Baby Journal

So, I started this 2 years ago, and the intent of the project was to be included in a gigantic baby basket raffle for my son's 4th grade fundraising project.  (Each class donated a HUGE themed basket, this one probably had $250 worth of baby goods inside)...Anyhow, that was 4th grade, he is now in, as you can see...I wasn't very fast at finishing it!

In the meantime, I was going to give it to either a pregnant niece or nephew's wife....somehow, that didn't get done I thought I'd give it to my daughter's volleyball coach (still not finished) niece JUST had a baby this spring...but, it was a GIRL....and now, I'm thinking rather than tear the little "boy" embellishment off...I'll wait for some other person to have a boy!

I'm not sure it turned out how I expected it to...but thank goodness, it's done! 

I wish I had a journal book when my babies were that I wouldn't mind scribbles and know, those trips to the doctor, the little things that you know you won't forget, but you eventually do....unless written down....I have little pieces of "notes" everywhere, but have no idea what child they went with, and wish that I had known that one day, I really would want that info to scrapbook!  :)

TGIP Day.....

TGIP Day....

I should post this on Friday, it's sort of a play on words....but, any and every day could be a PIE day!  I created these cards awhile ago, based on a challenge on the BBTB2 blog.  I just never finished them until about a month or more ago.  I sent them to my RAK friends, they all pretty much got something different.  I went crazy in the beginning and was thinking of all the pie possibilities...then picked out my designer paper and cardstock and colors to coordinate these different kinds of pies. 

Pies are something that I knew everybody liked, but wow...when I asked the question on my facebook page....what's your favorite pie....I heard from every long lost friend with an answer!  (I guess people really do read what others post!)  Anyhow, what a fun concept...give a TGIP card, along with a pie to a person who may need a special "lift".  I, sadly, know quite a few people right now, who are facing hard challenges.  Been there myself a time or two...and now it's my turn to be the friend with the shoulder to lean on.  I'm not sure I'll be giving out too many chocolate pie cards though...I've never made a chocolate pie!
