piles around the house

Piles of made-with-love kits finished up for my online class. Incredible how we are sending these all over the world including Greece, Malaysia, Portugal, New Zealand, Canada, Singapore, Greece, Germany, Australia & England. How fun!
Designed packaging with some of my favorite paper: Girls Paperie
Most used punch: Classic butterfly

Piles of books that she's busy reading to her stuffed friends.

Shares a cute look for the camera while she's busy exploring & piling up some mess for momma to clean up.

A please-dip-in-milk-first pile of pregnant cravings.
Piles of to-dos as we countdown to Spark!

Happy happy Monday!

Your girls are so beautiful Liz! Lining up dolls ("friends" I should say) and reading to them is something my girls do almost daily as well. :)

Amy said...

Woman- you are one busy bee! Can't wait to see that package on my front porch!!! Your random thoughts are inspiring! And now oreos are on the brain!!

Cherie said...

Yum...Now I really want Oreo's! I love how Avery lined up her animals. So sweet!

Katie said...

Hoping that whole pile of {cookies} is just for you...that way I won't feel so bad about my own addiction. :) well, except for I am not pregnant. Hmmm...is that ok? Haha. Love this sweet post.

Laurie said...

Those cookies look divine, Quincey and Avery are so stinking cute, and your little bundles are adorable. Happy Monday to you too!

Oh I am soo excited for the packages. They look fabulous!!!

Liz said...

OMG that is the most adorable little girl...or girls I should say, that I have ever seen! So have you picked a name for the darling newbie yet? We named our little bundle of joy Kathrine.She looks so much like me! She was born a month premature, which was super scary, but shes alive and healthy! So how far along are you? I'm so happy for you and Colin!

Love the photos and your girls are such beauties! Can't wait to come to spark! I used to teach at the store you are coming to in The Woodlands so hoping to stop by. Still available to chauffeur you around if you need it, hehe. I can hold up a sign with your name, lol. Can't wait to get my kit and Its so adorable that I will have to be sure and cut open that package slowly and neatly to keep along with the tag you sent with your book. I'm slowly creating a book of memories of my meetings of fabulous creative woman!

Lovely photos. The cookies look so crunchy and yummy. I am so in love with the smile of that cute little girl. She is like an angel.

Ann Marie said...

Liz, can I ask what kind of machine you use for the die cutting of fabric? I thought die cutters only cut paper?

SO darling! I'll bet the girls are all excited for the baby to arrive! BTW, any suggestions for maternity clothes? Love your cute floral/vintage-y style and just found out I'm having baby #4 but have already given away all my maternity goods - have to start all over! Any tricks to stretch the wardrobe? Thanks in advance :)

Laura said...

Beautiful pictures! I love the oreos. I'm crazing ice cream. :) How do you get your little one to smile at the camera? My girls are so sick of the camera, I have a hard time actually getting them to look my way!
