Hello everyone!

I'm sorry about being away so long. We have a lot going on the last few months of the year.

And there is another reason I haven't been around lately. I have been too tired to do much of anything! I haven't been scrapbooking, art journaling or anything. And the reason for that is...

I'm pregnant!

That's right. Baby #4 on the way! We are so excited. I am 12 weeks today. We've known for a long time (about 2 months!) but wanted to keep it a secret until I was further along.

I was apprehensive about getting pregnant again for many reasons but we knew it was what God wanted for us. And we couldn't be happier.

Here are some things we've been doing lately and some other updates:

Sam at the Zoo.

Addison at Christmas. I just loved her little ponytail!

Jack and his guitar. He has the rocker face and stance down perfectly.

My cute girl with her brother's boots on.

Some of the artsy Christmas gifts: Neocolor watercolor crayons (Love these!), Black Lava texture gel, Gloss Super Heavy gel, Colored India Inks, and pen nibs.

Urban Decay Naked palette: the coveted sold out everywhere palette! I found it by chance at Ulta so I grabbed it! I was so excited. For those of you who don't get excited about makeup, ignore this photo! :)

Some books. I love books!!!

Stampotique stamps. I absolutely adore these! They are so my style! I wanted the circle in the middle because it reminded me of my 3 kids.

So, right now my Etsy shop is closed. I am still trying to work on some new inventory but since I don't feel very energetic right now, it's hard to get motivated. I really miss doing it though, so I have to start back up at some point. I'll keep you updated. In the meantime, I have a few newsprint paper bags left, some little envelopes, and a few bottles of Glimmer Mist so if you want some just send me a message and we can work something out.

I signed up for an online class called Remains of the Day. It's taught by the cute and quirky Mary Ann Moss. I LOVE it! I cannot wait to make some journals. My husband also got me a Brother XL2600 sewing machine so I could make them. I have to get together with my grandma so she can show how to use it. I have no idea and the manual doesn't help. I am sewing machine illiterate. And it makes me really nervous!

Anyway-I don't know how often I'll be posting on here. Blogging in low on the priority list I'm sorry to say. So is my YouTube channel. I have 2 videos that will go up someday! One is part 3 of my travel journal kit. And the other is about downsizing my art studio. Hopefully they will be up sooner rather than later, but you never know!

Have a great rest of the weekend and I will see you soon!
