i've never gone this long without a post

We have been busy with Scout Camp and Cub Camp and Girls Camp and.... you know how it goes. But, I did spend most of my day yesterday in my bonus room cleaning up the area I craft in and it felt great. I did manage to make a few things while it was a complete disaster and that was a bit fun to craft in a room that you couldn't even see the floor, but I am thinking it might be better to make things with a fresh slate too.

My dear friend is having a baby any day. And she hopes that any day is today. Since she has moved across the country and we couldn't throw her a baby shower, we decided to put a Baby Shower in a Box together for her from a few of her friends back here in Kentucky. I am told she hasn't opened all the gifts because she is trying to save them and have something to look forward to after the baby girl arrives. Great for her, but I need to wait to show you a few things that I sent her. I do know that she saw this banner that was packed in unwrapped, so here is the banner I made for her baby girl's room -


And, here's the packed up box - all ready to ship!

Traci - you are the greatest! I did that for her when she was going to have Landon and moved from here to Kentucky! There's just something about her that makes people stop and thank Heavenly Father he let us be friends with her - even if she moves away.
Can't wait to get the word that baby C. is here!

Hey Trac! I finally threw myself the party! Words just cannot say how much love I felt... so many thoughtful things. So many people I love and miss. How much I especially miss my neighbas ;).

As always- all your talents floor me. Thank heavens for your gifts. Thank heavens for you!

I love you! And just posted on my blog trying to express my gratitude... it is way lacking. Just know I send much thanks! The banner will be up year round. And I haven't taken the pendant off!

Glad to see you post. :) What a fabulous idea to send a shower in a box. I'll have to file that one away. I'm always thrilled to see what you're up to next. The colors on the banner are so pretty.

Darling idea! Now I just need a long distance friend to have a baby so I can copy.
Regarding length between posting..it's been 4 months (gulp) for me. I can't seem to get it together--too many things happening and my brain has been in a different place. Trying to get myself organized again! kudos to you for keeping up with it.
