Oh Wow....

I am SO sorry for the lack of updates. My life has been incredibly crazy (in a good way).

I kept telling myself for months and months - "If you aren't going to blog about doll stuff - don't blog. Nobody cares what's going on."

But I feel like I owe everyone an explanation and an update:

- First off, I absolutely HAVE NOT quit the doll hobby. I have been on a long hiatus from doll stuff due to real life interference but it hasn't stopped me from accruing (ever more) dolls and doll items. I just haven't been extremely productive in my own projects due to lack and time and energy as explained below...

- I am currently 3 days from my due date with Baby #2 who was announced in my last(ish) post. I am really happy to say we are having another girl! Here is our little Verity Rose (about 20 weeks ago, but better late then never!)

She has remained happy and healthy this whole pregnancy and while we've been through a lot (to be explained in the next bullet) she's found time and energy to be even more ornery in-utero then her big sister was!


Ivy is very happy and excited. I am tired of being pregnant and you can tell - my mother-in-law arrives on Thursday so we are hoping Verity decides to stay inside until then!

- Do you guys notice anything different? Besides me being huge and my ever changing hair color?

WE MOVED - TO AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT STATE.

The Hubby got a wonderful new job in Michigan, so now Liz and I are practically neighbors (well she lives down the street from me and her dad is my neighbor two doors down!) and Heather lives somewhere around here too! It was a long process and a big, big move for us (especially since it took place while I was 7 months pregnant). All the time I spent packing boxes meticulously really helped things along, because it took one U-Haul trip and now we are in a really sweet new townhouse here in Lansing. There is still tons of work to be done and lots of furniture to buy. But we are really happy and we are more then aware how absolutely fortunate we are to have such a big positive change when the tendency is for others to have big negative changes going on right now.

Unfortunately, the dioramas I had built for the kitchen and the bath didn't make it - which means I just have to make others with the furniture I have ;)


The doll unpacking has taken a huge backseat to unpacking for Verity's impending arrival (I have no freaking clue where my camera even is right now). And all doll projects have been put on hold until we acquire the new furniture we need to store everything (all our books, dolls, crafts, game systems are still boxed up!)

I hope this post suffices to let you all know I'm not gone forever. Just dealing with some big (super positive!) changes in real life. I really hope to have a doll related update for you guys sooner rather then later...

Congrats to you on the new baby coming and your new home!! The doll stuff can wait for now while you plan for the new baby!!! I can't wait to see what you come up with once the baby is born and you can get back to doll and dioramas. :)
