Working My Way Back

Hi all! I'm still here. Thank you so much to everyone for all of your well wishes and welcoming words and gifts for our Little Miss Chelsea. She is 6 weeks now and I'm finally beginning to find my way out from under the incredible yet very demanding first weeks of a baby's life. I have a quick moment to post while Chelsea is (finally!) taking a nap. I wanted to show that I'm still in the crafting game. These are a few projects I worked on prior to Chelsea's arrival. Above are some cupcake paper flowers I made for our kitchen table centerpiece. So super easy and fun.

I needed a new wreath for our door and was looking to do something quick one day after work. I bent some wire and ripped some fabric scraps and came up with the above.


And finally, my greatest project to date - here is a photo of Chelsea enjoying the lovely weather we were having a few weeks ago - she has already changed so much since this photo!
Love you all.

I'm surprised you had time for any projects at all, I imagine newborns are a lot of work. Fun work, but still...
