Oh Baby!

It's my sister in laws due date and no baby yet. These are the adorable diaper cakes that I made for her shower. I just loved the ribbon. That sweet pea green just makes me smile! I'll pray for a new niece or nephew for tomorrow!

Candy Bucket Fun

I totally stole this idea from one of my dear friends at church. I just loved the idea of getting a basket full of candy. I have such a sweet tooth and love my milk duds and taffy! Matt and I went to Arizona awhile back to networking and introduce ourselves to some people. I thought it would be fun to bring a small gift to all of them and what better way to help someone remember you then to bring them candy! It went off really well and I had so much fun making them. I was thinking of doing some more and giving them away at my gatherings and crops! I'd make them a little less business and a lot more pink and scrappy!

There are so many moments in a person's life that are unforgettable. I'd say almost everyday there is a moment that I don't want to forget. From Peyton's newest word to Gavin's articulate nature these fleeting memories swirl around me all the time. I try with great intent to capture as many as possible in the best way that I can. In times of stress and uncertainty its hard to pull the camera out and take pictures, it's hard to find the happiness and joy. I try though. I am not saying that I am doing a very good job of it but I do try. I look back at moments like this and smile. I know that these times will come again. I know that I have the greatest joys in life already a wonderful family. As I said sometimes it is difficult to see past adversities that we are facing and I will attempt with much enthusiasm to do it more. It seems that through my journey as a scrapbooker I always focus on the happy moments, but there is much to be learned from the difficult ones. I think I am going to challenge myself in these rough times to capture some of the lessons I've learned, some of the pain people are feeling and what we do to carry on. I'd love to see ideas and pages that do this so please post or email me your links so I can take a look and be inspired.
