MDS: Scrapbooking

So I couldn't resist and just had to use the download I was so excited about this week. The Soft Blooms flowers! Aren't they so neat?? I just love them and am so excited that they are 3 dimensional... I think is just the beginning of all the fun that we will start to see once the MDS 2 comes out.. I think then we will have our socks blown off!  Either way enough typing and here's the page I did.

MDS - Month stickers

One of the latest things that you see a lot is "month stickers" to put on baby's onesie when you take their monthly photo's. I decided that I wasn't going to be spending money on that type of thing when I have a perfectly wonderful program that I can design my own with. Since today my baby is already a month old I had to design the first one, and here is what I came up with.

It's Tuesday - Digital Downloads

Today I was so excited when I saw one of the downloads in particular. You'll have to check it out, because it is these adorable flowers! Now unlike most of the time when I say I'm going to buy it "sometime" I ordered it right away so I hope to post a project using it soon! In the mean time here is the link so you can check out the downloads.

Digital Downloads Day

Here's the link for today's digital downloads! 

Thank-you cards

Honestly sometimes I think thank-you cards can be over-rated.. I mean if you give me a gift and I open it when you are there and say thank-you is that not enough? Seems like sometimes it isn't because around here everyone still sends out thank-you cards. For a baby shower etc I get it.. but if you come to visit after the baby is born in my opinion it's not necessary. Who knows maybe I'm alone, but I think that a new mother has enough going on never mind having to worry about sending out cards! That all being said, yes I did make thank-you cards because everyone does it.

MDS - Birth Announcement

Designing birth announcements was a little bit of a debate. I couldn't decide if I wanted to hand stamp the cards or if I was going to actually design them on My Digital Studio. In the end MDS won out because after all for just a little bit of work I would have "xx" amount of cards all done by getting them printed, and still be able to say that I designed them. I did crop out or address from the inside but for the rest the info is all there like it is in the cards.

So there it is. Now I can't wait to see what other possibilities the MDS 2 will have for design!

Time flies!!

On Sunday morning I was sitting in my chair feeding Taylina when I looked at the clock and thought to myself, Wow! a week ago at this time we had just had to make the decision that it was going to have to be a c-section. We hadn't even met our precious little daughter yet! Our life sure had changes since she has been born, it seems like everything revolves around her, and her schedule. 

So far things are going pretty well, my parents came for a quick visit last week which was super nice! It sure made a difference having my Mom there to help out. She helped me with nursing and things definitely got much better with that after she gave me some pointers. Sure they help you in the hospital but they don't tell you what to look for to know that they are really drinking etc. 

For the rest I'm definitely taking it easy, puttering around doing the odd little thing here and there but for the most part just sitting in my chair.. feeding baby.. and taking a nap once or twice a day.. and doing the same thing all over again. I think the worst part is not being allowed to lift anything other than baby and little things. Especially when I'm feeling like I'd like to do a few more little things... pretty easy to tell myself no though right now since I know it'd be too much. I'm sure it'll get to be much tougher eventually! 

One thing I've figured out though is that I intensely dislike epidurals! I hated not being able to feel anything for hours after.. which isn't a bad thing considering I had a c-section and that was painful enough. That being said if I had to go through labor again and have a natural deliver it is not on my list of want to haves to deal with the pain. The fact that you can't feel anything and can't move an inch, even rolling onto your side yourself is miserable! For the first day I had pain meds through my IV, but by the next afternoon I'd had enough of that and didn't think I needed that much for pain killers anymore so I went to Ibuprofen which I took for the next day or two and then that was it. The incision is still painful especially when I tweak it just a took a while to figure out how to get in and out of bed without having to say ouch for every move, but I think I've got it figure out now :) 

Anyway... I'm off to take a quick little nap while Taylina is sleeping since I spent more time up with her last night than I wanted too. She wouldn't settle so I didn't get to sleep until after 12:30, finally I just sat in the recliner and fell asleep with her in my arms. Then I was up at 2:00 to feed her again, which at least only took an hour and then I was able to put her in her bassinet so that I could at least sleep in bed for the rest of the night. Of course only to be woken up by her at 7:00 again this morning since she was hungry. 

So that is just a bit of an update on things around here. 

It's Tuesday - New Digital Downloads
