Baby Love

I love collecting vintage wrapping paper and have a particular affinity towards baby prints. The soft sweet illustrated faces and colors are too cute! These are a few of the patterns I have in my stash. The one above is my favorite.


I do cut some of them up. I've used the one above in several gift tags.


And I used this one in this project.


This is another very sweet one!

You may be wondering why I'm showing these baby prints now, well it is because I am pregnant! I've been rather sporadic in posting and in being creative as I haven't felt that great but luckily, it hasn't been half as bad as it could be. I'm due on St. Patrick's Day, March 17. This will be our first child. I guess it was about time to start as I'll be 31 in October!

Karla,

I am tickled pink for you! You and your husband must be so happy. I wish you a wonderful pregnancy and I hope it is the best time of your life. I loved being pregnant!

When you made your announcement that you were in Somerset Life, I thought you were going to announce that you were pregnant then. I was close.

Anyway, hugs and kisses to you and your little miracle!

Sincerely,
Tammy
