The end of pregnancy brings on many things, including a need to clean! I have been busy sorting, stashing, dusting, arranging, you name it. With my little bursts of energy I feverishly organize some area of the house, and then promptly pop myself down on the sofa for a much deserved rest. Then get up and repeat.
I almost feel like I can't remember a time when I wasn't pregnant. It's so hard to believe that in a matter of weeks now it will all be over. That the little boy who is forever kicking away at my rib cage will be in the outside world, and that I will be his mother. Reminders are sprinkled all over the house in the form of bottles, strollers, baby hats, and blankets.
And while part of me is deathly afraid of being in charge of his little life, another part of me can not wait to begin it! I am walking around in almost constant pain of some sort, and while I've had an easier pregnancy than some women, I am ready to be done (and back to a normal diet!). If there are any baby whisperer's out there, please let my little guy know I'd like to have him a little early please. If he cooks too long he's going to present his mom with some serious challenges the doctors don't want her to face!
It is actually the work of my mom, creator behind all the lovelies over at Pine Hill Forest. I just updated her banner for her, and took the pictures of her newest line.
I am so in love with her newest creations, and own about 5 of them myself. These little zipper pouches have been my life saver when it comes to keep my knitting needles and notions organized. I'm also thinking I need a custom little one to have in my purse to hold the all important chap sticks and lip glosses that I can never find.
This week Mitsy of Artmind asked us to create a mosaic of what we would like 2011 to be for us.
There is only one thing on my mind these days, and that is the impending arrival of my little one.
All I want for 2011 is the safe arrival of my little baby boy, and a whole year of the memories he will bring. I have 6 teeny tiny weeks left until my due date, and I'm ready now more than ever for our lives to change forever in a way that can't even be put into words.
This time the work is more of a 're-do' rather than a completely new design.
Originally all of my floral prints were offered in an 8"x10" size, and over time I decided I would rather have them be 6"x6" like the rest of the prints in my shop. All of the floral prints had been switched in size except for this print.
I have finally resized it and added a second color option, the blue, which I adore!
