  2. Hello!
    Congratulations on the imminent birth of your child! I can't say I remember, at that late stage, ever being able to sleep on my back! I was always on one side or another with a long pillow to prop my belly!

    I suppose I should think of something profound to say to win something but all I can say is I want to win something! How greedy am I!

    Take care!

  3. I know how you feel I used to spend the last week or to with a clock in one hand (every little pain got timed and logged just in case this was the one) and a remote control in the other for the TV as there was nothing much more I could do. Even making a bed used to take me 20 minutes. Sleep all you can while you can cos little blob will have other ideas and they usually come with there own agenda.
    Best of luck

  4. Hello,

    How exciting - your first child - you will fall instantly and forever in love with that child; you can't help yourself!

    I'd love to win one of your prizes and thanks so much for the video.


  5. Oooo, prizes! :) Count me in.

    And 38 weeks, so cool. Almost there...

  6. Great Video! Thanks for thinking of all of us peeps while your in the last stages of pregnacy! I couldn't do anything but lay around when I was pregnant, and not a single strech mark how did you do that? I have way too many, but then, my kids are almost 30 and I never put cream on my tummy, they also have so many great baby products out now that I didn't have, I have grandkids tho so I did finally get to play with some of them! I hope you have a quick and pain free delivery!! Can't wait to see pics of him!

  7. Great video Tam,
    I would love to be entered into your giveaway please.

  8. I would like to enter your drawing but also wish you luck on your new baby! How exciting!

  9. Nice job on the ATC's! :)

  10. I love your baby belly!! I am so happy for you. I have made a few ATC's but found it frustrating. Watching your video you made it so clear. I was trying to hard! (not used to such a tiny size). You have the ability to clear away the mind clutter and make a clear path to beautiful art. Thanks!

  11. Tam,best wishes to you and Andy on your new baby . She will be beautiful i am very sure . best to you

    I hope I win.. Ann

  13. Look at that big o' baby belly. It's the cutest thing I've ever seen. Congratulations, and best of luck to you. Is it your first baby?

    Thank you for doing this video. I never really knew what an ATC was before. Yours that you make are very lovely.

    Ooh and I hope, I hope I am a winner of your contest. Your art is so beautiful-- and a chance for a spot in your workshop? Ahh, I almost died when I heard.

  14. Fff, Tam, you must be so excited!!!

    Lovely inspiring video as always! HobbyCraft also sell blank ATCs in their scrapbooking section in packs of about 250 for 2.99 - you've given me some great ideas on how to use the ones I have!

    Cool reuse of the Harry Potter book as well ;)

  15. Tam, you don't look huge; you look beautiful!!!! I am so excited for you and I think I might join the ATC group it sounds fun! I would be honored to win any of the four prizes!!! XOXOXO

  16. I can't believe you find the energy for sharing your art and thoughts with the rest of us. I remember that time for me and could barely move around during the last days. You look amazing. Take the time to rest once your bundle of joy is out into this world. That's the number one advice I give to new parents.
    Enjoy those precious moments to come. LOL

  17. I can't wait to see your new baby. I hope you'll show us lot's of pictures. :)

    And a Prize Give Away? Ooooo. All of the prizes are great.

  18. Hi Tam

    Great video! And great prizes! Your girls are so gorgeous - can't wait for you to do a portrait class. You look beautiful too! Where do you get your energy from?! ;-) Take care, Love, Lindsay x

  19. Hi Tam, leaving a comment here, love the givaway idea, I just got a prize for the July Challenge over at Deb's group, hope I'm on a roll here. Take a look at the winning picture, it's in my album in Willowing and Friends, it's inspired on the story of the Three Wise Men, but I gave it a twist,the challenge was to do something ispired on a holiday. By the way, I remember how hard it was to sleep at the end of my pregnancy, but I also remember how I felt when I was eating, it did not natter how hungry I was, the baby sure put a limit to how much I could have in one sitting, after a while I would start feeling out of breath. How about you?
    Blessings, Love and Light!

  20. Hi Tam
