I was going through my blog folder on my computer today when I realized I am a moron and totally forgot to post about some super awesome things I've purchased, received, or made.
Pregnancy brain is a real thing, you guys.
We won't even talk about how it took me almost five full minutes to figure out how to plug the toaster in. It's really quite amazing I did not electrocute myself in the process.
So first up is this super cute purse and wallet I bought. I have a friend named Jessica who is pretty much amazing at sewing various things. I met her through blogging, then we became Facebook friends, and I pretty much stalk the Facebook page for her little business, Jess Lynn Designs. I knew what purse and wallet I wanted but I wasn't sure about which fabric I wanted and it was really tough. UNTIL. Until I saw the purse fabric. I saw that first and was like, YES. Yes to it all day long. Then a few days later she posted the wallet and I was like YES, I OBVIOUSLY NEED A NEW WALLET. (And you know what? I really did shout it at my computer so the use of caps lock is absolutely warranted.) So I ordered both.
But that wasn't all.
She even sent a little something for Penelope.
Jess has her Facebook page but she also has an Etsy page. I also ended up buying Olivia a super cute adjustable strap hip purse on sale from Jessica, too. It's a purple tie-dye one that I can't take a picture of because it's in the hoard otherwise known as her room. *sigh*
So THEN. A few weeks ago I had posted this picture on Facebook of tiny little baby sandals that are knit or crocheted. (Honestly? I can't tell the difference so forgive me if I'm totally offending the crafting community. To be fair, I can't sew a button back onto my own pants so I literally have zero smarts.) As it turns out, one of my real life friends can totally make these. And she literally whipped them out in a night and I totally squealed when I got them.
The other thing is that I am out of handmade cards. Which, I know, it's surprising to me as well. I just completely slacked off and I've been in a crafty rut and I just... I'm lame. I'm sorry.
I just happened to be digging through crap on my desk and I found a One Sheet Wonder template I had printed from somewhere and I was like- let me just do this now so I feel like I've done something with a thing I found on the internet.
Except I can't figure out how to put the adhesive into my roller so I'm waiting on Matt. He never feels a sense of urgency in anything so I might have to break out the white trash glue stick like it's 2002 again.
