The reason I’ve been so absent from the bubble lately, and have ignored all the lovely Christmas greetings and bubblemails (so sorry about that!!)

This is Levi, 11 days old and perfectly wonderful. He was born a little prem (at 35 weeks) and is doing very well after his 10 day NICU stay. The rest of the family are head over heels in love, as am I. : )

I’d like to wish everybody belated holiday greetings, hope you are all having a marvelous December and enjoy the New Year! Thank you for another fabulous year here at Redbubble, it’s been amazing.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    Ohhhh… had him! What a little darling! :) He has piano fingers I see. I am so excited for you, Mick- I have tears in my eyes. He’s truly a little package sent to you (Express delivery ;) from above and I can almost see what he will look like when he’s older by his bone structure- even his expression. You know, he’s absolutely beautiful. (Not all newborns are! heheh..) SO happy for you! I can’t wait to see what you do with both of your new toys. (The camera and Levi. ;)

  • Thank you so much, Birgitta!! the camera came with a 50mm lens (plus two others) – I can’t wait to get some practice with it!! It was a gift from my generous husband and I’m so excited, though I haven’t had any time to really try it out yet! As for Levi, what a great toy! He looks almost exactly like Hudson did at birth, and Hudson is STILL cute, so that bodes well for his future… lol. I am going to enjoy him, and the camera, so much. : )
