About Me

My photo
My name is Robin. I live to create - anything I can do with my hands and my head. I'm a messy creator - an imperfect creator who loves beauty and aesthetic with a real edge. This isn't a blog about perfection - its a blog about the beauty in real life - the small triumphs and epic failures - trying to get homework done with a tired 5 year old after a 12 hour day and still getting a smidge of weaving in before the crash. Figuring out what the dream is when you finally realize its not the house and the car. Its about not letting the years get the best of you and cherishing all that you love in life. Mostly its just a place for me to put all the things that I love and that inspire me.

As April draws to a close...

Well, I can't say April has been the best month guys. It had it's high points, like turning in our profile for "the book". But overall due to my health crisis it kinda sucked. Things are looking up though and next months blogging is looking more like it may be more interesting! The rash is clearing up (YAY!!!!!!) We are hoping maybe to get a call soon, and we are going to Boston on Vacay in mid May so lots of fun pics!
I am somewhat concerned about our adoption web site though, I have us posted several places and we have about 300 views on our first page, but then only about 100 on our subsequent pages. So you think that people don't realize there is more than one page? Hmmmm.....
Anyway out with the old tired April and in with the new fun productive May!

Not a happy camper

Sorry, I have to gripe and bemoan my situation for a while. A few weeks I wrote about a horrible itchy rash that I have had for over a month. Then I deleted it because what a gross thing to post about. But matters have gotten worse. I have seen my GP 2 weeks ago and her prescription did nothing for my problem, so 2 days ago I went to my Dermatologist and she took biopsies which I do not know the results of, and gave me a prescription for Prednasone which no one is supposed to be allergic to, however I guess I am allergic to it! I am now broken out into hives ALL OVER my body and I feel like I have the flu. So today after practically yelling at my dermatologist's receptionists over the phone they finally "squeezed" me in, I drove all the way to Wayzata, got lost, she wrote me another prescription for some cream to use and told me to take Benadryl all weekend. I drove to Target to get the scrip filled, waited 40 minutes, went back to the pharmacy and they told me that I had already filled that prescription 2 days ago! So come to find out my doc wrote me a scrip for the same freakin stuff she had already given me a prescription for! So now I am finally home. I was supposed to go drop off our profile at the adoption agency this afternoon but had to cancel that because as soon as this Benadryl kicks in I will be out. The only good thing that came from it is I found this cute baby sleep and play "give peas a chance" while I was waiting for my already filled prescription. The first baby garment I have gotten.

To make for nursery


So I am casting on my first baby item, a baby blanket. It will look like the one above only the green will be gray. I also saw these hilarious swinging owlets that I plan to make as well. I threw in the pic of the crib bedding too to show it all together.
Also today I spruced up our profile. We will get it printed and handed over to LSS this week. I am so excited to be in the book!

In the book!

We are in! Yay! Now I just need my new computer so that I can update our profile. I am so excited, I hope things move quickly from here.

I did it! My first baby item!

I ordered the little orange owl bedding! Brian loves it. I sure hope we get into the book soon now because it will be torture to have all this cute stuff and no baby. I think the car seat will be my next step since we are going to be looking at buying a new car soon, I want to have it to try in the cars.
I ran into a little obstacle in updating our profile for the book. My computer got a virus last week and I lost my hard drive. Thank God I have a lot of pictures and our profile power point saved on an external hard drive, but I did loose a lot of our more current pictures that I had not backed up yet. Warning, do not do an image search for modern baby items and open the web pages because one of those sites is where I got the virus. Why cant they put the viruses on like porn sites or something, fry someone's computer who is already up to no good (not that everyone looking at porn is up to no good, but you know what I mean). Why on a baby nursery web site? I guess it is more fun that way.
