maternity leave...

my mom, aunt, me @ 8.5 months pregnant (ignore the boobs, please) and Mamama- the inspiration behind Oatmeal Lace. :)
so it's almost time for our little man to show up which means I have to seriously face the fact that I am going to be taking time off from making bags.  I've been organizing like mad on the back end and laying down the groundwork to keep my shop going while I take 4 weeks off from constructing anything. did you hear me- anything!!!  just saying that gives me so much anxiety.  I cannot remember a day since I've started the business where I haven't done something related to oatmeal lace.  it's been my baby and seeing how far it's come this past year is just mindblowing to me.  I'm so thankful for all the wonderful people I've worked with and the support of my family and friends.  I can't wait to see what the future is going to bring, both personally and professionally.  baby p is certain to inspire me to branch out in new directions and hopefully (crossing fingers and toes here) will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the sewing machine so I can create all sorts of fun new items to share with you. :) I'll try to do a post or two after his arrival so you can see his cute little face and finally share his finished nursery. hope you all have a fabulous weekend and again, thanks for following along with me.

**sidenote: my mom totally called it on the dress being a little 'revealing' in the front. I didn't think it was an issue until I had to lean over to grab something...several times...whoops. mom's are always right, right? :) love you mama!!!
