Happy Snow Day

We got about a foot of snow here. I want to take Baby V out to see his first snowy day! I will be gone for the next few days because tomorrow we are moving! Hopefully internet will get set up quickly and I can get back on asap but you never know. So enjoy the weather wherever you are and I will come back in a few days. In the meantime....

Fab Artist: Melissa Nucera "This Years Girl"

I actually came across this artist's photographs through Etsy's little program that finds things for you based on your taste. I want the Little Prince series for Baby V's new nursery! I am beyond excited to start decorating his nursery when we move into our new place. Up until now he has just been living in our room with us in our one bedroom loft apartment and finally we are getting a proper two bedroom. Melissa Nucera's Etsy shop called This Years Girl has gorgeous altered photographs that she sells as prints, pins, cards, and even adorable lockets.

Aren't these beautiful? I think the little animal prints lined up on Baby V's wall would look amazing. Check out more of her work at her shop.

Fab Craft Project

I am in love with this idea. One of my favorite blogs, Creature Comforts had a guest post done by PapernSnitch. They basically turn little plastic toys into ornaments and jewelry simply by painting them gold and/or silver! Such a brilliant idea and I have learned that you can paint pretty much anything gold or silver and it looks amazing. I want to go scour the dollar store now for little trinkets to paint! Check out more photos and the tutorial.

4 Months

Baby V is 4 months old! Unfortunately for me, he is already starting to teethe! I didn't think it was possible because my cousin's daughter just got her first tooth and she's 8 months old but I checked my baby book and I got my first tooth at 5 months so it is a definite possibility. He babbles now and tries so hard to talk. It must be frustrating to be a baby and want to speak like an adult but when you try it just sounds like jibberish!

Anyway, sorry for my little hiatus but my computer is terrible. It has gotten very slow and freezes all the time so hopefully one of my Christmas gifts is a new lap top ;).

The Baby's Daddy recently got promoted so we are moving to New Hampshire! We just found a place and are moving at the end of the month and I am very excited.

A couple weeks ago I had to put to sleep my 21 year old cat, Jack. I just wanted to make a note of him because he was the best cat ever. I got him when he was about 5 years old from the SPCA and he was a huge, fat, orange tabby cat. He loved to lick people like a dog and he was just an enormous sweetheart. Everyone who met him fell in love with him and he converted a lot of people who thought they were only dog lovers into cat lovers! He was diagnosed with cancer a year and a half ago but he went through chemotherapy and was doing really well. Finally though he was extremely arthritic and his health started to go downhill, he lost a lot of weight and when he could barely lick anymore I knew it was time. I got his ashes back but I'm not sure what I want to do with them yet. I remember hearing about a company that makes pet ashes into blown glass necklaces? So I might look into that.

Last picture of Jack.

Rest in Peace Jack, you will always be remembered and truly missed.
