Honey, We Need to Talk…

30 Oct

I’ve been distant.  I’ve been quiet.  You’re starting to wonder what’s going on with me, but when you ask I say, “Everything’s fine, don’t worry about it.”  You’re worried.  You wonder what happened to the several-posts-a-week me, and you’re starting to think you’ll never get the “old me” back again.  You’re starting to think I’ve been hiding something from you.


… I HAVE been hiding something from you – something that’s been making me sick.  Something that’s been making me spend most of my days in bed or zonked out on the couch.  Something that’s been making me crave cashew nuts and ginger ale for breakfast…


It’s a baby!

Not this baby. This is an internet baby.



After two miscarriages, two years, several expensive (and totally embarrassing) appointments with an awesome fertility specialist, some drugs, some herbal supplements, and some serious thought about adoption, Husband and I are happy to be welcoming our first child on or around April 26th of next year.  ❤

So, I’ve been spending most of my time lately, well, gestating. Today the little tidbit in my belly is the size of a navel orange (about 4.5 inches), and come the beginning of December Husband and I will find out which team we’ll be on (Edward or Jacob…errr… I mean… pink or blue…).  We’re thrilled (and terrified, and totally overwhelmed, and, you know, I’ve been weeping a lot)!

In the meanwhile, things over at my Happy Little Shop have been kicking into high gear – I’ve been working on orders pretty constantly for the last few months, which means I haven’t been making many *new* things, but rather filling orders for Snoopy, Nicholas the Bunny, and Charlie Brown, among others.  I’m in the middle of remodeling over there – check out my newly designed banner & avatars when you stop by – and I’m closing down for the last month of the year to reorganize things & get my 2012 product line up and running.

And, because of some fortuitously timed changes at work-work, I’ll be cutting back to half-time at the end of November, which will, theoretically, give me more time to commit my hookery (and gestate)!  Hooray!

So.  No, I don’t want to break up with you – I LOVE you!  But I am going to need a bit more space (unless you really want to hover over me while I revisit breakfast).  =)


Also not my baby, but So. Freakin'. Cute.








A Custom Order

12 May

Ch-ch-ch-check out these adorable infant headbands I recently made up for a custom Etsy order:

The cuteness! It hurts my eyes!

They’re made with a merino wool/acrylic blended yarn, which is both ultra soft (yay!) AND machine washable (double yay!)

The definition of cute.

Since the yarn is just the *perfect* amount of stretchy, newborn miss adora-baby girl won’t have to worry about those pesky elastic lines scrunching her perfect little forehead!

Too cute - A little too cute!

I’m CERTAIN you yourself know of an adora-baby girl who absolutely NEEDS a set of these, don’t you?  Shoot me an e-mail or convo me on Etsy and I’ll totally make some for you!


In the meanwhile, please expect my posts to be a tad bit more… scarce than you’re used to.  I’ve got a major project in the works that I’d typically give myself, say, three months to complete.  Due to my epic procrastination, however, I have only a little over a month to get it finished.  *sigh*  Someone really ought to keep a closer eye on me.  Chins up, though, friends – I recently discovered Tiger Balm (thanks, Suzanne!), and with that little miracle plus my ritual epsom salt soaks, I should really be able to finish up this project with all 10 fingers still attached!

Oh, and one more thing…  HERE COMES A CUTE BOMB!


Happy Happy Warm Fuzzies to all!
