From the beginning I've wanted this blog to be a happy place for visitors as well as myself. I've tried to keep the content focused on playhouses but have wandered a bit from time to time. For the most part I think this is a place of inspiration and joy. The last few post have been far and few in between, and I feel the need to do a little explaining. It was not my plan to just disappear for months at a time. I have always enjoyed the blog and regardless of what kind of mood I'm in, after doing a post on a playhouse, I'm always happier. Over the last few months I have had no energy, and I mean none. What little I had was used on feeding and taking care of my two little boys. I am so thankful for my wonderful husband who has gone to work and taken care of almost everything at home for the last several months. After sixteen weeks of a very difficult pregnancy, I had a miscarriage. The baby girl had down syndrome along with other problems, and we knew for the last few weeks that she would not make it. I have been very hesitant to share this information, but I know many families have experienced similar situations. I don't want to go into much more detail than this, but I would like to talk about an unexpected side effect.
I have never had my creative spirit just go away. It may sound silly, but it's a part of who I am and how I think. At one point I recognized it's absence, and even wondered if it was gone for good. Looking back I honestly believe my body was just too tired and sick to do anything that wasn't necessary. I am beginning to feel like myself again and can't wait to get started on a few new projects! It's good to be back!
I wish I could take credit for the tepee above, but it was just a pleasant surprise we stumbled upon at the park in our neighborhood.
