Nursery Room Tour + Baby Pics!!

This will be my last non-crafty video, but I did want to share some pictures of my newborn daughter, as promised. Also, I will show you a quick peek at her nursery in the video. As mentioned in my previous post, I will be on a limited schedule the remainder of the year while I bond with my precious daughter, but I hope you’ll stick around for more wonderful craft videos!! 🙂


Our Baby Story!

Although this is a crafting blog, I wanted to share a bit of exciting personal news with my readers. I am a first-time Mommy to a beautiful baby girl named Clarissa Faith!! I believe that God crafted her wonderfully.

Although my schedule will be limited for the remainder of the year. I still plan on uploading at least one video per month – hoping that can increase by next year as I acclimate to Motherhood. 🙂

To see our baby story, please click on the video below.

Quick Pregnancy Update…

As many of you know, I am currently pregnant with my first baby (a girl). Since I am so close to my delivery date, I am on “Maternity Leave” from my blog and YouTube channel. However, I am trying to keep my Instagram updated as I can. I didn’t want anyone to feel left out and wanted everyone to know where I am keeping updates. As always, I greatly appreciate your prayers.

Thanks for sticking with me as I plan on returning to my blog and YouTube channel in September. I will likely not update this blog until then, but will try to keep updates going on my IG. Keep having fun crafting and I will see you soon! 🙂
