work in progress

cells, originally uploaded by tanisalexis.

the title to this post could be a song for the soundtrack of my life. it’s where I’m at most days, but particularily in the field of creativity.
I’ve said it all too many times so I won’t continue with it, but time eludes me. I am gaining quite a bit more balance with life now that my wee one is 9 months old. there is finally a chance to understand that crazy word: ‘routine’ that all those baby advisors tell you about from day 1. and trust me, it wasn’t easy. both the wee one and myself had to figure lots of things out before we fell into the lap of ‘routine’. I can understand now why people talk about it so much when parenthood arrives..it’s so much easier to maintain a little bit of sanity when ‘routine’ is kicking around!!

so I’ve had some wonderful people approach me about some custom orders in the last few months. these are understanding, loving and appreciative people who know what I do, love what I do, and respect these moments of crazy that a new mom occasionally has. it’s a beautiful thing.
above is a photo of a current ongoing project on my hands. I call them cells. more like, big, fuzzy, wooly stitched circles on circles. a perfect pile of creative projects that I can pick up when time allows.. stitching an edge, adding a little flair, or tacking on more cirles…the person who has requested them had left colours up to me which is a nice bonus. They would like about a dozen, so I’ve cut out more than I need and maybe if I have some leftover from the order, I can post them into my shop later on. (which is a whole other story about time management! hey, this is progress, friends!! hahaha!)

more soon! xo

Happy New Year friends!!!
I am finally getting back to some normal paced activities after a long exhausting holiday and autumn.
Our little baby bean was born September 26th and we spent the next couple of months in a delirilous newborn/new parent state. surreal is not a big enough word to describe it. we’re sleepily and madly in love with our new baby girl.

so now that the holidays are behind us, & a fresh new slate ahead, I am trying to jump back up on the horse and get a much as I can get done during nap-times.
This includes finishing off a heap of half-finished projects I found recently (including above photo) and to get listing some new creative objects into my etsy shop.

I hope this new year of 2010 is filled to the brim with heart felt wishes come true for all of us.
Lots of love
xoxo

my reason for not blogging as much as I should…

no need for words.

I am at about 13 weeks.

Awe, disbelief, exhausted, overwhelmed, excited, overjoyed, intrigued, curious, and exhausted best describes how I feel these days.

ย 

I promise once that energy comes back there will be more posts &ย more entertaining news. But until then… XO!
