nd issue of Living Craft just came out. Can I tell you again how much I love this magazine? Here's a snippett of what you'll find in this one:
Super cute and easy knitted bunnies. They're just made out of a rectangle. I have these on the list of things to try.
Sweet little fairy dolls, also knitted and very tiny.
And a needle felted chime ball. All sooo cute! Also in this issue are felted butterfly wings, a story with needlefelted characters to go with it and spotlights on organic cotton farmers.

I've been waiting for this issue of Home Companion. Heather Bailey treats us to the cutest Mother Daughter Chic luncheon. Included are:
Adorable feed cones displayed in a cupcake holder
My favorite chic placecards

And adorable bookbags with ruffles as party favors. Can you ever have too many ruffles? Plus check out all these colors! I love blue and green together. It's so Springy and cheerful, I can't wait for lazy summer days, waking up to open windows and birds chirping. Letting the stale air out and the fresh air in. Playing at the park..... I'm off to look for a picnic basket on ebay. Hopefully more posts this week!

What a beautiful babyt. I thought you only had older children! We made one of those bunnies from Nature Crafts. I have had more luck with bigger needles and yarn. They are so cute! I will certaibly check out the other mag.
I totally know what you mean about the feeling of "missing" the first year. My daughter's first year is a blur. I think when there are other kids, it is just hard to devote all of your attention to every little detail.
