won’t you look at that! here’s a glimpse of the playing cards that are going out as backer prizes to everyone who ordered the Art of Loish artbook through kickstarter :)

speaking of kickstarter, 3Dtotal (the publisher of my artbook) has a new project up. i’m not participating in this one but a lot of AMAZING artists are, including some of my personal faves like Ilya Kuvshinov, Charlie Bowater, and Tran Nguyen. definitely check it out if you’re into tutorials and learning new techniques: 100 Hours on Kickstarter

We have scheduled our midwife appointments up to week 40. Eeek. We go every other week for three more visits, and then it’s weekly.
I’m very much looking forward to our 36 week visit to go over our birth plan, etc.

At our 30 week visit on Monday, we discussed the babe’s size. Fundal height was a week ahead, which is congruent with our ultrasound (2 weeks ahead) so she wants to do a growth scan around 38 weeks to see where he’s at size wise. My wife is likely too tiny to deliver a 10 pound baby, so i’m pleased that they would consider an induction if he’s too big at that time.
We prefer an intervention free birth, but some things are necessary.

She also told Amber she needs to be eating more non-healthy food, ha! She’s just not gaining enough weight each week at this time. So naturally, I made some brownies today. 😂

Other than that + being sick + aching all of the time- they are healthy + looking great.
I know she feels like shit right now, but she looks amazing.

Birth classes are finished + I feel like we are prepared. Our shower is in twelve days. I have lots to do, but i’m ready!


I just wanna let the followers know I have been informed that at the end of the month I am going to Niagara Falls and will be away for the weekend. My sister is coming up to visit and bringing my nephews, so I will probably be really busy at the beginning of March. Unfortunately, this means I probably won’t have content for a week. I hope you all understand and I love you.  

So I realize I have 2 more Rumples to do for bonus Carlyle a Days, I’m going to try to get to them this week.  

I’m also working on a new Begbie painting to celebrate the new novel.  

Oh, and I’m jumping back into my Barney Thomson thesis since all my grad school stuff is in.
