An Announcement

Hello, my bloggy friends! I have been absent for WAY too long. I've missed you all and am super happy to be back! To kick things off again here at Lovely Little Life I have a little announcement to make...

Yes, it's true! I'm expecting! So far everything has been fine this time around, but please continue to pray that this miracle baby will keep growing strong! I am currently 16 weeks + 2 days... Baby H is due on December 23rd! I promise to share all the details and fill you in on how things are going very soon.

Thank you all for your support and prayers over the past two years! I am so blessed to have so many people cheering for me. Please know I appreciate every one of you and haven't forgotten that there are thousands of women still fighting the battle of infertility. I have had so many thoughts about that during this pregnancy... I promise to write again soon and share!

Life Lately


Wow, it has been forever since I blogged! I just wanted to write a quick note to you all to let you know that no, I am not dead. I am alive and well! It has been a crazy past month for me... let me fill you in on a little bit of what's been happenin' so you don't feel like I'm purposely ignoring you. 

My husband and I went through yet another infertility treatment cycle last month... it was the first since our last miscarriage and by far the hardest yet. I wasn't 100% emotionally ready for it, and had no idea how much it would affect me physically. It was rough. Sadly it didn't result in a pregnancy... and I'll be honest, it was more difficult to deal with than usual since the cycle was so much more physically and emotionally intense.

Other than that it's just been regular day to day life stuff that has gotten in the way of blogging. I wish I were super woman and could do it all, but I'm SO not. I love the quote "You can do anything, but not everything." Wow - so true, right? So yeah... I do what I can and sometimes that means bloggy-land has to be put to the side for a few weeks.

Anyway, I just wanted to check in, say that I miss you, and see what you've all been up to lately! What kind of projects have you been working on? Please do share... I'm going through DIY withdrawals over here in the ice covered Midwest!

DIY Washi Tape Valentine's Day Cards

February is here, folks, so if you aren't already in full blown Valentine's Day mode then it is now officially time to do so! This weekend I whipped up some super simple Valentine's Day cards using one of my favorite crafting supplies... Washi Tape! It seriously has never been so easy to create custom Valentines. Here is what you'll need to make it happen:

- Blank cards
- Plain white cardstock or paper
- Washi Tape
- Something to cut out letters or shapes. You can use anything from a die cut machine, regular old scissors, an exacto knife, or scrapbook punches. Any of those will do fabulously!

So how does this work? Easy peasy - simply tape strips of washi onto the plain white cardstock or paper as pictured below.

Next, use your cutting tool of choice to cut shapes or letters within the strips of tape. Use double sided tape to secure your washi tape cut outs to the blank cards. And you're done!

What kind of Valentine's Day crafts do you plan to make this month? I would love to hear what is on your crafting to do list!
