Happy Fall!

The weather is getting cooler and it is nice! One of my projects has been to move my craft room out of the soon to be babies room. I finally got that finished and I can start crafting again! My theme for this years show is Use What You Have. I'm always on the lookout for craft bargains. I buy things that are cheap knowing I'll get around to using them some day. Well this is some day. With 3 babies coming I need all of the room I can get!


I've got a stack of galvanized buckets that I've picked up here or there. They always seem to range in price from $4 - $20. So I've always bought the cheaper ones when I see them. Here are 3 buckets that I started on. The middle one is a reindeer. He is going to have a glittery red nose! I'll post pictures when I've got them done. It's been slow going, but it's nice to have a retreat.

Now the baby news! I had an ultra sound today at 20 weeks and we found out 2 Boys and a ?? Or as the doctor said "and the third one is a boy, no wait girl, um boy, no I think girl, hmm I don't know". So now we get to wait some more... (more importantly they are all growing at a great rate, on schedule and their hearts look awesome!) Of course I would really like a girl, but the most important thing is that they are all healthy. I'm just such a planner / organizer I really wanted to know all three so I could get going! Well hopefully that 3rd one will show off it's plumbing at the next appointment!

What wonderful news!!! Oh that they are growing well and healthy. You are doing a great job. I understand you like to plan but a surprise now and then does the soul good. The buckets are comming out great. I could tell it is a reindeer.Are you making these for craft fairs?? I was just thinking about the amount of work and lifting goes into the fairs!! I hope you have a lot of help. Keep up the good work taking such good care of those little Angels.

Thanks Audrey! I only do one show and it is made up of a small group of ladies. http://handmadens.blogspot.com/
They already know I might not make it to the show this year, so they'll take care of my stuff for me! I am always excited when I go to the doctor and find out that they are all doing well and growing on schedule. It's a relief! Thanks again!
