As some of you may have noticed... I have not posted anything since June. Restless Risa has been in need of much rest! I am expecting, and in my second trimester, and some of my energy has finally returned. I also wanted to devote most of my time to the kids this summer, and not spend as much time working on the blog. So, I am now getting back to things, and have a bunch of different projects going at once.
Things are a little slower for me right now, because of my energy level, and the fact that I have sciatica when I am expecting. I am not complaining though. I happily accept what pregnancy brings as long as I get a healthy living baby at the end. Last August 2009, I delivered a sweet baby girl who was not living at the time of her birth. We named her Molly Claire. I still think about and miss her every day. This was and is a defining moment in my life. Being pregnant this time around has given me a new appreciation for the miracle growing inside of me. I have been very anxious with every Dr. visit, and really wanted to take it easy.
These are a few pics of our time with Molly:
The experience of delivering Molly and saying goodbye, was a big part of the reason I started my craft blog in the first place.I had empty hands and a broken heart. With no baby to hold, I knew I needed something to do to keep from going crazy and being consumed by sadness. I started doing project after project last fall. I figured I may as well share some of what I do with others, and started my crafty blog last spring. This blog was just what I needed, and really helped me through. Funny a blog can do that! Well, now I am hooked :) The future is looking great. I can't wait!
I have many projects in the works. Here is a list:
Odds and ends fix ups and re-purposing
Lots of Halloween fun! (Love Halloween!)
I haven't posted anything yet, as nothing is finished. Maybe I will just show my progress.
Anyway, I am excited to get back to my blog. I have missed it, and all of you!!!
Thanks for stopping in. I hope you have a happy and creative day!
