      What did you use to write on your doilie? Can,t find the rignt pen or nib…

      • Melissa says:

        It’s a paper doilie that I made with a hole punch. Pre-made doilies aren’t nearly substantial enough to hold ink well. I used a dip pen and ink for this.

      Loved every bite of this popcorn! Your recipe was perfect. Thanks for sharing. Off to the store to buy more corn…

    3. Helen says:

      I used to make kettle corn on the stovetop. When it came out well, it was delicious, but when I was less lucky it would really burn badly. Now I use a pan with a glass top so I can tell if it starts smoking.

      I think it’s adorable! The draping is quite nice, and the fact that you’re not afraid of patterns is refreshing. Too much pregnancy stuff is STILL ooy gooey sweet or boring.

    2. Amber says:

      You look beautiful! I love the chevrons and the colors work well with your coloring. Pregnancy looks good on you.

    3. Shelby says:

      Way to go mama! The print is fun and you’re comfortable wearing it and that is really all that matters! Your honesty and attitude are spot on. Best of luck in the final stretch!

      It’s great! You look great in it!! The only negative thing I can imagine is how many women are jealous of how good you look in it :)

    5. Kristin H says:

      90% of fashion is confidence, so who cares! really? :) You look simply radiant!

    6. Alysa says:

      Juniper is the sweetest name! Excited that you’re in the home stretch. This muumuu looks so comfy!

    7. Alice C. says:

      I think you look gorgeous!! (As always)

    8. Emily says:

      Love the name! You look fabulous! I thought I would sew more during pregnancy too but I was too sick the whole time.

    9. Jen says:

      Definitely not chevron whale, though I wouldn’t classify it as Grecian goddess either…I’m thinking more Chic Chevron Babe! You look amazing, and I’m jealous of your thrift store fabric finds :)

    10. Julia says:

      You make me SO happy! Your little quote is fabulous and I’m sharing it with my sister that is due in a week. Hooray for Juniper!

      I recall taking a calligraphy class in college, as part of my minor in ART. However, I never kept up with it…. so many years ago. I’ve been retired from teaching high school English for almost 3 years, so that WAS decades ago, for SURE! “To beat the summer boredom?” I’ve been crocheting scarves, shawls & lapghans PLUS stamping greeting cards to gift in sets of 24 or 30 for relatives & friends. Although many don’t send cards any longer, I focus on THANK YOU, GET WELL and BIRTHDAY cards. I need to spend time on projects as I was recovering from major surgery in June & currently chemo treatments every 3 weeks through Oct. Sarah in Minneapolis

      • Melissa says:

        You’ve been keeping very busy this summer! Mad props for you staying active with projects. I’ve heard chemo to be a very draining thing. Best of luck with beating cancer!

    Time is ticking on this baby bomb. I’m getting bigger and more uncomfortable by the minute. It’s not a complaint, just a fact of life when growing a human. Sleeping has been particularly tricky with ...
