Hello all! It has been quite a long time since I last posted here. As this post’s title suggests, a lot has changed for me. I am finally a mom!! Benjamin Lee Yoshimitsu Kemble was born September 26th, 2013 at 7 lbs 4 oz. and is going to be two months old in just a few days.
It has changed everything as many people told me it would. I have been consumed with caring for him, adjusting to the worst kind of sleep deprivation I’ve ever experienced, along with post partum depression (that is finally gone, Thank you Lord), and also falling in love like I’ve never fallen in love before. It is actually hard for me to remember what life was like before him. I am at the same time facing the end of my maternity leave in just one more month and hoping I can juggle work, Benjamin, and, hopefully, a bout of freelance work! Some of the work I did while I was pregnant is soon to be available as well. A new company, Kayu Media, is launching their first interactive children’s book titled The Story of Rotten Lucy Grace, illustrated by yours truly and written by Julia Walton.
Also, some paintings I did for Fadenrot are now available as jewelry!
I expect that posting will stay a bit sporadic for a while but I hope eventually to get back on track with my career.
