Hello all. Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. Not only did I do a ton of crafting this weekend for Xyron, but Elias got a little cold! More on that in a minute…
I don’t think I can share all the projects I made for Xyron this weekend, as they are for upcoming magazine ads, their website and QVC. But, I do have a few other crafting items to share.
This is a layout I did of my sister and Elias. The pictures are from when we went to Wisconsin a few weeks ago. The layout was designed using a sketch from this book. Sketches are a great way to get a bunch of scrapbooking done when you don’t want to have to think as much. 🙂 Sketches are also great for beginning scrapbookers. I highly recommend this book. It is very easy to use, is divided by tabs based on number of photos and contains lots of sample layouts. (click on the layout to view it bigger)
As some of you have commented, I have a layout in this month’s issue of Memory Makers magazine. I was so excited when I opened the magazine and saw this page:
I also recently signed up to be an affiliate for Scrap In Style TV’s Boutique, and you may have noticed their adorable banner ad in my sidebar. This is my favorite website for ordering the latest and greatest scrapbooking products. In addition to their fabulous boutique, they offer tons of inspiration, online classes, a weekly webisode and an awesomely creative community. Domestic shipping is just a flat $5, which is so nice too. Click on the banner and check the site out!
Back to Elias. Friday night I noticed that he seemed congested. By Saturday morning, it sounded worse and he had the tiniest little cough. Since then, he has been sleeping in our room in his bouncer (the pediatrician said the bouncer would help clear his sinuses) with his penguin humidifier. Poor baby. He stayed home from “school” yesterday, and Daddy took very good care of him. I love how much Matthew loves Elias. He is so tender and sweet with him. It has been neat to see him come into his own as a daddy.
Today, Elias seemed much better, thank goodness. We have felt so bad for the little guy because there’s next to nothing you can do for babies when they are that little and they don’t have a fever! Having to use that darn bulb syringe on him totally stunk too. He would just wail every time we used it.
What have you found to work when your little one gets sick?
Well, I gotta get to work! Have a great Wednesday!
