I am giving a few extra days for this one since you all might have to get some materials.

HOW DO YOU SEE YOURSELF AS A PREGNANT WOMAN?


For instructions and ideas go here

Okay, im totally doing this one and posting it today, i promise! Glad im not the only one whose late though LOL

Okay! Here is my picture, i whipped this up in about 15 minutes when Brooklyn was napping LOL! Now that im looking at it the hippie-ness of it is seriously cracking me up! But i think its got my feelings down to a tea, so i guess im just a hippie! Okay here goes...as a pregnant woman im very small, a small woman closely connected to a very large earth and sky, connected in a very holistic circle of life sort of way! The world is bright and vibrant and rich in colors, and im being brought back to my roots, like a primal hunter gatherer peacefully walking along with all the wisdom handed down by generations of women before her. The forest is where i like to be because its dark and quiet, sheltering and old and wise in itself, and im hoping that i absorb this wisdom as i know it will help me in birth and motherhood. I just realized there are three trees, which i didnt plan but i love because its my third pregnancy! My hair and body are healthy and beautiful and im radiating with positive energy LOL! The sun is bright and shining, and everything is optimistic.

There you go. Thats how i see myself as a pregnant woman




Now somebody pleeeeeeease join me and post some art! My art is lonely all by itself! LOL! And im so excited to see what everyone else comes up with!

OH.MY.GOSH!!!! Yours is soooo good, absolutely beautiful and so insightful!!! Now I'm super embarrassed! I can't believe I'm doing this and I definitely can't believe it was my idea.

I am a terrible artist so please don't judge too harshly!

Tiffany, its fabulous, dont be self concious about it, in fact you should enlarge it so i can see it better! LOL! I love your writing about it, it made me grin! I never thought to write it on the page, i should have, it would make it more interesting to look back on!

We are totally onto something here, im really excited to do this every week, im so excited for next weeks that i might just do it tomorrow, i dont know if i cant wait any longer!

Now where is everyone else? i want to see more art and read more blurbs!

Um... no on the enlargement. This one was just terrible. Thank you for being so kind!

I will enlarge this next one. I actually already did it because I wasn't sure if anyone was really going to do this. Now that I know you will at least be doing it, I will hold off on anymore until we're caught up. I actually did the next one too, lol. I've done a total of 3. So, if you want to go ahead do the next one tomorrow I can go ahead and post a third one, it's up to you, I don't want to rush you or anyone else. If so, anyone else wants to join in they can just add they're art as they do it.

I'm so excited about this too! I love the fact that I can truly express how I'm feeling through this pregnancy and I will be able to remember it forever and share it with my daughter in the future!

Yeah i really dont think we should worry ourselves about the 'quality', mine just looks bright because i happened to have some pastels in my drawer and they really jump out at you! My picture is still pretty elementary LOL! we'll just remember that some questions will inspire us into more detail than others, and some days we'll be pressed for time and just scribble something down! Mostly i think its important just to get in tune with our thoughts. Okay, im doing the second one right now, i've actually known what i was going to sketch all day but i havent gotten around to sitting down and doing it! But now that DH is home i can finally get on it!

But yes, if its just the two of us lets do lots, lets fill up our whole books!!! Maybe if people see how much fun we're having then they wont be able to resist joining in LOL!
