My maternity clothes. I had built up a really extensive wardrobe by the end, and I miss some of those pieces! Especially the maternity jeans. Ahh, comfort.
Never worrying that I looked fat in something. I was pregnant, not fat … and now I am, uh, not pregnant. And getting dressed is definitely not as fun, when you have to scrutinize how you look in clothes.
The attention. Yeah, I said it. Now the baby gets all of the attention. It is SO not “all about me” anymore. Luckily, I get to accept the compliments on his behalf 🙂
I’m Heather Laura Clarke. I’m journalist and blogger in beautiful Nova Scotia, I have a 10-year-old son and an 8-year-old daughter, I married my high school sweetheart, and this is the story of my handmade life.
Whether I’m working on my novel, decorating a room, busting out my power tools to build furniture, getting muddy in the pottery studio, sewing clothes for my kids, or cross-stitching a swear word, I’m all about using my creativity to craft a life I love.
