I found it!

My mojo, that is!! It's been missing for almost a year *gulp* but it finally returned this week in the form of sweet little birds and butterflies. What can I say, pregnancy absolutely sucked every last bit of craftiness right out of me, then Oscar zapped what little energy I had left. Now, at almost 4 months old, he's easing up on me a bit.

So, back to the craftiness... My good friend Karen is preggers with twins, one of each actually and since the babes are going to be sharing a nursery she wanted to do something really special for them. Actually, her nursery is the same shape as Oscar's room (she lives in my neighborhood, right up the street) so that huge wall with the vaulted ceiling has an adorable 12 foot tree painted on it. Since she's having a boy and a girl we settled on bluebirds for the little man and butterflies for the miss. I've made two butterflies and need to hit up my LSS for some blue paper for the birdies. I'll have them all done this weekend and once we get them up I'm sure she'll let me take pictures and share.

That little bit of creativity (and shopping at the Silhouette online store for designs) really sparked my mojo and I have tons of project ideas swarming in my head. I'm actually getting out my handy dandy notebook (did I just say that?? Ari is watching Blue's Clues in the other room... sheesh) to get my ideas down before I lose them. QuicKutz has some super cool word designs that kind of fold in half like a photo corner, I'm thinking some vinyl applied to the wall around a door frame would look pretty neat.

I just wanted to share, I'm so excited to finally have some ideas. It's totally a step in the right direction. I have to clean my house today, I'm hosting game night for several mommy friends here tonight and that means a clean slate to get all crafty tomorrow with no chores standing in the way. Yay!

Other than that, not much going on. Ari got two flu shots yesterday, his second seasonal booster and his first H1N1 so we're hanging close to home today to let him chill. That and the hurricane outside (Ida, she's really dumping on us) makes it a good day to stay in jammies all warm and cozy. I don't really have any pictures to share... next post I'll make sure to have some!
