Baby Onesie's Project

My big turtle...
My little turtle and...
My froggie

I had such a blast making all these onesies! But, I gotta tell you guys this store while making these onesies. LOL. First, I was trying to calculate how many 12x12 sheets I'll need, since it's the weekend, I'm lazy and grabbed my calculator. I know that I can make 2 onesies on 1 12x12 sheet...with me so far? K...then I thought I was making 18 turtles and 18 frogs, so that equals to 36 onesies. Here's the first brain fart...I went on my calculator: 18+18=36, then went..36 divided by 2. LOL when I saw the answer. It gets more interesting as the day goes on. Then somehow I miss placed my exacto knife...thought I left it in my craft room, not there...went to the living room, not there...remembered that baby was hungry and checked the kitchen, not there...went to the car, not there. OMG I was so worried that I put it someplace weird, texted my hunnie told him be careful when you get home because there's a VERY SHARP exacto knife somewhere in our house. I really needed an exacto knife...went down to Island Scrapbooking, picked up another exacto knife, the correct amount of 12x12 paper and bought a crap load of stuff. Came home and started working on this project. As the night went on, FINALLY finished cutting out ALL the pieces I needed, started gluing things on. Fortunately, during this time I found my old exacto knife that I thought I was under my keyboard. I started to think to myself: OMG, how am I gonna survive when I have a baby in the house???? I can't be doing this kinda of stupid things. But picked myself up and went back to crafting. Lastly I made my BIGGEST brain fart ever. I ended up making 18 one-inch turtles, 18 one and a quarter inch turtles, and 18 froggies. Somehow my brain thought 18+18+18=36! LMAO. OMG, what a night! It's been crazy but so enjoyable to craft ALL DAY LONG! :D

Special thanks to my gf Stephanie Diec for helping me make all of these! It was so fun to craft with you! We definitely need to do it again! :D

OH! Btw, to top it all off...I didn't even make 36 oneies...I miscalculated again. We ended up only making 32. must of been on crazy night, that night when I was cutting everything.

Here's everything I used to make these onesies:
Cardstock: Bazzill White, Bazzill Hillary, Bazzill Parakeet, Bazzill Bitter Chocolate, and a Bazzill Pink (sorry, don't know the exact name)
Stamps: Hero Arts Raindrop Background (S5101)
Ink: Tsukineko Memento Dew Drop - New Sprout
Sizzix: XL Die Baby Onesie, Embossing Folder - Burlap & Swirls Set (656645)
Spellbinders: Classic Scalloped Circles
Cricut: Create a Critter for turltes and froggies
Silver Quicklets

Hope you guys had a chuckle out of my day. I know I'm still laughing.

Happy crafting everyone!

Daddy's Birthday

Last month my papa made a young 74 years old. No, I didn't get that mixed up with 47, he's a very handsome 74. He's my superman. Since his niece and her other half was on the island, the family went and spent the night in Waikoloa. We had a DELICIOUS dinner at Roy's, baby was very happy with everything!

Daddy (left) and Uncle Tom (right)
I love this picture! I absolutely love my dad's laugh and smile.

So the plate says, "Congratulations" there's a story to this. One of James' and I great friends works at Roy's. Every opportunity we have to eat at Roy's we always request our friend. So our friend hooked us (James and I) up with their DELICIOUS chocolate cake, with OOZING WARM chocolate sauce in the middle. :9 Our friend celebrated our wonderful blessing still growing in my belly. Baby LOVED every moment My mom forgot to tell Roy's that it was Daddy's and Uncle Tom's birthday, so we shared the cake with Dad and Uncle Tom.

Me and my hunnie

My family

My dad is a huge golfer! He's golfing every Thursday, (most) Fridays, Saturday, and Sunday. Here's my gift and card for his birthday:
And because we're expecting and I'm gonna cherish every moment when dad holds his grandchild...
The supplies I used (for the card)
Pooh Font Cricut Cartridge
Seeing Spots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

I had Embroidery Hawaii do the "I <3 Grandpa" on the baby outfit.

Well, hope everyone is having a great week. I need to hit the books two exams this week :( Until then, happy crafting!

Handmade Lei's for Donna and Jack

Forgot to post these pictures. Over the summer, I've learned how to make a "Double Pikake Lei". I made two of these lei' for Donna and one for Jack.

I really enjoyed making these lei's, I've actually started on another one right after I had finished these two leis. :) It's something you can pick up anytime and just continue where you left off.

Until next time, happy crafting!
