I have always liked doing projects...just ask my mom, she can attest to that. (It may have been the bane of her existence when I was a child.)

Something about having a new home has really unleashed a beast in me. Poor Josh. But I am loving it.

And then, add to that my new addiction to Pinterest (a site that gives me LOTS of ideas of things to create). I may or may not be totally obsessed. 

I have promised pictures of some of my projects to a few people so, here they are:

Dal had a boring old dresser that didn't really add much flair to his room. So, I spiced it up. This is my first refinishing project, and it may have unleashed a new beast.

Here is the before:
And after. As you can see, I need to add some paint between the orange and green drawers. Didn't realize that part needed to be covered.
Also for Dal's room: I built this from crates on Joann's
A couple of Halloween decorations: Did this one on a whim after seeing something similar in a store. Mine is cuter than the store's. :)
This idea just came straight out of my brain:

A cute candy corn dress I made for a friend who just had a baby girl.

And the rock wall we built in our front yard:

Chubby and Bald

Bet you can guess who this post is about just by the title. There is only one person in our family who is chubby and bald...and now he is 4 months old!!! Here's his 4 month pic:
I'm not going to post all the other pics in this post because they are just 2 posts ago, but you can click here if you want to compare.

He's really cute and he's really sweet and we really love him.

He's pretty much happy all the time. Rarely cries and is smiley and fun.

He loves to stick out his tongue. 

He looks at me like I am the most amazing thing in the world.

He is starting to almost roll over...but it might be a fluke. He did it twice today but it may have been just luck. I am not sure he is fully capable yet. That's from back to tummy rolling. 

He has chubby cheeks and a double chin. And is bald as can be still. So, we tried on some hair today:
  He's not so sure about it. :)
