My Creative Space

*head on over to kootoyoo for more incredibly abs gorg creative spaces*

I've gone crazy for booties...

Baby booties, that is! What were YOU thinking?!


And I've got at least 4 more pairs cut out and ready to assemble. I love love love this pattern.  Aimee from this cute blog gave me permission to sell these beauties in my shop.  Ever since then, I've gone a litte nutso cutting and sewing them. For good reason too - can you even STAND how cute they are? I've got to get some patience and not take pictures on cloudy days so that I get some better natural light. These pics are passable, right? 

In other creative spaces, I'm taking a break from baking. For a few weeks, I was baking something yummy almost every day. However, I found that I was eating most of it too. Not a good combination. For my own protection, I'm taking a break. Sorry Joel. Maybe some day I'll have enough self-control to not eat every piece of brownie, scone and muffin.  Pray for me. Ha!

Do you know what's really awkward? I just realized the other day that I have to tell people Haven's name at least twice. Maybe they think I'm saying Haman? Not cool. Sometimes I even have to spell it. I get some really awkward  responses.

"Oh! Well, isn't that interesting?"
"I've never heard that one before."
"What's his name? Really? Why?"

Ok, I never got that last one, but it seems like that's what people are thinking. It's ok, I don't mind. Gives me something to laugh and blog about.

HAVEN.  A safe place. A peaceful refuge. That's what he is to me alot of the time.  He's such a happy, smiley baby, who already loves life and you can tell.  On a particularly whiney day (from me, the kids, or both), his smile and sunny disposition is like a breath of fresh air. I love my little Haven. Yes, that's H-A-V-E-N.

He he what a little cutey! No wonder you call him that. Talking of cute things, no wonder you can't stop making those beautiful booties. They are the best.
