So the countdown is on. Harlow turns one on Saturday, and family from all over descends on the unfinished, haphazardly decorated experiment that is the Sweazy abode. The DIY frenzy began weeks ago, however.  Even though we're just having a small family gathering, that hasn't stopped us from turning into complete art school dorks. We busted out the gocco to handprint our invitations, and we are making...things. 

I don't want to spoil it for the four readers of this blog who also happen to be family, so suffice it to say the house is covered in craft paper, glue and some serious crafter ego. Caleb stole my idea and got to work on HIS version, so all I have to say is that it's ON, brother.

I'm really bummed that Harlow's present isn't going to be ready in time, and for the first time its nothing to do with procrastination. I truly started work on it months ago, and it's required a lot of man hours and some sketchy neighborhoods (any guesses?) so I won't get to unveil it at the party. Like she'll care. 

But I will.

Oh my - already turning one! I cannot imagine what it will be like when our little guy hits that mark. Congratulations to all of you!
