{nifty thrifty sunday #225}

Hello everyone! Well, I hope there are still some of you showing up to this party. I have been gone FOREVER, I know.. :/

The reason behind my absence is the new love of my life. Our litte daughter was born in the beginning of December and made a dramatic entrance via c-section. It took quite some time to get over that - physically and emotionally.. So, I decided to concentrate on my private life for a while and put the blog on the back burner. I hope you all understand. ;)


Hopefully we'll get the blog back up and running with a little more frequency in posts and the weekly {nifty thrifty sunday}! I really can't wait to get back in to blogging and being creative. And I also can't wait to see all of your creativity!

Here are some of my favorites from the last {nifty thrifty sunday}:

{1} Lemon for Lulu: Samoa Cookie Bark
{2} Crazy Organized: Spray Painted Coffee Mugs

{3} Living la Vida Holoka: DIY Sinus Relief Wax Melts
{4} Strength & Sunshine: Blood Orange Quick Bread


{5} Mom Endeavors: Cheesy Pull Apart Pizza Bread
{6} My Suburban Kitchen: Pomegranate Pumpkin Crostini

  5. oh my goodness, CONGRATULATIONS!!! So happy to have you back…I figured maybe you were in the midst of a move but a baby?! even MORE exciting!!! Hope you are healing well, c-sections can be rough!

  6. Congratulations!!!

  7. Welcome back! Hope baby and momma are doing well – what a sweet reason to be gone :)

  8. Yay welcome back! Family always comes first and we know that, but it’s good to have you back. Are you going to post any pictures? Congrats on the new little one and Happy Easter to you and your family!

    • Thank you so much for your sweet welcome back and the congrats! :)
      I hope you and your family will have a wonderful Easter as well!
      Hugs! Vanessa

      PS: The hubby and I decided that we won’t post pictures of our daughter on the internet (or at least none of her face).. We don’t want her growing up and having pictures of herself floating around on the web. Hehe

      • I completely agree and understand – I feel the same way and won’t post pictures of my children. But I’m such a hypocrite – I won’t show my own kids faces but I want to see everyone else’s! :). Enjoy every moment girl!

  9. I happened to pop over and I’m so happy to see you back. Congratulations on your beautiful daughter. I had a C-section with my son too. The most important thing is a healthy baby no matter how they come into your life. Enjoy. Cuddle. Love. Time flies so fast. Mine is in college now.

    • Thank you SO much, Carolyn! :)
      Yes, the most important thing is a healthy baby! And, as scary as emergency C-sections are, I am extremely glad that we have that option nowadays.
      I know college-age doesn’t compare to the 3 1/2 months my daughter has been with us, but time DOES fly! Haha
      Happy Easter to you and your family!
      Hugs, Vanessa
