TERRIBLE DAY FOR ME AND MY SWAP BABY!!! well I had mine almost finished and for some reason the head split right behiind the ear. So how i had to order a new kit. And it was not a second quaility kit. But it should be here in the morning so i will get to painting it.


#12

I am so sorry to hear its head split. Did BB say anything? Maybe you can glue it and make the split look like a scratch and at least donate it or something. A daycare might like it.

Thank you ladies. So far I made a quilt, paci, outfit, head band, bracelet, birth certificate, and I will have some pictures today maybe to print for babies first photos album. She is dressed in the things. I am going to experiment with a shoe idea today I hope, I am off work but I need some foam. I am looking for the right color bottle and was wondering what else I needed. I wanted to do everything but I also wanted to stay within the rules. I have an idea for second outfit since it is allowed, I so love being creative. Thanks to a friend here last night who gave me a pep talk I am ready to face the world with my babies again. I am so excited about this now again. I took her eyebrows and eyelashes out and did them again and again,but looked pretty much the same to me. I always leave eyelashes a little long for some peoples taste so the new mom can cut them the length she wants if I cannot get her to see them before I deliver. I have seen the preaching short eyelashes but I have seen so many with long beautiful lashes I wish I personally could have. Sorry I am venting a little today. I am about to get to go home after a 48 hour shift at work in about 2.5 hours. I got about 6 hours sleep last night so I feel great this morning. Have a great day and I will see you online later today for sure. Hugs to all.
