i owe you all an explanation (and an announcement.)

so... i've been the absentee designer. i haven't been posting on my blog. i've been intermittent at best with my twitter. if you follow me on twitter or are a friend of mine on facebook, you know i've been suffering with terrible migraines as of late (i am a chronic migraine sufferer anyway, but they've gotten to be unbearable on a daily basis for the past month). and yes, yes, i'm prepping for the stationery show, which also has me going crazy.

but it's not the whole story.

there is a REASON behind all the migraines, the tireds, the everything.

yep! oh, the miracle of life, making women miserable for at least 3 months, all throughout history. =D i am due with our second child at the beginning of november. we're all pretty excited (terrified) about it. anna jae is very into being a big sis now, and can't wait to go with me for my first sonogram next week to see the baby. she'll be almost 4 when he/she is born, so it's going to be a big change. but she's all about that responsibility right now. it's super sweet.

what you see above was the postcard-style announcement we sent out to family members. we did this with my first pregnancy too -- it's a nice way to tell people in a more personal manner that a new little person is coming, even if you can't see them all to break the news. the illustration is actually from my new card line (i didn't have time to make a new one for this occasion, and dave just loved the idea of him getting a big belly, which will never happen).

so, there's our little nugget of info. for all of my friends who have been worried about my migraines, there's nothing to be concerned about. it happened with the first pregnancy too. mother nature is just a bitch. ;-)
