Somebody is really excited for Christmas this year. He even asked to meet Santa! With just a short handful of days before our holiday begins, and the deadline for my book, The Handmade Mama, coming up fast, I've decided to step away from Mary Makes Good until the new year.
Over the next two weeks I will be busy working on sewing patterns for my book, tidying up the text and directions, giving my chapters another look-over, and making plans for our final photo shoot. With any luck, the project will be headed to my publisher by mid-January.
Another reason I decided to take this break is to make a little extra room in my life for our brand new pregnancy. Thank you all for the prayers and good wishes, by the way, we had a bit of a Christmas miracle take place last week and I can't help but think that all of those positive thoughts may have helped make that happen.
Since I can hardly stay away from my blog entirely, I will probably still be checking in now and then over on my mama diary, Mary Makes Babies. If you want to follow my mama journey and hear me share all the feelings, you can visit me there and even subscribe by email. Otherwise, just keep an eye out for me on Instagram.
See you in 2017! Wishing all of you a gentle and joyful end to 2016 and a very happy new year.
XO Mary Helen
