Working on "baby time"

Jack-Jack is a great baby who sleeps and eats well! She is fitting in with our family rather easily and I'm feeling confident about getting back to work. 

I am not accepting new orders quite yet but I will be starting to work on an order I received a year and a half ago that needed to be put on hold due to the client's request. Once it gets closer to done I will open up the calendar for new orders, later this summer.

Thank you all for your patience over the last 6 months. I have been cleared with a clean bill of health and I only have to check all those numbers that have been ruling my life sporadically as opposed to multiple times everyday!

I'm excited about getting back behind my sewing machine but will be taking it slow as my schedule is set on "baby time" for now!

Photo Costumes & Props

I made the costumes and props for Jack-Jack's newborn photos and they were really fun to make!

Do you use costumes or photo props at parties? If so, what kind do you use, and where do you find them?

The Baby Princess

The whole reason my life came to a screeching halt is just beautiful! "Jack-Jack" as she will be known on my blog was born March 18th, at 12:59pm. 8lbs 5oz and 21.25 inches.
She is just perfect and all my hard work to lay low and stay calm paid off. My blood pressure was great the entire pregnancy but I managed to develop gestational diabetes. My blood pressure spiked my third night in the hospital and once again the nurses were frantic trying to keep me from having a stoke. So the Dr's orders to lay low and be stress free are still in effect. I'm on medication and my blood pressure is great for now. At my 6 week check up we'll reevaluate and hopefully the medication will be taken away and I will be good to go.
We're working on finding what normal will be like from now on and I'm excited to get back to work as soon as it is possible and realistic.
I hope you all are staying beautiful and busy partying!!
