Well, where do I begin? Happy Thanksgiving? Merry Christmas? Happy New Year? Obviously it has been awhile; someone in this household has been sick since October 30th with very, very few days of all 5 of us feeling well. Jacob has been diagnosed with having small airways/larynx, which should correct itself as he grows, but in the meantime if he gets the slightest little cold he sounds horrible. His pediatrician is hesitant to diagnose him with asthma, but he did prescribe an inhaler that he gets 3 times a day when he's sick and as needed (usually once a day) when he's well.

As a result, there has been little spare time for crafting. I've done a few projects here and there, which I'll be posting soon. For those that have followed for awhile, you'd know that I had been working on Disney character albums for 2 of my boys for Christmas. They seemed to like them--especially Noah. I'm hoping that, as the boys grow, the albums will bring back lots of fun memories we made at Disneyland last year.

Anyway, here is one of the projects I managed to get done since the last time I posted. I made one for each set of grandparents for Christmas this year. I had the boys' silhouettes scanned, and, after some work in Inkscape, was able to cut them out in SCAL.
I added their names and ages with a fine (005 Micron) pen.
Thanks for looking!

Wow sounds like you have been busy. Hope things are looking better now and that your little man is better soon.

Glad your boys like the Disney Albums, I'm sure they will appreciate them more and more as they grow older.

Happy New Year

Great job on the silhouettes! Also, congratulations on sweet Jacob! He's darling! I loved seeing the pics of his arrival and the pics/reactions of your boys. It was quite similar to how things went at our house. Aden was brimming with excitement and kisses for his new sister and Jonathan was really unsure and didn't really want to get too close. Of course, he's really warmed up to her now and kisses her all the time! I guess he just had to get used to her. Anyway, I hope you are all well.

You have really had a tough start with your little boy. Hope everything goes well from now on.

Really loves these silhouettes, what a great idea!! Almost makes me want to get SCAL... but I won't... I think :o)
