Happy to be moved out of our old place,
but I HATE to pack and unpack.
and to top it off.
McKenzie was sick at the beginning of our week to move,
I got sick the morning we needed to start packing up
and then David got sick a few days after.
Needless to say, when i've had the chance to use internet, which we don't have in our place right now...I've either felt to bad to type (or have had little to no time to write).
Tomorrow we'll have internet! Thank goodness, I'm having withdraw!
And then I'll be back to posting new pieces and giving a picture story of my daughter's first birthday.

Grosgrain: The Lunch Date Blouse GIVEAWAY!!!!
Monday, January 12, 2009
I'm still busy.
Still all consumed with 1st birthday party plans.
I'm trying to complete new pieces for the shop, but it's super slow at this point.
Did a photo shoot of McKenzie today with my lovely friend Erin.
She was so kind to offer to come help me...
so I didn't have to settle for some small portrait studio I don't want to use.
(money is tight)
It went so much better than expected.
There were balloons and laughter.
And the photos turned out super cute...
if I do say so myself.
This is from the end of the shoot, walking back to the car...
it's all that I can show due to family and friends reading my blog
I don't want to spoil any cuteness (full outfit or pictures) before the party.
...all my favorites will be posted next week.
I've gotta finish up favors and other such things.
And later on this week,
friend Jessica is offering up her creativity
and helping me with McKenzie's cake.
I leave you with the adorable cake she made
for her sister's baby shower this past weekend....

I've been super busy lately.
Getting new pieces done for the shop.
Last minute invitation crafting.
And of course trying to soak up and enjoy the remaining weeks of my daughter's first year.
I'm a mushy person, and an even sappier mother.
I've been brought to tears by party preparation, thoughts of party day, moments of remembering her birth and those first weeks, and just watching her and the way her 'play' and interaction with us and others has changed.
She's just growing so fast!
.... Friday Feature will resume next month, and maybe another giveaway too!

Just hours before the New Year:
2008 had some bumps and bruises along the road.
Some very rough times for us.
2008 began with the BIGGEST blessing of our lives, Miss McKenzie Hope.
And that beats out the tough stuff any day!
and this month, our baby girl turns 1. Wow!
Invitations went out to most of the family during our Christmas visits,
but many have not been finished or sent out. oops.
and I've got her shirt to make for her to wear with her fantastic tutu.
...plus a bib.
And desserts and snack foods to plan for....
I got all the supplies early
but somehow putting all the ideas into action didn't happen as quickly as I had planned. Must get on it.
I leave you with a new bracelet. Find it here.
