Blue Baby Sophisticate

Hello ladies,
how are you today?

Its finally warming up here in Michigan and i am starting to count down the days we leave to go on a trip to Disney. Lots of things still to get.. i wonder each year where those goggles are i purchase each year for the boys :-) Cant wait to hang out by the pool a little bit and enjoy the sun. The kids are now in a age where i do not feel i constantly need to be with them in the water and have an eye on them like an eagle :-)

Speaking of kids...
One of our friends had a baby boy about a week and a half ago.. she had a really bad pregnancy... so happy for her sweet Andrew is health and she can hold him in her arms. 

 I have knitted her a little cardigan and purchases a pair of pants to go with it. I purchased on purpose not a newborn set because i remember how many things you get in this size and baby grows so fast, i was not even able to put those cute little clothes on my boys

  The size you see is a size 6 month and up. Think it should work out fine for the fall too with a long sleeved shirt. 
I used for this cardigan i used for Camilla's baby's sweater

Here are the supplies i used:

Stamp: Magnolia "Baby"
Sentiment: Papertrey ink
Papers: Maja Design
dies: Go Create, Spellbinders Oval
Charm: Handmade with love - Hobby House

Baby sweater/cardigan:
yarn: Malabrigo Worsted - super wash - Navy
Needles: Addi Lace 5.5
Pattern: Baby Sophisticate - FREE

If you like me to knit a baby sweater for your grandchild or baby, please feel free to contact me at

I would love to do have a reason to make something :-) After my vacation i am going to post a few baby things on Etsy, i knitted in the evenings.

Have a Sunny Day

 Hello friends,
thank you for your visit... Today i just have a simple card to share and please forgive me the weired photos. 
You may have noticed that i am no longer able to post on a regular basis, well the reason for that is that we decided to sell our house. I have been cleaning, scrubbing, reorganizing and also of course buying things to "decorate" your house for selling purposes.
Its a lot of work... we have a small home, 4 people and lived in the house for 11 years. Lots of stuff accumulated, even though i thought we got rid of a lot of bulk when the water damage happened in the basement last year.

Once we are ready for showings (hopefully in a few weeks) it definitely will be challenging with the craft area keeping it clean and tidy. The photo tent used to be in my master bedroom and now i have to build it up and down each time when i take photos - you can tell already in those two shots what a difference it made just because my lamps were not set up right. (i have to adjust the length of the legs again)

These are the supplies i used for the card:
Coloring: Mostly Prisma Color Pencils but some Copics were used as well - face
