How did it get to be April already? This year has flown by and has been full of so much change and upheaval in our lives that I have barely had a chance to look at the calendar.
January brought the birth of our second child, a baby girl named Samantha Grace. We’ve been so busy ever since that I just finished her birth announcement the other day. The announcement came out better than I expected and I will definitely share it here once I get them mailed out to family.
Sam has been such an easy and happy baby that it seems easy to lose track of her some days. Her older brother is so busy and demanding that it’s hard to remember to give her attention because she doesn’t demand it like he does.
In between taking care of those two, I’ve been getting a little design done here and there. I’ve also been working on a hybrid Project Life album that I hope to show more of soon. Besides that I have signed up for far to many Skillshare classes, so I finally decided to taken the plunge and sign up for their monthly membership option. For ten dollars a month, you get access to TONs of their classes. Lately I’ve been working on developing a brush set and redoing the TMD brand. Both have been lots of fun and I’m learning a lot. I really cannot recommend Skillshare highly enough. (Those are affiliate links, but I’m serious about loving this service. The instructors are top notch and the classes always have a practical application.)
We started looking for a house at the beginning of the month and the process went much faster than I expected. The first few houses we looked at were basically train wrecks or just were not going to work for our family, but the second time we went out we found an amazing house that needs a lot of work, but has tons of potential. On the plus side, I get to collect all sorts of remodel inspiration on Pinterest. We’ve been slowly chipping away at everything that goes into buying a house and are nearing our closing date at the beginning of April.
Of course that move is going to end up happening right with another big move for me that I can’t tell you about just yet, so If you don’t subscribe to the blog through bloglovin’ or my newsletter, now is the time to do so. I have some big announcements coming in the near future.
Has this Spring brought any big changes for you? I’d love to hear about what you’ve been up to in the comments.
