Studio Sunday - Raise the Roof

With two of the three walls up, it seemed like a good time to start building the roof.




I had some serious doubts at first. I never could quite seem to wrap my head around my husband's plans - I kept asking him the same stupid questions over and over again because I didn't understand.

 


He would tell me that it's a hip roof and try to explain and I would just look at him dumb-founded. I obviously don't have all that promising of a future in the construction industry. Lol...




Next up, we need to finish framing everything.

If you're interested in following this project from start to finish, you can follow my blog and keep an eye out for posts tagged "the evolution of my studio" or you can like The Keeper of the Memories on Facebook if you want to make sure that you definitely don't miss anything.

Have a great week!

Studio Sunday - The Walls are Going Up

We're definitely getting there...




The guys have been outside building the walls one by one and they're starting to go up - slowly, but surely... The weather hasn't exactly been cooperating for the last several weeks, though. Talk about a painstakingly slow process. We'll have a few nice days and then end up with either an asinine amount of snow or below zero temperatures.




Right now, two of the walls are up and we have one to go. Here's to hoping we can get this project finished sometime in the next few months.

The next thing on the list is building the roof...

On Being a Mama

Hi! Long time, no talk - atleast not about anything aside from the studio project. Lol...

Just a quick post today to share my latest creative endeavor. With all of my scrapbooking and mixed media/art journaling supplies being packed away in boxes for the time-being while we finish my space, I've been doing a lot more writing on being a mama.




We finished the windows last night, though, so it's only a matter of time until I'm back with more of my usual. So exciting! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy reading about my experiences with being a first-time mama to Little Baby E.

Have a great week!

Studio Sunday - The Plans

The guys are, no doubt, still hard at work. Here's a quick sketch - it's only a rough draft, though, because we haven't finalized all of the details, but it atleast gives you an idea.


 
We're officially framing at this point. The foundation is completely finished. Go us!

So, what's next? The walls are going up...

Studio Sunday - Don't Walk All Over Me

This is the mid-week edition. Lol...

When the guys finally got done framing the floor, they moved on to actually putting the subfloor down - not entirely sure what we're putting over this yet - ceramic tile, carpet, or hardwood - but it's looking awesome. We have some time to figure it out, though. It'll be a while before everything is all framed in.

Seriously, though, my husband is rocking this entire project at this point. Look at him go!




If you look closely, you can also see that they're starting to frame the walls. Slowly but surely...

We definitely still have a lot more work to do - all of walls need to be framed, the roof needs to be built, windows and doors need to go in, and everything needs to be finished.

Have a great weekend!

Studio Sunday - Floored

Just a quick update today...
 
Being finished with the foundation meant everything getting back-filled with gravel, so there's no more hole and there's no more ugly/orange/plastic construction fence. Finally!
 
 


I still can't wrap my head around the progress... everything is cleaned up and the floor is framed. The guys are officially working at ground level now, which sounds almost silly to actually say out loud, but keep in mind that for the last few months, they've been working in the hole, so... No, I'm really not crazy, just floored. Great little play on words there, right? Lol...

Have a great weekend!

Studio Sunday - Pour Me Some Walls

By December, we were starting to build the forms to pour walls for the foundation - ok, well... actually, it was more like my husband and the guys, but you get the idea.




I just went outside with them every once in a while to take a few pictures - oh, and occasionally I took drinks out for them as well. You know, because I've been extremely helpful throughout this entire process. Can you tell? Lol...




Thor helped too - by walking across the forms, ofcourse.




when all was said and done and the walls were poured, the forms came down and the guys started framing...

Do you have a furbaby that likes to be in the middle of things? Leave me a comment and tell me about it!

Grow Your Blog Party 2015.

Good morning! Hi! Thanks for stopping by!

My name's Cristi - most people call me Crisann. I'm a 31 year old artist, writer, and blogger. Ofcourse, I still do the 9-to-5 thing too. Around here, though, I'm the keeper of the memories and a first-time mama to a beautiful boy - my little baby E. I live near Pittsburgh, PA with my husband, the little guy, and our two dogs.

This past year has been... well, a whirlwind, to say the least. You see, there were two things that I wanted more than anything else in life - yes, you read that right - two, but I digress. I haven't been blogging anywhere near as much as I normally do because those two things are keeping me extremely busy.. So, back to the two things, if you're curious - one was, ofcourse, the little guy. The other was a studio.

I started the year by finishing up my document the bump project.





My little baby e made his grand entrance into this world and life was forever-changed - for the better, though, no doubt.


 
 
I also switched things up and started working on some things that were a little out of the ordinary for me. Throughout the process of creating a space for the little guy, I realized just how much I enjoy projects like this.
 

 
 
 
Not too long after, we starting working on the evolution of my studio - and we've been working on this project, more or less, since.
 
 
 
 
Ofcourse, there's still scrapbooking...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
If you're interested, you can also read some of what I've written recently on being a mama.
 
And, ofcourse, there's a whole lot more, so be sure to explore all of the links on the right side bar. If you're interested in seeing more of my favorite projects, you can check out last year's grow your blog party post here - you may need to scroll down a bit. 
 
Leave me a comment and tell me about all the different kinds of things that you do. Also, I'd love for you to follow my blog if you're interested in seeing what I'm up to this year. 
 
I hope you'll also like or follow my facebook page. I post all kinds of exciting things there - updates on the evolution of my studio and the little guy, ofcourse, but also lots of other awesome things I find online.
 
Oh, and one more thing - if this year's party is anywhere near the size of last year's, it's going to take some time to get through all the blogs, so please don't be disappointed if I don't get to yours this weekend. I promise I will as soon as I can, though.

eta: the grow your blog party is an online networking event so kindly hosted by Vicki at 2 bags full. If you haven't already, you can visit her blog for a complete list of the blogs participating. Here's a link to the grow your blog party post.

Have a totally awesome weekend and happy creating!

Studio Sunday - A Foundation

We started to rebuild at the end of November. Surprisingly, it was still relatively warm at that point.




First things first, the guys built all of the forms for the foundation. We had a few issues with the weather postponing things, but... worse things have happened, right?




I called and scheduled the truck to pour the footer, and somehow, I also ended up outside in the rain at 11pm the night before the truck was scheduled to get things finished up. Talk about doing things at the last minute. Lol...




Hard to believe that just a few days before these pictures were taken, there was nothing there except for a hole...




After the footer was poured, all of the forms were removed, and the drains were installed, everything was back-filled with gravel - and, ofcourse, we had a foundation.

Studio Sunday - Breaking Ground


Several months ago, I posted about planning a space for me

This project had actually been in the planning stages for quite some time, but in November, we officially broke ground on it.



 
We demolished our existing enclosed porch and started over again. 

The plan is a sunroom-style studio with space for the little guy to play as well as for mama to create and daddy to work - so definitely a multipurpose room, to say the least. 

We ordered all of the doors and windows and, ofcourse, everything else that we would need as well. My husband took a day off, rented an excavator, and demolished the existing foundation... 

 

 
At that point, we had a hole - and we started to rebuild. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about this, but I'm sure you can imagine. Lol... 

If you're interested in following this project from start to finish, definitely follow my blog and keep an eye out for posts tagged "the evolution of my studio." 

Oh, and don't forget to leave me a comment and tell me about your most recent remodeling project.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Half-birthday, Little Guy!

Happy half-birthday, little guy!




It's completely amazing to me how much he's grown and changed already.

These days, him talking to himself or kicking around in his crib wakes me up before his cries do.

At this point, I can put him on the floor with some toys scattered around him and he'll happily play all by himself.

If I sit facing him, he reaches out to touch my face and if Thor comes over to him, he pats him on the nose.

He's apparently decided he wants to sleep on his side. I put him down on his back and he rolls sideways and stretches out.

Love this little guy!

Growing and Changing...

Last month, I did a blog post very similar to this, but since little baby E keeps growing and changing, I wanted to post an update - these are the things I want to remember about our day-to-day.

06:00am-07:00am - Wake up. Wake up the little guy. Get dressed. Get him changed and dressed. Finish gathering everything up that needs to go to work or daycare - make sure his diaper bag is packed, get his bottles put back in his bag, etc. Little baby E still doesn't seem to have much of an interest in eating breakfast at home, so...




07:00am-07:30am - Drop the little guy off at daycare and get myself to work because, more than likely, I'm running late. Texting my boss to tell him that there's absolutely no way I'm going to make it there on time is sadly becoming a daily occurrence.

12:00pm-03:00pm or 01:00pm-04:00pm - Naptime for E at daycare.




05:00pm-05:30pm - Get off, stop and pick up anything I need as quickly as possible, and pick up the little guy. Get both of us home.

05:30pm-06:00pm - Get the little guy fed and changed.

06:00pm-07:00pm or 08:00pm - Most of the time, E takes a 1-2 hr. nap. This is usually my "downtime," meaning I do my best to do absolutely nothing. Once in a while, I take a nap too. If I were less tired and more motivated, I would probably spend this time scrapbooking. Lol...

07:00pm or 08:00pm-09:00pm - This is usually our time. Most evenings, we spend this time in his room. We read, play, sing, etc.




09:00pm-11:30pm - Dinnertime for the little guy - now that we're starting solids, this is all kinds of exciting. Get the little guy bathed and read a few books... He usually has a bottle, we cuddle, and he generally falls asleep in my arms.




11:30pm - Make sure everything is ready for the next morning and get myself to bed.

04:00am-05:00am - E wakes up - sometimes, I can just give him his pacifier or rock him for a few minutes and he falls back asleep. Sometimes, he has a 2oz. bottle.




Obviously, life is unpredictable, especially with little ones - and some days, our schedule doesn't come anywhere near resembling this, but for the most part, this is an average day with little baby E at 5 months old.

Have a great weekend!

Life, Work, Balance, and Daycare...

I've been reading alot lately - definitely more than I've been writing. You know, because I have all of this free time now that I didn't have before. Lol...

Actually, I just prefer reading to watching TV, so that's what I've been doing during all of the endless hours that I spend feeding the little guy. I multitask quite successfully these days - yay for tablets and touchscreens.

Unfortunately, though, I almost never blog anymore. Not because I don't want to, but because I'd so much rather spend that time with the little guy.

This post is my version of "a day in the life," so if you're curious about our day-to-day, keeping reading.




So, what does life actually look like for us these days - you know, with a 4 month old and being back at work fulltime?

Let's see...

06:00am-07:00am - Wake up. Wake up the little guy. Get dressed. Get him changed and dressed. Finish gathering everything up that needs to go to work or daycare. Make sure his diaper bag is packed, get his bottles put back in his bag, etc. Little baby E wants no part of food this early, which is good for me, but bad for daycare...

07:00am-07:30am - Drop the little guy off at daycare and get myself to work because, more than likely, I'm running late. I never actually realized how much harder it was to coordinate getting two people up and dressed and ready to leave.

12:00pm-03:00pm or 01:00pm-04:00pm - Naptime at daycare. Unfortunately, there's no naptime for mama at work. By this point, I've usually woken up enough - in other words, I've finally consumed enough caffeine - to actually focus on something for more than 2 minutes, which makes this my most productive time of the day. On the weekends, this is usually when I do housework.

05:00pm-05:30pm - Get off, stop and pick up anything I need as quickly as possible, and pick up the little guy. We usually get home around 5pm, give or take.

05:30pm-06:00pm - Get the little guy fed and changed. Occasionally, he takes a short nap. Dinnertime for him - now that we're starting solids, this is all kinds of exciting.

06:00pm-09:00pm - Cuddle, read, play, sing, etc. This is the only quality time I actually get to spend with him during the week. That's why we're still living out of laundry baskets. Lol...

08:00pm-09:00pm - Get the little guy bathed, read a book, feed him, cuddle, and get him to bed. Get his bottles washed, make sure daddy and I have eaten, and try to get some of the dishes done. Get my clothes gathered up for the following day. Make sure everything is as together as possible - I do everything I possibly can to ensure the morning goes smoothly. It almost never works - because, you know, things come up - but I try. Lol...

11:30pm-12:30pm - This is our first wake up. Sometimes, he wants to eat... Sometimes, he just wants his pacifier. Alot of the time, he just wants mama.

03:00am-04:00am - This is our second wakeup. He almost always eats about 2oz. This is also about the time of the morning that I'm so tired that he ends up falling asleep on my chest - not exactly where I want him to be, but it's still where he seems to end up.

Rinse, lather, repeat - this doesn't change much. I've actually made it a priority to keep his schedule as consistent as possible. Lol...

Studio Sunday - Planning a Space for Me...

One of the things that I realized as I was putting together a space for the little guy is that I love designing - I am completely head over heels for creating spaces!

I'm sure, especially with as quiet as I've been lately, you're probably wondering what I've been up to, right?




I've been working on planning a space for me...

I told dh that we have to do something - we are seriously running out of space. Right now, my scrapbooking supplies are, more or less, scattered everywhere and taking over our entire house - there are things in his office, in the little guy's closet, in our bedroom, and even in the laundry room. Everything else is in the living room.

Don't ask me how I managed that. Lol...

At any rate, this is my inspiration board thus far: a space for me...

I also have a number of other studio-related Pinterest boards, if you're interested in taking a look...

studio spaces
studio spaces in unique places

studio spaces - storage
studio spaces - organization
studio spaces - cool things i've found
studio spaces - project life
studio spaces - finishing touches

We haven't finalized the details yet, so I really can't share much more at the moment, but it looks like my space will be our enclosed porch/sunroom that spans the entire length of the house - about 24 ft.

That definitely presents some design challenges because three walls will be mostly windows, which means I won't have much vertical storage, but I should have quite a bit of horizontal workspace - dh actually mentioned calling and having someone come out and talk to us about windows and doors, so I have that to look forward to sometime really soon.

If you're interested in following this project from start to finish, definitely follow my blog and keep an eye out for posts tagged "the evolution of my studio."

Have you ever planned a space from the ground up - is there anything you wish you had done differently or anything you wish you'd thought of at the time?

Leave me a comment and tell me about it!

Have a great week!

Everything Else Can Wait

I can't believe a certain little someone is 12 weeks old already. Talk about crazy!
 
 
 
 
For that matter, I can't believe how difficult it is these days to find time to scrapbook. Who would've thought?
 
I'm back at work, though, and the little guy started daycare. By the time we get home in the evening and eat, it's almost time to take a bath and get ready for bed. By that point, I'm exhausted and I'm lucky if I get his bottles washed. That's about it these days.  
 
I've been trying to spend as much time as possible with him - we sing and play and read and cuddle. He's definitely not getting any younger. I can't even wrap my head around the fact that we're already a quarter of the way through his first year.
 
I've learned a very valuable lesson already - he's not going to wait, so everything else can... I mean, seriously - this little guy is growing up with or without me...
 
You know what, though - I'm fairly certain that he has no idea that his daddy and I are basically  living out of laundry baskets or that the floors haven't been vacuumed yet this week or that his baby album isn't even started. Lol...
 
 


I did, however, manage to find some time to do a little bit of shopping - then again, there's always time for shopping, right? American Crafts Shimelle and My Mind's Eye Jubilee - ended up with some of each of these collections.

Some day, I'm sure, there won't be so much chaos and I'll actually get to use the stuff I got. In the meantime, here's to hoping...

Have a great week!

Being a Baby Is Hard Work...

Haven't posted in a while because I've been so busy w/ little baby E...




I can't even begin to wrap my head around how fast these first few months have gone. It's so amazing to watch him grow and change.

He's such a handsome little guy! lol...


7.02.2014

Welcome to the World...

Finally got the cover page done for the little guy's baby album - this page has taken me like a month to do because I've only been working on it for a minute here or two minutes there. Lol...

Crazy, right?




Someday, I'll get back into a routine. For now, well... yea, not happenin'...

How long did it take you to get into a routine after you had your baby? When did you start working on your little one's baby album? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Have a great week!

Mixed Media & Art Journaling Workspace...

It feels like its been forever since I've posted - I guess, in a sense, it has been...

The little guy is finally starting to get a little better with the idea of not being in my arms 24-7, so... Today, he spent some time in his bouncer and I spent some time reorganizing my mixed media & art journaling workspace.

This isn't even close to everything, but its what I've managed to get unpacked thus far.

This is the space as a whole... so much for the idea of "pretty," right? Lol... I gave up on "pretty" when I moved downstairs - remember, this is an unfinished corner of our living room.




The black mini cubeical has 6x6 paper pads, ink pads, etc. My Copics are, ofcourse, in the divided utensil holder on top of it. The making memories embellishment center holds various paints, inks, and stains. The two-tier serving tray holds all of my sprays. the antonius insert in front of it is filled with gelatos and big brush pens. All of my black markers are in there as well.

The two blue Tupperware containers are overflow storage from when I started packing. The three iris containers on the left are stamps. There are also a few smaller Tupperware containers that hold alcohol inks, embossing powders, etc. on the right.

Here are a few more pictures to give you a closer look at everything...


 


This is my work surface - it's so clean right now... I really need to do something about that. Lol...




We'll see how long it takes to actually sit down and work on a page or a canvas, especially with the little guy here now... Did you scrap when your kids were babies? Leave me a comment and let me know - I'm curious...

Have a great week!


6.17.2014

document the bump. third trimester.

I've been putting off writing this blog post for a few weeks now - things have been crazy here lately. when I do get a few seconds throughout the day, I've been trying to sneak in a little bit of housework or eat or shower or take a nap - basically, do all the things that are a whole lot harder once you become a mama.




my third trimester was complete insanity...

me - much more tired and irritable than I normally am because I had been up all night throwing up because every time I would try to relax and/or lie down, the acid reflux would flare up with a vengeance - it was miserable, I assure you. here's to hoping that if we ever have another baby, I manage to bypass it altogether. wishful thinking, I'm sure...

ofcourse, still trying to work 6 days a week - that got much, much more difficult toward the end. every day, I literally drug myself out of bed and begrudgingly made my way to the office. I was considered fulltime until I was 39w, 6d and had been up all night having contractions - there was just no way I was going anywhere at that point...

still putting together the little guy's room around working and being sick... trying to make things as perfect as I could. this was one of the highlights of my pregnancy - I realized how much I enjoyed shopping and decorating and, atleast in some ways, actually being "domestic." now, if a certain husband would finish the rest of the house...

eating constantly, gaining lots of weight, growing out of just about everything in my closet, and finally having no choice but to buy maternity clothes - I bought exactly four tees and a maxi skirt. I wore yoga pants throughout most of my pregnancy and I was still wearing them the day before I delivered. lol...

going to the doctor's just about every week - finding out that I passed my glucose test, hearing his heartbeat via doppler, and hearing the doctors' guesses about how much he weighed - they were wrong, by the way... getting told I was either gaining too much or gaining too little... and, when all was said and done, finding out that I was having a baby on my due date whether I liked it or not...

being petrified about anything and everything even remotely related to labor and delivery - reading and researching, putting together a birth plan which, for what's it's worth, never even made it into my hospital bag... fearing the unknown, mostly... worrying that I'd end up with a c-section... just basically being anxious about the whole thing.

finally hitting the point where I was more miserable than I was afraid and begging and pleading for him to just come already - at that point, I just wanted to go into labor and be done with it - I was so sick, tired, and sore that I didn't care anymore how much short-term pain I'd have to go through. I really just wanted to not be pregnant anymore...

so, how did the whole labor and delivery thing end up going?

two days before my due date, I started having a lot of pain - it started off as just crampy and progressed to full-blown contractions every couple of minutes, but when I called the doctor's office, they said I wasn't in labor, so... I continued to suffer through it. I walked alot... I tried my damnedest to sleep, but obviously that wasn't happened.

at my 40 week appointment, which was on my due date, my blood pressure was high and I was diagnosed with preeclampsia. I was induced that day.

so, we ended up at the hospital, got me admitted, and we went about the business of labor and delivery... I won't go too far into detail, except to say I waited a long time to ask for an epidural and when I finally did, it didn't work for very long. I ended up being given stadol. after that, I remember very little. I do remember telling a nurse that I didn't want to push because it hurt and I remember them putting him on my chest and me telling him "welcome to the world, little guy."

when all was said and done, though, all that mattered to me was that he was here and that he was healthy. It doesn't matter how miserable I was for the nine months he grew inside of me or how much pain I was in for the nine hours I was in labor because you know what? He's complete perfection and the whole experience has been nothing less than amazing. he's my little miracle and I wouldn't trade him for the world.

Welcome to the World, Little Baby E...

Welcome to the world and happy birthday, little baby E...

Edward Thomas was born on May 30 at 6:45pm. He was 6lb. 11oz. and 21 inches. We're all completely and totally head over heels for him.

Mama and baby are both doing well.




I'm sure, by now, that most of you probably realized that the little guy was born and that I was taking a sort of "babymoon" - definitely not intentionally, I promise.

It took exactly one day after he was born to realize that mamahood was a 24-7 job. Lol... Someone is a really slow eater, so most of my time and effort has gone to around-the-clock feedings. By the time we finish eating and get changed, it's time to start all over again, so... the good news is that we've already gained a few ounces since we were discharged from the hospital and we're starting to eat a little more at a time. That definitely makes this mama happy.

Now, it's just a matter of really getting to know eachother.

I make no promises as to how the next few weeks will go. I need to start transitioning into my new role as a mama and I'm not sure how much, if any, time that will leave to focus on anything except the little guy.

I'd like to get my pregnancy album put together and I need to start working on little E's baby book, but again - not sure how that'll work out... I'm also planning to be back sometime this week w/ my third trimester post, which will include the little guy's birth story.

In the meantime, I hope you'll stick with me as I learn how to be both a mama and a scrapbooker. It should definitely be an interesting journey. 

Until then...

Have a great week!

document the bump: 39 weeks

I know, I know - i'm a week or so late with this post. I have a really good reason, though, I promise.




how far along am I? 39 weeks.
weight gain? still 148 lbs.
how am I feeling? overall, like crap - headaches/heat sick - that type of thing, as well as the usual acid reflux.
what am I thinking? I still can't believe i'm going to be a mama, especially after all these years. dh still "reminds" me every day that I "can't get pregnant" - it's become quite the joke between us. if you're reading this and you've ever experienced infertility, just keep in mind that miracles really do happen - the little guy is living proof of that. as much as it might seem like i'm complaining throughout these posts each week, really - i'm not... I want them to be an accurate picture of my pregnancy when I look back on them in the future and that's, ofcourse, come w/ lots of ups and downs. in reality, though, unless you've been there and done that, you can't even begin to realize how grateful I am for the gift that this pregnancy is - it's something that I thought i'd never get to experience - and yet, here I am, 39 weeks pregnant - full term... amazing!
what am I eating? a little bit of everything - cravings are a wonderful thing. lol...
cravings? still stuck on cold stuff - milkshakes, smoothies, etc.
what am I looking forward to? this new chapter in life...
how's the little one doing? everything looks great w/ him - really, we're just hanging out in there and continuing to grow at this point. one more week...
what's on my to do list? tie up any loose ends before "baby day," which could, atleast in theory, be any day now...

document the bump: 38 weeks.

I cannot believe the end is finally in sight. it feels like forever-ago that I found out I was pregnant. what an incredible journey thus far! I've spent so much time documenting all the changes taking place in our lives - big and small... eventually, hopefully sometime soon, i'm planning to start compiling all of these posts into an album of some sort, so keep an eye out for that.  
 
 


how far along am I? 38 weeks.
weight gain? 146-148 lbs.
how am I feeling? eh, at this point I've, more or less, had enough of this being pregnant thing - the novelty has definitely worn off.
what am I thinking? someone seems comfy in there - he must be happy where he's at. I was reading a thread on baby center that they could just imagine their little one w/ a picket sign that says "hell no! not going to go!" yep, that's kind of how i'm starting to feel...
what am I eating? turkey subs w/ mozzarella cheese and mayo
cravings? hershey's cookies and cream milkshakes
what am I looking forward to? please, just get this baby out of me!
how's the little one doing? still growing - they're estimating that he weighs over 7lbs. now, we're just playing the waiting game - let's go, little guy! hurry up!
what's on my to do list? getting one of the cars cleaned out and the car seat installed and packing a bag for us - if nothing else, we need a camera, my tablet, snacks for him, etc.
baby gaga says? "The final fat details are being rounded off before your rocket-baby's big launch onto planet earth and into your arms." the end is finally in sight... here's to hoping for an easy l&d, a healthy baby, and a quick recovery!
