So what made the time between November and now so hectic? Well besides the typical Christmas activities (which I never start early enough and am always doing late nights trying to get stuff done), I am happy to report that my family is growing. Over Thanksgiving we announced to family and friends that we are expecting our second child on June 11, 2008. This explains a lot of my previous posts complaining about being so tired! The first trimester was very tiring…luckily only that. I only had one week of nausea, but the tiredness stuck around a very long time and made my motivation go straight down the tubes! Since then, the tiredness has gone away and I am feeling great. I have even starting feeling the baby move which is the best part about pregnancy…although my husband can’t quite feel it yet. We have had a couple of ultrasounds (pic included from the first one…first one at 10 weeks and the second at 16 weeks) and as of right now the technician believes we are having a girl. She told us not to run out and buy pink though, so we have to wait till my next one on Jan. 24 to confirm that! Until then, we are thinking pink thoughts and my son seems to be pretty excited to be a big brother!
The only stamping that I have managed to do during this long period of time was my Christmas cards (a little late to show a picture of that, although I thought they turned out nice), a photo box (post on that one later), and stamping a border in my son’s new room (post on that one too…I am so proud of it!). So I have a couple things to show you, but unfortunately not a lot.
I am going to be transitioning my stamping area to a hopefully better spot in my house where I can get a little bit bigger work area, but I am a ways from completing that. Hopefully I will be able to get stamping again soon. For all of my customers out there, I will be working on creating my Stamp-A-Stack cards for my annual Stamp-A-Stack class and I was contemplating a “lunch tin to put them” in class as well. Plus I have new stuff coming to me and an order I want to put in, so I should have lots of fun stuff to play with soon! Till then, look for my next posts to see what I have been doing while I have been gone!
