Etsy wishlist: Quill and Fox

Recently I've been browsing Etsy for stationery and lettery bits, as I have become extremely bored with my collection. Never mind that I could write 100 letters and still have quite a bit of paper left over, I think. That's neither here nor there.

Quill and Fox is a lovely shop that offers delicious graphics and illustrations on cards and postcards. I love the quirky and cute, yet classic elements of the designs. My favourite listing is the Monster postcard set - it's so wonderful I wouldn't be able to send it out!

I'm a cutie, didn't you know?

*dusts off blog*

Oh, hey guys! You're still here? Sweet!

After 8 months without internet at home, we have taken the plunge and signed up for it again. Chris has been doing a lot of freelance design work lately, and it's really inconvenient for him to not be able to email his clients and collaborators from home while he's doing the work. Plus, I like blogging, hanging out on the League of Extraordinary Penpals forum, and stuff. And it feels good to be able to Google whenever I want to. So you'll be seeing a lot more of me again! I know you're excited about that :)

Last night I was looking through some old pictures I had on my hard-drive, and I found the folder of the pictures that we had in our wedding slideshow. It kind of made me want a baby really bad, because I realized that Chris and I were both amazingly adorable babies, so naturally we will make amazingly adorable babies.

Exhibit A:

So I guess I was cute at one point in my life. 

Exhibit B:

This picture cracks me up hysterically every time I see it! He still makes that face from time to time, haha.

See? Our kids will be freaking adorable. So I really want to have a baby now and see who they will look like more. I'm hoping Chris, he's hoping me. If only I weren't so afraid that I'm too immature to be a mama. But I know that when the time is right then God will let us know! Til then, I guess I'll stick to looking at baby pictures and praying and dreaming.
