It's time for a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches! This week is special because our dear Linda S. is the hostess and this is her very first sketch. Exciting, huh?! Now I hope she won't mind that I took a lot of liberties with it. I totally dreamed up this card one night as I was thinking about the sketch and for once, the reality was even better! I am happy to say that I actually like this one. :) I'm usually my own worst critic, so I probably need to frame it and keep it.
I'm really beginning to wonder how we are going to live without Pool Party. Island Indigo too really. I just love those colors. I mean I guess I can go back to Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy, but I really do love these guys too. Sigh. Change, we can handle it, right? Maybe SU will be nice and somehow add them to the next catalog. Do you like the pinwheels? I love pinwheels and the new die in the Spring catalog makes it so easy to make them! I am stoked that I bought it now. No more trying to punch holes in darn paper; the die does that for me!
A certain someone is growing up way too fast! I think she's teething AGAIN (does it ever really stop once they start?!), so we are trying an amber teething necklace. My husband thinks it's a bit crazy, but I'm up for anything that might help her feel better. She refuses to chew on anything except for her hands and fingers so we are having to put lanolin on them to help with the chapping and redness. She's really enjoying her solid foods and we are having a blast making baby food for her.
