More New House

That's what Michelle calls it. Our New House. She loves it here. It's so exciting to her (at least one of us is excited, right?)
As I promised, here are the rest of the pictures. The upstairs. Ready for this?
Okay, here are the stairs. Very steep, although not quite as steep as our Alvord house. And here's Michelle looking very excited to be in this picture. :)
Here is Micah's room. Remember, ugly carpet and walls? I wasn't kidding, was I? I put some stuff on the walls next to his crib, and it looks a little homier now.

This is Michelle's room. Very cute- Pam had done some freehand painting a long time ago, and it gives it a really girly feel. I love the soft carpet. How do you like her big girl bed? That's her New Bed. She loves it.
Here is the store room off of Michelle's room. When we first started putting things in it, I didn't think we would use all the space. Now, guess what? It's full.
Well, that's the house. Enough room for us all, anyways. What do you think?

Okay, now onto the crafting side of things.
I finished my second crocheted flower today. Except, the pattern only called for five petals, and I ended up with six. Hmmmm. weird.

I also got three cards done in the past few days. I made them for a purpose: one of my friends from church, Heidi, just had her 3rd baby. I wanted to make a card and a little something for her, and this is what I came up with.

She had a boy, so I wanted to use some greens in the card, and I added a dash of purple just for excitement. I have never used this stamp, either, so that was very exciting. This card was for a sketch challenge for Verve Stamps' May Release party. I threw it together quick while Michelle was running around.


Paper: unknown plaid, always artichoke, elegant eggplant

Stamps: feet from Hobby Lobby, Noteworthy, Bundle of Joy

Ink: always artichoke, elegant eggplant

I also wanted to make her a few CAS (Clean and Simple) thank you cards that she could give to people who give Peyton gifts. I made four in green and four in blue. I LOVE them, and I want to make some more. I was inspired by someone on Splitcoast who made a CAS card.

And here's the blue version...


Paper: gable green, brocade blue

Okay, that's everything. Thanks for stopping!
