Quick Baby Gift

Happy Monday, all!  Man, was it a weekend.  I have been sick, sick, sick.  I lost my voice.  I can't stop coughing.  I keep falling asleep on the couch.  It has not been pleasant.  It was bad timing, too.  This weekend, my husband was called to be the new bishop of our ward (congregation)!

If you are LDS, you know that is a life-changing thing.  If you're not, you can read more about it here.  We are excited, overwhelmed, apprehensive, etc.  I am excited to get to know the members of our ward more, and know that it will be a great opportunity for service.  Still, there are a lot of hard things and sacrifices that will be made.  I don't know how this will relate to blogging, but there are chances changes in my family life will cause some changes here.  We will see....

I also did some silly and fun things this weekend.  I went to the Breaking Dawn midnight showing with some of my girl friends.  It was tons of fun!  I also went to a baby shower for my sister-in-law, and that's where this post (finally) comes in:

I gave my sis-in-law a whole bunch of my old boy clothes and baby stuff, so I don't know that a shower gift was really necessary.  Still, I wanted to give her something that I made, so I did this:


The printable comes from an idea I saw on Pinterest.  It was not linked back correctly, however, so if you know who originally created this, I'd love to know so I can give proper credit!  I used Picnik to create my own version using her son's name.


I paired it with a few handmade washcloths and some deliciously-rich baby shampoo.  Cute and practical.

I'm linking up my gift idea to some parties this week:  I hope you'll come check them out with me!

  4. Congrats (and sorry) about your new calling as bishop's wife. You're in for a quite a ride, definitely some trying times, but overall, many blessings from your family's service.

    I've seen that letter print on Pinterest, too, and have been wanting to do something with it. Yours looks great.
