Fun with Swaps

On my favorite crafting forum, Craftster, I have become addicted to swaps. It's just what it sounds like: someone organizes a swap with a specific theme, you sign up and are paired with a partner, and you swap crafted items. Fun! So far I've done a pincushion swap and an embellished onesies swap. I'm in the process of a fall scarf swap. My pincushion swap partner was from England. See the picture of the pincushion I sent to her. Here are some photos of the onesies I made to send to my swap partner in Virginia:

And of course, what is a post without a picture of Goody? You can just barely see her two teeth!

She's been doing this since she was about 8 weeks old. If you are skeptical:

Baby Cuteness

Goody is growing so fast. I am not sure how tall she is these days, but she weighs almost 16 pounds now. We haven't had a doctor's appointment since she was 2 months old, so I don't know her height. We don't have as many doctor's appointments because I have decided not to vaccinate until she's at least 2. There are many reasons, of course, and you probably won't all agree with my decisions, but the key word there is MY. A Univeristy of Washington doctor wrote this informative article on the subject. And there are many, many discussions on the subject online. One of my favorite sources is

In any case, she is happy and heathly. Here are some pictures to prove it:

It's official!

The house is for sale. Have a look at the listing here. I hate for anything to be drawn out once I've made up my mind, so I'm hoping it sells soon and I don't have to deal with the suspense.
