What better way to start a new month

than with a new baby!

Introducing the newest member of our family, Charlie Brian Paul, born May 1st at 1:00 AM. 8lbs and 5 healthy ounces of pure sweetness!!!

O’ my goodness he is adorable!!!

Charlies dad, my nephew, is in a band called “The Noise”.  He’s the one playing guitar on the left.  Yes I am a proud aunt / great aunt!

The lead singer in The Noise is Ian Blackwood who just happens to be the brother of Sarah Blackwood from Walk Off The Earth.  I’ve included links so you can check them out.  So much talent!!!

So my creations this month started off with with some fun stuff for Charlie.

I grayscaled some music notes on my printer and podged them onto wooden blocks, then added the initials with vinyl that I cut on my cricut.  They’ll be a fun way for Charlie to learn to spell his name one day.

 

This tiny little jean jacket caught my eye.  I could picture The Noise’s newest and most awesome fan wearing it.

I painted the band logo on the jacket with tulip soft fabric paint and for Charlie and his sister I made an “I Love Charlie” tshirt, a matching headband and the onsie using steam a seam and fabric paint.

I finished my 3rd sign in a series of 4 that I am adding to my Etsy shop.  Life is Cool by the Pool is available with or without the heavy duty plastic pegs for hanging towels.

This door knocker was an Esty order.  No Boys Allowed Except Daddy. Love It!!!

Here’s my “summer” letters and my tipsy pots in my garden.

and these are my new form of creativity … YIKES!!!  not really yikes.  I did alot of research on these pupsters before I invested in a pair for me and my daughter.

I do agree. So far, so good even though I’ve only used them a few times.  I was able to do a few laps on a track that I wouldn’t have made 1/2 way around with runners on and nothing hurt the next day.

Now I just need discipline and time!

Anyway 😉

** Steam A Seam 2 **  I am a big fan!  It’s so easy to use,  you just iron it on.

I appliqued these little onesies to match the pink and purple tutus for the twins 1st birthday.

They ironed on so well I didn’t think it was necessary to sew around the edges but had I wanted too, I could’ve  without gumming up the needle.

 I’m pretty sure I’ll be working on more projects this year with steam a seam. It’s fun!!!

 I crocheted this blanket last year and set it aside waiting for a baby boy to come along.  I figured if I had to, I could get away with adding a pink ribbon that would’ve made it suitable for a baby girl.

As you can see pink was not necessary.

I was able to stick with the blue plan. I finished it off with navy blue ribbon for my new great nephew Sam.

Isn’t he adorable!?!?

This is an Etsy order for some letters done in a light yellow that will sit on the guest sign in table at a wedding.

I love the shade of yellow she chose.

I think I will be adding a section to my Etsy shop this year for glass decorated with vinyl.

and I can’t  forget this … I received an Etsy order for a chef clothes peg.  The customer wanted a female chef with shoulder length dark hair and a side part.  I can’t draw worth beans so it was a bit of a challenge.

She said she liked it so off it went to sit on a counter somewhere in San Diego 🙂

Anyway 😉
