I've been gone...

Sorry I've been missing a little bit but so much as been going on!  I feel like that is how I start all posts...

Last week I was sick a bit and also was working on an elliebellie handmade project!!  Did I tell you that is the name of my little store that I'm opening?  I worked with a fabulous graphic designer, Sara Barbar, to work on a logo for my new business (eek!!).  I've gotten business cards, a stamp, labels, a banner for my new blog, and my etsy shop.  The big reveal for my new blog and etsy shop will be next week so please look for updates.  I'd love you all to follow me to the next blog site!

Anyway...back to the project... I was hired to make some tags for a friend of a friend.  Her baby is getting baptized and she wanted specialized tags to put on the party favors.  I have a bunch of photos I'll post next week.  It was so much fun and was a milestone for was the first project I've done for someone I didn't know!

This week, Matt and I are in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina with my family.  We flew into Atlanta and stayed with my parents the first night.  I saw this awful craft I made when I was little:

I was in a sewing class (which I am so thankful I took) and made this little beauty for my mom for Mother's Day...poor thing...she probably had no idea what to do with it.  She's a great mom because she has kept it out all of these years.  

I know I've mentioned my sweet nephew, Isaac.  We have had such a great time being with him.  Here he is with Uncle Matt:

Look at those curls!!!

Here he is with Uncle Andy:

I took this picture with my hipstomatic app on my phone.  

We've been sleeping in, lounging at the beach, staring at Isaac, reading, playing games, and eating ice cream.  In other words, it has already been an awesome vacation.  I love being with family!
