OLW Blog Hop!

Welcome to the One Little Word Blog Hop! All participants should be up and running by 8am Pacific time, April 1st. If you get lost along the way, check out the list of blogs at the bottom of the post.

The prompt for March was all about taking action with your word. My word is ACTIVE and I have definitely been taking action! Things have been nothing but ACTIVE around here since my son was born. We are finally setting into a groove and we have found solutions to his belly and sleeping issues. (I love soy formula and the miracle blanket!)

This is what my page looks like while folded and secured with the string. I added a few more things so that both front and back of each pocket is filled.

This is the front unfolded. I really love my "A" collage. I documented my/our family's experience with enrolling our daughter in gym/play class. It is going really well. She loves it. She loves being around other kids, she loves running and climbing, she loves everything about it ~ except when it is time to go! My husband and I take turns going with her, this way she has quality time with the both of us. This time is all about her and she deserves that. She has been such a great big sister and hasn't had any jealousy issues with the baby. Her energy level has increased though, so this is much needed.

I wasn't too worried about filling in the calendar, especially since I made all of this yesterday! ;) I have been active this month with many things that didn't really need to go on the calendar. For instance, I've been blogging and crafting more, which has been good for my sanity. I'm trying to make better eating decisions by buying healthier foods to snack on. Also, I have been taking Audrey to the play gym and that is a work out! Trying to keep up with a toddler is hard! :)

Enlargement #1. I really love the paint pen on the photo idea that Ali did and I plan to keep using it. This is my baby boy ~ 2 months old. He has me going morning, noon, and night. Love that sweet face!

Enlargement #2. This is the first gym we visited. It was geared more towards actual gymnastics. The reasons we didn't go with this gym was that the play time was a fraction of what the other offered and it was more expensive. Audrey saw a boy doing this and went right for it. FEARLESS. Love that girl!

I hope you are keeping up with your One Little Word and that you find inspiration along the hop today! Jill is next on the hop.

Happy Tuesday!

It's been a struggle to find time to scrap but I finally finished a new layout with my baby boy in it. Hooray! I got to ink up some of my Ali Edwards stamps ~ Sweet Baby, Studio AE Feb, Smooch, and Love Always Wins. Check them out at This layout is inspired by one in the latest CK magazine.

Isn't he so sweet?!?

New Hand Made Goodies by Lisa Leonard

Sorry for my absence as of late. Things are still a struggle with the new baby and his belly issues. Poor lil buddy. It seems that Soy formula and some apple juice daily is helping but he still isn't normal. Everyone is lacking sleep these days which has kept me out of the craft room.

Luckily, I still have some internet time! :) I'm really diggin Lisa's new goodies at Check out all the awesome stuff she makes! Lovely necklaces, decor and more! I've ordered a few necklaces from her and I absolutely love them.

Have a crafty day!
