Blessings for 2010!!!

I realize that I have been less than faithful in logging my ideas and thoughts in this blog...and I really wish that I had more inspiration...but for the moment I am seriously lacking in that area. I am going to blame it on the fact that I am all crafted-out from making Christmas gifts...that and the fact that I am feeling a little more than overwhelmed with the mountain of mess that is currently in my home. The day after we got home from our Christmas vacation was spent at the doctor's office taking care of some pre-op stuff I had to do for a minor surgery procedure that I had this past Tuesday to help me keep my baby to worries though, I am doing well and just have to take it easy for the next week. You'd think that all of this down time would give me plenty of time to upload some new and exciting ideas, but I am all out of energy and ideas on so many levels. So, I'm "resting" as best as I can and will hopefully be "inspired" to share some more fun crafty/design ideas soon.

Thanks to those of you who still check up on me...that means so much! I got an e-mail from a blogger friend who told me that I've been in her thoughts and prayers lately, and she just wanted to make sure that I was okay---wow, is that wonderful or what?!! I am blessed in so many ways, and even when I feel like I'm in a designing valley I still feel like I matter---thanks, Beth!

Here's to a wonderful and blessed 2010! I know it will be an interesting year for our own family as our *second* child makes his/her way into the world. What a wonderful day that will be!

Blessings to you all,

Hello again!

Whew, after a long absence I still don't have much to bring to the table here. Though don't get me wrong, I have been doing plenty here at home. I have tried to make as many gifts this year as I can, but I can't post any of my beautiful creations here since some of my family reads my blog...and I sure don't want to spoil any of my surprises!

I have done a little decorating for Christmas, but just didn't have the energy for the full-out decking of all the halls, boughs of holly and all that jazz. I am happy with what I did, and I might post a few pics so that I can remember what this Christmas looked like, but it's nothing too fancy. Simple, festive, yes, but nothing over the top...nothing like so many of my beautiful bloggy friends' homes! There are some real show stoppers out there in blog land!

I do have a totally non-decorating related question to ask those of you who have been pregnant before...did any of you lose hair during your pregnancy? Mine is falling out like crazy...sort of the way it did after I gave birth to my son...and I don't know what to do. I seriously feel like I'm going to go bald! And I don't want that! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'll be back soon, I'm sure, although right now I am really trying to focus on my sweet little toddler, getting in lots of playtime and recording our daily happenings on my blog that I have for him. In the meantime though you can bet that I'll be visiting all of your blogs...which I still look at almost daily, even if I don't comment!

Please Be Patient!

Not that any of y'all are just dying to read my next post or anything, but I thought I'd just pop in for a bit and let you know to please be patient...I'll be back to "regular" posting soon. Between having a couple of groups of family come to stay before and during Thanksgiving, the craziness of preparing for my Thanksgiving hosting debut and the extreme tiredness that I've been feeling from the pregnancy, I just haven't had the energy to blog...and that's not normal for me! ;) I'll be back soon though, I have some lovely pictures of our Thanksgiving to post as well as some updated pics of my Christmas decor! See you soon!
