Pinky.etsy.com is Closed

But only temporary. I really have been unhappy with my photos and every time I look at my shop, I'm like "Pinky, those photos suck! You have to take new ones, it's not like you're doing anything." Yeah, I smack talk myself. I'm also going to change the name so that it's just Handmade Art because I'm going to be adding some other things to the shop besides jewelry.

Well, I guess that's about it. Not much is going on here. It's actually pretty boring so if any of you guys have good book or movie suggestions, let me know. I'm getting sick of being stuck in the house all day!! Hope you have a Happy Leap Day!!!



Do you see this face?

I was trying to make her smile normal for me, but she wouldn't. I got sassy face instead. She looks so grown up!! Her ears aren't pierced, but we discovered the joy that is the clip on section at Claire's. I picked these large hoops out and surprised her with them. I agree, it's not normally what I would do. But I also bought me a pair of skull and crossbones earrings, so who knows what I'm doing lately!!

I'm really proud of my baby. She's smart, kind and beautiful all wrapped up in one sweet and caring little body. I am so thankful for her and the joy that she has given me every day for the last 7 years and five months. Sure, it hasn't always been easy, but being a mom is more rewarding than anything I've ever done. Give your kids a little extra love today and if you don't have any, give some extra love to someone that means the world to you.

Hugs ~N~ Luv,



I've been having trouble sleeping, I mentioned it once before. Hubs and I have been trying to eliminate all the things that seem to be waking me up. The sleep timer on the TV wakes me up because the television makes a loud *vumph* sound when it shuts off, so I turn it off when I'm ready to go to sleep now. I finally figured out my pillow configurations and that's good. But here's the thing, I sleep like a baby when the bedside light is on. All night. It wakes hubs up and since he has to be at work early, I don't like waking him up. So, I fell asleep, I'm talking drooling like mad sleep, then woke up a little and turned of the light.

And then I woke up. W I D E awake.

I came downstairs to get some ham because that seemed to be the sensible thing to eat at 11:00 at night when you are pregnant and cannot sleep. I think hubs is going to have to adjust to sleeping with the light on for a little while, or I'm going to have to move back into the guest bedroom. I don't want to do that.

Alright, I'm going to try to go back to sleep. I did remember that although I paid all the work bills for this month, I did not send in my sales tax on time. That'll wake anybody up. I've got to do payroll in the morning, so I'll just do it then. I have to admit, it's hard to run a business when you are stuck at the house all day. I want to be there so much, but I get so sick every time I push it. Maybe second trimester will be better. Here's hoping.


I'll bet you guys are wondering...

how it is that I'm posting so much lately? Well, the answer to that is easy. I had a few problems and I'm being forced to chill out. Keep in mind what a difficult thing this is for me to do. But, I do want this little Pod, so I don't really have a choice. What's nice is that I'm going to be able to create more jewelry, get into sewing like I want to and I have already made 2 blankies for my daughter's stuffed animal, Bunny. You can see Bunny in this shot:

I know you can see the bears, the white bunny and the big dog. Look closely to the one she's clutching onto in slumber, that would be Bunny. He's already had one leg replacement surgery and we've tried to clean him, but his fur is matted with love. I had one or two favorites like that and I'm glad she has one, too.

This Saturday (or was is Sunday?) we turned a plain old box into a two story townhouse for Bunny. Complete with construction paper ceiling fans, tables, toothbrush and toothpaste and a wide screen television. Oh, yeah. Bunny had a party later with all his friends and they stayed up and watched football. You just can't beat that.


A small gripe about maternity clothes.

It's not like I'm a fashion Diva to begin with, but I've been checking out some maternity clothes because I will need them before I realize it. However, I have noticed a trend in several different companies. This for example:

I don't wear my shirts that tight to begin with, let alone when I'm about to rupture with child. Maybe it's just me, or maybe the trends have changed that much since I had Miss Pinky, but I don't think you will be finding me parading around in this.

And then, there was this:

In case you don't know what that is, it's a MINI SKIRT FOR PREGNANT WOMEN!! Now, that's just sick. Sick, I tell you! I'm going back to shopping and see if there is something out there for the, ahem, less hip momma.



I have to admit, I've been waiting on this for too long. Hubby and I are ridiculous fans and I cannot wait to see this on May 22nd!! This is totally going to be my birfday present:

I think it's a little funny that Indiana eludes to the fact that he is seriously getting old and that it's not like it used to be. I only hope that they don't do that too much through the movie, it could wear on me.

In oddly related news, Hubs and I have been hashing out names for the Pod. I told him that I really like the name Jackson, but he named his dog that. Hubs points out that in Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, Dr. Jones, Sr. remarks that they named the dog Indiana. "I always like that dog" was the response from our fav Indy, so who knows what fate awaits the Pod. Named after a dog? Just maybe....


The Pod and Sleep

Well, I must admit that I'm lucky in the fact that I don't have morning sickness. I do have "feel-like-crap-all-day", though and I could do without that. The crappy feeling is also coupled with it's cousin "need-to-sleep-all-day-but-refuses-to-sleep-at-night". Around 3 in the afternoon, I'm cross eyed with the need to nap. Come bedtime?? You can't pay me to sleep. It's really starting to wear on me. I was more than cranky today and my darling husband is starting to understand that I may either yell or cry at him at any given moment. I may do both at the same time. Also, I may do it in public.

Other than the fact that I have to eat at least 5 times a day or I get terribly sick, I cannot seem to sleep at night, my hands itch and I get overly emotional at the slightest thing, I'm doing just fine. It's going to be a long time till the Pod comes due.


Happy Birthday To you ~*~*~*~

What up Big Brutha?? Having a happy day yet? Well, prolly not since it's not even seven in the morning. But, you gotta admit, things are pretty awesome for you on this day. You have a great job, a super hott girlfriend, amazing friends, a family that loves you and a baby sister that still thinks you are the best big brother in the universe. We made you presents, but I'm a slacker and they didn't get mailed in time, but you know how that goes. I did have one thing to give you today, though... Another member of the family that loves you, too. Yep, Uncle Gorjus, you're going to be an Uncle again! Cool, and slightly terrifying, huh?

Well, even though I could sit and talk to you for hours, I've already got one little girl who's got to get up and get ready for school. We love you like crazy, Happy Birthday, Gorjus.

Hugs and kisses and best of wishes,
the leetle seester plus one, Miss Pinky and J.C.!!
