Jack-in-the-box

One awesome  Round Robin that I find wasn't really fairly distributed. AlornJR started it with the box, I drew the jack in the box and Linda4atc did the rest.

I don't particularly like to work on these kind of sets where it's obvious that the starting player didn't put much effort into it. I mean it's great for my imagination and to stretch my creative abilities but it's not really fair to the other 2 players who have to do all the work to complete the cards.

I must say I held back for that reason and only did an outline thinking it will just stay in black and white. But Linda did an amazing job and went far and beyond to finish the set in such a fabulous way.

You know I'm a new mom so please don't hold it against me, if you get fed up of the baby pictures. :) Here is Tristan at 24 days old.

6 items ATC challenge & mustaches

ATCs I made for another fun swap. When players signed up for it, the hostess assigned 6 items to each player and we had to make 3 cards with at least 2 items on each card. My items were elephant, cookie, necklace, teapot, bunny and sword.
And this year our Pust or Shrovetide landed on the same day as Valentine's day. Pust is carnival time in this part of the world something similar to Halloween when kids go trick or tricking from door to door but I guess the most famous is the Venice Carnival.

It doesn't have a fixed date so it changes every year. And actually we celebrate 3 days. Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday. I had to google everything to translate accurately and I learned that Tuesday is called Mardi Gras which is French for Fat Tuesday. And Tuesday was my birthday. :) I don't know if I ever had Mardi Gras on my birthday. Oh, and we eat a lot of doughnuts at this time as it's somewhat of a traditional treat for this holiday.

Our boy was not ready to go trick or treating yet but I did put a mustache on him and took some pictures. :)

Tweety in Love and Tristan's birth story

This Round Robin is perfect for upcoming Valentine's Day. Linda4atc started it with the Tweety bird, Tandy added the Tweety girl and I finished it with the balloon and background.


Here's Tristan's birth story. I'll make it quick. :)

It happened on the due date Feb. 2nd, 2015. It escalated pretty quickly. My first contractions were already 5 minutes apart without warning. They were 2-3 minutes apart after an hour when I arrived in the hospital. I was all set for water birth until I was shaking from pain every other minute so I asked for epidural. It was heaven after that. :) It also slowed down the labor so it took me 7 hours to give birth after giving me some "nose spray" to speed things up at the end when the boy took his time to drop down. He was 53 cm (20,86") and 3750 g (8lb 3oz) at birth.

He's doing fine and he's such a good boy. I on the other hand have some issue with my left leg and my lower back. Looks like a pinched nerve that started 5 days before I gave birth and I hoped it was because of pregnancy but it looks like I'll be needing to visit orthopedist. It's limiting my movements and I had to be given some drugs and crutches in the hospital. Hubby is helping out a lot since he took time off work to be with us.

Otherwise, we're doing ok and still finding our own rhythm. :)

Captain Marvel: Carol Danvers with a bunny & Baby News

I made this card for one of my own swaps I organized. It was a lot of fun actually. I had players suggest subjects for each of two columns. One was for a man or a woman and the other an animal. The trick was that each player then chose "someone" from the first column and an animal from the second column that they had to portray as the person's pet. 

And here's the news we've all been waiting for. :) Our baby boy was born and we named him Tristan. I'll write a bit more when I get the time but this will have to do for now.

B&W Birdie

A little cute birdie black & white ATC that was made in the August a-thon not the Halloween one. :) Yes, I have cards to show you from months ago. You wouldn't believe how far ahead my posts are scheduled.

The worm on the above one is actually a thread I glued on. The second one below was done for a private trade but I didn't want to copy it so I turned him around a bit.
I caught a cold last week but luckily it wasn't all that bad, just stuffy nose and sore throat. I was fine the whole pregnancy but then hubby got sick and even though I made him sleep on the couch so I wouldn't catch his germs, I did catch them eventually. :) I guess stress helped with that as well.

So, my due date is on Monday. Nothing is happening yet but I'll let you all know when our baby boy arrives. :) I have scheduled a lot of posts to help me out while we get settled into a routine, so hopefully you'll still stop by to see what's up.

P.S. It's snowing again. At the moment 25 cm (10").
