DIY Ornaments- Inspiration

I'm starting to get a little bit of my energy back and am really wanting to make sure I craft as much as possible for Christmas!  I LOVE ornaments.  I love how you can use them for so much more than just hanging on a tree.  You can attach them to a gift, hang them from the ceiling with fishing line, stack them in vases...the ideas are endless.  I am wanting to create a lot of ornaments this year for sure!  On Pinterest, I have found a lot of cute ornament ideas that seem very easy to duplicate.  Here are just a few of my favorites.

all images can be found on my Pinterest Christmas board

All of these can be done with scrap pieces of fabric or paper.  Easy and two favorite words while crafting!  I made a few ornaments last night, but am hoping to get quite a few more done soon!

What is one of your favorite Christmas crafts?  I want to do them all this year! :)

Healthy Strong Heartbeat

Today was my 8 week ultrasound, and as I noted in my last post I was a nervous wreck! I am happy to say that there is one baby with what the Dr. said has a "very strong, healthy heartbeat!" Those words were music to my ears!

Meet our little peanut.  This baby is loved more than it could know already.  Thank you for your prayers and if you wouldn't mind continuing those prayers.  You all mean so much to me and am so grateful for you!  I really promise I will get back to crafting as soon as I can.  I have two duvets to finish up by Monday, then I am finished with those until further notice!  So until then my lovely readers, have a beautiful day.

My Fears

This post is very different from any post I think I've ever written as I want to be very transparent and open with you all about my fears at the moment.  First, I wanted to apologize for not blogging more! I am just so nauseous that it is hard to do much right now let alone anything crafty! I am really hoping to get some Christmas crafting done very soon and as soon as I do it will be up for all to see! :) Continued prayers for us and this pregnancy would be greatly appreciated. I have a dr. appointment on Monday to hear our little ones heatbeat and see them for the first time. I'm excited beyond words, yet nervous and scared at the same time.  I'm not sure if I have shared this with you all but I lost my first pregnancy at 8 weeks.  That was an extremely difficult time in our lives and with Monday being my 8 week mark it is hard not to worry.  I worried like this when I was pregnant with my daughter too and she was born a beautiful healthy gift from God.  I know that whatever happens that God is in control and He will be praised in ALL situations.  Thank you all of my lovely readers for your sweet messages and comments.  You all feel like a whole extra part of my family!  I will post on Monday when I get home.
