Still no babies

Just a small sample of what I have been up to in the last few months.  It was ridiculous, seriously.  Literally twice as much work as I'm accustomed to in the the months of September and October.







Hello, dearest readers.  I apologize for my long absence.  First I was slammed and working frantically to get everything finished before my twins arrived.  (Which is slightly irritating, since as I write these words I am still (extremely reluctantly) pregnant.  I probably could have worked straight through November without any issues at all!  Argh.  But who could know?  I was really in dread of having work unfinished and going into labor.)  And then for the last few weeks I've been trying to get the house (and my mind) prepared for two new people.  The babies' room is starting to look really cute!







I've been meaning to do a post about my fabulous little studio, but I think it will have to wait until I have it in me to do another video tour.  I'm really happy working from home, but it is super important that the space isn't inside my house.  I worked out of my house once before and it was really easy to get consumed by the job.  Being able to lock the door and walk away has been fantastic.




One thing I haven't figured out yet is a new space for photographing.  It's been a bit of a struggle since I don't have a really great sunny window to work in.  I only like to photograph in natural light, but it has to be diffused as well.  The photo below is one of the few examples that actually work in the direct light.  But in general it's really hard to get a good photo in direct light (for me, anyway).




Well, I think this will be my last post for a month or two.  Depending on how things are after the babies arrive, I would like to work a bit on some new designs before I reopen.  But I will just have to see what life is like in the next couple of months.

All right!  Wish me luck!  I think I will probably need it. :-)
