Etsy - I love it - but omg it will be the death of me! I found a necklace on there just now that had me bawling like a baby.. and now I'm going to have to buy it.

Winnie the Pooh quote necklace

I know it's silly... makes me miss my children even more!! Today is letter day (the day I write letters to my children who live the school year with their father). So a pretty emotional day already. And close to mother's day... yup.. I'm a basket case!

Curse you Etsy and your cute stuff!!!!

Oh but I did see a cute dog collar I might just have to get too.....

Oh Pinterest has been great for me! Not so great for my hubby's waistline. The recipes I find on there are amazing!

Nope.. the pup never stopped. We gave her to a friend who had another husky mix and voila - two days later she's a normal puppy. She was one of 10 pups with four adult dogs, couldn't cope in an only dog house. So we adopted a 1 year old German Shepherd. She's pretty good, minus trying to eat the odd shoe here or there.

oh, that necklace!

Etsy is such a dangerous place. I want to buy all the pretties.

Sorry you are missing your babies <3 when do you get to see them again?

It's patterned tape, partially transparent. It comes in thicknesses from super skinny to as wide as duct tape.

Um I know what it is Jen (thanks pinterest) so now I am imagining your entire house covered in it because I have only seen it used to decorate
So what do you use it for?

Whiskey-
Oh I bought a set of stamps to do things like that. Not that I will ever do it (thank you again pinterest)!

I only seem to end up on etsy looking at baby stuff or graphics.
I am however crazy pinterest! Altho I don't go on as much as I used to. Love the new secret board option so I have a baby board and dont get stupid questions from people.

whew! I was questioning your taste
I scrapbooked back in 1999 for a couple months before I realized 1) it was a lot harder than I thought 2) I sucked at it

Looking at the sigs I would love to see what your SB look like!

I do both paper and digital scrapbooking, so here are examples of both.(I had to choose ones that were fairly anonymous for public posting, so if you want to see more just PM me and I will share the links to more)



and a digital page
Jen@FirsAve and *Whiskey* like this.

I love that quote! After my loss it was one that really touched me.

I try not to look at Etsy too much, but I recently saw this newborn Yoda hat that I just love. Newborn to 3 months Yoda Hat Star Wars Photo Prop by paulashoppe

I love the necklace. We just bought our wedding invitations off Etsy..I'm currently waiting for them to arrive as they've been on their way with UPS for 10 days!

I'm also a huge Pinterest fan, I do wonder how people ever planned weddings before it existed! I also have a secret baby board, full of announcement ideas, photo ideas, nursey themes, cute clothes. All the usual stuff
