Temporarily sidetracked

Yikes, yikes, yikes...it's been too long since my last post!  Regretably it's also been too long since I've been creative. :o(  I know this blog is supposed to be all about crafting, but to add a little bit of my personal story for a minute, it's been a crazy week!

I am a single mother to a fabulous (almost) 10 month old little boy.  He came 10 weeks early and spent 8 weeks in the hospital, therefore, I'm now a staunch supporter of the March of Dimes.  This past weekend our team participated in our very first March for Babies and raised a total of $1603, so as you can imagine I have been busy fundraising and then making sure everything was done in time for the walk.  It was a great day and I can't wait until next year, but I'm kind of glad it's over.  Phew!

Now I'm going to have to switch gears and focus on my son's FIRST birthday party!  I'm very excited about that too!  I have lots of crafty ideas and will be making the invitations and some of the decorations (hopefully) so I am planning on posting about those in the near future.

I made a few Mother's Day cards, but stupidly only took photos of one of them before I sent them out.  On top of that, I had the brilliant idea, albeit too late, to photograph the process of making the card, so that's my plan for the future.  I haven't put the photos of the card on my computer yet, so until then, here's a picture of my 30 week miracle to tide you over!

I'll update this with the photos and info on how I made the Mother's Day cards when I get a second (and I'm not at work!).  Until then, happy crafting!
