Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on}

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

Well, here is a photograph from the past! This was taken back in Oregon when Little L was still a baby. Oh how the time really does fly! I swear it is related to crafting, though. Since I can't actually make anything with my hands right now, I am crafting in my mind. I want to add a cradle veil to this Moses basket stand for the new baby. You can see pictures of what I mean here and here. How can I go about doing this? Is it even possible? I am thinking I would need to attach it to the stand itself because we move it around the house quite a bit (so hanging silk from the ceiling isn't an option). But honestly, I have no clue what I am doing here so any help would be greatly appreciated!

What are you working on?! Happy creating!

p.s. - I feel I should put it out there just in case anyone worries about the baby and possible SIDS - we use this when baby is awake and I am unable to wear him/her at the moment. Also nice for siblings to play with baby while in this without fear of smothering (they love one another so!).

I apologize for not posting last Wednesday. I had every intention to but then I just felt too sick. I tried again the following day, but again, I felt too sick. The computer screen and/or moving images just seems to make my nausea worse. I now have a deeper appreciation for those mama bloggers that can continue blogging through their first trimester without missing a beat. Maybe they aren't as sick? I am just one of those lucky mamas that gets severe morning sickness 24/7 for the first 16 weeks or so of pregnancy. It's miserable, yes, but it is also a comfort that baby is hanging in there, especially after some spotting over the past couple of weeks. So if I can post even just two times a week right now I will take that as a small victory! I am praying that the Earth Mama Angel Baby Morning Wellness tea and Nux Vomica (homeopathic remedy) I just ordered might help, even in the smallest amount.

I did manage to pull myself together enough to make our biweekly grocery trip to Boise last Friday. Meal plans are out the window right now considering I can't step foot into our kitchen, let alone cook. But I wanted to come and help pick out some simple meals Kevin and/or K (my heroes!!) could make that wouldn't make my stomach do flips. Of course, these meals are far from our normal routine and are mostly frozen ready made items but I think we'll survive (he,he).  The grocery bill had me taken back a bit. My goodness it's a lot more expensive to buy ready made food! But again, I have to remind myself this is just a small moment in time and it soon shall pass.

The girls wore their rainbow dresses I made them for Christmas up to Boise so I took the chance to finally get a few photographs of them. I can tell by looking at the photographs that I was not feeling well because they are rushed looking (and they were!). Oh well. At least the dresses are now documented right?! Rav notes here.

How was your weekend?

P.S. - The fox and deer you see in the first photograph are on the coolest climbing structure ever!
