I've seen countless women dig into their creative and crafty side when they become pregnant and/or become a mom. I never understood it. Ooohhh, do I get it now! I'm on bed rest for two months before my delivery date. Talk about making me crazy! I'm not one to be able to sit around, staring at the television, and eating chocolate. Although I appreciate those moments:) I need structure and human interaction. I need to feel useful and productive and it's killing me to just sit around! Everyone tries to make me feel better saying things like, "consider it your job to lay low and keep your baby from coming too early". While I appreciate the attempts, that does not help ease my restlessness. I also have an anxiety disorder on top of it totally unrelated to the pregnancy so put it all together and I'm a hot mess! All that to say, I have to have at least one plan per day. Doctor appointment, lunch or dinner with a friend, visit with Grandma, store with the hubs, go to my bff's house, whatever it may be...I just need one thing to wake up for. I also need projects. So I've been crafting. The nursery is almost completely DIY projects and it continues! I thought I would share a few of my projects.
