it's snowing again as i type this today, but this is ada the day before Thanksgiving in our new yard... yes! we MOVED and bought our first house late this Fall!
Hence the silence in this space! It's been a complete whirlwind, (total understatement) but all for the better... We couldn't be happier with our decision to move as it's brought us closer to family and given us a LOT more room- both inside and OUT. there's a BIG yard for the kids to roam, run, and ride bikes! there's more room inside for all of us too- I can't wait for the Spring when you'll find me on the big screened in porch off of the living room! we even have a playroom which is a big deal with little ones. It's truly a dream come true for our little family. We're still sort of pinching ourselves!
upside of now having a playroom- everything is corralled in one place, the downside- it never ever going to be tidy!
my new "clean slate" studio is almost ready... !
The girls did GREAT with the move, I think they definitely settled in faster than we did and are SO happy in their new PINK (!) room. Lucy decided to start crawling and pulling up the week we moved so all of the boxed served as perfect barricades! She's now *almost walking* and in what can only be called her "screeching" mode. *sigh* There's been a lot of NOT sleeping around here with teething in full effect, so that's been well, it's just been... I look forward to the night when I can sleep for more than 3 hours straight and wonder if it will ever happen again... ( I *know* it will... but still!, it's hard!!!)
I can't wait to share some more here soon, but I thought I'd pop in and say hello as it's been too long! happy winter and 2015!
I've been taking it all very SLOWLY and focusing on the girls, so no calendars this year (blame lucy and the move), but I have put up a little sale over in the etsy shop, so be sure to check it out as I have some new fun notebook sets! It's felt a bit strange to take this chunk of time away from my art and work, but it's been really special and wonderful to be able to fully focus on our new home and the kiddos! AND, since I'm completely sleep deprived these days, it's been a total blessing!
