Not Much Going On

Hi everyone! Just wanted to say I'm still here. I have been in kind of a slump lately. I haven't worked on much in terms of creative endeavors since Christmas. I've been busy reading baby books and trying to organize things before the baby arrives in March. We have to tackle the nursery next. I feel so overwhelmed by it all but I'm trying very hard to take it one day at a time and I remind myself that people do this everyday so I can handle it!

I think a lot of people go into creative burnout after the rush of the holidays.
Just take it a day at a time and maybe start a vision/decor board for the nursery of your dreams.

Hang in there sweet Mama. Just take it a day at a time. I know the fatigue and hormones can make it really difficult at times but YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT. Don't push yourself too hard and remember the baby won't know any better if the nursery is completely done or not!!
Happy New Year!

Karla! You'll be fine! One day at a time hour at a time when baby arrives! Enjoy this nesting part! Hugs, Heidi

Jeanie said...

There's much to be said with chilling out and reading baby books and prepping while you have the chance! Happy new year!

i was never ready for my babies...and like Heather said, they never knew the difference...they just want to be fed and cuddled...i can't believe it's almost time for your little bundle to arrive, it seems like you just told us you were expecting!!!

Hey chickadee!

Dont feel bad I have been in a slump too! I havent crafted in forever well since we moved in October. I need to get back into it! Just take it easy and it will all get done dont fret! big mermaid hugs

Have fun creating the nursery Karla - I'm sure it will all be fabulous and not long now until bubs is here to cuddle.

Monica said...

No crafting for me either I'm afraid!
We are painting the babies room next week ..yippy! Well I'm not but you know what I mean. We have so much stuff and no where to put it all . I havent wanted to bring it all up to his room because we would have to drag it all outta there to paint!
Hopefully after next week I can start putting clothes away and decorating :)
Have you purchased your bedding yet?
How have you been feeling?

Jenn said...

Time to fluff the nest ;-) Sounds perfectly normal to me! This is a great time to prepare and rest when you can!! Love the carbs...hehehe

I'm going to be starting up a new blog now...

Don't have to make something all the time, especially when preparing for a baby! We wuv u.

Hi Karla!
Say, you do not have to have everything perfect! Yours and the hubby's love is all the sweet babe really needs. Fluff is fluff.
Do what you can do.
Can you imagine how beautiful your baby is gooing to be!!! Yes, it may take some adjustments to a new schedule... you are informed and intelligent and brimming with love!

Big Hugs,

So very normal. I think all mamas feel this way. Just remember what needs to come together will. Make sure you take time to rest.

The Other Side of Me said...

Hi Karla,

I can't believe that this little bundle is due in March. That has gone so fast, at least for your adoring fans in blog land. I hope all is going well and PLEASE have fun putting that nursery together. That is the best part!
PS. When are you going to treat us to seeing that big belly of yours?

Hi Karla~ After the holidays is often a time to kind of slow down and pull in. Just relax and enjoy this time before the baby comes. FInd things that make you happy and do them and know that everything doesn't have to be done at once. Take care!
Also- thanks for the comment you left on my site- it is very much appreciated- feel free to visit again!


Grace said...

Rose Garden Romantic said...

Love the Anne Taintor picture- love all her stuff! Happy New Year! I am expecting a new little bundle of joy in late April, so I know how you feel. I have the bug to get my house in order and organized and all before the baby comes because as third time mama I know it won't happen after the baby! So exiting!

natalea said...

Karla, I'm just popping back over to say visit when you have a minute- I gave you and award!
love, nat

deb said...

Hang in there.. you're getting so close now! I hope you're feeling well.. get lots of rest. Once the baby comes that goes out the window! Ha! I didn't finish some things in the nursery until after my two arrived either. You'll get there.

I can't wait to see your scallop project (if you're up for it.)

Stay well!

The Whispering Poppies said...

You'll do just fine, Karla!!! Take all the rest you need... we didn't even have the nursery fully decorated and set up until AFTER our first baby was born! We had the crib fitted with bedding... some newborn clothes in one bureau drawer, and that's about it! (And... we didn't even have a name for the baby till AFTER he was born! And at 14 years old, that "baby" fits his name just perfectly. Everything as far as preparations go has a way of working itself out!) hugs!!!! said...

we are all looking forward to seeing nursery pictures (and baby picutres soon after that!!)

Cheryl said...

Hang in there, Sweets! I agree with what others have can be a slump for everyone, I think. I Love the carbs graphic....soooo cute!
