One of the weirdest things with pregnancy, for me, has been the way my brain seems to melt days into other days.
Everyone always says the last month or two are the longest, and I swear they just keep going faster and faster. On Saturday, I'll be 34 weeks, and I honestly don't know how time has gone this fast. Plus, I feel really awesome. In fact, I feel 10 million times better than I ever did at the beginning. Before I was dreading the thought of having x amount of months left, I was dreading the thought of gaining more weight, and I was horrified at the thought of swelling up like a puffer fish. But really, things have gotten a lot better. My weight gain, which has probably been one of the hardest parts of this whole adventure for me, has completely levelled out over the last few months. I haven't had any sort of swelling yet, but I've got a feeling if this was summer time, things might be a little different! Today was one of those "hide under the covers all day" days.

The little brunette mermaid. In Spaces Between. Blogs to Bookmark 23 July, 2013 Hola!
Blogs to Bookmark is back, if only for a short time in this format. I’m currently in the process of jazzing up this here blog – an ”interim-but-awesome jazz’ before the full overhaul – and as a result I’ll be making a couple of small changes to the structure of the content. All in the name of making it better, of course. I’m not 100% sure on the evolution of Blogs to Bookmark but I am thinking that I’ll roll it in with Making Me Happy and turn all of it into a brand new, improved post.

Elise Blaha. L had the pleasure of spending four days on the Oregon Coast this past week, wearing my collection of humongous scarves and teaching at the Your Story Retreat.
I said this to the women attending at the very beginning and I say it again here: my job, while awesome, can be very isolating. It's just me and my computer and sometimes it feels like with all the online connection available, it's difficult to connect in real life. I do not seek out opportunities to make friends often or give myself time to really dig deeper below the surface.
And in some ways, that (digging deeper) is what this retreat was about. There were 21 of us, for the most part packed into one big house. My teaching day was Friday and I taught rubber stamp carving in the morning and then we used our stamps to create patterned paper. This is my sweet spot in many ways. The other thing that I love is watching peoples' personalities come out through what they decide to carve. Including how to crochet! Chic Style + Affordable Luxuries. It's Me, KP: Stencil Hop. Welcome to the Stencil Hop!
I'm excited to share my favorite stencils from my dear friend Julie's new line with The Crafter's Workshop. I love the line of stencils that she's designed but I'm hands down in love with these two... They come in both 12x12 and 6x6 and are available right now at Simon Says Stamp! Here's what I did with the stencils... I really like the 6x6 size because they work for 12x12 or 8.5x11 layouts - super versatile. I combined the mini If You Believe with another cool Crafter's Workshop stencil, Squircle. I used the If You Believe stencil again in my Happy Things mini album along with Mister Huey's Calico White - look how nicely it pops!
Julie has created lots of awesome designs (I need to play with Frag Flower and Clouds!) InLinkz.comBe sure to check out these two stencils and all the other great designs over at Simon Says Stamp.
