mama to mama

I was sitting at the computer browsing while feeding Infant son, I ran across a post that really caught my attention, a blog called mama to mama, mamas handcrafting for mamas.  Currently they are doing a drive to make caps and receiving blankets for newborn infants in Haiti.  I love the idea of handcrafting things for mamas and babies who really need them, making a difference doesn't have to be difficult or expensive.

Now if I can just remember where my flannel bin is...

What's in a name anyway?

So I just spent 2 days thinking of a name for my blog, I think I'm happy with "Betty Boogie's Oddventure" but I'm hoping my future doesn't hold TOO much of the ODD part. I guess I believe in the power of a name so want to be sure of what I choose. I have always had trouble naming things, I remember my dolls when I was a little girl.  Ya their names were "tenderlove" and "talking tenderlove" cause that  is what the box said.   Now I normally think of myself as pretty creative but somehow naming something has always been a challenge.  My firstborn daughter waited 13 days for a name, second Daughter 3 days and Son 1day.  SO  I guess I am doing better, still I think of a name as being so valuable and meaningful I would just hate to mess it up.

So here's to Betty Boogie's oddventure!
