Action Kivu Fundraiser

I don't usually do this, but this fundraiser just touched my heart.  Check out handmadebyalissa to see how she is raising money to help women in the Congo learn to sew.  These women are victims of rape and and other horrible war crimes that I can't even begin to imagine.  It just reminds me how blessed I am to live in the United States.
Take a minute to look at this blog, and more importantly, say a prayer for the Congo.

coming soon...

I've been really bad about posting lately, for several reasons.  We had a 2 year birthday party, some really great stuff going on at church, and just the business of life to keep me crazy.  However, the main reason I've been away is that my sewing machine has been in overdrive...

It's probably hard to see from the photos, but I've been sewing about a bajillion burpies, nursing covers, wipes cases, etc. to put in a new store here in Shelbyville!!!
Under The Sun is a great new shop that opened a few weeks ago downtown.  If you live in the Shelbyville area, stop by and check it out.  They have lots of great, affordable gifts and items for the home.
AND the best part for me is that as of yesterday, they carry my products!
More on this to come...
Have a great weekend!

With the help of my Mom (thanks Mom!) I developed a little logo for myself.  The top part is actually the logo.  My blog address is there because I've been using these as hangtags when I sell something.
You'll have to use your imagination to remove the bottom line.
Here's another view:
I am NOT a professional graphic designer.  I repeat.
If anyone has any suggestions, PLEASE let me know!  I just really cannot afford to pay someone to design something right now.
Also, if anyone can tell me how to get the Mama Bird part on my blog header, I'd appreciate that too.
What do you think?

It's really hard for me to believe that two years ago we were doing this:
Or, actually, 2 years ago, I was getting ready to push out a baby, but no big deal or anything.

And now, we have this:

Or actually, lately, we've had a lot of this:

and this:

I guess we need to get used to this, right?
I got a update today entitled "your 2 year old, handling big emotions."  This could get interesting.
To be honest though, Mama Bird has big emotions today, too!
Happy birthday to my baby big boy!
