Alma 32:41

...Nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life.

Sent two more packages

So I sent off the package to mark 90 days left for my sis-in-laws pregnancy and she recieved it exactly on time! I timed it perfectly! Woohoo! For 90 days I gave her a box with trial/travel sized items in it i.e. vaseline, baby shampoo, disinfectant spray and wipes, baby powder. Did you know that baby powder is good for getting sand off of your legs. It is truly a must have in the beach bag. It's amazing!

80 days should arrive by Tuesday. The theme was Around the World in 80 days. For 70 I am thinking the theme should be items to help her relax or rest... Because on the 7th day even God rested. I may do the same theme for 60 days because we are human and need more rest.

Suggestions on items for these themes and for some themes to go with 50-10 would be wonderful!

Wow! check out the Old Red Barn giveaway!

So I am coveting this quilt and since it doesn't really belong to anyone at the moment, that's o.k., right? Click on the photo to learn more, or don't and give me a chance to win it. :) You can still check out her store and blog and not sign up. :) Oh and family of mine if you want to enter on my behalf I won't discourage it- as long as you send ME the quilt. :)

Sorry I'm a slacker

I just haven't had much time for posting or crafting lately. We're surviving well, adjusting well to 2 kids. I can often get them to nap at the same time so I can take a nap too. Asher is a long napper not a cat napper which gives me much needed one on one time with Kaden too. I have been working on one big ongoing project. My sister-in-law is pregnant and has been terribly sick the whole time. She has toddler boy/girl twins to take care of too so it has been a really hard pregnancy for her. She hit her 100 days left until due date 10 days ago. So I decided to send her a little package every ten days to help her count it down. So for 100 days I sent her 100 alcohol wipes. I've sent her her 90 day package (today is 90 days left). But I don't want to write about it until I'm sure she has gotten it. I would love your suggestions for what to get her. She is having a boy. What themes can I do to go with the packages and the numbers? Thanks!

I learned how to make a sock monkey- well I made a sock monster to start with. :) I used this tutorial.
