Babies, babies everywhere!

Everyone I know is having babies, which is awesome.  I personally am scared of children, but my friends are all brave and aren't scared (or if they are, they're masking it pretty darn well).  Someday I won't be either, but for now...terrified. 

JUST A NOTE HERE: I was fully planning on titling this post "I'm pregnant" and then linking it to my facebook with the thought that I would get readers, but I chickened out.  I wasn't ready for the combination of congrats and OMGs that would follow.

My friend Marie just had a beautiful baby girl named Chase.  Marie and I were friends in high school and thanks to the wonders of Facebook we've managed to stay in touch.  The best part...neither of us crafted a lot in high school (we were too busy going to prom, looking really...awesome)

I'm the one on the right with the white girl fro.  Impressed???

Anyway, while neither of us crafted in high school, we both craft now!  It's sort of like twins that were separated at birth and raised in different towns but then ended up still being completely alike.  Uh,'s nothing like that at all...but we do both craft.

Anyway, I thought I'd send her a little something as a congratulatory "hey you had a baby!  yay!" gift.  And here's what I came up with...

Thanks goodness I've properly honed my Facebook stalking skills because I was able to figure out the date the baby was born, the weight, and where she was born ALL via Facebook. 

Here's an up close pic...

I used a fiskars heart punch to punch a heart out with the portion of an atlas where they checked in on Facebook while they were at the hosptial.

I'm super excited to get it shipped off to her! 

Oh, and taking a picture of a frame with glass and trying not to get a reflection is HARD people...any tips???


  1. Rae this is so adorable! I'm going to follow your blog, you're so crafty! I don't really have time for crafts right now with the Babe so this is like craft porn to see! Sorry I said porn on your blog.

    1. I just wanted to say...I really appreciate that you said porn on the blog :)

  2. STALKER, Just kidding...but it's amazing to see how much information I put on FB :)
    We got this in the mail's beautiful! Can't wait to find a spot for this sweet gift.
    And thanks for that awesome prom pic. Good lord we were hot. Is this the same prom where we went with Ryan Phillipe and Freddie Prinze Jr?

    1. I felt bad when I realized I put no note in the box to indicate who it was from! I'm glad you figured it out :)

      And yes...that was the prom where we had some pretty hotty least your date was a nice guy!
