A heat index of 101 degrees Fahrenheit with humidity akin to that found in a hobo's undercarriage and being heavily pregnant do not mix. At all. Until the new little person pops out in early October or Indiana stops being a hell dimension of heat, I'm voluntarily sequestered indoors with the A/C on full blast.

Everyone else is busy doing outdoorsy insane things that are inappropriate for someone 'heavy with seed' so I'm pretty much ready to scratch my eyes out with boredom, as evidenced by how many cartoon animal paintings I've made for the baby's room.

If she had a room yet... (I'm still a little reluctant to give up the sewing studio for someone who could, quite literally, be kept in a drawer...)

The great thing about creating things for babies - they don't care if you can't paint. Bright colours, big smiles and the occasional top hat and you're golden!

I live in Ohio, so I know about the humidity.  Tongue

I was pregnant through the summer with all four of my girls so I understand 100% how you feel  Cry  On the plus side your paintings are adorable!!!  FoxyBaby loves giraffes so I am especially partial to that one but I also love the octopus and seahorse.  Too cute!!!

Hang in there . . .
