My latest Obsessions...


I am crazy about these creepy art dolls. I LOVE THEM. I love them so much that I want to learn how to make them... but I REALLY don't need another hobby... do I? You can go directly to either listing by clicking on either of the pictures. The second picture is a reserved listing, but I love it so I wanted to show it anyway.

The first one is from this store : and the second one is from this store:


I am seriously in love with Japanese fabrics with TOO CUTE prints. These are from check out the store for more awesome prints!


I have looked at so many craft stores for a roller skate stamp. I should have known etsy was the answer. This is from cupcaketree's shop. you can find it here:

Pictures of Autumn

Autumn is walking... like a cat. Silly little cutie.

Autumn is a future roller girl, no doubt! The first picture she is checking out my skates, and in the second picture she is trying on daddy's new helmet. Adam Also got new skates and will be reffing when he gets back to Albuquerque. I LOVE DUKE CITY DERBY! Also, the cute headband that autumn is wearing is available in our store Autumn is an excellent model.

Aren't autumns little teeth amazingly cute? I made the hat that she is wearing as a gift for someone.

Autumn loves her Paddington Bear Mobile. She looks like she is going to be blond, at least in the early years.

Autumn is modeling a bag for mommy. She looks so sophisticated. This cute outfit is from Grandma Ginny. This bag is in our etsy store.
I am really confused about my post baby body. I work out really hard, and often. I exercise daily. I include aerobic and aerobic activities into my exercise routine almost every day. I eat a pretty balanced diet. I am about as healthy as I was Before Autumn was born... yet I am still really fat. I don't get it. I am not sure how much of the baby weight I have lost, or how much I have left. I gained about 90 lbs during my pregnancy, which I also can't really explain. When I went in for my 6 week check-up I had lost about 40 lbs. Now I know I am have lost at least 10 more pounds, and possibly more, but I am far to active to be retaining weight like this, and really, the extra lbs are getting in the way. I am not as flexible as I used to be.

On top of all of this, I am severely depressed and very moody. I also got a sunburn for the first time in about 10 years last week. I can't think clearly most of the time. I feel dizzy or disoriented when I try to move fast, or get up quickly. I feel painfully tired all of the time.

I have been guessing that my hormone levels were a little off after having a baby, and wasn't sure if that was normal, as it is only 7 months out. I don't know what exactly the conversation was based around, but Adam's mom suggested that I see an endocrinologist, or hormone specialist. That is a good Idea, but I am not sure when that will look feasible now that we are moving back to Albuquerque.

Stopping to Smell the Roses

Looking in to the tree!


Adam and I went to the Portland Rose Garden this weekend. It was the first time we have been there this year since the roses started blooming, and they were definitely in full bloom! It was such a beautiful place to be on a (rare) sunny Portland day, and we all had a blast!
