Oh dear. I appear to have run out of maternity leave posts. I wrote a bunch of them (though not nearly as many as I'd hoped) and scheduled them out, and they have run their course.
Baby Olive arrived four weeks earlier than expected, and that blew my carefully crafted schedule to smithereens. I am totally okay with that.

Smithereens, I tell you!
Things have naturally been a blur since then (January 13th), and I'm just now starting to put the pieces back together. Things have changed dramatically, and I don't want things to be the same as they were pre-Olive, anyway. Honestly, I'm not sure what this means for the blog. Yes, I just reformatted it. Yes, I spent tons of time and energy on that. And yes, now I am thinking of scrapping it all and starting over. Or stopping. Whatever.
Not that I have any intention (or indeed, ability) to stop creating stuff. I've been working on a new collaborative project over at The Year of Living Sketchily. The Etsy shop is back up now, too.
I need time to figure out how all these older pieces fit into my new, busier life. Traditionally, taking time has sent me into a panic. I need to be doing! Constantly! Or else! Olive, however, is forcing me to take a different approach. "You need to hold me! Constantly! Or else!" And I am happy to.
All this is really just a long winded way of saying that change is afoot. Silence in the meantime. Bear with me. See you soon.

Congratulations on baby Olive! I hope you find some way to still blog. I'd miss your presence, if you weren't there. Perhaps you can blog about clever/crafty/cute things that are Olive-centered? or Olive-inspired?
