A Collaboration.. the Hospital Bag and so much more..

Oh what a crazy past few days.. weeks I've been having. The days are flying by.. yes sometimes they seem to stand still.. I've got just about 2 more weeks to go till the baby comes.. but then again it could come today too.. all the unpredictability.. all the uncertainity really isn't my cup of tea. I am a planner. I make lists. And this is just the beginning of plans never going the way you expect ever again! Ahhh!

The bright light in all this is the nursery is almost complete.. I finished fabric stamping the curtains and I finished making the mobile. (Pictures to come soon.) We have yet to accessorise with cute toys and stuffed animals etc.. but I don't want to go on a crazy shopping spree just yet. I think I'd like to meet the baby first and there are presents to come.. so I will hold off on that for now. Though it is so hard.. and everything baby is just so cute!

Another yay! is that my little brother is flying in tomorrow.. I haven't seen him in 2 1/2 years.. and it'll be great to have him around.. I have been counting down the days since the start of June and finally I just have one more day of waiting left.. very excited.

Other than that life right now is all about the waiting, the cleaning and organizing.. hospital bag is ready to go.. though it is much emptier than I thought it would be.. we live 2 minutes away from the hospital.. literally a 10 minute walk.. so I see no point in packing everything just to bring it back home again. M can always run home and get me whatever I need. But if any of you mommies out there have any must packs let me know.. it might be the very thing I forgot..

I will not bore you with a pictureless post this time... infact I have some exciting news. I have collaborated with the fabulous BeansThings to make this gorgeous pendant using one of my photographs Spottted


Go check it out.. along with her other gorgeous necklaces. Click on the above 'BeansThings' link to be directed to the product page.

This is all from me for now.. will be back again next week. If i'm not I may be busy having a baby.. : )

Counting Down

Yes we have now gotten to the point where the countdowns have begun..
0 days to when my MIL's visa should have arrived.. which is not good news.
3 days to my parents getting back home from their vacation, not speaking to my mom for hours every other day is driving me crazy. I have started to write her detailed emails so she'll be all caught up when she gets back home.
12 days till my brother flies in to spend a month with me. Haven't seen him in two and a half years!
and I don't want to put an actual number to this countdown but lets just say there less than a month left till baby arrives.

And my list of things to do hasn't gotten any shorter and the rainy gloomy weather is just bringing me down.

My shop just earned it's 300th heart.. happy! And I have added many more photographs and art prints so it.. so if you haven't stopped my recently go take a look
Etsy shop there are a number of new things to look at.

I leave you today with an oddly imageless post, I think this is my first ever post not to include any images.. I promise next weeks will be much more photo filled. But for now have a great weekend everyone.. with hopefully more sun and less rain.

The Perfect Weekend

I had already hinted at some relazing weekend plans in my last post.. well here's what we did. We drove to upstate New York in the Finger Lakes area just outside of Rochester to a spa and resort. It was a weekend of lounging by and in the pool, getting a fantastic couples massage, sleeping in late and napping on whim and the great food. An especially elaborate Sunday brunch.. and just enjoying the great weather and sun.

I'm hoping all of you also had a great weekend..

and as if the weekend wasn't perfect already I also celebrated my one year Etsyversary ending the year with 15 sales. To me, that in no way is a bad number... I have managed to cover my start up costs and have started to make a profit. During this year I have sold images small, big and very big. I have had custom orders and have learned quite a lot during this year. So a big thanks to all of you out there who have visited my shop, who have liked my work and left kind comments, those who have bought my work, featured it on blogs and in treasuries. Thank you.

For the next year I would like to aim a bit higher but with motherhood around the corner I will keep more reasonable expectations and just hope to do as well as I did this year.. and anything more will just be an added bonus. And it think it'll be a good year, just one week into year two and already I have made two sales.. so I guess I just have 13 more to go and 356 days to get there.. I think I can do it..

As for the two sales the first, Irani Sky was to the wonderful June of YesterYearCreations


and the second Umbrellas was to Alice.


Right now I am a happy girl and I send a bit of happiness your way too.
