I love retro stuff.


That sock monkey next to Crew is from another scrap friend of mine. I am so lucky to have taken up scrapping and more than the fun products, I am thankful for the friendships that have come my way as a result. There are so many amazing, fun, supportive and just down-right talented people in this community. Two years ago I was just starting to grow my list of friends in this realm...now I have too many "scrapfriends" to count. And I considered myself blessed to be among them. Scrapping has truly enhanced my life the past two years...more than I ever imagined it could.
I scrapped an emotional page for the latest SIS Challenge blog...you can see my page here, and participate in the challenge here. There is a prize offered for one challenge participant and sometimes it's nice just to push yourself to see where the challenge takes you. If you're a scrapper, I hope you check it out- for fun or therapy. =)
Now, on to the retro goodness. I consider myself very lucky to be on the SIS Fashionista design team and find myself loving every single Collection of scrap goodies that comes to my home each month. Yesterday I got a package containing the next Collection called "The Homebody" which will go on sale this Monday. It is so fun! There are little fabric swatches and orange, green and yellow papers and a couple of items you won't believe too. I'm not telling you everything about it, but have to say this stuff made me happy. Even Chip thought part of it was cool! And he's a 'tough-sell' when it comes scrap stuff. You can see the inside of that little mini-book here. I think I may fill it with pictures of Crew. He's growing and changing so fast- can you see it in his pictures here?! Even so, he's sleeping {very soundly at the moment} against my chest and I love that he's still small enough and content enough to be swaddled and snuggle up so closely. He sleeps best when he's being held, and I am guilty of holding him far too often and too long. But that newborn scent he has is too much to resist and I have learned from all my other children that it doesn't last forever. So, I am happy to hold him too much and blog one-handed when needed and soak up his "baby-ness" as much as I can. Before I know it these moments will be the "retro, good-ol' days" of my life and I will want them back.

I too am guilty of holding my new baby far too long and too often. But, as a new mom, I've heard from every seasoned mom that it goes by too fast, so I am taking it in guilt free. And since she is only two months and a week, no one says anything but "enjoy every moment." And I will.
