I think that I officially popped out the other day and am now showing. I was doing the grocery shopping and my stomach muscles were really hurting. It was like a pulsating pain that kept getting stronger. When I finished up at the grocery I had to run to Michael's to pick up some cardstock and while I was in there it was really hurting. I kept thinking that I didn't know why it was hurting so much. I haven't even gone to the gym this week. Then all the sudden it was like my muscles just gave way and out popped a little stomach. And then there was no more pain. I think my body was having a little tug-a-war. My muscles didn't want to expand but the baby was demanding more room. The baby won. So I officially made it to 15 1/2 weeks before I got a pooch.
Here are some pictures of another chipboard album that I finished yesterday. It's definitely a glitter lover's dream. I've got two more that just need their finishing touches today and tons of tins to start sealing this morning. And the list goes on.....

The second one was the second bound album that I've made myself. I purchased my bind-it-all months ago and have just gotten around to using it. The album is about 5.5"x7.5" and holds 7 photos. I had a hard time figuring out the embellishments for the album though because there just aren't a lot of great embellishments for boy albums other than for like baby boy albums. But all in all I am happy with the album. There are two pages that I feel like don't have enough embellishments but I'll have to sit on it for a day or two and revisit it.

This next album was done with paper that I just love and have about used to death. I had in mind a little girls album so I used lots of crystals on the inside. I was very pleased with how the crystals on the flower pull-outs turned out. I think they look really cool. On the front I just put Little Lady on the tab and three rhinestones on the cover because I thought the paper was so pretty that I didn't want to cover it up.
And here is the one that I can't decide what it's theme should be. It's obviously for someone who really isn't into the whole really pink and girly stuff. I can see someone using it to put pictures of their sister and them in or of them and their mom perhaps. But what should the cover read? I don't know. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Then we found out that I was pregnant so that was exciting. I've been really blessed so far in that I really didn't have much morning sickness. I did have a couple of weeks where I was just drained and pretty much slept the entire day but other than that it has been smooth sailing. I've completed 13 weeks and we should be finding out the sex of the baby in another 4 weeks. Well, that's if the baby decides to cooperate. We went last week to hear the heartbeat and that baby was cruising in there. The midwife was having a hard time keeping the thing where we could hear the heartbeat. The baby was going to left, to the right, then up, now down. It's a swimmer.
My parent's came to visit this weekend and we ran around so much. I'm so pooped so I'm glad they left today. We went to DC on Sunday and did a bunch of the museums and let me just tell you that I could barely walk yesterday. I'm still sore today!
Now I'm on to getting ready for my next craft show on the 20th and 21st. I'm not nearly ready but I'm working very quickly and realizing that I can only do what I can do. It must be the wisdom that comes with having a baby :)
