Where Have I Been?!?!?!

Hey friends!  Ok, I know you are all thinking...WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!

I have just been SO busy with the end of the school my husband and I found out that we are having a baby!!!  YES!  Our first one!  So I have been super super super super SUPER ALL the time.  But now that it is summer and I am starting my 2nd trimester, I am hoping to have more time and energy to make new clip art & finally finish some requests that I have had.

On top of all of that, my husband and I are also buying a new house.  We will be closing in mid July...after being on vacation in Maine for 2 weeks. AND for the upcoming school year, I will no longer be teaching 1st grade!  I will be teaching Kindergarten!  I KNOW!  Blog name change?  Ehhh probably not...I'm too lazy hehehehe....but ayyyy yaaah yaaaah....I am a busy girl!  But what can I say?  God has really blessed us with many amazing opportunities and I am so thankful for everything!

Needless to say...this summer will definitely be busy with moving into our new house, moving into my new classroom, being pregnant, etc...but I am determined to make time to work on my Etsy shop!

Thank you to everyone who has been checking in on me and please let me know of any new requests that you have.  I will try my best to work on them!
