hello everybody,
I have some pretty exciting things to share this week, as well as some pretty lofty goals to set and accomplish this summer. Let's start with the announcements, and save the goals for later.

I landed a commission! I will be creating some pretty gigantic papercut murals that will be installed in a hotel in LAS VEGAS BABY. I have never been there, but I am thinking that once this gets installed, I will have to make the trip. I will be sharing my process along the way, and all I can hope for is that I don't melt down with anxiety and start over five times. We are talking 64 square feet of me and an Xacto blade (or 60 blades, or more). 

I feel odd announcing this so publicly, but it is pretty much the center of my universe right now so here goes: I'm pregnant! Knocked up! With child! Baby makes three! 

I don't want to turn this into a baby blog though, so I am considering starting a new site for that purpose. I don't know about that yet, but I will certainly keep you posted. If I do start a new site, it will NOT include letters to my fetus or anything too gooey. It will be about cool baby stuff.

This is our first child, and he or she will arrive in January. I'm feeling pretty good, aside from sleepiness, irritability, and lack of motivation in the studio. I am overcoming all of that though, and have been told that in a couple of more weeks I will experience a burst of energy and vitality that I have never seen before. Part of me wonders if that is due to the complete detox that comes with pregnancy, but whatever it is, I'll take it. Also, holy cow I can not get enough fruit. I don't have weird cravings, unless you call my loss of a former cookie obsession and a new found need for fruit 24/7 weird. I don't - I call that a miracle.

Hooray for babies!

We'll get to the "goals" portion of this braincloud later. I need to get this pregnant ass to the gym before Netflix and the couch suck me back in.
