It's been slow around here. Like really slow. Like to the point that i'm embarrassed to admit how unmotivated I am. πŸ˜‚ Nothing could have prepared me for how tired I would be growing a tiny human! At 11 weeks my motivation & creativity are at an all-time low, but I have every hope that I'll bounce back SOON! πŸ˜„ God is so good to me in this season, giving me a casual schedule & plenty of time to rest. But I so miss having a hoppin' IG feed! I'll be back in the swing of it very soon! πŸ’›

September was so super exciting for us! With our first real baby appointments & sharing the news with our friends, i'm pretty sure most other occurrences were overshadowed. πŸ˜‚ But I feel like every month the rest of the year is going to have so many amazing firsts to make up for it!

We took Mimi to her first pumpkin patch today! She had to stop & point at every pumpkin she saw in the field & was trying to pick them up despite the fact that they were bigger than she was. πŸ˜‚ We may have grabbed a few at the patch, but she's still my favorite little pumpkin. πŸ˜‰

Thank you so so SO much for the outpouring of love on the news of our growing family! This community has been such a source of support for us & I don't know what we would do without you! It's been weeks of endless hormone monitoring, blood tests, internal scans, extra medications, worry, & strange aches & pains. But we are in awe that it's finally happening. You all make my heart want to burst with love! πŸ’›

We're expecting! This is possibly the biggest news of our lives & is over 7 years in the making. It has been incredibly hard to keep the joy all to ourselves because so many of you have prayed for us for so long. We never dreamed our fertility treatments would work on the first round! Over the moon is a vast understatement to how we're feeling about this little jellybean! God is so so faithful & His promises are true! πŸ’›

Today i'm on the @illustratedfaith blog with one of my favorite pages i've done in awhile! I had a lot of fun with the background. I stamped the oval from the Gratitude Documented stamp set in different colors & filled in with some purple paint swipes! So easy & fun! Also, mixing alphas is my favorite!
.
But the blog post today might be one you need to read. It's about feeling left out. But I have good news for you: the Lord will never leave you on the outside! 1 Samuel 12 has some good stuff on the subject. Check out my blog post for some encouragement!

I needed a shot of inspiration today, so I decided to make my own mood board by pulling out favorite papers. Then I narrowed them down to a tight palette & really love the result! I feel like i've been favoring warm colors lately, so it's fun that there are a lot of cool colors here to challenge me! Some of these papers are new, some are really old, but they're all 😍!

As Mimi grows, she's getting more & more interested in using her hands & making art! Any time she sees a pen or marker she's trying to draw with it. (Whether she has paper or not... But that's her parents' problem. πŸ˜‚) But the time I spend with her on my lap creating with me is so incredibly special! I want her to grow up knowing she has the heart of a little artist. β€πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

I've been lacking inspiration just a smidge lately because my brain & heart have been overloaded with the treatments. But I wanted to share a quick exercise I came up with to jumpstart your creativity. I taught this exercise at a recent workshop & it went over like gangbusters!
.
I take ONLY 5 minutes to raid my creative space & grab 10 snippets/pieces/items that inspire me & attach them to a jumbo shipping tag. It can be anything-- a sticker, paint color, snippet of paper, ribbon, stamp image-- whatever makes my heart happy. I chose to sew my items down, but you can glue them too. It just gives you a great little masterpiece to really define what's inspiring your heart at the moment!
.
The key is no more than 5-10 minutes! Don't think- just paste! It's not about thinking, it's about creative instinct. I find this exercise so fulfilling & fun! You should totally try it! Consider it a challenge from me to you! If you do, please tag me! I'd love to see your results!

Today I took time to document some days in our fertility journal using my new set Better Than Bandages in the @illustratedfaith #printprayshop . It gave me #allthefeels to use this set in this journal especially since this journey inspired it to begin with. 😊 It's so versatile & based on something we all pray for each day: health & wellness. These pages in this journal are about the days leading up my first ovulation trigger injection. πŸ’›
