Well, I'm really glad that I started simplifying my jewelry business last year. It's going to come in handy this year and future years.
I'm about 4-5 weeks pregnant. =) Just took a test last night and it didn't even take 30 seconds for the results to register.
And yes, I'm sharing now even though there is still a high chance of a miscarriage. None of my family read my blogs so I'm not so worried about them finding out. I'm not telling anyone at work or in my family until at least 2 months.
This clearly affects my jewelry business though.
For one thing, I have my photo "studio" set up in the spare room and that is going to be the baby's room. Plus it got kind of trashed during Christmas when we were redoing the living room floors and moved everything in there. We have some major cleaning to do.
There's a bed in there. Do we leave it there? The bookshelf will have to move out ... but where I don't know. My photo stuff will have to go in the garage and we'll need to clean off a space for it on the back shelf. Will a crib fit in the room with the bed and the dresser?
The closet is full of old prom dresses and my wedding dress (yes, I suck...I need to have it cleaned and stored). Not to mention all the old 'stuff' we store in there.
What about all my jewelry supplies in the kitchen? My work space isn't exactly organized and I'd venture to say it's a hazard area for kids. Hubby is always finding beads on the floor. Not to mention the flammable materials and torch. But I don't want to move everything to the garage - it's cold in there!
I can't imagine that I will just stop making jewelry all together. I still need that creative outlet. I'm sure I'll be pretty busy once the little rug rat arrives - but eventually I imagine that I'll want to keep creating and selling.
Anyone else gone through this? What did you do?
I'm a little freaked out. *grin*
