Samples and stuff

I think I found a new way to display some embroidery! We sell these wire frames at the store.
A couple of samples for the store. Stamping, embossing and tag punch.

We spent the day in Heidelberg and Mannheim yesterday (Jon had a knee appointment). These are some photos (above) from the car ride and the girls laying on the floor in the waiting room. I love the bib Ava is wearing because it's small (so she can't rip it off) and water proof but it often looks like an Elizabethan cat/dog collar:) Here is our new German playpen!! Thank you Mary!! I LOVE it!! I mean LOVE it! After this picture I put her play mat and bumbo seat and lots of other toys in it for her. That's Emily asking to get in it.

I love your samples! The embroidery in the little frame is so darling! Someone told me they would teach an embroidery class... Adie? The owl stamps are way cool! I'm glad you ordered them.

I can't see the picture of Ava's bib. I don't know if it's my computer or your page. A couple of pictures aren't working today...

Great display, I love those things! Told the new consigner she could put her cards in a couple....

I don't like to stamp and you just keep picking out things that make we wish I would stamp.

Hope the appt. went ok for Jon's knee. Did everyone there fall in love with your girls too???

It was me who said they would teach an embroidery class (I guess Adrienne could have said she would too-don't know). I just hate teaching SO much that i keep putting it off:) I love stamps Corinnea, but I never use them in scrapbooking and I'm not into making cards (I like them to have pictures of emily on them:)so I never use what I have! I'm vowing to find more uses for them now though:) JOn has old man knees and can't do PT anymore. Poor guy. And as a matter of fact, lots of people did comment on how adorable my babies are!!! I never know though if people are just being kind..really, becasue I've told people with ugly babies that their baby was cute. It's just the kind thing to do.

You ARE too nice! Just say "sweet baby" or "look at the baby" or something. There are ways to avoid the word cute! But no... you're babies are CUTE! When people don't have cute babies I usually just avoid adjectives alltogether! LOL!

Ask Adrienne about embroidery. If she DID volunteer to teach it you wouldn't have to feel obligated to do it. (Unless you really really want to!) :)

Well, I am biased, but the girls are cute. About Jon's knees...did they put him on a no running permanent profile? How will that work if he should decide to reenlist? Just curious. also, I have to agree with Kelly. I normally say things like oh look at the baby etc...

I'm sooo glad you love the play pen. I loved having mine so much I brought one back for my sis on the airplane instead of a suitcase. When nicolas was little I had to have someplace safe to put him in every room. When I lived with my parents we had two cribs, two high chairs, two swings, and one really handy play pen =-)

Hi jenny,

My name is teresa and I was hoping you might be able to help me. I have been serching the internet looking for information on the german playpen you have pictured with your children. I saw a person selling one and a friend of mine stationed in germany purchased it and sent it to me. I am now looking for any kind of bedding for it. Could you tell me where you got yours or where I could find some? I would apprieciate any help you could give me. Thanks for your help in advance. You have beautiful children.
Teresa
