The New-ness Abounds

Hi y'all! Did you have a good weekend? I hope so!! Mother's Day has always been an odd holiday for me... long story. But in the past several years, it has gotten better. And with having foster kids the past two years, it's definitely brought with it more special meanings than before. So I hope you all had a Happy Mother's Day! ♥

My weekend was full of crafting, cleaning, laundry and cooking. Pretty much what I do every weekend. ;) 

On Saturday I had one goal, get all of these raindrops sewn. 

Mission accomplished! Plus, I included a few other raindrops from earlier sewing times. 

for Nurseries or Children's Rooms
With my new raindrops sewn, I worked on sewing the clouds and today I listed one of the new mobiles in my shop today. I'm pretty excited about how they're coming along, and need to get busy finishing up some more clouds so I can get more mobiles listed. 


Friday night I finished my second owl mobile. This one is more for a girl since there's pink in it, but it's still very cute! More designs to come!!

This passed Thursday was Joey's birthday, but I got a birthday gift too! My friend Hillary sent my birthday gift early and it was this adorable owl coin purse! I love it!

I got this new nail polish color a couple weeks ago and I love it. I thought it was going to be more neon than it is, but it's still really pretty. It looks pink in the photo, but it's really more of a coral red. In some light it does actually look neon red. 


Also... I don't have a picture of this, but you might have noticed the new URL in the address bar up there. That's right, I bought my domain name for Live Delightfully. 

I also learned, in the process, that people/companies buy tons and tons of domain names and then you have to buy the names from them for marked up prices if you want it. It's very evil. But I opted instead to just add the - . I don't think it takes away too much from the site, and I didn't want to have to pay hundreds and hundreds of dollars for the non - version. 

Anyway, my little blog is growing up... bit by bit. :) 

I also signed up for Adobe Creative Cloud and will now be spending my free time trying to figure this stuff out. Goodness gracious!! 

But oh well, it'll be worth it, I'm sure!

That's what's new with me... what's new with you??

  4. Those rain cloud mobiles are just adorable! I can tell they will be a favorite in your shop. You reminded me that I bought a domain name for my blog awhile back and never switched my url. Tear drop, we are both growing up..hehehe
