My Auntie Roxanne is a cancer survivor. Recently she was asked to participate in a fundraiser for the Huntsman cancer institute. The popular interchangeable Miche bag unveiled their bag HOPE in hopes to raise at least one million dollars to give back for cancer research in the year 2010. (HERE is a link to the news coverage. ) These bags are reasonably priced and pretty cool I might add :) plus if it will help cancer research I'm all over it. If you are interested my cousin Jane sells these bags just shoot her an email. firstname.lastname@example.org

Miss Annie Bear has been on the move for a few weeks now. She is now eight months and is getting quicker every day. She is still doing the army crawl but I'm sure it won't be long before she is doing the real thing we have been on all fours rocking away for a while now. Some other things about Miss Annie are she has figured out how to clap, she ADORES Ty, and is terrified of our dog in the backyard it's kind of funny.
I have been meaning to post this along time ago but I am just now getting around to it. I have been following a site So you think your crafty. There are so many talented women and each week they create a craft around that weeks theme. Although I could never be a participant I love to get great ideas from these amazing women. The last winner is amazingly talented and I now love to check her blog (HERE) out multiple times a week and has inspired me to be more thrifty and see things in a different light. I found this shirt in the first picture at JCPenny for a whopping $2.97 it was a womens shirt extra small and thought I could refashion it to a dress for my Goosey I was mostly pleased with the results and for my first refashion I think it turned out pretty well. One other thing I have made is a skirt made out of a vintage bedsheet kindof fun. Someday I will try to make this too. So many things to try... so little time!
The other thing that has been taken over in my mind is doing a little baking. My visiting teacher (who was just taken from me to edify a new sister in the ward) is an amazing talented lady who also has inspired me. I have always loved to bake but after seeing the amazing work that Trudy does I wanted to try different things too. Chris got me this cookbook. I love it and look at it often. We decided that we need to have more get-together because it is a bad idea to bake all the yummy stuff in that book and eat it just the two of us. So mostly we just look at all the pretty pictures but these are a few of the things I have made. Not Trudy worthy but they tasted good!
