More Beach...

More fun beach pictures for all of you who can't visit on your own. This was one wierd jelly fish he was very hard and round and not dead... if you were wondering.
Incase you were also wondering what is in the water off of our coast here is another little guy who wasn't properly thrown back in after being caught by some fisherman.
This little guy is a baby hammerhead shark... yeah that makes you want to go for a swim huh?!?
He's pretty little...not in the least bit scary....and once again he's not dead... I don't pick up dead things (take pictures- yes, totally!)
After snapping a few pictures with him we got him back in the water... well I nicely released him and tried to let him swim but the waves were too rough so Uber tossed him out farther so maybe he would have a chance. Yeah I know the shark could grown up and bite someone but I have problems with our local fishers who throw back 95% of what they pull out of the water and a vast majority of them dont even toss the poor fish in deep enough water for them to swim.
And just for fun Brinkley being a circus dog!
And for those of you who want to see how fat I am here's a peek. Though I do have to say I look way larger here than I normally do I had just eaten a rather large meal... HAHA (but no really)

Next post involves crafting!

I live for weekends!

We are all sorts of busy around here filling up our weekends with fun get-togethers. It was overcast this weekend but last weekend we hit the beach. We went South to a beach Beau 'found' and enjoyed an afternoon of sun and water... if it hadn't gotten cold they wouldn't have been able to make me leave!
Brinkley was mostly all I took pictures of. He isn't really sure about the whole beach thing. Over all I think he likes it but...
the water kind of freaks him out. It took us a good ten minutes to coax him into sitting and it didn't last long.
He does like rolling in the sand though.
and getting the only spot in the shade.
he didn't seem a all upset about being half buried... eventually I am sure he will love it all.
Friday night we went to the opening game of Arena football. We had awesome seats and it was very entertaining we still aren't sure the ref's actually understood the game... but watching huge guys slam each other into the walls was hysterical...especially since we were close enought to see the facial expressions...

it was a total blow out. Jacksonville stomped Orlando everyone got free Arby's sandwiches which made the guys really happy.
No all of us but the closest I have to a group shot... This is just to get Beau back for the terrible photo he posted of me on facebook!
And this is just to show you that Uber and I are far too much alike... I didn't know they had taken this picture!
Last but most certainly not least. The 'dancers' I'm still not sure they knew where they were because the only way I can describer what they were doing was erotic dancing... no really they spent a good ten minutes on the field going through rather interesting poses... you wish I was kidding!
Alright I need to go do some crafting... if I can remember what that is!

Elephant Butt Face

Now that I have you attention... I have a new onesie design and I'm LOVING IT... seriously it's replaced the giraffe design as my favorite. Do you think people on etsy will be offended if I call it the Elephant Butt Face Onesie??! I rather like the name personally.

I printed this one up in turquoise per Ubers request. But like all my onesies you can chose a different color if you like.
I had been meaning to think up some new designs forever and a recent order finally got me thinking since I wanted to send a few things along with said order as a gift. I think the order is about a month late... oops... not my usual business practice I am all about getting things out ASAP. Hopefully I will be forgiven though since the baby isn't due yet and .... well because I am sending gifts!

Sweet E Cake

I know 3 times in one week and it's only wednesday!! (Don't expect this to keep up!)

Another logo I have been working on. I actually designed it back in December-January but it had been put on the back burner until this week. It is for a friend in Indiana who is starting up a little cake business from home. I LOOOVVVVEEEE the name.
Here's it with a little pop of color... I just sent this version along for fun but I think it's growing on me.
I loved getting the opportunity to play with a logo that is not crafting related. Or I guess a better way to put it is I loved getting the chance to play with a logo that was food related. Makes me want to open a bakery... or on second thought maybe just visit one... hahaha.
And on a complete side note I am hanging out on our patio right now writing this post and I just looked over to see a cardinal hoping around my wanna be garden. I am SO happy summer is finally here and though I am sure it will be a long hot 6 months at the moment I am eating up every minute of outside time I can get!

For my Cousin

Look I can still craft!

I was supposed to teach my cousin how to do freezer paper stenciling when she was here but we sort of ran out of time doing things like visiting the beach and shopping instead. So I promised her I would make her a shirt and send it later.

She decided she wanted an owl so I drew up the pattern the last night she was here (while she was doing homework...ahem) and ended up cutting out two stencils at once since I had a feeling I would never want to go through the trouble a second time (at least I am learning). So I made one for me and one for her. They aren't exactly the same though just roughly.

The branch wraps around to the back of the shirt. I did mine in brown ink. My shirt had more ribbing then I realized so there is some splitting going on. I ended up digging the look though so I decided not to fix it and just let it do it's thing.
Corrie choose a pink shirt so I used black ink on her's.

I am really stoked with the design.
Hopefully she likes it! Hopefully I get it in the mail soon!!

And for all of you who don't live near the beach here is a dolphin picture for you from the beach this weekend, we are having gorgeous weather!! The dolphin is on the right. I think it's a bird on the left. I wish I had brought a better camera with me but this will have to do! I hope you are all enjoying your versions of spring.

Oh Baby!

Uber and I are ecstatic to announce that we are expecting a Baby Uber sometime around October 12th. (I'm 13 weeks)

We aren't sure yet if it is a boy or girl, we'll be sure to let you know when we find out. However, we can tell you that it seems to be taking after Uber's large head... and from what we saw when we woke it up in the Ultrasound my attitude....oh dear!
