These past few days have been crazy! The most exciting thing that has happened is...
...my niece Alyla was born!!
My sister Suzanne gave birth to her at 5:02am on January 4, 2011.
I'm writing a post about it, but it's super long and detailed, so it's taking me a while. It will be up soon, though!
I also found 2 great things from Bookmans:
...a beautiful yellow teapot...
...and an carved wooden owl...
Even though Bookmans s a used bookstore, they have random little knick-nacka at the ends of bookshelves. I've never actually bought a book there, just random things!
I was excited to add this teapot to my collection, as I love yellow and also I love the 'squareness' to it that my others don't have.
When I bought the owl dish, it was pretty dirty and grimy and I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get it clean, but alas, I did! I'm going to use it to store all my pins on my sewing table. I have this adorable pin cushion/tape measure, but when I'm sewing I don't have the time to push pins into it.
Speaking of my craft table, I finally built it! Here's the fabric that I used for the top...
I'm going to write a post soon about how I made it for cheap.

I might let Roxi taking over blogging for a while, though, she can't seem to stay away from the computer!
