Baby Sabbatical

Not long ago, I found the cutest fabric in Hobby Lobby: fabric

After my mom and I spent some time hashing out ideas, she created this cute maternity top for me:

And it fits The Bump and I perfectly!

Tomorrow, I will be 33 weeks pregnant. If my mom's prediction of Baby's arrival time (read: early!) turns out to be correct, that leaves me only about 5 weeks before I'm officially on Mama duty.

And there's still plenty to do, like finish setting up Baby's space:

Get all of Baby's clothes and diapers washed and ready to go:

Bake a bunch of lasagnas and quiches and other dinners that can be made ahead and frozen:

(Just because I'll take a break from baking for clients doesn't mean I get off the hook completely!) :)

All that to say, I am taking some time off from creating. A Baby Sabbatical, if you will. In fact, "sabbatical" is defined as "a rest from work, or a hiatus, often lasting from two months to a year."

I can't predict whether my break will be closer to the two month end or the one year end of that spectrum. That will depend mostly on Baby's temperament and my energy level. (I sure hope it's not a YEAR!)

But I can tell you this for sure: I finished my last cake order this morning and I'm only taking orders for custom books through TUESDAY, MAY 25th.

So...if you are planning to want a journal, photo book, or sketchbook made for an upcoming birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion, please order NOW. I want to be able to guarantee I can get it done for you before Birth Day!

In the meantime, I will continue posting about the projects I have completed...until the queue runs dry! :)

Thank you so much for your understanding and for your patronage over the past few years. Your loving support and sweet comments mean a lot to me!
