Staying busy.

My summer seems to be flying by already, as June is swiftly coming to an end. We're just starting to get warm temps and high humidity though, so hopefully that means there is still a lot of splashing and playing to do.
I pulled out the kiddie pools a few times this week and found I still fit into a swimming suit. =) {I'm 27 weeks today and updated my pics here if you're following the 'journey to you' pics in my SIS gallery.} I got a cute chinese take-out box with some onesies tucked inside from the owner of, as well as some cute t-shirts for the rest of the kids this week too. I just had to share a pic and say a public-blog thank you!
I know you don't all scrap, but for those of you who do, I can tell you that there is going to be a new Collection coming out in the SIS Boutique on Monday. It's called "Girly-Girl" and it has some of the most adorable papers and items included in it. I scrapped a mini 'wishes' album with it- which you can view here- and I'm looking forward to making a few more things over the weekend as well.
Ava fell in love with the above pink felt flowers as soon as I opened my box of stuff. She took one look at them and then said to me, "Let's go scrapping right now...I'm using the pink flowers first!". I think it broke her heart when I told her they were mine. In fact, I might just have to make her a special hair clip or bracelet or something wearable with one or more of them. It would make her day!
Thanks for so many of you who continue to send me emails and encourage me to share my stories here at Nitty.Gritty. I am getting further and further behind in my replies as a result. I also have found several emails that have gone straight to my spam folder. If you have any sort of website or bloglink in your note, it almost always gets sent to that box. I'm happy to have saved a bunch of them...but just wanted you to know that if you never hear from me, it's likely your note slipped by me. I do read all my emails from my readers and I respond as often as I can. If you write blog or Teagan or Nitty.Gritty. or even buttercream in the subject line, I will be certain to fish it out and make sure it gets read. =)
Have a great weekend!
