A few recent projects...

Hey all! I know I royally suck at the blogging thing these days, but here I am with my once a week post ;-) Unfortunately, I just haven't been in my scraproom much these days :-( I always read about people losing their mojo and having no desire to scrap when they were pregnant, and I always thought to myself, "How could that happen? That would never happen to me!!" Uh yeah. Look who is eating their words now lol. As much as I try, I just can't seem to get the motivation, and my poor lonely (messy!) scraproom is no longer calling out to me like it used to. Sigh. I really really miss having that creative outlet, and I do hope my body falls back into scrappy rhythm soon!

Anyway, here is a little bucket I made recently out of Fancy Pants papers so that Chloe could have a place to collect the flowers she likes to pick. You can find the directions here.
Next, I made this sign for the outside of Chloe's bedroom door. She has a bit of a butterfly theme going in her room, so I went with it :-) All materials are also Fancy Pants, and you can find instructions for this easy project here.
And lastly, I took these photos of Chloe the other day and just couldn't resist sharing. She has become such a big girl in the last few months, I just can't get over it! She is sassy and funny and adorable and cranky, all wrapped up into one small package ;-)
I had Noah's Kindergarten orientation last week. Sigh. I can't believe it's that time. My first baby is going off to school. Chloe will be starting preschool, too, so there will be a lot of changes in the Taylor household come the end of summer! Noah will start school, the baby will probably be born the following week, and then Chloe will start preschool the week after that. Should be a wild ride ;-)

Anyway, I hope all my scrappy friends are feeling much more inspired than I am these days, and I hope you all can send some of your mojo my way!!

Nah , I wouldn't blame you in you're not into scrapping at all when preggers ( but then again I wasnt crafty yet when I was so what do I know ! but I can tell you Chinese Superstitons wouldn't allow a pregnant momma to be wielding sharp scissors - as I said it's all surperstition ;) )

Chloe's soo grown up alright !

awwww BIG {{{hugs}}}. I'm not even pregnant but have no desire or calling out to scrap. Maybe it's just the time of year?? I don't see you lacking any creativity though. Love the bucket and door sign!! And you are in for a crazy ride with school, baby is all happening at once but you will handle it with tears and finesse! LOL
