Had to turn the computer back on to make this post. Forgot that certain people will think that I’m in labour if I don’t post
Here’s a picture of the little guy.
The scan is awful, but the ultrasound wasn’t that great to begin with. It’s basically just a shot of his head. Here’s my attempt to explain the blobby features…
Awww, ain’t he just the cutest?
While waiting for our breakfast muffins to heat up, I noticed that the hospital’s breakfast shop had this for sale:
Being St. Patrick’s day and all, I had to get it for Jaylene. She was thrilled with the shamrock design and wore it all day.
I’ve examined it carefully and hope to make some of our own designs in the future.
May you find your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Some more ATCs I made up. Again using the double sided tape with powder brushed on. And on to the winners…

Please email me you address as soon as possible. I’d like to mail out these minicollage packs before the baby arrives. Thanks to everyone for their advice and links.
I was also inspired by the double sided challenge from Byhand card project using powders and double sided tape. I punched the shamrocks out, put the tape on the back and brushed bronze powder overtop of the “kiss” ATC.
I’ll be announcing my March giveaway winners tomorrow, and I hope to mail the goodies out this week, as long as baby boy doesn’t show up early
I think this is one of the most ingenious things ever. When buying microwaveable popcorn at 7-11 (I have neither microwave nor airpop popper) they’ll make a nifty little handle from napkins/serviettes and staple it to the bag. That way, your popcorn stays relatively hot until you can open it up and munch on it, and you don’t burn your fingers. Do they do this in the West?
I wanted to tell y’all about Lisa’s newest countdown. Very Shamrocky. If I can get my printer to work, I hope to make up some goodies tomorrow.
Edited to add: I made the ruler card last year, it uses fibers from
We had a lazy day today. Saw the doctor in the morning and only had to wait an hour or so because we know a little trick. Our number was 11, which is actually double that because she’s an ob/gyn and does both sets of patients at the same time but on different number systems. However, we got to the hospital half an hour before it opened, so we were able to sneak in somehow a long time before our number was called. Next time our number is something crazy like 21 so we’re not going to show up until half an hour before the hospital “closes”. We’ll probably still have to wait an hour or so. Doc says everything is fine with our little boy.
After that we ran some errands and then stopped over at the white carrot festival. Couldn’t find a parking spot and didn’t feel like walking to the festivities so we kept driving and had a nice jaunt through the mountains. Then home again and I had a loooong nap. Shabu Shabu for supper (Japanese Hot Pot) and then home to do some cleaning up. That’s definitely not an interesting day, but it suits us just fine.
Happy weekend to y’all!
Tonight we stopped by the Kuandu Temple to check out their lantern festival. The rain had stopped for a bit and we were able to stay dry while checking out the scenes. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed but it could be that I’m grumpy, pregnant and exhausted…
They had three large displays. The front one was of piggies playing musical instruments and singing Kareoke. It looked cheap and gaudy but as Ahji pointed out, was spot on for Modern Taiwanese fun. They are Kareoke fanatics!
The second display was half way up the mountain and was done in a Narnia sort of theme. Jaylene loved it because of the fairies, mermaids and unicorns.
The third display was more my style. Lots of traditional craft and skills were shown, such as pottery, carpentry and how to make oil. Too bad it’s at the very top, that’s a lot of stairs!
Jaylene’s favorite part of the evening was burning the sparklers. I loved those as a kid and they’re still fun for the grown up me
No pictures but the show is on until April 8th so we might go back again. If you went during the afternoon you could rent bikes (I recommend the DBK store, it’s the best) and check out the bird sanctuary and warf, then see the lanterns after sunset. A fun day trip.
