Thankful Thursday

25 Oct

My favorite day of the week!  It’s Thankful Thursday with Mustache Mama.

My list of things I’m thankful for is overflowing.  I’m thankful that Texas is finally getting a cold front so the family can start wearing some of our knits.  It’s much more fun to wear our creations than to just look at them.  I’m thinking tonight I will be wearing the “Forever” Infinity Scarf, I adore it’s chunky texture.I’m SO very thankful that our adventure with gas drops worked and Baby T is both comfortable and sleeping right now.  That makes for one happy mama.  She went from a max sleeping time of 3 hours (but an average of 1 hour) to 6 whole hours last night!  My brain is actually able to process ideas, it’s pretty amazing if you ask me.  (note that my islander baby got tan skin, red hair, and blue eyes.  I’m thinking a future modeling career is in the works)

I’m thankful for such a creative partner.  I love to watch B create and love that we feed on each others creative energy.  I’m  currently knitting some really cute hats from some ideas he had.  I can’t wait to finish them so I can show them off.  B’s dad will be visiting us in just a few hours.  I’m not sure if he is more excited to show off the baby or our compost pile.

And finally I’m so thankful that BraggAbout Creations is sponsoring our first giveaway!! You still have time to enter over at Little Willow Tree‘s blog.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week and has a huge list of thankfuls!

Blessings in Disguise?

25 Oct

Baby T does not have the go-with-the-flow attitude of her daddy, nor is she the calm angel baby that my mother swears I was.  After several days of tears, both from her and me, I made a doctor’s appointment to find out why I’m not experiencing any sort of sleepy stage that several of my mommy friends talk about when discussing their newborns.  I’m experiencing a baby that could put any cheerleader to shame with her powerful lungs.  I’m experiencing a baby that would eat 24/7 if I allowed it to happen.  And I’m experiencing some pretty severe sleep deprivation.  So to the doctor we went.  To my surprise my daughter is in the 75% for her weight, and 95% for her height!  After an hour with the doctor, analyzing all kinds of Baby T’s behaviors specifically a cry that would suggest pain, which is only consoled through her love of nonstop nursing, and her pretend sleep tricks. we were told the only problem is that I’m a milk machine, and she loves to eat.  The prescription: gas drops, and the suggestion to pump so that B could help with the baby.  I don’t feel like that is in anyway helpful, but we are switching from Gripe Water to Mylicon drops tonight and praying that things change.  In the mean time my daughter is a fantastic model, and I’m so glad I was knitting crazy hats for her instead of nesting during my pregnancy.

We’re Sponsoring a Giveaway!

21 Oct

The Crafty Side of Sarcasm recently sent me a gift card to a craft store as part of a Pay it Forward project.  We decided to continue paying it forward by sponsoring a giveaway over at The Little Willow Tree’s blog.

One of our biggest goals at BraggAbout Creations has always been to share our art in order to raise awareness and funds for causes we care about.  We are so excited for the very first cause that we sponsor to be about breastfeeding and breast cancer awareness, especially since we just started our breastfeeding journey with our sweet little one. 

We will be giving away our newest creation “The Breast Hat Ever” as well as donating 25% of the sales from the hat to cancer research.  Purchases can of be customized to various skin colors and sizes.  Head on over to The Little Willow Tree for more details on how to enter for your chance to win a BraggAbout Creation!

I’m a ZombShell

15 Oct

At this actual moment, while my 1 week old is taking a nap, I am much more Zomb and much less Shell than I was 6 months ago.  But here is a preview of my feature in ZombShells 2013 Zombie Calendar.  My fiance sculpted the heart AND was still painting it in the car as we drove down for this shoot.  I’d say he did a pretty spectacular job.  It is always amazing to me watching him create something from a block of clay.  If you need any custom props or sculptures you can send us a private message on the BraggAbout Creations Facebook or Etsy page

Thankful Thursday: WE GOT FEATURED

12 Oct

I am so thankful to announce that BraggAbout Creations will be featured in the ZombShells 2013 Calendar scheduled to come out at the end of this month.  I’ll post a picture of me as a Zombie as soon as I get it.  I have the most AMAZING fiance that is able to make such cool stuff like crazy eye balls.  Which reminds me tomorrow I should probably add some of his clay work to the shop. 

By the way the shoot for this calendar was how we announced our pregnancy.  Can you believe I was 3 months pregnant in this photo?!  During the shoot B kept telling me to “suck the baby in.”  That was such a fun time being able to FINALLY say that we were pregnant after having two losses.  I am SO THANKFUL that our little bundle is here now.  I can’t stop staring at her.
