Aiden's Calendar Continued...

A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I am working on a first year calendar for Aiden.  I already posted the October is August and September.  I am having such a good time making this but it is taking me forever!! :)
I don't know if you can see it in all the Aiden things I post but I have a stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Best of Everything.  In that set there is a stamp that says "All I want for you is the best of everything".  I have used that stamp on everything that I craft for Aiden.  Sometimes it is hidden a little and sometimes it stands out.  I just think that stamp says everything!  As always I am going to end this post with a cute picture of my little guy!  He is such a mini me of my husband!  They are both too cute!
Thanks for stopping by today!

My Cricut Cartridge Holder

Hey everyone!  Last week I took a couple days off of paper crafting and did some wood crafting! I was running out of room to put all my cricut carts so I decided to build a shelving unit that would hold them all with some room to grow!  Each shelf will hold 16 carts.  Here is a view of it hanging on the wall next to my cricut table.
The cartridges used to line the back of my cricut table but soon were stacked every which way so I knew I needed more space.  So while I was at it I also built this wall shelf.  I am running out of room to put all of Aiden's pictures! :)  I really liked how this shelf turned out.  I am doing my best to cover the 1970'swood paneling in our basement.  I told hubby that we should tear it all out and dry wall it so I can paint.  He looked at me like I had lost my mind so I am trying to make the wood paneling work! LOL!

If you click on the picture it should enlarge enough for you to see the pictures of Aiden on top.  Now I can't leave you all without a picture of my sweet little guy!  He has the most adorable pouty lip there is.  I am going to be in REAL trouble when he gets older.  I doubt I will ever be able to say no to him! 

I also would like to ask that you all send out some prayers for my friend Stacy . (If you click on her name her blog should come up.  I also have a link to her on the right side of my blog, she is "love that bug".)  Her grandson was born prematurely  at 26 weeks and he is struggling.  She posted the sweetest video of him and I know all of our prayers will help.  He is absolutely so adorable and he looks like a strong little guy.  Thanks and hugs to you all!

One Last Halloween Post! :)

Happy November!  I can't believe how fast time is flying by!  Aiden is now 12 weeks old.  I really hate how fast time is flying because that just means my maternity leave is going to end.  How do all you mothers do it?  I just can't imagine being away from my little guy all day.  I miss him when he takes a nap and am happy when he wakes up.  I'm going to have a terrible time when I have to leave him.  :(  But I am sure thankful for the time I have had at home with him.
 Below is one last Halloween card that I made.  This is a shape card that I made in CCR using Paper Doll Dress Up.  The card is cut with the blackout.  I made the circle text in Word.

Hope you all had a super Halloween and that your November is off to a great start!
