addie's chalk, my boots, and a quiet place

Recently, I've received some concerned comments and emails, wondering where I've been and if everything is o.k. over here. I am happy to write that all is well, and I thank you so much for your care.

With this pregnancy I've been feeling very worn down and very introverted and just so... quiet. I've been looking ahead to having this baby coming, and being very reflective about it all. And so, I have been laying low, both in blogging and in real life as well.

I do wish to be back here more again, but please know in the meantime I am just off in a quiet place.

Love to all of you!

Many hugs to you. I was worried myself. There must be so much to ponder; what with everything going on with you. I am empathetic for sure. I hope you are finding some peace while in your quiet space and I'm so glad to hear you are well!

My first is due August 3rd. I'm so excited!

Happy Birthday to Addie, what a lovely gift for her. And yes, I can really relate to that need to go inwards during pregnancy, and so pleased to hear all is well.

Ok good, I was worried as well! Happy nesting and reflecting! And gorgeous birthday card! I hope I am half as creative as you when I am a mom.

Congratulations! I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much you inspire me. You could be gone a year and I would still be plodding through your 2009 posts! The thing that amazes me most is how you have incorporated your daughter in your creativity. I wish I had more patience with that. It will be interesting to see how the new arrival changes things for you and I will look forward to seeing future posts! BTW I have your blog as one of my links in my blog under "inspired creativity". I hope others will benefit as I have. Be blessed!

Every pregnancy is different, take it as you need..but mostly just enjoy it and be yourself! Love the birthday invites btw!

Just stopping by. It has been awhile since I've seen what you've been up to. I too have a little girl (3yrs) and time seems to fly by so much faster. My life between taking care of her and freelance is all I can manage...glad to have the flexibility...but at times hard to be my best at both. I have your journey-book in front of me with pages of writing from years past. And your rolodex is sitting here to the right of my computer...reminding me of the reason I got into design...for the love of paper. Thank you.
And know even when you don't have time for anything but yourself and family your work is always alive in others life. It's breathing lovely design. Cheers! And Happy Valentine's Day.
