It's Not All Black and White

What's Been Keeping Me Busy?

This. I'm about 3-1/2 months along now, and feel a little bit safer sharing my news. Having been through a miscarriage before, I've been, let's just say, a little bit cautious: ie. paranaoid.

I had started a temporary job right before I found out I was pregnant. So with extra work, extra tiredness, and a LOT of nausea, I thought it best to set aside stamping and designing for a few months. So thanks to all of you who have hung in with my blog silence, and now that I'm feeling a lot better, I plan on chatting with you here more regularly again. And as far as the baby's health, so far, so good.
