Coming February 2012: A Crafty Caterpillar AKA Our First Baby!!

August 10, 2011

Yes, you read right, we’re expecting our first baby in early February and couldn’t be more thrilled.  This in part explains my long time blogging absence (trust me, they don’t lie about how exhausting the first trimester IS!!).  Though we’ve known since day one, we waited to make our big announcement to the world (AKA Facebook) until we received this gem of a photo at our last visit.

That right there is our little peanut, who has finally graduated from looking like an alien to looking like an actual mini-baby!  Sigh.  Isn’t he or she just precious?! This was the appointment that made it all real, we could see the baby jerking around and moving its tiny human arms and it was incredible!

So, be forewarned there may will be future posts on pregnancy, prepping for baby, and exclamations of our excitement.  In the meantime, wedding season is finally nearing its end and I’m doing my best to catch up on delayed orders (thank you to all of those who have been patient and understanding).  I’m also working on getting a “real brides” section up and running soon so I can share all the gorgeous photo submissions from all of my lovely brides.

On a related note The Artsy Butterfly shop will be temporarily closing at the end of this year and at the moment I am not taking on any new orders due out after December 2011.  Currently there is a longer than usual lead time of 16-18 weeks which means I can only continue to receive requests until the end of this month.  I wish I could do more, but right now my biggest concern is staying happy, healthy and stress-free.
