Onesies Iron Ons

I'm so in love with the idea of a monthly photo of little ones where they have a onesie on that says what month they are old! So, I'm making some for a friend who is having a little boy in August. I don't have the onesies yet, but I wanted to share with you the creation that I'm going to put on transfer paper, cause I think they are darling! They are camo! lol And I DID use purple for the boy, because the parents are K-State fans (that is why I counteracted it with lots of blue-for KU! lol)
What do you think?
(not sure what's up with the black background!)
I love designing things like this and I'm thinking of putting them in my Etsy store. Do you think anyone out there would be interested in purchasing either the design or the completed onesies? Just curious if there's a market for any of it. I'll be sure to post a photo of the onesies when I'm done.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a blessed day!

May Magnolialicious Mingle

Good morning friends! Today I'm going to share with you a card I made and a card I received! I belong to a yahoo group called "Magnolia-licious" and we have the opportunity to join what is called a "mingle" which is where you sign up, your name gets mixed up with others and then you send a card to your "partner" It's always fun to get mail and see the awesome creativeness of others!
Here is the card I made for my partner:
(sorry about the shadow in the clouds)
And here is the card I received from my partner:
made by Donna Jean Eno
Isn't it beautiful?!?
I hope you've enjoyed our creations!
Have a blessed day!

We're having a baby!!!

Ok, well, WE are not HAVING a baby, but someone else is and we are bringing the little guy and his brother home FOREVER! I'm so excited! We've been praying and hoping and being patient for a little one to come into our lives through adoption and God has granted us our desire! He's also giving us an extra blessing as we're also getting a 2 1/2 year old, too! Many, many, many prayers have been said for these little guys and we can't wait to bring  them home! (or course, we have to wait for the one to decide he's ready to face this world outside the womb! lol) So, soon, I'm going to be the mommy of 3 boys!!!
While we're waiting for said little ones to be ready for us to bring home, tomorrow our oldest son graduates from high school!!! What a crazy, wonderful week this is! I can't believe how much God has chosen to bless us!
Hope you're having a blessed week as well!

Why am I MIA?

Hi, dear friends who are still reading my blog! I'm so sorry I've been MIA for about a month now! I don't think I've stepped foot in my craft room since I made that last card you saw posted! I'll be getting back to the room soon. I've been in kind of a slump, ya know? I haven't felt good and just felt down and discouraged about the slowness of the adoption process. We are approved, just waiting for a baby to find us! Also, I've been helping with our Mother/Daughter banquet at our Church and last but certainly not least of the things keeping me away.........GRADUATION! Our son is graduating high school next week! We're throwing him a big party next Saturday and it's taken months of planning and now we're in the purchasing stages and making stuff. It's going to be a ton of fun! We're so proud of him!!! He worked so hard this final year to make it happen! Yeah, Zachary!!! Here's a couple pictures of my handsome son:

Have a blessed day and hopefully, I won't be MIA much longer!
