Little Lottie

Meet Lottie.  Her name is Charlotte, but her family calls her Lottie.  Cutest nickname ever.  My niece is named Charlotte and I has never even crossed my mind to call her Lottie.  I may have to try it.

Anyway, sweet little Lottie was born on a blustery February day and warmed the frozen hearts of her Minnesotan family immediately.  She has the most perfectly round head and whisper soft skin, just like a fresh-from-heaven little angel should have.

One thing about this little girl, I COULD NOT get her to keep her mouth closed.  Get ready family!  If she is like any girls in my house, that mouth will just go and go, never to ever stop talking ;0}  Just a warning!

Awe, so sleepy.  So peaceful. 

Get your winks now...

Your brothers will be home soon and I have a feeling you won't sleep much with them around ;0}
They just love you too much for that!

Thanks Crystal for letting me come take pictures of your new little angel.  She is a doll <3 p="">

Embossing Gun Stand

I was doing a little light housekeeping of my photo file on the computer and came across these pictures!!!  Wohoo!  It is my lucky day.  Must be cause I cut this out finally, only minutes ago...

Anyway, I had a custom order for an Embossing Gun Stand just after Christmas, so I came up with the design, cut out two, painted up one and sent it off.  Well, the pictures I took just before shipping were accidentally deleted from my camera and I thought I didn't have any others.  Guess what?  I do!

It pays to clean out your computer files once in a while ;0}

Anyway, this stand is not painted, but when I ever get free time and energy all in the same minute, I will get a couple of these up for sale on my etsy.  Feel free to message or 
email me {vanessa.cam5 at Gmail dot com} if you want one now, 
painted or unpainted.

Otherwise, I will get back to looking for the other pictures I need ;0}

Let It Snow....Not

People still say that, right?  Not after some sarcastic sentence to insinuate it isn't at all what they want to see happen, right???  Regardless, I don't REALLY want it to snow another flake.  This winter has been so freaky with the temps.  I am just saying, what ever happened to global warming?  We could use a tad bit of that right now.

Anyway, I cut these letters out and painted them up in probably November.  I wanted a cute thing to hang on my shutter in January after the joy of Christmas was over and the dull, grey slump of January set in.  Well, I finished it today.  It took me that much longer to thing about that silly sign at the top of the thing, the "Let it" sign. 

Yep, this one.  I painted it a turquoise color with Americana acrylic paint color "Indian Turquoise."  I cut some snowflakes out of silver vinyl and the lettering is made with the font called "Chalk-hand-lettering-shaded_dem."  Don't ask me where I got it.

The letters for "SNOW" were from the font "2 Peas Mr. Giggles," a personal favorite.

I used 1/4" MDF from Home Depot for all the wood.

So, now that my neighbors thing I am totally out of my mind, I better take this down and put my St. Patrick sign back up!!!

There.  Much better.  I will save my "Let It Snow" sign for next year when, after the long sticky summer, I still think snowflakes are beautifully mesmerizing.

Little Man

This little man was quite the snuggler.  I SERIoUSLY LOvE it when I get to hold these little babies in my arms and sniff the newness that fills the room.  New babies are just magical in the way they fill you with happiness from tippy top to toes.

Loved the Red Head too!

I love to squeeze the yellow crate into the pics when I am shooting back in Fairmont.  This baby AND this crate originated in Fairmont, Minnesota ;0}

Caught a smile!  lOve it!!!

Come here little man.  I'll Kiss your sweet little newborn cheeks <3 p="">

Want to Gobble Them Up!

Cutest family ever!  That littlest girl with all her curls, I could have just eaten her up.  All of the kids has amazing brown eyes and such sweet personalities.  That poor little brother though, he is going to have a hard, girl-trapped life I tell you!

Enjoy the rest now little brother.  You will soon be sister-handled, dressed up in doll clothes and forced to wear princess shoes!!!
