I had a pretty nice weekend!
Today Melody’s pack in play Calista crib arrived through the UPS! I was so happy to get it that I couldn’t stand keeping in the box for a few more months so I got Justin to put it up that night. I helped a little bit by putting the mobile with the little white teddy bears on it together. It fit nicely beside my computer table in front of the window so she’ll get plenty of sunlight during the day while I am working on new designs and things on my computer and it’s in a nice enough spot that at night I can pull the crib over next to me by the bed so she won’t be so far away for more my security than hers probably. I know it’ll be odd to not have her so close to me after I give birth so for my own piece of mind, I want to keep her close. What can I say I’m a slightly protective mommy already… guess it comes with the territory.
What else happened on Friday? I created two new text based typography Valentine designs to put on Zazzle products. Justin got the job he was set out to get! \o/ Now pray that in three months that they hire him so he won’t be a temp anymore and we can have better insurance health wise for us and the baby.
Justin didn’t have to work on Saturday so we went out and had lunch at Uwajimaya for my birthday ( we also went there last year on my birthday). I had ginger pork and the safe sushi for Pregnant ladies…it was very yummy! We also bought some furikake, old man’s beard ( lol… a nickname for a certain seaweed my sisters and I made up), regular sushi, and Asian noodles. Yum! Totoro grew because now the Asain bookstore located in the grocery store has super sized Totoro’s lol.
Justin and I watched Transformers this evening… it wasn’t a bad movie… did have some questionable content that wasn’t needed though… hence the PG 13 rating.
Sunday ( My 23rd Birthday)
Tis the day when one turns another year older and it was my day for gaining another year. Hopefully another year wiser and more mature in Christ! Justin made me a nice breakfast of dough nuts, grits, sausage, and corn beef hash ( my favorite!). During breakfast he surprised me with not one but two white gold necklaces that he had been hiding away for over a month! I honestly had no idea that he got me anything so he really surprised me with that 🙂 One of the necklaces has a butterfly and the other an eagle. I like them both very much. After breakfast we headed to church and several people wished me a happy birthday 🙂 The message was good … it was about guarding your eyes from darkness. For lunch we headed to Pizza Hut to have lunch with Mom and Dad Lowmaster and Auntie Megan (their treat). We had Hawaiian pizza and a sausage, tomato, mushroom pizza… 🙂 Shortly after lunch we headed back to their house and I opened gifts, had a yummy cake, and we played a game ( Justin and I won).
After the game we headed to Bible study and weren’t late \o/ lol… They surprised me with gifts and a yummy carrot cake 🙂
It was a good birthday and also the Bible Study was good, I got a lot out of it. I missed my family in Georgia yes… but I know they were thinking of me and it made it okay.

I’ve kept busy all day working on image copyright watermarking things so it’s harder for people to steal my work without having to do some extra work. Tis a shame things like that have to be done but they world can be an ugly place. I also finished a birthday card for someone whose birthday in February and I still have two more to designs and a Valentines Card for my hubby to start working on. February sure is a busy month for gifting people!
This morning before anything else, I put up a baby registry at Target … I think I have most of everything that baby needs and that I want for her to have on there. If you want to get anything for sweet little Melody you can find the registry by putting my name in ERIN LOWMASTER. Do feel free… we’d appreciate it ^^
I made bread today… it wasnt’ a rock this time like it was last time but it was still a bit hard… it rose alot more… next time I am going to not use the bread machine and see if that helps any.
I am about to retire for the evening… I just got done logging my daily art, sending new art over to my gallery, and logging my earnings in several places for easy reference. What a busy mom am I!
Someone stole my artwork/design and was using to to their own profit on their Zazzle site. They’ve yet to take the image off but have been reported for copyright violation by myself, several of my family members and close friends. I found them because their product with my design on it was featured as a TBA ( Today’s Best ) this morning. The nerve of some people and when confronted by myself she flat out lied and said she drew the image…. I am hoping this situation gets taken care of as soon as possible as it can be a real pain to any artist! Please pray this gets resolved a.s.ap!
MiamiAngel has removed the products with my art on it but remains smug remaining as she is the one that created it and tells lies that others are also claiming the work at their own. BEWARE of her and other art thieves out there…and to you art thieves be worried because stealing other people’s work holds you against a serious offense in the court of law.
