My Baby Boy was born 13th oct.. We're Still in the hospital tho..

My boy was born at 38 and a half weeks… weighing 6 pound 15 ounce…
He is gorgeous!
His name is Flynn Deezle Cardy
Here he is on his first and second day here..


Today he is 11 days old :)
I went into labour around midnight n very early hours of tuesday morning.. Was in labour all day and it was getting steadily more painful lol, and then it got really really intense once night fell. About 4am we called the hospital to tell them my contractions were like 2 min apart so they told us to come in, and my little man was born at 10 to 7am on the wednesday morning.
On the thursday night we were transferred to my local hospital and everything was perfect :)
Unfortunately he came down with a severe case of jaundice on his third day (friday)and had to be put under the lights in the humidicrib..

He start…

3 weeks til edd...

Officially only 3 weeks left now until our new bubbas due date!!!
Excited! Scared! :)
These last few months have been quite hard.. been ordered to bedrest and couch rest and havnt been able to do much at all really.. one of the things of being so tiny and having a huge baby belly.. plus a slew of other problems and hiccups along the way that have made this pregnancy so far very trying…
But will all be worth it in the end, and the good news is that even though I am spent and have this pain and sickness which i wont go into detail about.. baby boy is apparantly healthy as.. so he’s taking all my goodness and growing strong getting ready to be born in a mere few weeks.. So i am not strssing too much…
Oh time is flashing by.. My little girl wil be 4 in another two months, she starts kindergarten …

A few of the reasons why...

…I havnt been here much lately.
I didnt realise how many months had passed since I was last “active” on here in bubbleland, but it has been a long time now.…

Reasons… Creative Slump… Time Loss… Missions and of course, the Big News!

Creative Slump, we’ve all been there, mine has been on n off for the past year it seems, mainly off… There were times where I had the stamina and want and ideas and managed to do pieces here n there or take photos… and it all ended up sitting there on my files, collecting cyber dust.
So, bear with me as I have quite a few pieces to add over the next hours/days..

Time Loss, Dont really need to point out that no matter how many hours are in a day there always never seems to be enough to get everything done :) oh well, thats life, but it does make one tired…

Oooh spe

Halloween greetings.. late for us aussies i know :)

Hey hey my Lovelies! Happy Halloween!
Missed you all!

Feels strange not being here socialising and networking n all that jazz, been a few months now…
Surgery went well.. all healed up.. on the road to better!
Zafyre is doing Awesome! Beyond Awesome! B-Awesome! (we’ve been watching alot of Bolt the superdog!)
I swear I know the Cars movie (pixar) of by heart now lol, I could recite the entire length movie to you, with all the music bits too lol… Zafyre is obsessed with the film, she loves it alot! I bought her some of those die cast cars from “Cars”
with the eyes n everything, they’re so cute! Oh and Monsters Inc… another of her faves.. another one permanently engraved into my brain :)
So, Was halloween last night here.. we had the gates closed so we didnt see any trick or treaters… Have to have…

surgery tomorro...

Hey :)
Just a quick note.
Tomorrow I’m going in for surgery, so I’ll be offlline for a little while.
When I’m feeling better/recovered, I’ll catch up :)
Nothing life threatening.. but, y’now, I am somewhat of a private person, so i wont go on about details… :) Just something that needs to be healed from injuries from past lives… I’ll be ok :) I hope!!! Just thought I’d let you know why I;ve been offline for awhile, and will continue to be for an indefinate time…
(if i feel up to it, i’ll be back in a few days, but i dont know how well/quick i’ll recover.)…

So.. before I dissapear for however long…
Thankyou to the mystery buyer of a mounted print of my piece Edge of my World It is very much appreciated!

So.. before I dissapear for however long…
Thankyou to the mystery buyer of a mounted print of

Sales.. Thanking ya's!

So Thankyou to the two mystery buyers of my tees Cats are swingin and devient sa mort in the last few days,

And also a big thankyou to the mystery buyer who bought a matted print of my piece Unwanted while I was MIA, I was absolutely stoked when I saw that so thanx!

I dont normally “advertise” when I make a sale, usually my buyers are mystery buyers/anonymous buyers.. non RB members… And Its not in my nature to gloat.. but it is part of my nature to show appreciation so I’m faced with a bit of a catch 22 whenever I make a sale.. lol.
Like when I sold a laminated print of Fearie Kin a few months back, I wasnt sure whether to write the “thankyou to anonymous buyer” or not… of course its different if i know who bought it, I simply send them a personal thankyou or if geographical location al…

replying to comments.. overload the only way to go...

Sorry guys, but I have figured out that with the amount of art I have, and do, and the gorgeous comments I recieve, oh, and the recent few months of not being here due to Real Life Issues, well, all has resulted in a massive catching up of sorts that I must do…
My gallery is a mess, the tag system changed awhile back I have recently learned, so I’ll need to redo the two worded tags… and fix up all the descriptions… those ones that were put up in a hurry or tired and lack the ever so interesting poetry or other jazz i can go on about next to an image lol… description areas… they need redoing.
And the credits n resources page needs updating, which is a very important one, and the features, I have completely lost track of features.. Is there anyway to back track them? I mean, find out whats b…

erratic

Sorry my presence here has been somewhat erratic lately…

Just as we resumed access to the world wibe web, things here in Real Life took a turn for the worse and I have been busy with the things that need dealing with…
I’m not intentionally bein a snob or ignoring any of you, I just have got to get a better handle on time management with the new stresses that have sprung on us and in the meantime I’ll do my best to get around to each of you and see your new works and reply to all the comments…
I made the mistake of thinking that perhaps life was starting to work out and treat us with, er, respect.. :) and i even got excited to that extent, imagined I would have the head space to not only catch up on everything but create new.. and, as those of you that know me better than the rest, you know w…

Update - Wont have internet for a few weeks :(

Hey :)
So in the middle of the actual move now… sitting in an empty house with only the computer hooked up still… is a little bit surreal.
-—————
Really I’m on borrowed/stolen time.. Lol, as I am meant to be at this very moment cleaning up this empty house :)
but thought I’d quickly jump on here and check how things were…
we’ve been at the new house for a few days now… I’m not sure how long exactly it will be before I am online at the new place, found an internet provider that does good deals, and will probably take about 12 21 days to get hooked up.. lol, I love how they give you specific dates.. but I think that it will be going ahead on the 12th.. fingers crossed that it is no later than that as i have found that I am not digging not being able to visit bubbleland at those 1am and 2am times

So i'm kinda back but still all over the place :)

Not feelin quite right today.. I couldnt sleep last night as usual but whats not usual is its so bitten me in the arse today and my energy level is like zero and i’ve been noddin off in the lounge while zafyre watches her shows… terrible!
So i havnt been here for about… i dont know, since my birthday… over a week ago… thats a long time to be away from bubbleland for me lol…I checked in the other day… said somethin to someone… but was distracted and pulled away….
Havnt been feelin it much lately… the urge to connect, or maybe that urge to connect got so overwhelming that i had to break everything off..retreat… hide lol.
I been busy too… finished my book… Mind Rhymes… just got to get a copy of it now and make sure its all good in print…. started another one… been cooking dinner this week gone…
