It's almost February....

and I'm getting excited.
Grandbaby Cooper is due in February and we can hardly wait. There was a baby shower this past weekend with lots of friends and family. Charlotte and Jeff are very blessed to have so many people that love and care about them and now, their baby. They received such wonderful gifts -- clothes, diapers, handmade blankets, burp cloths that are little works of art. We were able to find a Moses basket for the baby and I made a cute cover and skirt for it ( I should have taken pictures, I'll take some once the baby is born and will show you then). I love the Moses basket it was just like the one my sister gave me to carry my twin babies in almost 30 years ago. WOW!! 30 years, how strange that sounds, I don't feel that old. ;-)

just a little cozy that I made

I'm also excited it is almost February because after taking a self imposed vacation from crafting for the month of January (which I really did enjoy) I am ready to get back to work. I have been spending my down time looking and being inspired by searching the Internet, visiting blogs, Flickr and window shopping on ETSY . Well now that I am all rested up and full of all kinds of ideas, I can hardly wait to share them with you.
See you in February.....

Are you kidding me CHICKENPOX!!! where the heck did he catch that.
