Two Drifters, Off To See The World

Je te present, mon nouveaux niece et neveu...

This is Z A...he is pretty charming for a newborn. Usually newborns look pretty sickly, kind of alien-like, but not this little guy. He came out a heart breaker. Watch out!

K is absolutely loving this new big sister gig. I'm sure she will do an excellent job and teach him all the important things, like every word to "Part of You World" from Little Mermaid and the ins-and-outs of Dora. That's really all anyone needs to know.

Then we have E as the other addition to the family. She weighs in at 6 lbs. 8 oz. and takes up 21 inches of space (These weights and measurements are entirely fabricated, but they are probably pretty close). She is also quite attractive for her early stage in life. A is also doing a good job satisfying the duties of elder sister. However, she does find the baby crying slightly alarming, but who can blame her. I find it alarming, as well. You can see concerned look expressed in this picture, which I think is adorable.
Another important update is that I finished another piece in the Z A Collection. It is a flashy number...a show stopper, really. This shirt is especially appropriate for Z A because K has already given him the nickname Sharky. Also, his dad is a regular on the surfing scene who has had a run in with a shark previously. A dramatic story for another time, fortunately Adam Sr. is still with us. There are still 2 more pieces that will be added to the Zach Adam Collection, so stay tuned - the best is yet to come.

I Think We've Hit Rock Bottom

Lately I have been scouring the internet for unique indie and/or vintage craft ideas that I can steal and use to make adorable outfits and art for my soon-to-be niece and nephew. I have come across some great fashion and decor, but there have also been low points. I would say this very possibly is the lowest. Like with any mistakes we make, we should learn from them. The lesson to be learned here: Stupid is never pretty. In this case, blonds DO NOT have more fun.

If you feel the erg to adorn your cat with a headdress, please opt for a less humiliating style. I would recommend dressing you cat as if he were from the docks of Limerick...

Next time we make pancakes at 2 AM, I want them to look like these. Well, preferably not just like these because the lady is pretty creepy. I couldn't make myself eat her, but you get the idea.
