My Favorite Craft Projects

Maxwell arrived May 2, 2011 at 11:45 pm. Just like his brother, Max was quite eager to make his grand appearance and decided to get it all done in three hours. It was an absolutely beautiful (and excruciatingly painful) birth that ended with my husband catching our son and the midwife running in just minutes after.

We’re all adjusting nicely to the new little bundle in our home. Some better than others, I guess. (ugh, sleep deprivation sucks) It’s becoming hard to remember our lives before Max…but then again, that could just be the lack of sleep talking.

I’m still trying to figure out when I could possibly squeeze in crafting (Um, 3 am?) so until I do, I’ll be updating this blog with guest posts (spots still open if you’re interested!), Pinterest links (I’m officially addicted!), thrift finds and other crafty musings.

Hope you stick around and enjoy this crazy adventure with me!

Ridiculous amounts of photographs after the cut:
