I have finally started to recover from last quarter’s events. As you may have known, my 4 year old was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in December and we’ve been learning some new things about parenting we never knew before! As far as getting back into a routine, I feel like it’s starting to finally happen. I’ve gained back all the weight I lost at the first of my pregnancy (a whopping 18 lbs.) and a few extra to boot. The baby is kicking around regularly, and we have the ultrasound next week! My mom is recovering miraculously and doctors say she’ll make a full recovery, how blessed we are!

As I think about work, and printing and design now that I’m out of the woods again, I find that one of the main things I’ve been afraid of getting back into is blogging. I feel like there are so many different things in my life now, that puts blogging in a backseat position, however our Diabetic Educator is encouraging us to pick up where we left off and put the pieces back together. I wonder if I am the same person, or if new me will be as responsive to design trends and new clothes when there’s insulin to be paid for and blood tests to be taken every couple of hours. And then I consider: I want my son to have as fulfilling a life with diabetes as he would have had otherwise. If I can’t put myself back together how will he ever do it? So we are bringing it all back. The fun – into our lives. Join me as I continue to blog from a dingbat’s perspective with design eccentricities, current work, GIVEAWAYS, and maybe a little diabetes education on the side.

Below, for those in the throes of wedding planning, a little iCANDY for a favor idea. Great for the recession, and on the pocket books, these were adorned with tags printed by yours truly to match this invitation suite. Enjoy!
