...brought to you by the letter "R"

First, a quick update: no news.  We have had no calls from the agency, no emails, nor any babies dropped off at our front door.  We're happily, eagerly and faithfully waiting.  (Told you it'd be quick!)

In other news, I'm crafting
I've found that I'm not as terrible with my hands a I once thought and I'm becoming braver to try (and maybe at times fail) new crafts.  An added benefit is that it gives me something to do while I wait :).  I'm hesitant to join the crafting/ideas site, Pintrest though... as I have a slighly obsessive personality that might take this new thing a little far... we'll see!  I think Hobby Lobby will keep me occupied with ideas for a bit.
Anyways, I posted the letters I made for Ruth's in my Cocooning post a while back and actually had a friend ask me to make some for her sweet son's 1st birthday.  I of course took the chance to craft and was really happy with the way his "fun in nature" letters turned out! 

Here's a look at both Ruth's and Gray's letters

I had so much fun working on these (as well as some I did for Christmas) that I thought- maybe this could be another fundraiser!  I could do plain, embelished, satin, matte, boy or girl.... so many options!

So here's what I'm thinking:
$3 per letter + cost of supplies (usually less than $10 per name, even less with just initials)
It's know it's not a ton of money, but as I said I love project and I love being busy! Plus every little step we take now to fundraise will help us in the weeks, months and years to come!

If you're interested, or you'd like to order some letters for a friend either leave a comment here or email me at

Thank you all, as always, for your love, suppot and prayers to bring our baby girl home!

We can't wait for her to meet each of you :)
