{phfr} - Done!!!

Linking up with Auntie Leila, as always!

{pretty, happy, funny, and real}


I finished it! This was a large and beautiful order from the shop, placed by my godson's mother. It's been in the works for quite a while and I'm very pleased with how it turned out!!

One part of the above picture isn't part of the order, though. I also painted a child-friendly nativity set for a dear friend who's getting married this weekend! (No, she doesn't have any children yet, but I know that this is something they will love to have for when they DO have children!)


Keeping the post short today. The third trimester is really starting to catch up with me. On that note, I think this will probably be the last order I fill for the shop until after Baby Sister is born. I've hit the point where sitting or standing too long in any one position is difficult - and both standing and sitting for long periods are essential parts of toy making!! If you had something special in mind you can still e-mail me about it and I'd be glad to tackle it sometime this Fall/Autumn. And small orders of saint peg dolls (i.e. orders for 1 or 2 dolls) are still welcome. I'm just so glad I was able to finish this order before the third trimester really set in!

I'm in this weird place. Even though what I've been able to do has been somewhat limited this entire pregnancy by my hyperemesis, I still find myself totally taken by surprise by the third trimester! I remember these various aches and pains, the ways that my body becomes limited...but I hadn't really realized how much it would affect taking care of little Sister Stinky. Thank goodness having Mommy lay on the bed with a bare belly so she can "talk to" Baby Sister and "play" with her is a perfectly legitimate pastime in her book. My belly button has some serious outie action going on (even more so than last time) and the big sister seems convinced that it is her Baby Sister's nose poking through. She has told me this several times, and she loves nuzzling her nose against it. Too cute, these little girls of mine :-)

  1. Michele, the bride to be will love the nativity set! I hand-made her wedding card, and think she will love the thoughtfulness that went in to these gifts of ours. See you three in 36 hours!:)
