OBX- Back from vacation

We've been in the OBX for the past week enjoying some down time and lots of beach time.  It's going to take me a bit to download and sift through all the photos (1437 to be exact) when I do I will share.  I do have my favorite photo of the whole trip though.  I want her bathing suit in my size!


I also have two short videos.  Enjoy!

Paper Issues + The Twinery and Stitching


It's Sunday and we have a brand new issue up at Paper Issues.  This time we've teamed up with the folks at the Twinery!  Stop by the PI blog HERE for full details on how to win this fabulous prize pack!


So if you have followed my blog for any length of time you may have realized you don't see much in the way of hand sewing and or machine sewing.  I am a quick instant gratification scrapbooker. Sewing takes time LOL So for this theme I decided to relax and do some stitching.  

Jen Chesnick - Our Family - Teresa Collins

I used my Cameo to draw the large anchor then I used my sew easy tool by We R Memory Keepers to punch it out.  I used the new solid twine by The Twinery to stitch it up.  The collection is by Teresa Collins (Family Stories) I just LOVE it.  




If you shop PI don't forget to grab my code (saychez) or any of the ladies code for that matter and save 20% plus they ship free on orders $60 and up before you use your code!

Parker at 15 Months

Well gone are the monthly photo shoots.  If you want a recap look HERE. I decided to go ahead and take some fun shots of Parker at 15 months.  We went to a park to play and man do this just not show her spunk. 


She is full of personality.  She is super independent and wicked smart.  Far beyond 15 months.  I don't ever full realize it until someone with kids tells me.  I have no baseline for what is what and what she should or shouldn't be doing.  I've always just encouraged her and helped her learn what she wanted to. 



At roughly 27lbs and lord knows how tall she is running.  Full on catch me if you can.  She says around 30 words including a, b, c and 2,3 but not 1.



She is totally obsessed with shoes.  These hot pink ones are her very favorite.  I went to buy a back-up pair and they didn't have anymore, so I settled for a different color.  She didn't seem to care.  I think she likes the noise the heel makes.



She's a little daredevil.  SHe loves to swing and fly and tumble.  After vacation in late September I am enrolling her in mighty tots tumbling.  This could be good or VERY bad.  LOL.



So I think I will post another set of photos at 18 months.  I love watching her grow in photos and videos.  I find myself looking back and being amazed at how far she is come so quickly.  Thanks to all our fans who follow her and share the love that I do for her!
