Climbing off the plate...

I have so much on my plate right now and I just wanted you all to know I AM STILL MAKING YOUR NAMESAKES...
Not that I have felt rushed - I surely have not but I would feel badly if I didn't at least let you all know I haven't run off to the Bahama's with your money and left my kids to complete your NAMESAKES!

The weather has been just gorgeous so we have been sledding (?)

and doing a lot of playing outside. As you know, it is quite difficult to throw a baseball, catch a basketball, sled (?), chase a trike, chase multiple-sized balls across the road while dodging traffic and save the cat from having his tail stomped on by a lunatic 2-year old all while sketching and planning. So, NAMESAKE-making has become a naptime activity!

Of course, when you add a BRAND NEW KING-SIZED PILLOW TOP BED in Mommy and Daddy's room to the mix...

nap time can quickly get out of hand and not be quite so productive!

Add to that an ALEX'S LEMONADE STAND with my church girls...

some zip-line lessons...

(he's not really screaming - he is yelling, "COOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!!!"
(she WAS screaming...until she saw the camera!)
(hubby - not screaming either, just trying to look young!)
(the baby - watching and wishing he was a few years older!!)
So, as you can see...me chasing all these SHENANIGANS with sketchbook in hand makes me a little sleepy. My usual blogging time is L-O-O-O-N-G after everyone is in bed...but with a KING SIZED PILLOW TOP MATTRESS...that is exactly where I have been, too!
All kidding aside - there were a lot of orders and I continue to fill them. You will receive an email when they go out in the mail. Please feel free to email me if you just wanna check on the progress or your number in line. I haven't forgotten you - just taking my time to make YOURS extra special!
(Oh, and we had a broken bone this weekend - the third one this year! YIKES! Good thing I have all my background clearances from foster parenting or we would be getting a call! LOL!)

I loved the picture of Ken...and the comment of course. But I was hoping to see a picture of you on the zip line. Maybe next posts?

Who has the broken bone? Did it get broken doing anything fun like winning the fast race at the skating rink?

Oooh, the namesakes look AWESOME!!! I can't wait to get them! The girls' room is still getting under way so no hurry here but they are going to love them!

Sounds like lots of fun time outside, certainly don't blame ya there! We've been out as much as possible but the last few days have been pretty stormy. Hoping for brighter days ahead, that's for sure!

Keep up the good work!

I think it is a busy time for everyone in blog world right now and the nice weather has been a bonus too! I may need a lap top to take to the beach with me!

I GOT THEM! I Got the Namesakes yesterday and they are beautiful!! Thank you SO much for them! I'm going to frame them and give them to the girls for their birthday! They are so excited for their "big girl" beds and room that they will be thrilled to have their names up above their beds. I'll be sure to send you a picture of the completed project (whenever that may be!)
Thanks again, Michelle!
