Anticipation at the newest arrival to the arts-and-crafts store. A baby boy!
One of the managers that joined our team this past summer showed up already several months pregnant.
We've watched her slowly grow in size over the months, her walk eventually becoming a waddle. Little baby kicks became noticeable pains that stopped her in her tracks...and made the rest of us nervous.
How was she feeling? Did she have the baby yet? Is she having the baby now?! were all things we'd ask each other.
Everyone wondered what would happen if she had the baby at the store (she was determined to work up till the very end of her pregnancy).
Visions of her sprawled out in the scrapbooking section came to mind, biting through contractions as embossing powder and stamp pads flanked her sides. What a tale that would be to tell!
I'm happy to report she had her baby late last month (not at work--whew!).
To celebrate this monumental event, I made her a little card.
Watercolors and acrylic on watercolor paper - 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" (NFS)
Just a little something to send her in the mail until she returns from maternity leave.
Congrats on your little one, Jen! May he bring you much joy!!
