Beard Beanies

 It's been months now and I just realized that I completely forgot to do this post! I have not even made an update in this blog for months and it's about time that I get back into this. About four months ago my husband and I had our first baby and for kicks and giggles we decided to get some fun shots. In order to do this we needed a beard for me and my son so that the whole family could match!
WithLoveByCole makes all sorts of cute beanies to sell on her Etsy shop. I could not resist ordering these! I am a little particular about some things and I felt that our beards must match my husband so I asked if she could find yarn in that color. She did just that. They turned out fantastic and gave us some hilarious pictures. Our little guy looks like a cute little smurf here. We will have many more great pictures in the future with these I am sure.

New Year

So it has come to the year 2013! And without all that drama from the movie 2012. Thank goodness for that huh?

When I was younger I thought that new years resolutions were a good idea and I always tried to put together a list of 10 things to accomplish or do better during the year. Then I realized that I do not work that way, and I figure more other people don't either. So, what I do is keep in mind each month of the year what it is that I can accomplish for that month or something that I really need to buckle down and work hard on.
So for January I already have a couple of small things that I need to accomplish and two of those things are drawings that I have been working on for over a month now but have not completed!!

So lame, I know. 

So, today I am sitting in front of the computer with those two drawings sitting right in front of me, mocking me for being such a slacker. If I really took the time to work on them I could finish them both today! Will I? Probably not, there are too many cool things to find on Pinterest and StumbleUpon.

I also don't want to make any long term resolutions because in just a few short months I am going to be a mother! I am super excited but I am not going to fool myself into thinking that things will be the same afterwards, so I am not going to make any concrete plans this year. Smart huh? Maybe. But I hope I can find things to do to keep me from getting bored at home - that seems to be the big issue right now since I am trying my hand at not being employed (ha).

Todays Etsy Share:
I added these to my recent Treasury Spring is Coming because quite frankly they are great looking and I wish I had some! The item can be viewed here. There are so many great things on Etsy it just amazes me sometimes, and it sure has grown over the past few years.
