According to the doctors my due date is tomorrow, October 20th.
My husband and I are so very anxious and excited for our first child's arrival. Our daughter has certainly spoiled me to this whole pregnancy thing. She never gave me a day of morning sickness, she's not caused me too much pain or worry. God has blessed us with a wonderful time, and we know it's only going to get better.
I recently had a fun adventure into working with adhesive vinyl. I designed a butterfly with Eva's name in a cursive font and set it up with the CraftROBO to be cut out.
The hardest part was piecing it back together on the door! Not to mention I found out that if the vinyl lines weren't cut through all the way and are thing that they break pretty easily. I found it fun and am working on some more ideas for inside the nursery. It's going to be a great alternative to these white walls! And I'm certain our landlord will be happy that we resisted painting.
As for my usual craft of choice, the pillow boxes - I've been attempting to motivate myself to work more on them but the motivation has slacked. I'm sure once I'm off of work and taking care of Eva 24/7 I'll find myself needing something to do (other then catch up on sleep time) The items I'm selling will be my only income for 3 weeks since I'm a contract Graphic Designer with the local Newspaper (no benefits) so if you wouldn't mind trying to help increase my sales by passing along my info I'd really appreciate it. http://StormGazerDesigns.etsy.com
As of right now I'm running a special FREE SHIPPING until I go into the hospital to deliver my daughter. Now is a good time to stock up on the pillow boxes!
Anyways, I figured this blog needed a bit of an update - I'm off to go find something on TV to watch while I wait for my husband to return from work.
I love to work with graphic design on the computer but also enjoy amateur Photography and basic arts & crafts. I earned my BFA in Graphic Design from ACU where many very talented teachers taught and fine tuned my skills into what they are today. I started out just enjoying to sketch and draw but ACU turned me on to the joy of creating with digital. I mainly use the Adobe Creative Suite programs my parents were so nice to purchase for me. In the past I've been known to dabble with animated gifs using other programs as well but have since slacked with that and am quite rusty. I've enjoyed finding work to do with my church congregation, family, friends and locals for all varieties of projects and designs. I started off hired as a contract graphic designer for a local news paper working on the advertisements and have since been hired on full time to be the PrePress Supervisor for the Advertising Department. I'm a full time wife and mom as well, love doing projects for them in our home. My little daughter has started enjoying coloring and drawing so it's fun to think up ways to pass on the fun!
