"J" and Pinterest

Ah, I see that Blogger has decided to change some things.  So hopefully I can post from the computer I work from. new new addiction...shall I say more?  I love it!  I love the inspiration I find!  But it's awfully dangerous.  DANGEROUS!  Have I mentioned before that I'm an 'all or nothing' person?  Well, the hardest thing for me about Pinterest is that I want to live in reality.  I don't like pinning things that aren't attainable.  I don't see the point.  Does that take the fun out of it?  Probably.  Yes, I do have a board labeled "Dreamy White Kitchen" where I collect ideas for a kitchen remodel that may happen someday.  Someday.  So I try my best to stay in the realm of reality.  I guess my thought is if I can't have it, why pin it?  Haha!  I know, I'm so boring, right?

So the very first thing I pinned was something attainable.  I just fell in love.  And so my love affair began and one click on an Etsy link and I was smitten.

Peggy from Letter Perfect Designs was amazing to work with!  I had ideas in my mind and she had color combos for me to choose from.  And so after many conversations back and forth on Etsy, I arrived at my decision:

I don't think my photo really does justice, so you will just have to come and see it for yourself (haha!).  For many years I've been in love with the letter "J", and now we all know why.


My sweet baby J.

Anyway, I'm loving this new addition to the walls of Jeralyn's room!

Pink Ruffle, Tie-Dye Baby, and Beautiful

Yikes!  It's been almost a month since I last posted.  Thanks to my other computer not wanting to blog regularily, the process takes a lot longer now.  Sorry about that!  I will post 3 pages to make up for it, plus I'm not sure when I will get to this again.

I'm not used to being "behind" on scrapbooking.  (I hear that chuckle)  I do what I can when I can.  I'm many weeks behind on Jeralyn's baby journal pages.  I have the journaling and the pictures, but not completed pages.  Oops!  And 2011 pages are getting lost in the shuffle.  So does creativity.  Although I have been creative in other ways.  I've been working on a lampshade project.  I've been knitting.  I sewed something for Jeralyn today.  So I guess I have been creative.

Love this page!  I absolutely LOVED the pink ruffle shirt on Jeralyn!  Adorable! 

Same thing for the tie-dye! 

And this picture just needed to be on it's own, big and bold!

My mom came for a couple of weeks to help me with Jeralyn since I was on weight lifting restrictions.  It was so great to have her here, but so sad to say goodbye.  I hate goodbyes!

Well, I must get the baby ready for bed.
