Congratulations

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Good morning!

I wanted to thank everyone who gave me links and suggestions as to where you all buy your paper online. I found some new places I hadn't discovered before and ones I'll probably frequent a lot now. I still can't quite bring myself to buy paper online yet though. Paper pad collections, like those from Basic Grey and MME are a no-brainer, but buying individual sheets just terrifies me! Maybe I need to start slow and just buy a few sheets first....hmmm, yeah, that's what I'll do. :) Baby steps.

I got some AWESOME happy mail last Friday....some new Claudia & Co stamps!! :D But unfortunately I can't show them to you just yet. :( You'll see them in a couple of weeks, but in the mean time, here's another look at sweet Daisy Puddle Jumper!


I think this is the second time I've colored her bellbottoms in red! It's weird how it worked out that way. Anyhow, I colored her up with my reinkers and aquapainter brush, then cut her out and popped her on dimensionals. The layout is borrowed from this week's Friday Sketchers #93 sketch and I used scraps from my paper stash. There's a combination of paper from SEI and Scenic Route, which, I think, work really well together! They're both bold and colorful - just like little Miss Daisy. :)

Guess what else we got in the mail on the weekend? A letter from the Keene District School Board notifying us that we will have to register our little girl for Kindergarten! Eeek! Syd beamed ear to ear when I told her what the letter was about. She's soooo excited to be a big kid! I'm ready too, but this just means the pressure is on to have another child soon. When is it appropriate to fall pregnant soon after starting a new job? My gut says one year, but Syd will be 6 and I don't want the age gap to be that great! Any thoughts??

Toodles!

Ahhh kindergarten...I loved kindergarten...Ronald Reagan was president, we watched caterpillars turn into butterflies in our classroom and I wore my hair in a side ponytail that year. She's gonna have a blast...and you'll love capturing every moment. xoxo

I went through that feeling in the fall. I hated sending my "baby" off. My answer would be as soon as you want to, go for it. It will be about a year anyway before you need to take time off.

Super cute card Sandra!!
Each employer has their own policy about when you are eligible for family medical leave. You should check with the Human Resources Dept. You don't want to get pregnant before that timeframe if you want your job secure to come back to.
